I'm an NFL handicapper 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. For Andrew Ortenberg media enquiries, please email

We are approaching the home stretch of the 2021 MLB season and we now know more or less where things stand. We don’t have many days of regular-season baseball left, so why not try to go for a big payday? That’s right; we’re back with another MLB mega parlay, this time a 3-teamer with a payout north of 14/1, and we’re counting on the Blue Jays to win big over the Rays.

We’re absolutely on fire with these mega parlays. My colleague John Hyslop just cashed the mega parlay last Monday at 11/1 odds, and then I did it last Wednesday at 13/1. Then, Ricky Dimon did it again on Saturday at 12/1. 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.

Detroit Tigers ML (+145)

Miami Marlins -1.5 (+150)

Toronto Blue Jays -1.5 (+160)

Parlay odds: +1493

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

Detroit Tigers ML (+145) over Chicago White Sox

Underestimate the Tigers at your own peril. A lot of teams that aren’t making the playoffs throw in the towel down the stretch, but not Detroit. They’ve won 6 of their last 8 games, including the opener of this series. The Tigers got off to a really bad start, but they’re 10 games above .500 since May 7. This is by no means a bottom-feeding team, yet they’re being priced like one.

Chicago, on the other hand, is below .500 over the past month — they’re nothing to be afraid of. Especially with Dallas Keuchel on the mound. Keuchel has been a disaster this season, entering with a 5.23 ERA. In 4 of his past 5 starts, he’s given up at least 5 earned runs. Tigers starter Tyler Alexander has actually been really solid lately. His ERA is 3.07 in September and it was 3.38 in August. Take the home underdog to start this parlay.

Miami Marlins -1.5 (+150) over Washington Nationals

The Marlins on the run line? I know, I know, but hear me out. Miami beat Washington while scoring 8 runs on Monday, and they scored 6 runs on Sunday. They’ve got the offensive upside to cover a -1.5, especially when Trevor Roger is pitching. The young lefty has been a revelation for the Marlins this season, entering with a 2.71 ERA.

Washington is one of those teams I referred to above that throws in the towel down the stretch. They stopped showing any signs of life weeks ago. In their last 45 games, the Nationals are a pitiful 12-33. Washington will also start a lefty named Rogers, Josh Rogers. In 11 career big-league appearances and only 6 starts, Josh Rogers has an ERA of 6.23. Advantage Marlins.

Toronto Blue Jays -1.5 (+160) over Tampa Bay Rays

To wrap up this mega parlay and hopefully bring us home, we’ve got the Blue Jays. If there’s one team in MLB we don’t have to worry about having the offensive upside to consistently cover the -1.5, it’s Toronto. The Blue Jays have been arguably the best offense in the league all season, and they’ll have Alek Manoah pitching here. The rookie has been pretty great, as he has a 1.03 WHIP through 17 games. Toronto has won 13 of his 17 starts.

His most recent start came against this same Rays lineup, and he gave up only 1 hit and 0 runs through 8 innings. Drew Rasmussen has been very solid for Tampa, but he’s pitched only 49 innings for them. During his previous major league action with the Brewers, he had an ERA right around 5.
