Since graduating from Davidson (The College That Stephen Curry Built), I have been writing about sports--just about any and all you can think of!--and coaching tennis in Atlanta, Ga. Beyond the four major sports, I am an avid tennis fan and cover the ATP Tour on a daily basis. If I'm not busy writing, you can generally find me on a tennis court or traveling the world wherever a sporting event takes me.

We have a full 15-game slate on Friday to begin the weekend in Major League Baseball. It includes an ESPN showdown between the Colorado Rockies and Miami Marlins. However, our three-team mega parlay relies on the Seattle Mariners, Atlanta Braves, and St. Louis Cardinals. Let’s take a look at the whole thing.

Seattle Mariners ML (+150)

Atlanta Braves -1.5 (+100)

St. Louis Cardinals -1.5 (+130)

Parlay odds: +1079

For this parlay we are going with two favorites on the run line and one underdog on the money line. Here is a breakdown of the three legs one by one.

Seattle Mariners ML (+150) over New York Yankees 

To a more impressive extent than any other club in baseball, the Mariners have stuck around longer than expected this year. With little star power in their rotation or their lineup, the M’s have been relying on team chemistry more than anything else to get through the season, something that was tested after general manager Jerry Dipoto shockingly traded closer Kendall Graveman to the division-rival Astros. But Seattle has kept on winning, and it heads into this weekend very much alive in the AL wild-card race at 6 games over .500. Veteran Marco Gonzales, a fixture of the rotation for the past half-decade, gets the ball on Friday. Gonzales has heated up of late, surrendering no more than 2 runs in any of his 3 starts since the All-Star break.

Atlanta Braves -1.5 (+100) over Washington Nationals

If you don’t know the name Kyle Muller, you will soon. Muller is delivering a standout rookie season with Atlanta with a 2.43 ERA and 1.15 WHIP in 7 appearances. The lefty has thrown his off-speed pitches more than 50 percent of the time this season and it has created a lot of weak contact from opponents; his weak-contact rate is higher than his solid contact and barrel rate. Following their sweep of St. Louis, the Braves have won 4 of their last 5 games and have the 6th-best batting average and 4th-best on-base percentage over the past week. Their offense is finally starting to heat up and hit on a consistent basis. Washington, which was a big seller at the trade deadline, is countering with Erick Fedde. He has a 7.76 ERA and 1.76 WHIP in his last 7 starts and has recently been hit hard by some of the worst offenses.

St. Louis Cardinals -1.5 (+130) over Kansas City Royals 

The Royals are playing out the string at this point. It has not been a good season, but they didn’t entirely blow up the team at the deadline (they did, however, unload starter Danny Duffy and designated hitter Jorge Soler). Mike Minor is taking the mound on Friday and he has been mediocre at best for Kansas City in 2021. Given that the Cardinals are playing at home (even though they just got swept there by Atlanta), this pitching matchup favors St. Louis. Adam Wainwright has been much better at Busch Stadium than on the road (2.79 home ERA; 4.93 road ERA). In 4 starts since the All-Star break, Wainwright has pitched at least 6.0 innings on every occasions.
