Since graduating from Davidson (The College That Stephen Curry Built), I have been writing about sports--just about any and all you can think of!--and coaching tennis in Atlanta, Ga. Beyond the four major sports, I am an avid tennis fan and cover the ATP Tour on a daily basis. If I'm not busy writing, you can generally find me on a tennis court or traveling the world wherever a sporting event takes me.

We are continuing the week in Major League Baseball with a 12-game slate on Thursday. A handful of teams are traveling in between series, but most clubs are in action. The schedule includes an afternoon showdown between the White Sox and Blue Jays on ESPN+ before the Cardinals and Cubs renew their rivalry with the beginning of a four-game series.

Here is our three-team mega parlay:

Nationals ML (+110)

Cardinals -1.5 (+150)

Braves -1.5 (+100)

Parlay odds: +950

For this parlay we are going with one underdog on the money line and two favorites on the run line. Let’s break down each of the three legs one by one.

Read our picks on the side and total for each of today’s 12 MLB games

Washington Nationals ML over Cincinnati Reds (+110)

The Nationals did not have a great time against the Mets earlier this week, which was expected. New York has been one of the best teams throughout the season, and Washington should welcome the series change. Meanwhile, the Reds just had to take on some of the best hitters in the league in Boston and will now have to deal with a few more of them. This may not be the prettiest baseball you watch on Thursday, but someone has to win. It will likely be the Nats. Washington’s Joan Adon is usually a target to pick on, but this may be a situation for him to get his 2nd win of the year. He showed that he has been improving, even if mildly, in his last start. He took on the Rockies, one of the top lineups in baseball, and didn’t allow a single earned run in 6.0 innings.

St. Louis Cardinals -1.5 over Chicago Cubs (+150)

The Cubs have lost five of their last seven games and have struggled to maintain a healthy lineup, as Seiya Suzuki was just placed on the injured list. Meanwhile, for the Cardinals, Paul Goldschmidt is the hottest hitter in baseball right now. The first baseman has a .441 average in his last 15 games and has been the life of the Cards’ offense the last few weeks. St. Louis has won five of its last six. Matthew Liberatore will be on the mound and he is the No. 3 prospect in the organization. In his most recent outing, he pitched 5.0 innings of scoreless baseball while allowing just two hits to Milwaukee.

Atlanta Braves -1.5 over Colorado Rockies (+100)

The Braves are by no means in good form but they were able to end their series at Arizona on a high note on Wednesday. That should roll over into the start of this one. Atlanta looks set to do so for several reasons, namely the fact that the Rockies just had a doubleheader on Wednesday in which a total of 40 runs were scored. Fatigue could be a factor. Moreover, Austin Gomber is coming off a start in which he surrendered eight runs in 1.1 innings of work. Ian Anderson of the Braves should have a big edge in this pitching matchup.
