Yesterday in Sports – A Legend is Born
Sunday’s Wimbledon men’s final marked the conclusion of an exhilarating two weeks of tennis at the All-England Club. World No. 1 Carlos Alcaraz pulled off an upset, defeating the four-time defending champion Novak Djokovic in an instant classic on Centre Court to claim his maiden Wimbledon title. Our experts finished off a stellar tournament of picks by going 3-1 on Sunday, and they also accurately predicted Carlos Alcaraz’s victory as a pre-tournament future at +350 odds! With this win, Carlos Alcaraz became the first Wimbledon champion since 2002 not to be a member of the “Big 4” (Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic, and Andy Murray).

In other games, the Mets managed to avoid a sweep against the Dodgers, the Rockies secured a series win over the Yankees, and the Orioles completed a sweep of the Marlins, bringing them within one game of first place in the AL East.

Best Bet in Sports Today: MLB
MLB: Miami Marlins ML (+105) over St. Louis Cardinals – 7:45 pm ET
Our expert has a strong pick of the day, backing the Miami Marlins on the money line. They consider Jesus Luzardo one of the most underappreciated pitchers in baseball, with an impressive 3.29 ERA and a 3.53 xERA in 19 starts. Luzardo has been dominant, limiting hitters to just a .225 xBA. He enters this matchup on a high note, having thrown a shutout in three of his last four outings, including against the Cardinals.
Facing Luzardo will be Miles Mikolas, who can be unpredictable but showed promise before the break. The expert expects a Marlins win in this matchup. Check out the full Marlins vs. Cardinals predictions for more in-depth analysis.
