MLB Picks: Friday Major League Baseball Parlay
3-Team Parlay - $50 Wager Wins $328.22
(1u) Phillies -1.5 @ +105
- Aaron Nola has a 1.081 career WHIP against the Marlins
- Phillies hitter have a lifetime .312 batting average against Sandy Alcantara
This one comes down to the fact that I don’t expect the Marlins to be very competitive in most games this season. Marlins hitters have a combined .258 batting average against Aaron Nola, and he’s yet to surrender a homer to anyone on their roster. Meanhwile, Phillies hitters have hit Alcantara well.
If you take a look at the lineups, outside of Brian Anderson, the Marlins don’t have much to offer. Meanwhile, the Phillies trot out the likes of Andrew McCutchen, Jean Segura, Bryce Harper and JT Realmuto.
Take the Phillies on the run line and enjoy what should be a comfortable win.
(1u) White Sox moneyline @ +105
- Twins hitters are batting just .221 lifetime against Lucas Giolito
- Chicago’s top prospect, Luis Robert, is making his major league debut
I like the Twins this season. I think Jose Berrios is a top-end starter and Minnesota will be good this year, but I also think Lucas Giolito is special and will show that on Opening Day.
Giolito showed last season why he was once baseball’s top prospects, after a disappointing 2018. I expect him to build on his momentum from 2019, when he finished 6th in AL Cy Young voting, and take the next step.
There’s also a lot to like about this Chicago lineup, featuring Tim Anderson, Yoan Moncada Yasmani Grandal, Edwin Encarnacion among others. Not to mention that we are finally going to get to see Luis Robert on in the MLB.
I like the White Sox in a close one.
(1u) Dodgers -1.5 @ -125
- The Dodgers have won five straight games against the Giants, dating back to 2019
- Ross Stripling has a 1.079 career WHIP against the Giants
I bet this last night and I’m running it back again tonight. The Giants are one of the worst teams in the Majors and the Dodgers are absolutely loaded.
Stripling has had some good success against San Francisco in his career, and the Dodgers have owned the Giants of late.
If I can get one of the best teams in the league -1.5 @ -125 against a team with almost no offensive firepower, I think I have to take it. I know it was a little too close for comfort on Thursday night, but the LA offense eventually showed up.
Lay the 1.5 and enjoy another cover from the Dodgers.
