The 2021 MLB season kicked off over a month ago now, and the action has been jam-packed. Why not celebrate the start of the weekend by going for a big payday on Friday? That’s right, we’re back with another MLB mega parlay, this time a three-teamer with a payout of 13/1, where we’re counting on the Dodgers to turn things around.

We just cashed our MLB mega parlay on Tuesday at +1287 odds, let’s do it again on Friday. We’re going big and bold, so let’s not waste any more time. We’re diving in, but don’t forget to check out our picks for the side and total on every MLB game, with our team of experts in red-hot form to start the season.

Boston Red Sox -2.5 (+150)

Los Angeles Dodgers -2.5 (+155)

San Diego Padres -1.5 (+125)

Parlay odds: +1334

Let’s break down each of the three legs one by one.

Boston Red Sox -2.5 (+150)

The Red Sox have been tearing it up offensively, so they’re a team that makes a lot of sense on an alt run line. Each of their last three victories have been by at least three runs. In their three-game series against the Tigers they just wrapped up, Boston scored 28 runs. These lineups aren’t even close, and I’ll take Eduardo Rodriguez over Matt Harvey all day long.

The Orioles are 4-10 at home this year and have actually been much better on the road. As such, I wouldn’t give Baltimore any credit for home field advantage here. Boston is first in MLB in OPS, so they won’t have much trouble getting to Harvey and his 1.29 WHIP. The Orioles rank 27th in OPS.

Los Angeles Dodgers -2.5 (+155)

The Dodgers have been struggling, you already know that by now. But they’ve still got the most talented roster in the league, and have a huge edge on the mound here. It’s only a matter of time before their offense wakes up, and Julio Urias vs. Griffin Canning is a big mismatch. Urias has a WHIP of 0.90, showing how dominant he’s been. Over his last 19 innings, he’s given up only nine hits while striking out 27.

Canning on the other hand has an ERA of 6.20, and that’s even after giving up no earned runs in his last start. The Angels have lost six of seven, so it’s not like the Dodgers are the only ones slumping. The Dodgers will use this series against their crosstown rivals to reset, and should win big here.

San Diego Padres -1.5 (+125)

The Giants have been a great story, but oddsmakers have overreacted to their hot start. Getting this much plus-money with the Padres’ run line is a steal. The Giants have way overachieved their talent on offense, and now is the time to fade them. Public perception is at an all-time high on San Francisco, creating value the other way. San Diego is 5-2 in their last seven, and they’ll have Blake Snell on the mound here.

Snell has been solid with a 3.51 ERA, but the former Cy Young winner should be even better moving forward. He’s already started against the Giants twice, giving up just three total earned runs and seven hits in 10 innings. Giants starter Anthony Desclafini has also overachieved, and he started to falter his last time out. That was against this same Padres team, when he gave up three earned runs.
