Dave Tuley’s ATS report

  • NBA: Favorites went 5-1 SU & 4-2 ATS with only outright upset by Thunder (+5.5, +190 ML vs. Lakers!); Wizards (+10.5 vs. 76ers) covered in loss; underdogs still hold slim 18-17-1 ATS lead since restart with 1 pick-’em; O/U 3-3 & Overs lead 19-18. NBA MATCHUPS & RECAPS.
  • MLB: Underdogs went 10-6 SU, including Marlins (+105 & -104) sweeping Orioles in 7-inning doubleheader; biggest winning dog was Mets (+195 at Nationals) followed by Giants (+155 at Rockies); Unders went 11-5 and lead 93-68-4 (57.8%) on season. Road teams went 11-5 & now lead again at 84-82 SU on season. Note: I was grading NYY-PHI & MIA-BAL "home/away" doubleheaders as 2 home games apiece for the host teams, PHI & BAL, but "road" teams were 3-1 even if counting the team batting 1st. MLB MATCHUPS & RECAPS.
  • NHL: Blackhawks beat Oilers 4-3 late Wednesday, take 2-1 series lead in best-of-5. Blackhawks were +110 underdogs, capping day in which NHL dogs went 5-1 SU as FLA (+110 vs. NYI), ARI (+115 vs. NAS), TB (-105 vs. BOS) & MTL (+145 vs. PIT) also pulled upsets. COL (-135 vs. DAL) only favorite to win as faves dip to 15-12 SU overall with 1 PK; Over/Unders went 2-2-2 with pushes on NYI-FLA (5) & NAS-ARI (5) but Unders still lead 16-10-2; 1st Period Overs went 4-2 but 1P Unders still lead 17-11.
