There are plenty of solid matchups to target on this Friday night, so let’s dive into this +1548 parlay.  Why not?

Let’s walk through the MLB slate and each leg, and remember, a couple of bucks can go a long way here.

MLB Best Bet: +1548 (Bet $100 to Win $1548)

Austin Riley (ATL) 2 total bases (-115)

Riley might have the hottest bat in all of baseball.  He has at least one hit in his last 10 games and has hit 2 total bases in 8 of his last 10 games.  In his career against Patrick Corbin, he is batting .292 (including 3 singles, 3 doubles, and a home run).  Good enough for me.

Teoscar Hernandez (TOR) 2 total bases (+115)

Hernandez has had the hot bat of late, and on top of that, he’s got a matchup he has dominated against Zack Greinke (batting .714 in 7 plate appearances).  He’s also cleared his total bases line in 4 of his last 6 games.

Jose Abreu (CWS) 2 total bases (+100)

Abreu is another player who has been on a tear.  He has hit 2 total bases in 4 of his last 5 games and 7 of his last 10 games.  He bats .305 off left-handed pitchers, and Devin Smeltzer allows right-handed batters to hit .261 off him.

Nolan Arenado (STL) 2 total bases (+110)

Arenado has a hit in 8 of his last 10 games and has now hit 2 total bases in his last two games.  He goes up against Hunter Greene tonight, and he is 2-3 (.667) off him with a single and a double.  I like this spot for Arenado tonight.
