Monday Betting Recaps
Compared to another very busy sports betting weekend, Monday was a relatively light betting day, highlighted by a 10-game MLB card with the majority of teams getting a travel day during the dog days of summer
And speaking of dogs, they dominated for the most part on Monday. So, let’s get to our nightly betting recaps that we post on Twitter @ViewFromVegas, and then update the season-long betting stats for favorites/underdogs, home/road teams and Over/Unders.
MLB: Underdogs went 7-3 on Monday with the biggest upsets by the Angels (+180 in 4-1 win at Braves), Nationals (+180 in 5-3 win vs. Brewers), Rockies (+177 in 4-3, 10-inning win vs. Padres late night) and Orioles (+128 in 4-2 win at Blue Jays). The other winning dogs were the Reds, (+113 in 6-5 win at Cubs), Diamondbacks (+110 in 4-3, 11-inning win at Giants) and Phillies (+100 in 4-2 win at Marlins).
