I'm an editor here at Pickswise who was raised in a household full of sports fanatics. Since I unfortunately never had LeBron James' jumping ability I wasn't able to make it to the NBA, and chose writing about sports as the next best thing. An avid sports bettor myself, I'm excited to get to write about the industry as it gets set to take off across the country. Buckle up.

The 2021 MLB season kicked off almost two months 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 just north of 16/1, and we’re counting on the Yankees to win big.

We’ve been cashing these left and right. We cashed our MLB mega parlay last week on Wednesday at +1488 odds and also cashed our MLB mega parlay the Wednesday before at +1618 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.

Atlanta Braves -1.5 (+135)

New York Yankees -2.5 (+125)

Kansas City Royals -1.5 (+230)

Parlay odds: +1608

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

Atlanta Braves -1.5 (+135)

The Mets are 4-4 in their last eight games, and they certainly didn’t win those four games because of their offense. They’ve topped four runs just once in that eight-game span. In their last six contests, they’ve produced only 12 total runs. That kind of low offensive ceiling is exactly what I’m looking for when fading a team on the run line.

The Braves will start Ian Anderson, who has a 2.80 ERA this year. Mets starter Taijuan Walker has been great in 2021, but it’s hard to see him getting much run support. The Braves have scored at least four runs in six of their past seven, and in the one game in that span they didn’t, they still won 3-1. They recently won three games against the Pirates by a combined score of 33-3.

New York Yankees -2.5 (+125)

I don’t see how the Yankees don’t win this one in a blowout. Gerrit Cole starting against the Tigers, what more do you need to know? Cole is arguably the best pitcher in baseball, as he has a 1.81 ERA and 0.80 WHIP. He has 92 strikeouts in only 64 and 2/3 innings. In six of his ten starts, he’s given up one or zero runs. The Yankees have been coming on strong lately, with seven wins in their last nine games.

The Tigers had a brief hot stretch, but it was always clear that was going to be short-lived. They now enter this series with the Yankees having lost five of their last six. Things are starting to return to normal in Detroit. The Yankees have a great bullpen that has a 2.89 ERA, so don’t count on the Tigers scoring once Cole leaves the game either. Detroit on the other hand has the second-worst bullpen ERA in the entire league.

Kansas City Royals -1.5 (+230)

To give us the odds boost to truly make this a mega parlay, we’ve got the Royals -1.5. I’m not sure why Kansas City is a sizable underdog, considering they have a big edge on the mound. Young lefty Kris Bubic will start for the Royals, and he’s been fantastic lately. In his last four outings, he’s given up only two total runs and 11 hits in 21 2/3 innings.

The Royals are 5-3 in their last eight games and have been playing .500 ball for the year, so they certainly aren’t a doormat. Randy Dobnak will start for Minnesota, and he has a 5.75 ERA in 20 1/3 innings. The Twins have been better over the past week, but they were looking like one of the league’s worst teams before that. Minnesota also ranks 25th in MLB in bullpen ERA.
