Wednesday Betting Recaps
Wednesday was your typical hump day in the middle of the dog days of summer, except that dogs were going crazier than usual as they actually led 9-6 straight-up on the full MLB schedule.
One note that I didn’t include in my nightly recaps on Twitter @ViewFromVegas is that home dogs went an impressive 5-1 on the night (I saved that just for my regular VSiN readers of these ATS Reports). The only dog that failed to win at home: the lowly Kansas City Royals as they lost 3-2 to the Tigers as +135 home dogs.
Anyway, let’s get to those nightly betting recaps (also with more detail than we’re able to include in the 280-character Tweets), then update the season-long betting stats.
Underdogs dominated 9-6 on Wednesday with the biggest upsets by the Diamondbacks (+200 in 5-3 win at Braves), A's (+195 in 6-5 win vs. Red Sox), Twins (+135 in 6-3 win at Mariners); Brewers (+125 in 5-3 win at Phillies), Pirates (+125 in 7-5 win vs. Guardians). Angels (+124 in 7-3 win vs. Yankees) and Orioles (+120 in 8-5 win vs. Dodgers). Home teams went 9-6. Unders led 8-7.
On the season, faves still lead 819-587 with 24 games closing pick-'em. Home teams lead 740-686 with 4 neutral-site games, though road teams have been cutting into lead lately. Unders improved very slim lead to 686-684-59 with 1 no-action
