In the news …

MLB All-Stars announced — The All-Star rosters for both the American League and National League have been announced, with the MLB festivities scheduled for July 16 in Arlington, Texas. The Phillies are leading the way with seven players selected, and this year’s group skews quite young, with 32 first-time All-Stars, a good sign for the next generation of players. The NL is headlined by pitcher Paul Skenes, while Detroit Tigers ace and presumptive AL Cy Young favorite Tarik Skubal will be starting for the AL. 

Angel Reese sets WNBA record — Chicago’s Angel Reese is having quite the rookie season, and she just set a WNBA record on Sunday, putting up her 13th consecutive double-double. That 13th straight performance broke the record previously held by Candace Parker, and Reese is at least making the Rookie of the Year a conversation in the WNBA, as Caitlin Clark has been a massive favorite for months. Clark still owns the scoring edge and is -390 to win the award, but if you wanted to join this Reese train, you can nab her at +250 to win Rookie of the Year.

Wimbledon continues on — The men’s quarterfinals in Wimbledon are in full flight, with a few matchups already determined by the time this hits your inbox. You may be able to nab a live bet on Holger Rune right now if he’s looking OK against Novak Djokovic, as Action Network’s tennis experts liked the price on Rune at +280 prior to the 12:30 p.m. ET start. We’ve got plenty of women’s Wimbledon action too, namely backing Danielle Collins this morning against Barbora Krejcikova. Be sure to hop over to our sports betting hub each morning, when the tennis action is gearing up to hit the grass.
