Tuesday Best Bet Results

Tuesday was a travel day for Team Tuley as we headed west from the home office in North Las Vegas to the islands of Hawai’i for a little family vacation with the kids out of school for summer break.

I’ll keep this short as it was a long day of traveling and the time difference has thrown me for a loop (games end early here, around 6:30-7 p.m. Island Time), so I posted my daily ATS Report at VSiN.com, dozed up and got back up to midnight to post this.

As for my Best Bets in these columns, I won my top play on the Celtics +1.5 at the Heat as they won 116-99 as a contrarian play (and also a “zig-zag” play) with the whole world seemingly jumping off the Boston bandwagon and throwing them under the proverbial bus (kinda mixing my metaphors here).

Anyway, I did lose my Reds First 5 Innings +115 play vs. the Cardinals. The 1-1 record dropped our May record to just below 60%, still impressive at 31-21-7 (59.6%) considering many of my plays are plus-money underdogs. We’re also still showing a net profit of $1,197.82 based on $100 flat bets, according to the VSiN Pro Picks page

Let’s look for more Best Bets on Wednesday. There’s no NBA game as the Nuggets await the Heat-Celtics winner and I’m passing in the NHL as I’m not about to take the Hurricanes as short -105 road dogs with them down 0-3.

MLB Wednesday Best Bets

Brewers First 5 Innings -110 vs. Astros: This is an anti-swagger play against the Astros, who just had their 8-game winning streak snapped in a 6-0 loss to these Brewers on Tuesday night. It’s a pretty even pitching matchup with Milwaukee’s Adrian Houser (0-0, 3,07 ERA) vs. Houston’s Brandon Bielak (1-1, 2.89 ERA).

Blue Jays First 5 Innings +165 at Rays: This is a mini-swagger play on the Jays as they snapped their 5-game losing streak in a big way yesterday with a 20-1 rout of the Rays. It’s tough to fade Tampa Bay’s Shane McClanahan (7-0, 2.05 ERA), but we’ll bank on the Blue Jays’ offense coming off that confidence-building win as well as Yusei Kikuchi (5-1, 4.08 ERA) to keep them in the game early. And it’s a juicy price that makes it a value play.
