Wednesday Betting Recaps
Wednesday featured a full 15-game MLB schedule (though the Angels-Tigers game was postponed, so just 14 games played).
For those playing the Women’s World Cup, there was also the U.S. playing to a 1-1 draw with Netherlands. The Draw was +270 in 3-way betting (in which bettors on Team USA or the Netherlands lost) while the U.S. failed to cover in 2-way betting as 0.5-goal favorites at -160 or 1-goal favorites at +120. The game pushed on the betting total of 2 goals.
