Dave Tuley’s ATS report

  • NBA: 3 games scheduled were postponed as players boycotted to protest against racial injustice and systemic oppression, led by the Milwaukee Bucks due to their hometown’s proximity to the events in nearby Kenosha, Wis. Most sportsbooks voided games wagers as "Vegas Rules" say a basketball game must be played on day scheduled, though some books have special playoff rules that say bets are action as long as they’re played. With playoffs on hold (today’s games unlikely & we’ll see what happens moving forward), let’s update our playoff betting results: favorites are 25-8 SU (75.8%) w/ 1 pick ’em while 21-11-1 ATS (65.6%); Overs have slim 18-16 lead; "zig-zag" teams 11-14-1 ATS. MORE NBA.
  • MLB: 4 postponements as 3 were boycotted by players to protest against racial injustice (led by Brewers’ home game in Wisconsin vs. Reds, Padres vs. Mariners & Giants vs. Dodgers) with 1 due to Hurricane Laura (Astros vs. Angels). Favorites went 8-4 w/ only upsets by Braves (+159 in Game 1 of doubleheader sweep vs. Yankees), Indians (-105 vs. Twins), Tigers (+130 vs. Cubs) & Rockies (+120 vs. Diamondbacks); home teams went 9-3 & extend season lead to 233-209. Unders went 6-5-1 with the push on Twins-Indians (9); Unders increased slim lead on the season to 213-210-17 with 2 no-action totals. MLB MATCHUPS & RECAPS.
  • NHL: Favorites went 2-0 with Flyers (-111 as 7 Vegas books had them favored in 4-3 win vs. Islanders) & Avalanche (-150 in 6-4 win vs. Stars) winning as chalk; Lightning routed Bruins 7-1 in game that closed pick ’em (at 8 Vegas books). Underdogs still lead 4-3 so far in 2nd round with 3 pick ’ems (all in Lightning-Bruins series); Overs went 3-0 & now lead 7-3 this round. NHL MATCHUPS & RECAPS.
