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 three months ago, and the action has been jam-packed. Why not celebrate the start of a new week and go for a big payday on Monday? That’s right; we’re back with another MLB mega parlay, this time a three-teamer with a payout north of 12/1, and we’re counting on the Brewers to win big.

We cashed our mega parlay last Monday at +1148 odds; let’s make it two Mondays in a row! We also cashed our MLB same game parlay at +1025 last night.

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.

Cincinnati Reds -1.5 (+130)

Milwaukee Brewers -1.5 (+150)

Chicago White Sox -1.5 (+140)

Parlay odds: +1280

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

Cincinnati Reds -1.5 (+130)

The Reds just split a four-game series with the Braves over the weekend, but their offense as a whole has been very good lately. This Cincinnati lineup doesn’t get enough credit for being top-eight in virtually every offensive category. The Phillies have been awful on the road yet again this season, and are just 4-8 in their last 12 overall.

Philly is also starting Spencer Howard here, a 24-year-old who has a career ERA of 5.77 in 10 career starts. He’s yet to go deeper than four innings in any of his eight appearances this year, which means we’re going to see a lot of this shaky Phillies bullpen. Reds starter Wade MIley on the other hand is in the midst of a fantastic campaign. Miley has a 2.85 ERA, and has given up two earned runs or fewer in six straight starts.

Milwaukee Brewers -1.5 (+150)

The Brewers are really starting to heat up. They enter this one having won five in a row, and seven of their past eight. They’ve pulled three games ahead of the Cubs, who can’t hit anything right now, in the NL Central. Chicago just lost three in a row to the Dodgers, and the state of their offense is pitiful. They’ve now scored two runs or fewer in 11 of their past 14 games.

They let Julio Urias and Clayton Kershaw rack up 12 strikeouts each on back-to-back days Saturday and Sunday. Brewers starter Freddy Peralta has a 2.11 ERA through 14 starts, but oddsmakers still aren’t giving the young Dominican enough respect yet. The Brewers have unsurprisingly won five of his last six outings, and he’s given up two runs or fewer in all but two of his outings.

Chicago White Sox -1.5 (+140)

To wrap this mega parlay up and hopefully bring us home, we’ve got the White Sox. Chicago hasn’t played their best ball recently, but they picked up a 7-5 win on Sunday to give them some momentum entering this series. The White Sox also have very stark home/road splits that are worth factoring in here. They’re only 17-18 in 35 road games, but are 28-14 at home.

Kenta Maeda will start for the Twins here, and he’s been struggling this season. He’s got a 4.85 ERA and 1.44 WHIP. On the road his ERA is 5.40. Minnesota has had him on a very short leash, as he’s only made it to six innings in one of his 11 starts. That could be bad news for them, since the Twins’ bullpen has the eighth-highest ERA at 4.77.
