Wednesday Betting Recaps
Welcome to our daily recap of the sports betting action from the day before as dogs continued to bark in MLB at 9-7 (18-12 the last 2 days).
The Vegas Golden Knights pulled a minor upset in Game 1 of their NHL Western Conference semifinal series vs. the Oilers, but the chalk won easily in the other NHL game – Hurricanes in their Game 1 win vs. the Devils – and the lone NBA playoff game with the Celtics routing the 76ers to even their series.
Without further ado, let’s get to the details in our sport-by-sport recaps as well as updating the side and total records in each sport.
