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 season is officially in full swing and we have another great slate on Tuesday with a bunch of interesting matchups. And what better way to celebrate than by going for a big payday? That’s right, we’re back with another mega parlay.

We’re going big and bold again, so let’s not waste any more time. But before we dive in, don’t forget to check out our free picks on the side and total for every MLB game today.

Minnesota Twins -1.5 (+164)

Houston Astros -1.5 (+146)

Cleveland Guardians ML (+136)

Parlay odds: +1432

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

Minnesota Twins -1.5 (+164) over Detroit Tigers

To start this mega parlay off we’ve got the Twins on the run line. Minnesota started the season off slowly, but after rattling off four straight wins they now find themselves in first place in the AL Central. They just swept the White Sox, and have only allowed nine total runs across their last five games. Detroit had one recent 13-run explosion against the Rockies, but other than that their offense has been extremely quiet.

Outside of that game against Colorado, the Tigers haven’t scored more than three runs in a contest since April 13. The Tigers will start Eduardo Rodriguez, who has struggled a bit in his first three starts with his new team. The southpaw has an ERA of 5.27. Austin Meadows, acquired in a trade this offseason, has been quite solid but nobody else in the lineup has an OPS above .750. Back the Twins to make it five in a row here.

Houston Astros -1.5 (+146) over Texas Rangers

The Astros haven’t had the start they were hoping for, but they still make a lot of sense as our next parlay leg. Houston hasn’t gotten off on the right foot, but neither has Texas. Even after spending big to land Corey Seager this offseason, the Rangers have started just 6-10. They’ll start Taylor Hearn here, who has been just as shaky as he was last season. The 27-year-old lefty saw the first extended MLB action of his career last year, and he walked a ton of batters en route to a 4.66 ERA.

This time around he has once again struggled with his control, leading to a 2.25 WHIP through three starts. In his last game he got roughed up by the Mariners, allowing nine baserunners and five earned runs in only three innings. In his first start he gave up eight hits in four innings, and in his second start he gave up six hits and three earned runs in 3 and 2/3 innings. All things considered, the Astros should be able to secure a comfortable win.

Cleveland Guardians ML (+136) over Los Angeles Angels

To wrap this mega parlay up and hopefully bring us home, we’ve got the Guardians on the money line. Cleveland has had a tough past few games, but right before that, they were hot with wins in seven of 10 and a scorching hot offense. And perhaps most importantly, they’ll have Triston McKenzie on the mound here. The promising youngster showed plenty of flashes last season in his first year in the rotation, and it looks like he’s ready to make the leap in 2022.

Through 11 and 1/3 innings this season, McKenzie has allowed only six hits and three runs. The Guardians shouldn’t be this large of an underdog with him starting against Patrick Sandoval for the Angels. Sandoval has also had control issues throughout his career, and his 1.50 WHIP shows he’s lucky to have not given up an earned run through eight innings this season. Los Angeles also has the sixth-highest bullpen ERA in the league.
