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 All-Star break is officially a distant memory, and we’ve got full MLB slates again. Why not celebrate by going for a big weekend payday on Saturday? 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 Baltimore to roll over Detroit.

We’re going big and bold, so let’s not waste any more time. But before we dive in, 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.

I just cashed this MLB mega parlay on Tuesday at 13/1 odds, let’s do it again on Saturday!

Houston Astros -1.5 (+150)

Baltimore Orioles -1.5 (+158)

Philadelphia Phillies -1.5 (+105)

Parlay odds: +1220

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

Houston Astros -1.5 (+150)

The Astros have arguably the best offense in the league, and they’re on fire at the moment. Houston has scored at least eight runs in four straight games after Friday’s 9-6 win over the Giants. With that kind of offensive upside, they often make a lot of sense on the run line. Especially with a resurgent Zack Greinke on the mound. Greinke has a 2.74 ERA in four July starts, and the Astros are 15-6 in his 21 starts this year.

The Giants have been up and down the past couple weeks, and just lost two of three to the lowly Pirates. They just traded for Kris Bryant, but won’t have him in the lineup yet for this one. I’m not a big believer in Alex Wood, not after the past couple years he had. He’s been better in July, but had a 6.94 ERA in June. Houston can roll here.

Baltimore Orioles -1.5 (+158)

Don’t look now, but Baltimore has won five of their last seven games. They just beat Detroit on Friday, and should do it again Saturday with John Means on the mound. The Orioles have been scoring pretty consistently recently, so when they can get good pitching they’re not a bad team to back. Means is one of few bright spots on this staff, as the lefty enters with a 2.94 ERA and minuscule 0.87 WHIP.

He was understandably a bit rusty in his first couple starts after a six-week absence, and now is the time to buy low. Baltimore never has a better chance to win by a lot than when he’s on the mound. The Tigers are starting Matt Manning, a 23-year-old rookie with seven starts under his belt. He has a 6.00 ERA through those seven starts and his best outing came against a really weak Texas offense.

Philadelphia Phillies -1.5 (+105)

Speaking of the lowly Pirates, it’s almost never a bad time to fade them. Pittsburgh already had the worst offense in the league, and then they went and traded one of their few good hitters in Adam Frazier. They picked up a rare win in the first game of this series, but don’t expect that to carry over. In their previous four games, they had mustered only four total runs.

The Phillies will also get to face JT Brubaker. Brubaker has been bad luck for Pittsburgh all year, and they’ve lost each of the last eight times he’s taken the mound. Phillies starter Aaron Nola is coming off a gem of an outing, giving up only one run in 8 and 2/3 innings against the Braves his last time out. The Phillies got embarrassed on Friday, and should come out angry as a result.
