Wednesday Betting Recaps

Wednesday was the first day since October without any NBA or NHL games to look forward to as MLB will mostly fill our days until football season.

 

MLB favorites mostly dominated Wednesday, going 11-4 with one pick-’em. It was a little strange that the A’s had their 7-game winning streak snapped while the Rays were huge -280 road favorites (usually a team on such a winning streak is the chalk).
Let’s get to the specific details of Wednesday night’s action with our daily betting recaps, and then we’ll update MLB’s spread and total records (plus we’ll post the NBA and NHL playoffs betting stats one more time).

MLB: Faves went 11-4 with Yankees-Mets closing pick-’em with the Mets winning 4-3. The upsets were by the White Sox (+215 in 8-4 late win at Dodgers), Giants (+135 in 8-5 win at Cardinals), Marlins (+123 in 4-1 win at Mariners) and Phillies (+110 in 4-3 win at Diamondbacks). Road teams went 10-6. Over/Unders split 8-8. On the season, faves lead 586-419 with 16 games closing pick-’em Home teams lead 539-480 with 2 neutral-site games. Unders still hold slim lead at 495-490-35 with 1 no-action.

NBA (ICYMI): With the Nuggets’ wrapping up their 1st championship on Monday night (though they didn’t cover after closing as 8-point home faves vs. the Heat), faves finished 4-1 SU in the Finals, but just 3-2 ATS with the non-cover. Faves also finished 55-28 SU and 44-38-1 ATS (53.7%) overall in the playoffs with 1 game closing pick-’em. Home teams finished 50-34 SU & 44-39-1 ATS (53%). Unders went 4-1 in the series and led 42-40-2 overall. The zig-zag went 3-1 ATS in the series and led 38-30-1 ATS (55.9%) overall.

NHL (ICYMI): With the Golden Knights routing the Panthers 9-3 on Tuesday night to clinch the Stanley Cup Finals round, favorites swept 5-0 in the series, but underdogs still led 43-41 in the playoffs with 4 pick-’ems. Home teams finished 4-1 in this round, but road teams led 47-41. Overs finished 2-2 in this round and ended up leading 44-43-1 overall. The “zig-zag” dipped to 2-2 in the final round, but still led 41-32 overall.
