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 the weekend by going for a big payday on Saturday? That’s right; we’re back with another MLB mega parlay, this time a three-teamer with a payout north of 16/1, and we’re counting on the White Sox to pull an upset.

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.

Boston Red Sox -1.5 (+115)

Chicago White Sox -1.5 (+194)

Detroit Tigers -1.5 (+170)

Parlay odds: +1462

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

Boston Red Sox -1.5 (+115)

The Red Sox have won four in a row, including the first two games of this series. I don’t see any reason to believe they won’t beat the Yankees again on Saturday. New York starter Jameson Taillon has been mediocre at best this season, and he’s been an absolute disaster on the road. In seven road starts, he has a 7.20 ERA. Red Sox starter Nathan Eovaldi has been mostly great lately.

He has a 3.06 ERA in three July starts, and it was 3.00 in June. He’s started twice against the Yankees this year, and has given up only two total runs. Boston’s offense is leaps and bounds ahead of the Yankees’ right now. Over the last 15 days the Red Sox are fifth in MLB in OPS at an impressive .835. The Yankees are 15th.

Chicago White Sox -1.5 (+194)

Getting pretty much 2/1 here with the White Sox is too good to pass up. The Brewers are 6-8 over their last 14 games, and certainly aren’t anything special. Sure Corbin Burnes has been great this year, but White Sox starter Carlos Rodon has been just as good. They have virtually identical ERAs and WHIPs. These offenses aren’t particularly close, as the White Sox are fourth in OPS over the last 15 days while the Brewers are 19th.

The season-long numbers are pretty much the same. Burnes’ success hasn’t exactly translated into team success, as Milwaukee is just 8-8 in his 16 starts this season. Chicago on the other hand is 11-5 in Rodon’s 16 outings. Over his last two, Rodon has allowed just eight total baserunners and only a single run.

Detroit Tigers -1.5 (+170)

The Tigers just got their seven-game win streak snapped on Friday, but I don’t think that disappointment will roll over into Saturday. Not with Casey Mize on the mound against Carlos Hernandez for the Royals. Hernandez has only 18 career appearances, and four starts, under his belt. In only 40 and 1/3 big-league innings, he has a 4.91 ERA and 1.64 WHIP.

Against a Detroit lineup that has been red hot the past couple of weeks, he should struggle once again. Mize has been a bright spot for the Tigers all season, entering with a 3.44 ERA and 1.11 WHIP. Detroit has won nine of the past 13 times he’s taken the mound. Kansas City has been one of the worst teams in the league over the past six weeks, and they’re just 11-29 in their last 40 games.
