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 getting the weekend in Major League Baseball started with a full 15-game slate on Friday, all of which are in the evening or at night. A 7:05 pm ESPN+ showdown between the Astros and Yankees headlines the action, while the Cardinals-Cubs rivalry is one of two contests on Apple TV+.

Following plenty of MLB parlay success earlier this week, let’s try to keep it going with this three-team mega parlay!

Athletics ML (+116)

Blue Jays -1.5 (+115)

Cardinals -1.5 (+125)

Parlay odds: +945

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

Athletics ML over Royals (+116)

Oakland is not enjoying a good week, losing on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday by a combined score of 19-3. Heading into Friday, the last time the A’s have scored more than four runs was back on June 11. But there is some good news: they face the Royals tonight! Kansas City’s young players have been unreliable to say the least, while veterans like Salvador Perez and Whit Merrifield have struggled. It is hard to see how this team improves and it might be gutted further by trades. More good news for Oakland: Cole Irvin is on the mound. He was solid last season and has been even better this year. As for Zack Greinke, his return to Kansas City is not going well so far. As bad as this team is, getting Oakland at plus money is a steal in this situation.

Blue Jays -1.5 over Brewers (+115)

Toronto enjoyed an off day on Thursday and is looking to build on Wednesday’s win over the White Sox. It was not the best of series, but at least the Blue Jays’ bats continued to do damage – including 9 runs in the win to avoid the sweep. The Brewers lost two of three to the Cardinals earlier this week and start the weekend a game behind St. Louis in the National League Central. With Brandon Woodruff and Freddy Peralta hurt, they are forced to lean more on their entire roster and that is a challenge with Christian Yelich still struggling. Things won’t be easy against Alek Manoah, who has been great for Toronto this season. You can make an argument that he has become one of the most consistent starters in the game and he barely has a season under his belt. He has yet to throw fewer than 5.0 innings in a game this season and only the Yankees and the Rays have beaten him.

Cardinals -1.5 over Cubs (+125)

These teams played for the first time earlier in June in a five-game series at Wrigley Field and the Cardinals left with three wins, outscoring the Cubs 32-25. St. Louis should have another favorable matchup this time around. The Cardinals are the better team this season, which is no surprise of any kind. Chicago is 6-14 in June and is saddled with the fifth-worst winning percentage in Major League Baseball. Kyle Hendricks enters this game with a 5.43 ERA. The Cardinals have a lineup that can score runs at a clip the Cubs just can’t keep up with and that will likely be the case on Friday.
