MLB Playoffs same game parlay (+758 odds): Milwaukee Brewers vs Atlanta Braves

Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman slides safley into home as Brewers catcher Manny Pina is unable to handle the throw during the third inning of Game 2 parlay

The Atlanta Braves took a commanding 2-1 lead in the NLDS with a 3-0 victory on Monday.  Today, the Milwaukee Brewers will try to stay alive in Game 4.  With so much on the line, it is sure to be a fascinating battle.  The only way it could possibly be better is if we could bet on it, which we can.  How cool is that?

I have a 2-leg same game parlay in mind for this Game 4 matchup, and I will share it here this morning.  Before I do so, be sure to check out all of our full game previews for each matchup today.  You can also follow me on Twitter for any added plays throughout the day.

Braves -1.5 (+146)

Freddie Freeman to hit a home run (+420)

Parlay odds: +758

This parlay is paying out north of 7/1 odds on FanDuel Sportsbook.  Let’s break it down each leg at a time:

Braves -1.5 (+146)

The Brewers have scored a total of 2 runs through 3 games in this series.  Those 2 runs came on a single swing, and Milwaukee has now been held scoreless in 19 consecutive innings.  Things won’t get any easier today against Atlanta starter Charlie Morton.  The veteran right-hander started Game 1 on Friday and despite pitching well, he took the loss.  Morton is looking for revenge today, and he should be confident in his ability to do just that.  Morton is throwing the ball on short rest, but that shouldn’t be a huge cause for concern.  He is a seasoned veteran who has a ton of postseason experience.  He’s used to pitching in big games on short rest, and he’s facing a Milwaukee offense that hasn’t been able to get anything going in this series.

Eric Lauer has been solid for Milwaukee on the mound, but it’s hard to trust their offense.  The Brewers are 0-for-16 with runners in scoring position this series and their once dangerous offense has hit a wall as their lineup is barely getting runners on base.  Every arm should be available out of the Braves bullpen, and the Braves have the home field advantage.

Freddie Freeman to hit a home run (+420)

Sometimes in a same game parlay you’ve got to get a little crazy.  That’s what we are doing here.  Offense has been fairly hard to come by for both teams in this series, but the long ball has provided some big moments.  Today is a game in which the Braves can move on to the NLCS, and they could do it at home.  Freddie Freeman is one of the unquestioned leaders of that clubhouse, and he tends to come through in big moments.  I like his chances at giving us some fireworks.  Freeman was second on the team with 31 home runs in the regular season.  He is no stranger to the postseason, and Lauer allowed 2 home runs in his last start of the season against the Dodgers.  If Freeman is going to make things happen, this seems like an ideal day to do so.
