Yankees ML (-135)

Cardinals vs Brewers under 8 (-110)

Guardians -1.5 (+115)

MLB parlay odds: +615

For this MLB parlay I am going with a bet on the Yankees money line, plus the Guardians on the run line and a Game to go under the total. Let’s break down each of the 3 legs.

New York Yankees ML over Houston Astros (-135)

To start off our MLB parlay, I’m going with the New York Yankees on the money line. These are a pair of teams trending in completely different directions, with the Yankees riding a 5-Game winning streak while the Astros are in the midst of a 4-Game losing streak. Over the past week the Yankees’ bats have been on fire, boasting a team batting average of .281 and an OPS of .854. In contrast, the Astros have struggled offensively — sitting at 22nd in the league with a very poor .219 batting average and a .662 OPS. New York has flourished in this series thanks in large part to Juan Soto and Aaron Judge, with Judge batting .450 with 2 home runs and 6 RBIs while Soto is hitting .400  with 1 home run and 8 RBI over the past week. The Yankees are also getting solid production from Marcus Stroman on the mound, who is 2-1 with a 3.41 ERA. I’m expecting more of the same in this AL matchup, so let’s take New York to complete the sweep.

St. Louis Cardinals vs Milwaukee Brewers under 8 (+100) 

For the second leg in our MLB mega parlay, I’m going with this NL Central matchup to stay under the total. Milwaukee has a tall task ahead of them if the Brewers want to find any success against Sonny Gray in this one, as the righty is posting career-best numbers in several categories outside of the baseline ERA and WHIP: 28.9% K-BB%, 33.3% strikeout rate, 4.4% walk rate, 12.8% swinging-strike rate. Gray has simply been incredible, surrendering just 3 runs in 30.1 IP this season. It’s safe to say the Cardinals will have their work cut out for them at the plate, and the expected numbers for Brewers starter Tobias Myers suggest that positive regression is on the way for the Milwaukee pitcher. With that in mind, let’s back the under in this rivalry matchup.

Cleveland Guardians -1.5 over Chicago White Sox (+100) 

To close it out this MLB parlay, I’m going to be backing the Cleveland Guardians on the run line. While Cleveland’s hitting has been middling this season, ranking 17th in the league with a .240 team batting average and a .703 OPS, the White Sox are much worse at the dish. In fact, Chicago is 29th in the league in team batting with a .211 batting average and a .597 OPS. for the campaign. For our wager, it helps that Guardians is sending right-hander Ben Lively the mound, who holds a 1-1 record and an impressive 2.08 ERA to this point in the season. In his last outing against the Angels, he tossed 6 innings of 1-run ball while striking out 5 hitters, and I expect a similar result in this one. Let’s get to the window with the Guardians against a poor White Sox team.
