Miami Marlins ML (-108) over San Francisco Giants
To start off this mega parlay, we have the Miami Marlins on the money line. While the 2022 season has been a struggle for the Marlins, Pablo Lopez remains a bright spot in the Miami rotation. With a 1.80 ERA through 10 starts, Lopez is quietly pitching at an elite level. The Marlins often win when Lopez gets the ball, and that spells trouble for the Giants, whose magic from a season ago seems to have worn off. Even with Logan Webb getting the start, it’s hard to envision the Giants putting up runs on the surging Lopez. In a game that is projected to be a low-scoring affair, I’ll back the hosts to secure a win on Saturday.

New York Yankees -2.5 alternate run line (+116) over Detroit Tigers
The second leg of this parlay has us backing the Yankees on an alternate run line. New York has established itself as the best team in the American League, and the AL East leaders showed their quality in a dominant 13-0 win over Detroit on Friday. I expect a repeat of that performance in the Bronx, especially considering the disparity in the pitching matchup. Luis Severino gets the call for New York, and the righty has pitched very well at home this season. He’ll be opposed by Beau Brieske, who has cracked 5 innings pitched just twice in 7 starts.
The Yankees offense has come alive after a few subpar efforts, and Aaron Judge and co. can be expected to produce once more on Saturday. If Severino gets off to a quick start, this one could get ugly.

Boston Red Sox -1.5 (+150) over Oakland Athletics
For the final leg of this mega parlay, we have the Red Sox on the run line. Boston has been up-and-down this season, but the Red Sox are actually fortunate to be on the road this weekend. The reason being is that the A’s are a league-worst 7-21 at home this season, where their offense continues to flounder. Nick Pivetta got off to a shaky start, but has surrendered only 6 runs in his last 34 innings. Even against Paul Blackburn — the A’s top starter — Boston’s offense should be able to scratch off a few runs in the early going.
Assuming Pivetta stays hot, the Red Sox should hold a lead heading into the late innings. And while we may have to sweat considering Boston’s suspect bullpen, I can’t ignore that eye-opening home record for Oakland. Back the Red Sox out west.
