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 trade deadline is in the rearview mirror, and we now know more or less where things stand. Why not celebrate by going for a big payday on Thursday? That’s right, we’re back with another MLB mega parlay, this time a three-teamer with a payout north of 11/1, and we’re counting on the Nationals to bounce back.

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’ve been on fire with these 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, let’s do it again on Thursday! That’s two out of the past five mega parlays I’ve written cashing at 12/1 or better.

Colorado Rockies -1.5 (+115)

Washington Nationals ML (+145)

Atlanta Braves -1.5 (+135)

Parlay odds: +1138

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

Colorado Rockies -1.5 over Chicago Cubs (+115)

We had the Rockies -1.5 over the Cubs to help cash this mega parlay on Tuesday, why not go right back to the well? Everyone can continue to underestimate this Rockies team if they’d like, but this isn’t some fluke. They’ve been playing pretty well for almost two months now, so it’s not a tiny sample size. Sure they got off to a disastrous start, but since all the way back on June 13th they’ve been above .500.

The Cubs have been completely demoralized by the trades of Anthony Rizzo, Kris Bryant, and Javy Baez, and understandably so. This offense has very little juice left, so don’t expect them to touch German Marquez, who is having a fantastic season. Marquez has a 3.51 ERA through 22 starts, which is really impressive when you consider his home park is Coors Field.

Washington Nationals ML over Philadelphia Phillies (+145)

The Nationals have a much better chance to win this game than oddsmakers are giving them credit for. Sure they’ve lost the first three games of this series but they’ve actually been hitting pretty well, scoring at least four runs in every game. Washington has been much better at home this year while Philly has been much worse on the road, so I don’t see why the Nationals are this big of an underdog.

Joe Ross has a lower ERA this year than Aaron Nola does. Nola’s home/road splits are just as stark as his team’s are. His ERA at home this year is only 3.18, but it balloons out to 5.29 on the road. In nine of his 12 road starts this season, he’s given up at least three earned runs. Ross just started against the Phillies a couple weeks ago, and he gave up zero runs and only three hits in five innings. Take the Nationals.

Atlanta Braves -1.5 over St. Louis Cardinals (+135)

The Braves were also part of this winning parlay on Tuesday, so who better to bring us home in the nightcap of the slate. Atlanta has won big in each of the first two games of this series, and I don’t see why they won’t do it again on Thursday. A lot of people wrote the Braves off after the Ronald Acuna Jr injury, but the offense has been resilient and they chose not to throw in the towel at the trade deadline.

They’ve scored at least five runs in five of their past six games, and have the third-highest batting average in the league over the past 15 days. The Cardinals will start Wade LeBlanc, a 36-year-old journeyman who had an 8.06 ERA last year and a 5.71 ERA in his last full season in 2019. Braves starter Touki Toussaint has been amazing in two of his three big league outings this year.
