MLB Picks Today: Building a +952 Parlay Around the Braves, White Sox, Blue Jays, Mariners
Monday's Longshot Parlay of the Day:
So far on the season, we have only hit one of these longshot parlays but there is no better day to hit number 2 than today. Let's dive into the MLB slate and find some winners for tonight.
First Leg: Braves ML -140
I have a full article write up on why I like Braves for my Play of the Day but basically, Gray has really struggled at home and now things will not get any easier for him as he faces one of the hottest teams in the league. Gray has been pitching well as of late, but I think that success stops here as I see the Braves getting to him for 2-3 homers and 4-5+ runs. I like Braves RL tonight too, but I am just rolling with ML for this longshot parlay.
Second Leg: White Sox F5 ML -125
Tonight, is the long-awaited return of White Sox ace, Lance Lynn, who was phenomenal for them last season. Lynn was the ace that they desperately needed, and they have missed him greatly through the first third of the season as he was dealing with an injury. I fully expect him to pick up right where he left off last season and pitch well tonight to take a lead into the 6th inning. The Tigers really struggle to score runs on the offensive end and are one of the bottom 5 offensive teams in the league. I think this is a perfect spot for Lynn to make his debut against a very lackluster Tiger's offense and Rony Garcia for the Tigers should regress a bit after a very strong start against the Yankees in his last outing.
Third Leg: Blue Jays -1.5 -130
This is about as square as it gets but it is hard to not have action for this matchup given the circumstances. Alek Manoah is on the mound for the Jays tonight and it has almost been an autobet to back the Blue Jays in his starts. Manoah is looking like an early candidate for Cy Young and think he will have a lot of success tonight against this Orioles squad. On the other side for the Orioles will be Kyle Bradish who has really struggled against the better teams in their division. He got lit up by the Yankees, Red Sox, and Rays and I do not think this is the game where he figures it out.
Fourth Leg: Mariners F5 ML -110
The Mariners are coming off a very interesting series with the Boston Red Sox in which nearly every game was a nail biter and was decided in the 8th or 9th innings. They were unable to win yesterday's game as Devers annihilated a homer in the 8th inning which ended up being the deciding blow, but I think the Mariners will bounce back early today. Chris Flexen is on the mound for the M's and he has always done much better at home across the last 2 years for the Mariners compared to his road starts. I also expect Chris Archer to regress a lot after putting together his 2 best starts of the season against the Tigers and Yankees.
