MLB Friday same game parlay (+1038 odds): New York Yankees vs New York Mets

Yankees vs Mets

Same game parlays always make it onto my card. Why? Because they’re fun and you can run up the odds on just 2 legs in the same game. We’re talking +1000 on 2 legs. That’s good action if you can get it. Tonight we have the New York Yankees taking on the New York Mets at 7:10pm ET on MLB Network. There has to be a way to get a runner and I think I may have stumbled on it.

New York Mets -2.5 (+350) *alt line

Jordan Montgomery over 5.5 strikeouts (+108)

Parlay odds: +1038

New York Mets -2.5 (+350) *alt line

It seems insane to back the New York Mets minus anything but is it? They are coming off 2 straight losses to the Miami Marlins, which is never good. Still, they’ve won half of their last 8 games and when you look at the wins, things seem promising. All but 1 of those 4 wins were by at least 4 runs and the other was a 2-run win. Tylor Megill is on the hill for the Mets and he’s been good this season. He’s coming off a game in which he gave up 4 runs in 6 innings of work, which isn’t great but it’s serviceable. He gets the Yankees tonight, who are hitting .199 over the last week as a team. They have struck out 4th-most in MLB and have a little league-looking .581 OPS over that span. Their once promising bullpen has the 4th-worst WHIP in MLB over the last 7 days, which further complicates things for Yankees backers. This isn’t that crazy and at +350, it’s hard to say no.

Jordan Montgomery over 5.5 strikeouts (+108)

Jordan Montgomery Yankees

I know I have the Mets winning this one by at least 3 runs, but that doesn’t mean Jordan Montgomery will completely flake. Sure the Mets have a top-10 OPS over the last week and they’ve hit the 4th-most dingers in that frame too. But, even they get out and when they do, it’s a sit down. In fact, nobody has struck out more than the Mets in the last week. Nobody. In all fairness, they played 1 more game than everybody except the Nationals, but we don’t see Washington whiffing 74 times in 276 at-bats. Montgomery hit this number in a 8-3 loss to the Mets last time they played. He pitched only 4.1 innings that game. Tonight he gets the added bonus of getting to pitch to Tylor Megill, who is a strikeout king. Megill has whiffed 12 times in 21 at-bats this season and he could possibly get up to bat twice. I think we should use the “set it and forget it” method on this one.
