MLB Sunday three-team mega parlay (+1344 odds): Cardinals complete sweep

The 2021 MLB season kicked off over a month ago now, and the action has been jam-packed. Why not celebrate the end of 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 of 13/1, where we’re counting on the Cardinals to sweep the Rockies.

We just cashed our MLB mega parlay on Tuesday at +1287 odds, let’s do it again on Sunday. We’re going big and bold, so let’s not waste any more time. We’re diving in, but 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 to start the season.

Minnesota Twins -1.5 (+102)

St. Louis Cardinals -1.5 (+160)

Oakland Athletics -1.5 (+175)

Parlay odds: +1344

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

Minnesota Twins -1.5 (+102)

Kenta Maeda got off to a very slow start, but given his 2.70 ERA last year I wasn’t too concerned. Unsurprisingly he started to turn things around last time out, giving up only two hits and no runs in his most recent start. Maeda gave up only two runs in six innings when he faced Detroit earlier this season, and that came at a time he was really struggling.

It’s hard to find too many reasons not to fade the Tigers these days. They may have won on Saturday, but Detroit is still just 4-18 in their last 22 overall. Each of their last eight losses have come by multiple runs, so I’m not worried about fading them on the run line. Tigers starter Matthew Boyd hasn’t pitched since April 29th, so he should be a bit rusty and out of sync.

St. Louis Cardinals -1.5 (+160)

The Cardinals should win this one big. Sure Adam Wainwright got roughed up by the Mets in his last outing, but he had just thrown a complete game in his start before. In his start before that, he threw seven innings of one-run ball. In other words, I’m not too concerned about one bad game. Wainwright has historically been much better at home, while the Rockies can’t hit on the road.

Colorado has an OPS of just .618 on the road, showing how once they leave the friendly confines of Coors Field they fall apart. The Cardinals scored nine runs in their victory on Saturday, so I feel pretty good about the offense going into this one. Rockies starter German Marquez has a 6.21 ERA this year, and didn’t even make it out of the first inning last time out.

Oakland Athletics -1.5 (+175)

It looks like Oakland is heating up again. The A’s started slow, then rattled off 13 straight wins, then went into a bit of a slump. Now it seems they’re hot again, having won five of their past seven. That includes each of the first two games of this series. Tampa has scored just four total runs across those games.

The Rays will start Shane McClanahan here, a rookie with only eight big league innings under his belt. Asking him to go on the road and shutdown Oakland is tough. The A’s will start Cole Irvin, who has been fantastic recently. Over his past four starts, Irvin has given up only four total runs. The Rays rank just 23rd in team OPS, so I don’t think their offense is going to do much here.
