The 2021 MLB season kicked off almost a month ago now, and the action has been jam-packed. Why not celebrate the fresh week by going for a big payday on Tuesday? That’s right, we’re back with another MLB mega parlay, this time a three-teamer with a payout north of 15/1, where we’re counting on the Diamondbacks to keep up their recent success.

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.

Boston Red Sox -1.5 (+182)

Chicago Cubs ML (+145)

Arizona Diamondbacks ML (+145)

Parlay odds: +1593

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

Boston Red Sox -1.5 (+182)

Continue to underestimate the Red Sox at your own peril. Their offense has been excellent, and I’m not sure they should be underdogs here. Mets starter David Peterson has only 12 career starts under his belt, and he has a 6.75 ERA through three in 2021. Last time out, he didn’t make it out of the fourth inning. Boston’s Garrett Richards got rocked in his first start but has been a lot better ever since, and I’m not too worried about him given his track record. The Red Sox are also 6-1 on the road this season, while the Mets are just 2-4 in their last six overall. Boston also has the seventh-lowest bullpen ERA this season, and it’s a full run lower than the Mets’.

Chicago Cubs ML (+145)

Getting the Cubs at +145 on the money line feels like a steal. Their lineup got off to a horrendous start, but that was clearly never going to last. Over their past six games, they’re averaging 7.5 runs per game. The Braves won the first game of this series by one run, but they also recorded just one hit across 14 innings in their previous two games against the Diamondbacks. Marcell Ozuna and Freddie Freeman are both hitting .208 or lower, and until that turns around there’s no way I can back the Braves.

Atlanta starter Ian Anderson is 22 with 10 big league starts to his name, so I’m not sure why he’s getting so much respect from oddsmakers here. He has a 3.27 ERA through four starts, but his 1.36 WHIP suggests he’s been getting a bit lucky. Even in his best start of the year against the Yankees he walked four batters and gave up eight baserunners, but somehow escaped without surrendering a run. This one feels like a toss-up, so take the value with the underdog.

Arizona Diamondbacks ML (+145)

Speaking of teams that are being underestimated, everyone is sleeping on this Diamondbacks team. They’ve won six of their past seven, the only loss coming by just one run on the road against Atlanta. Padres starter Chris Paddack is another pitcher getting lucky, as his 1.39 WHIP indicates his 3.50 ERA won’t last. He had a 4.73 ERA last year and hasn’t pitched deeper than five innings this year. Last time out, he got tagged by the Brewers for five earned runs. San Diego is catching a lot of buzz after their series win over the Dodgers, which has inflated this line. Their offense has still scored three or fewer runs in five of their past nine. The Diamondbacks are better than most people realize, so hop on while there’s still value.
