MLB Saturday mega parlay 7/30 (+1131 odds): Trouble brewing in Boston
The weekend kicks off with 15 MLB games on Saturday, as baseball will be on throughout the day. With such a large slate, we have come up with a 3-team mega parlay for today’s action. Brewers-Red Sox is the first leg of this parlay to begin at 4:10 pm ET, while Athletics-White Sox and Twins-Padres won’t have first pitch until 7:15 pm ET.
For this parlay we are going with two favorites on the run line and one underdog on the money line. Let’s get into it!
Brewers -1.5 (+164)
White Sox -1.5 (+112)
Twins ML (+120)
Parlay odds: +1131
Milwaukee Brewers -1.5 over Boston Red Sox (+164)
The Brewers went into the all-star break on a 3-game losing streak, but they have come out red-hot in the second half of the season. Before Friday night’s game, the Brewers had won 5 of their 6 games since the Midsummer Classic. Their lineup is seeing a beach ball for a baseball because their offense ranks 3rd in batting average, 1st in on-base percentage, and 1st in OPS in the second half of the season. Eric Lauer will be on the mound for the Brewers and the lefty has already pitched well against some of the best offenses in baseball such as the Braves, Phillies and Padres.
He will face a Boston lineup that has struggled without Rafael Devers since they have won just 2 of their 7 games in the second half of the season, prior to Friday night’s game. If the Brewers struggle against Nick Pivetta, they will welcome the sight of the Red Sox bullpen — which has an 8.10 ERA since the all-star break. Expect Milwaukee to win big.
Chicago White Sox -1.5 over Oakland Athletics (+112)
Paul Blackburn was the sole all-star representative in Los Angeles, but he’s just lucky the votes were in before his last 2 starts of the first half of the season. Blackburn allowed 11 runs on 10 hits in his final 10 innings against the Astros and Rangers before the break. I wouldn’t be surprised if it was a sore back from carrying the Athletics in the first half of the season, but his troubles didn’t end in the first half of the year. In his first start back against the Rangers, Blackburn was shelled once again for 10 runs on 10 hits in just 4.1 innings.
Johnny Cueto was an excellent addition to the White Sox starting rotation in the first half of the season, and he capped it off by allowing just 3 runs in his final 20.0 innings. The Oakland offense has been comedy so far this season, so I expect the show to continue and Chicago to win with ease.
Minnesota Twins ML over San Diego Padres (+120)
For a starter with a 2.63 ERA, you would think his team would win more of his starts. The Padres are 1-4 in Musgrove’s last 5, but that’s mostly because he has been regressing. He has allowed 18 runs in his last 30.1 innings and will face a Twins offense that has excelled against right-handers. Minnesota ranks 5th in batting average and OPS against right-handed pitching and also ranks in the top 10 in slugging percentage and OPS since the all-star break.
Sonny Gray has had some of his best starts of the season on the road as his ERA drops to 2.96, his WHIP drops to 0.79 and opponents have a .174 batting average. Minnesota offers great value as an underdog in San Diego, so back the visitors for the win.
