Monday Betting Recaps

Monday was a pretty quiet day in the sportsbooks (and on the betting apps, if we’re being accurate with how most gamblers get and sweat their action in 2023).

The Cleveland Cavaliers routed the Houston Rockets 99-78 as 1.5-point underdogs to win the NBA Summer League championship here in Las Vegas (stayed Under betting total of 194 points), but most of the focus was on the 10-game MLB card.

As we’ll see below in our nightly recaps, faves went 5-3 with one pick-’em, but we also had a game suspended with the Giants and Reds tied 2-2 in the top of the 8th inning (for betting purposes, “Vegas rules” dictate that the result reverts back to the last completed inning – when it was also tied 2-2 – so moneyline bets are ruled “no-action” and refunded while runline and Over/Under wagers are also refunds since the game didn’t go 9 innings (or 8.5 if the home team is leading). Note: 1st Inning bets, First 3, First 5, etc. wagers are all graded as action.

Let’s get to the full nightly recaps that we post on Twitter @ViewFromVegas, then update the season-long betting stats.

MLB: Faves went 5-3 Monday with Dodgers-Orioles closing pick-'em in LA's 6-4 win, plus Giants-Reds no-action on game ML as it was tied 2-2 through 7 innings. The upsets were by Nationals (+122 in 7-5 win at Cubs), Rangers (+109 in 3-2 win vs. Rays) and Cardinals (-101 in 6-4 win vs. Marlins). Road teams led 5-4. Overs also went 5-4.


More MLB: On the season, faves improved to 806-569 with 23 games closing pick-'em. Home teams lead 722-674 with 4 neutral-site games, though road teams have been cutting into that lead lately. Unders' lead has been cut back down to just 672-668-59 with 1 no-action (note: tonight’s Giants-Reds game was technically a 2nd no-action on the total, but in the interest of the same number of games for faves/dogs, home/away and Over/Unders, I’m not going to include it here; the prior no-contest total was a game that was rain-shortened and ruled official, so the fave/dog moneyline and home/road results counted unlike tonight’s tie/refund for ML purposes.
