After an eventful night across the MLB, we have another packed slate on Sunday with a number of great matchups. And what better way to celebrate a great day of baseball than by going for a big payday? That’s right; we’re back with another mega parlay with a payout of over 11/1 at DraftKings Sportsbook.

Before we dive in, don’t forget to check out our free picks on the side and total for every MLB game today. Let’s get into our mega parlay for Sunday.

Philadelphia Phillies ML (+125)

Houston Astros -2.5 alternate run line (+135)

LA Angels -1.5 (+135)

Parlay odds: +1142

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

Odds available at DraftKings Sportsbook at time of publishing. 

Philadelphia Phillies ML (+125) over Los Angeles Dodgers

To start off this mega parlay, we have the Phillies on the money line. Philadelphia has struggled to find its footing out of the gate this season, but its bats have come alive out west. The Phillies have scored a combined 29 runs through the first 3 games of this series, all of which resulted in wins. On the verge of a 4-game sweep against the NL-best Dodgers, Philadelphia turns to one of its top pitchers in Aaron Nola. Nola got off to a shaky start, but has since settled down in recent outings. With a high-powered offense behind him, expect Nola to throw with confidence in this one.

On the other side, it has been a week to forget for the Dodgers. First, LA lost 2 of 3 games to the Pirates on the road and then they put Clayton Kershaw on the IL. Returning home, the pitching has not been up to the Dodgers’ usual standards and right-handed prospect Michael Grove gets the start today. While Grove may deliver in his season debut, it’s fair to expect the young pitcher to struggle against a hot Phillies lineup. Back Philadelphia to stay hot and complete the sweep.

Houston Astros -2.5 (+135) over Washington Nationals

The second leg of this mega parlay has us backing the Houston Astros on an alternate run line. Houston has once again established itself as one of the better teams in baseball, as the Astros have won 9 of their last 10 games. Perched at the top of the AL West, the Astros offense is producing at a high level and their pitching has been solid. The exact opposite can be said about the Washington Nationals, who are at the bottom of the NL East and struggling in every department.

Washington handed the Astros their first loss in 12 contests on Saturday, which is why I expect Houston to bounce back. With an in-form Justin Verlander on the mound, the Astros shouldn’t need many runs to secure a victory. Furthermore, backing Houston to win convincingly also works as a fade of Patrick Corbin. Despite coming off his best start of the young season, Corbin still has an ERA over 6.00 and will be vulnerable against this deep lineup. Jose Altuve, Alex Bregman and Yordan Alvarez are more than capable of plating a few early runs, and the Nats bullpen isn’t much better. Look for Houston to close out the series in commanding fashion.

LA Angels -1.5 (+135) over Oakland Athletics

To close out this mega parlay we are going with the Los Angeles Angels on the run line. At long last, the Halos seem to have finally built a solid team around Mike Trout, Shohei Ohtani and Anthony Rendon. LA is beating teams in all phases of the game and looks like a serious contender in the American League. The Angels are one of the hottest teams in baseball, while the A’s are toward the bottom of the AL West.

This new and improved version of the Angels doesn’t just have to rely on their stars to get the job done. The Halos can pitch, and promising starter Patrick Sandoval gets the call today. Sandoval has allowed just 6 runs in 26 IP this season, and shouldn’t have much trouble with an inconsistent Oakland lineup. On the other side, Frankie Montas has had moments of brilliance in 2022. However, the right-hander has been at his best against much weaker competition than this red-hot Angels team. Even if Trout or Rendon struggle, look for Taylor Ward or Jared Walsh to pick up the slack at the dish. After splitting a doubleheader on Saturday, LA should close out the series in style in a half-empty Oakland Coliseum on Sunday. Back the Angels to take us home.
