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 MLB trade deadline is in the rearview mirror, and we now know more or less where things stand. Why not celebrate the weekend by going for a big payday on Sunday? That’s right; we’re back with another MLB mega parlay–this time a three-teamer with a payout north of 10/1, and we’re counting on the Phillies to keep on chugging.

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. On Friday, we went 11-4 on MLB sides.

I’ve been on fire with these mega parlays recently. I just cashed this MLB mega parlay on Tuesday at 12/1 odds, and I did the same thing the previous Tuesday at 13/1 odds. So let’s do it again on Sunday! That’s two out of the past seven mega parlays I’ve written cashing at 12/1 or better.

New York Yankees -1.5 (+125)

Philadelphia Phillies -1.5 (+120)

Detroit Tigers ML (+140)

Parlay odds: +1088

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

New York Yankees -1.5 over Seattle Mariners (+125)

Are the Yankees officially back? It sure looks like it. They’ve won five in a row, and are 15-5 in their last 20. Seattle on the other hand is just 3-8 in their last 11, and their record on the road is a full eight games worse than it is at home this season. They’ll start Yusei Kikuchi here, who had a 6.11 ERA in 5 July starts. He pitched against the Yankees about a month ago, getting tagged for 5 earned runs and 11 baserunners.

The Yankees have a .767 OPS against lefties like Kikuchi this season, compared to a .692 OPS against righties. New York rookie Luis Gil was fantastic in his first big league start this past week, tossing six scoreless innings. Against a soft-hitting Mariners lineup that ranks 27th in OPS this season, I don’t see any reason to believe he won’t be able to follow it up with another strong outing.

Philadelphia Phillies -1.5 over New York Mets (+120)

Speaking of teams that are picking up steam, the Phillies are on fire right now. They’ve now won 7 games in a row, capturing first place in the NL East in the process. Philly has all the momentum in the world, while the Mets look like a team that’s starting to fall apart. New York still can’t hit, and their pitching hasn’t been nearly as good as it was in the first half. They are just 2-8 in their last 10, and won’t be able to stop the bleeding with their anemic offense.

The Mets haven’t scored more than 5 runs in a game since July 21st. Phillies starter Zack Wheeler is in the midst of a great season, entering with a 2.57 ERA and 1.03 WHIP. In 13 home starts, his ERA is just 2.22. Mets starter Taijuan Walker was a great story at first, but he’s collapsed recently. He had a 9.00 ERA in July, and gave up 4 earned runs and 10 baserunners to the lowly Marlins in his first start of August. The Phillies will keep on rolling here.

Detroit Tigers ML over Cleveland Indians (+140)

The Tigers aren’t getting nearly enough respect. Since June 13th, they are 8 games above .500, but you’d never guess it from they way they’re covered. They’ve certainly been much better than the Indians, who are 6-12 in their last 18, have been. There has just no reason for them to be this significant of an underdog. Cleveland starter Zach Plesac has been nothing better than mediocre this season, entering with a 4.64 ERA.

His last time out, he got rocked for six earned runs and 10 hits by Toronto. This weak-hitting Indians offense put up only one run on Saturday, so I don’t see Plesac getting too much run support. I’ve been surprised by Wily Peralta’s strong run for the Tigers, but it’s hard to argue with his 3.47 ERA. He pitched against the Indians once earlier this season, and gave up only 3 hits and no earned runs in 5.0 innings.
