You can't win if you don't bet. That's a fact. I've been betting games for over 20 years and writing about it for the past 10. If there's a game, there's an angle. We just have to find it.

I always say, the more action the better. Today marks the first time we will have football on top of baseball so it’s a good time to remind you to watch your cash! This game we play can get wild so I like to have limits. I’m an all gas no breaks type but even I have a brain. When it comes to parlays, limits are needed so here’s what I do, no more than 10% of a straight bet for all parlays. Even the ones that I don’t think will lose! This will keep us in the game longer.

Since that’s out of the way, I noticed we have the Boston Red Sox and Cleveland Indians on Fox Sports 1 at 4:05pm ET. There has to be a way we can crank out a same game parlay for that one. Not just any low-T +400 parlay, but a real one we can all be proud of! Here’s what I have in mind!

Don’t forget that you can also follow me on Twitter for any other bets I might throw out throughout the day. You never know when magic will just drop on the feed. Follow now and turn on notifications.

Cleveland Indians -1.5 (+235) *alt line

Alex Verdugo to record 2+ hits (+135)

Parlay odds: +933

Cleveland Indians -1.5 (+235) *alt line

We have some of the best MLB handicappers in the world so it only makes sense to build on their picks. For a parlay, we don’t want a low-t +400 move since you have to win so many of those just to equal the massive haul of a +933. It’s common sense. I’m going somewhere with this, I promise. Our guys love the Indians to win straight up today so why not throw them -1.5 in our parlay? Cal Quantrill is on the hill for Cleveland and he has been borderline filthy lately. He is finally pitching deeper into games which is key because in his 2 starts that went 7 innings, the Indians won. Even better, both of those wins were by 3 or more runs. If we think the Indians will win and Quantrill will go at least 7 innings, why not start the same game parlay here? For more on this one, check out our full game preview for Boston Red Sox vs Cleveland Indians.

One of the best ways to boost the odds on these same game parlays is to add a hitter from the other team to mix. If I put in Amed Rosario of the Indians to have 2+ hits at +155, the parlay ends up being +540. That’s not bad and it does correlate but why not find a bigger payday? I could just as easily take Alex Verdugo to have 2+ hits at +135 and our parlay is now +933. It’s like magic, only real. Guys have 2+ hits in 2+ run loses all the time. Nobody here is calling for a Quantrill no-hitter today. Verdugo has 9 hits in his last 23 at bats and 3 2+ hit games in his last 5 contests. He’s seen Quantrill twice and recorded hits in both of those at bats. Plus he has sweet cleats. This isn’t crazy at all.
