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 first full week of the 2022 Major League Baseball season’s second half with a 12-game slate on Monday. An NL East showdown between Atlanta and Philadelphia is part of the schedule, while familiar foes Texas and Seattle will meet again after also facing each other right before the all-star break. Monday’s lone ESPN+ contest features Colorado and Milwaukee at 8:10 pm ET.

It’s time to take a look at the three components of today’s mega parlay.

Reds -1.5 (+145)

Braves -1.5 (-110)

Orioles ML (+105)

Parlay odds: +859

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

Reds -1.5 over Marlins (+145)

The Reds should be able to get the job done with home-field advantage in this one. They have enjoyed the luxury of being at home since the second half of the season began, plus they just faced a much tougher opponent in the Cardinals and won that series. The Cards are a star-studded lineup with the NL MVP favorite in Paul Goldschmidt and Nolan Arenado, among others; the Marlins have no such guys. That’s been especially true in the last few weeks without Jazz Chisholm, and he is still not ready to return. He missed the All-Star Game and was out of the lineup for the last few games before the break. In turn, the Marlins’ offense took a turn for the worse, scoring just 1 run and getting shut out twice in their last 3 first-half games. Unfortunately for Miami, the time off did not make anything better. The Fish opened last week with an 8-0 loss to the Rangers and were shut out by the Pirates on Saturday. This is just about the best opportunity Cincinnati starter Hunter Greene has for another win, especially since he isn’t being opposed by Miami ace Sandy Alcantara.

Braves -1.5 over Phillies (-110)

The Phillies continue their home stand following a disastrous 3-game series with the Cubs in which they got swept. Those losses pushed Philadelphia out of the current final wild-card spot in the National League. Whereas the Phillies are 3-7 in their last 10, the Braves have been one of the best teams in baseball after starting the season 23-27. Since then Atlanta has gone 35-12 and is only 1.5 games back of the Mets in the NL East. Adding insult to injury for Philly, the visitors will have ace Max Fried on the mound tonight. Earning his first all-star spot, Fried is pitching to a 2.64 ERA and a 2.96 xERA – meaning he is throwing as well as his awesome numbers suggest. Ranger Suarez makes his 17th start for the Phillies and has suffered some major regression since last season. He is saddled with a 4.07 ERA this year and has already been torched by the Braves twice in 2022 (9 earned runs in 11.0 total innings). Atlanta should roll.

Orioles ML over Rays (+105)

These teams played early last week in Tampa, with the Rays taking 2 of the 3 games. That wasn’t a terrible result for Baltimore, and Tampa Bay isn’t going into this rematch with any momentum. They Rays stumbled this past weekend, losing 2 of 3 to the bottom-tier Royals. The projected starting pitchers are right-handers Corey Kluber for the Rays and Austin Voth for the Orioles. Kluber has been steady all season, going 6-5 in 18 starts with a 3.73 ERA and a WHIP of 1.12. Kluber’s last start was against the Orioles and he got the win but allowed 4 earned runs in 6.0 innings. Voth has been switching from the bullpen to the rotation in recent weeks. He has been decent as a starter, going 1-1 in 5 starts with a 3.50 ERA and a 1.17 WHIP. Voth’s last appearance was against the Rays last week, when he tossed 2.1 innings of 1-run, shutout baseball. Go with the O’s at plus money.
