MLB Divisional Series Parlay Picks (+235) (Bet $100 to win $235)

  • Phillies (+120)
  • Dodgers (-190)

There are only two games for tonight's MLB slate. Both games are Game 2 of the NLDS.

I've got the Phillies earning another win over the Braves today. Zack Wheeler will take the mound for the Phillies, and he's been excellent. Wheeler has a 2.52 xFIP over the last 30 days with 25.7% of strikeouts and just 2.7% of walks. The righty has also earned nearly 64% of ground balls and has kept line drives and fly balls below 20%. Plus, the Braves have struck out 24% of the time against righties in the last 30 days.

On the other hand, Kyle Wright will get the call for the Braves, He's got a 3.39 xFIP over the last 30 days. Wright won 20 games this year. He's the real deal. But Philadelphia will more than likely put the ball in play more. Wright has allowed over 48% of hard contact in the last 30 days, along with about 22% of line drives. Let the top of the order for Philadelphia cook. Take the Phillies in an upset win.

Meanwhile, the Dodgers will send Clayton Kershaw to the mound. He's got a 2.96 xFIP over the last 30 days. The lefty pitcher also earns over 30% of strikeouts and keeps walks down while inducing 48% of ground balls. The Padres have four hitters striking out at least 28.6% of the time.

On the flip side, Yu Darvish will get the call for the Padres. Darvish has a 3.66 xFIP with 26.4% of strikeouts and 2.4% of walks. He won't get a high ground ball rate and has given up 53.8% of fly balls. He's allowed a .164 ISO to lefties over the last 30 days, which is his only blemish. But guys like Freddie Freeman, Max Muncy, and Cody Bellinger have power from the left side. I'll take my chances with the Dodgers.

MLB Divisional Series Total Runs Parlay Picks (+290) (Bet $100 to win $290)

  • Phillies vs. Braves Under 7 (+100)
  • Padres vs. Dodgers Under 7 (-105)

The postseason has already been weird. We've watched Max Scherzer and Justin Verlander get shelled in their first starts in the postseason. So it's hard to know exactly what we're going to get. But I'll stick by the analytical numbers, take my 30-day sample size, and continue attacking.

As I said above, I like the Phillies to put more pressure on Kyle Wright in today's game. The Atlanta Braves are always going to be hit-or-miss. They're a home run or strikeout type of team. Zack Wheeler will earn a high rate of strikeouts, and he's kept those ISO numbers down against both sides of the plate. Meanwhile, the Phillies are only hitting a .173 ISO and wOBA of .313. They've got potential at the top of the order but don't have insane potential offensively against Wright. I'm on the Under.

In a game between Darvish and Kershaw, I'm taking the Under. Darvish and Kershaw have both kept their walks down. The Dodgers might have a bit more potential offensively from the left side against Darvish. But only three batters in that Los Angeles lineup have hit a wOBA of above .331 over the last 30 days against righties. On the other hand, the Padres have four batters striking out over 28% of the time against lefties. Facing Clayton Kershaw won't help that situation. Juan Soto even has a .000 ISO against his last 30 lefties. So let's back the Under in this game too.
