Sunday Betting Recaps

Sunday was another busy sports betting day with a little bit of everything for everyone: conclusion of the British Open, baseball, soccer (women and men), auto racing (NASCAR and Formula 1), WNBA, etc.

For our purposes here, I’ll stick to the so-called “stick-and-ball sports” (I’m including golf because, well, each player carries a bag of sticks, right?), and then update the season-long betting stats.

Golf: Brian Harman pulled away to win the British Open (we still call it that instead of "The Open Championship" or "The Open"). The ViewFromVegas is he was around 125-1 pre-tournament (we saw as high as 145-1 at Circa Sports in Nevada), 20-1 after the 1st round on Thursday, +125 after the 2nd round on Friday and -225 after Saturday's 3rd round and heading into Sunday's final round.


MLB: Favorites went 8-7 on Sunday with biggest upsets by Tigers (+188 in 3-1 win vs. Padres), Orioles (+135 in 5-3 win at Rays to take 2-game lead in AL East) and Blue Jays (+127 in 4-3 win at Mariners). Home teams went 10-5. Unders led 9-5-1 with push in Cubs' 7-2 win vs. Cardinals with betting total of 9 runs.

More MLB: On the season, faves lead 847-612 with 25 games closing pick-'em. Home teams lead 773-707, going 20-10 the last 2 days after road teams had been cutting into lead recently, with 4 neutral-site games. Unders improved slim lead to 716-705-62 with 1 no-action.

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.
