MLB Tuesday three-team mega parlay (+1630 odds): Cardinals cruise past Tigers

MLB Tuesday three-team mega parlay (+1630 odds): Cardinals cruise past Tigers

The 2021 MLB season kicked off more than two months ago now, and the action has been jam-packed. Why not go 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 16/1, and we’re counting on the Cardinals to win big.

We just cashed our mega parlay on Monday at +1148 odds, let’s make it two days in a row!

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.

Chicago White Sox -2.5 (+155)

St. Louis Cardinals -1.5 (+130)

San Francisco Giants -1.5 (+195)

Parlay odds: +1630

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

Chicago White Sox -2.5 (+155)

Starting things off with an expected domination from the White Sox. Chicago is coming off a rough series where they got swept, and now is the time to buy-low. The sweep came at the hands of a scorching hot Astros team, so you can’t really hold it against them. Right before that series against Houston, the White Sox were 17-6 in their previous 23.

The Pirates are one of the worst teams in the league, and they’ve lost 11 of their past 13 games. In each of their past five losses, they’ve scored two runs or fewer. As such, I’m not too concerned about laying -2.5. Especially when the Pirates are starting Tyler Anderson, who has a 4.89 ERA through 13 starts. In his last outing he got smacked around for 10 hits and six earned runs. In one of his recent starts, Pittsburgh lost 20-1, showing how low their floor is when he pitches.

St. Louis Cardinals -1.5 (+130)

Sticking with another NL/AL Central interleague clash, we’ve got the Cardinals. St. Louis is facing a Tigers team that is 30-42, and that feels like a significant overachievement given their talent level. Detroit will start Tarik Skubal, who has a 1.45 WHIP. Importantly, Skubal never goes deep into games. He hasn’t made it past six innings in any of his 14 starts, and plenty of them have been quite a bit shorter.

That’s crucial because Detroit’s bullpen has an ERA of 5.19, the fourth-worst mark in the league. As such, expect the Cardinals to have a field day once Skubal leaves the game. The Cardinals have been up and down, but they’ve been getting great pitching lately. In six of their last eight games, they’ve allowed two runs or fewer. They’ll start Johan Oviedo here, and the young Cuban tossed seven scoreless innings in his last outing.

San Francisco Giants -1.5 (+195)

To wrap this mega parlay up and hopefully bring us home, we’ve got the Giants. San Francisco has been getting it done all season, but they still get no respect from oddsmakers. Everyone still continues to treat them like a fluke, which isn’t fair at all. 46-26 isn’t exactly a small sample size. They’ve won six of their past seven and scored at least nine runs in four of those six victories. That kind of offensive upside is what we’re looking for when backing a team on the run line.

The Angels just took three of four from the Tigers, but right before that got swept by the A’s. Their only wins since June 1st have come against the Mariners, Royals, Diamondbacks, and Tigers. Some of the weakest teams in the league. The Giants will start Anthony Desclafini here, who has been fantastic with a 3.01 ERA. That number is misleading since he had one really terrible start where he gave up 10 runs. Outside of that, he’s been lights out, and he just threw a complete game shutout two starts ago.
