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 kicking off the Major League Baseball week with a relatively small eight-game slate on Monday. Fewer than half of the teams (14 in total) are in action as two — the Atlanta Braves and New York Mets — are contesting a double-header. In fact, it will be the Braves’ second double-header in as many days as they played a pair against the St Louis Cardinals on Sunday. Also headlining Monday’s schedule is an ESPN showdown between the Los Angeles Dodgers and San Diego Padres.

Let’s take a look at our three-team mega parlay for Monday.

Rangers ML (+115)

Diamondbacks ML (+114)

Padres -1.5 (+160)

Parlay odds: +1148

For this parlay we are going with two underdogs on the money line and one favorite on the run line. Here is a breakdown of the three legs one by one.

Texas Rangers ML over Oakland Athletics (+115)

The Rangers have lost six games in a row, but they have to feel good about sending Kyle Gibson to the mound. Gibson leads Texas with an impressive 2.09 ERA and he has been great at home. In six starts at Globe Life Field he is 3-0 with a 0.96 ERA and .191 BAA. He has held opponents to two or fewer runs in 11 of his 13 starts this season and the Rangers are 8-5 in those 13 games. Frankie Montas takes the ball for the Athletics, and he has had some trouble with the Rangers throughout his career. In seven appearances against Texas he has a less than impressive 4.10 ERA and 1.56 WHIP. Opponents are hitting .262 against him this season and he has been giving up hard contact often. His hard-hit percentage ranks in just the 16th percentile among all MLB pitchers.

Arizona Diamondbacks ML over Milwaukee Brewers (+114)

Not one, not two, not three, not four, not five, not six, not seven … not 15, not 16 … No, the Diamondbacks have lost an unbelievable 17 games in a row heading into Monday’s date with the Brewers. However, the value on Arizona at plus money is actually quite good in this matchup. The good news is that the D-Backs are going up against Milwaukee starter Brett Anderson, who is arguably the team’s weakest pitcher right now. Anderson has not won any of his last eight starts. He faced Arizona on June 3 and surrendered three runs on eight hits in just 3.1 innings of work. Although the Diamondbacks didn’t win on Sunday, they were competitive in a 9-8 setback against the Dodgers. Their bats should stay hot enough to beat Anderson and the Brewers.

San Diego Padres -1.5 over Los Angeles Dodgers (+160)

Unlike Texas and Arizona, San Diego is going in the other direction. Although it hasn’t helped them much in the NL West standings, the Padres are on a four-game winning streak. They should make it five on Monday with Yu Darvish toeing the rubber. Darvish (6-2, 2.57 ERA) has faced the Dodgers twice this year and has given up only two runs on five hits in 14.0 innings of work. This is a fun matchup with Julio Urias, but Urias has cooled off over his past four starts (12 earned runs in 21.2 innings). It should also be noted that the Padres are much better at home (25-14) than on the road (17-18).
