Saturday Betting Recaps
Saturday was another busy sports betting day with the British Open and Women’s World Cup on the international stage, plus a full 15-game MLB schedule on U.S. soil.
I’ll leave the golf and soccer recaps to my co-workers as we’ll stick here to our nightly MLB betting recaps, then update the season-long betting stats.
