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 are beginning the weekend in Major League Baseball with a full 15-game slate on Friday. The Cardinals and Cubs are continuing their National League Central rivalry with an afternoon contest before the rest of the slate takes place at night. We will wrap things up with two of the best teams in baseball, the Mets and the Dodgers – a showdown that is part of this three-team mega parlay.

Here are the plays:

Rays -1.5 (+105)

Braves -1.5 (-115)

Mets ML (+140)

Parlay odds: +820

For this parlay we are going with an underdog on the money line and two favorites on the run line. Let’s break down each of the legs.

Rays -1.5 vs White Sox (+105)

The White Sox and Rays seem to be heading in opposite directions. Chicago was just swept by the Blue Jays, whereas Tampa Bay won the last 2 games against Texas. Nothing has come easy for the Sox with their injury struggles, and there is no hope in sight. They now have to travel from Toronto all the way down to Tampa and clearly they are not enjoying their time against the AL East. After grabbing their 30th win, the Rays should be in for a good start to their weekend. Shane McClanahan just faced arguably the best lineup in the league of Yankees and held them to just 1 solo home run in 6.0 innings. He also struck out 7 batters and now has at least 7 strikeouts in 9 of his 10 starts.

Braves -1.5 vs Rockies (-115)

Friday night will see a pair of pitchers with winning records go head-to-head, as Max Fried and Chad Kuhl take the mound for their respective teams. Atlanta will have the clear pitching advantage when its ace toes the rubber. Fried has shaped himself into the best pitcher on the Braves’ pitching staff and has been extremely consistent this season. Aside from his first start, Fried hasn’t allowed more than 4 runs in an outing and has given the Braves at least 6.0 innings in every start he’s made since April 19. His 3.10 ERA is just outside the top 10 in the NL and his 3.89 xERA doesn’t suggest a whole lot of regression. Fried is also posting the lowest walk rate of his career at only 4.4% while inducing a chase rate in the 95th percentile. The Braves should come away with a comfortable win.

Mets ML vs Dodgers (+140)

Baseball fans have to be excited about this series as it could very possibly be a preview of this year’s NLCS. The Mets and Dodgers own the best records in the NL, with the Mets already separating themselves from the Braves by more than 10 games in the East. Reminder: it’s only a few days into June. With all the noise surrounding both of these teams, where does the betting value lie on Friday night in Los Angeles? On the team well into plus-money. Chris Bassitt has been solid for the Mets this season and was effective in his last start against the Phillies, allowing 1 run on 2 hits across 6.0 innings. Go with the upset.
