Saturday Betting Recaps

Saturday was a busy sports betting day, though I missed most of it – or followed along with updates on my phone – while driving back home for 10 hours in the family truckster (holiday road, indeed) to wrap up our week-long San Francisco vacation and return to the broiler oven that is Las Vegas.

I’m glad I didn’t get involved too much as MLB favorites dominated for the most part on Saturday. Let’s get to our nightly recaps, and then update the season-long betting stats.

MLB: Faves went 11-4 on Saturday with the upsets by the Tigers (+193 in their combined no-hitter vs. the Blue Jays), Nationals (+181 vs. Rangers), Reds (+113 at Brewers) and Orioles (+108 at Twins). Home teams also led 11-4. Over/Unders split 7-7-1 with the push in the Orioles’ 6-2 win at the Twins with a betting total of 8 runs.

More MLB: Favorites improved to 763-547 on the season with 22 games closing pick-'em. Home teams lead 689-639 with 4 neutral-site games. Unders still hold slim lead at 640-634-57 with 1 no-action (thanks to 9-3-1 on Thursday) after going .500 each of the last two days.

A Numbers Game: Be careful betting baseball games right now, if they don’t involve teams still trying to make the playoffs. Teams that have clinched or teams that are completely out of it will be approaching games far differently. View more tips.
