We’ve taken the last two weeks off in the Tuley’s Takes home office as we spent spring break with the kids and, well, doing some spring cleaning.
If you follow me on Twitter @ViewFromVegas or my daily betting recaps that are posted in VSiN’s daily newsletter (shameless plug: the newsletter is a must-read for any sports bettor as it gives a great overview of the sports betting landscape and everything we’re doing at VSiN), you know that I’ve still been keeping up on everything in the world of sports despite being on vacation. Just like I’m sure you do as well.
I almost returned last week when Bill Adee sent out a message early in the week asking for “what we’ve learned so far in the baseball season,” but I didn’t feel I had anything worth sharing. Then underdogs went 10-6 straight up last Tuesday with one game (A’s-Diamondbacks) closing pick-’em. That was followed by dogs going 11-3 SU on Wednesday for a two-day run of 21-9 for 70 percent! Even more impressively, that made favorites and dogs 84-84 SU on the season with six games closing pick-’em. I always try to remind readers that they might see slightly different ATS betting results elsewhere but that mine are compiled from the average closing lines at the nine Vegas books on the Don Best screen (Circa, South Point, Westgate, BetMGM, Wynn, William Hill, Station Casinos, Golden Nugget and Treasure Island). Regardless, it’s amazing that dogs were winning half the games a few weeks into the season.
