MLB Wednesday three-team mega parlay (+1212 odds): Dodgers keep rolling
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 12/1, and we’re counting on the Dodgers to win big over the Rockies.
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. Let’s make it two Wednesday’s in a row! 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.
St. Louis Cardinals -1.5 (+160)
Los Angeles Dodgers -1.5 (-145)
Seattle Mariners -1.5 (+190)
Let’s break down each of the legs one by one.
St. Louis Cardinals -1.5 (+160) over Milwaukee Brewers
The Cardinals are officially on fire as the final days of the season approach. St. Louis has won 10 straight games to surge ahead in the NL wild-card race. They’ve won each of the first two games of this series over the Brewers, and Milwaukee doesn’t really care much about these contests as they’ve long wrapped up the division.
St. Louis will also get to face Brett Anderson, one of the weak links of Milwaukee’s strong pitching staff. Anderson hasn’t even pitched since leaving his September 1st start after just two innings with a shoulder injury. He should be at least a little rusty here. Anderson was already mediocre prior to going down, with a 4.18 ERA for the year. In his last three full starts, he gave up 12 earned runs in only 12 and 2/3 innings.

Los Angeles Dodgers -1.5 (-145) over Colorado Rockies
The Dodgers need this game like blood as they’re locked in an extremely tight battle with the Giants for first place in the NL West. They’ve responded well to the heightened pressure so far, winning nine of their past 10 games. Los Angeles has scored at least five runs in eight of those nine wins, and we all know what this offense is capable of. They might not even need too much offense to cover this with Walker Beuhler on the mound.
Buehler is a Cy Young contender, entering with a 2.36 ERA and 0.96 WHIP. He’s started twice at Coors Field this season and has pitched very well both times, so I’m not worried about him struggling with the altitude and unique ballpark. Rockies starter German Marquez has pitched against the Dodgers once this year, and he gave up 12 baserunners in only four innings.

Seattle Mariners -1.5 (+190) over Oakland Athletics
To wrap this parlay up and hopefully bring us home, we’ve got the Mariners. Seattle is a substantial underdog in this game, but I’m not sure why. They’ve won each of the first two games of this series, and Oakland has been a below .500 team the past couple of months. A’s starter Cole Irvin has a 5.87 ERA in September, and it was 4.91 in August. Irvin has made three starts against the Mariners this season, and he’s struggled in all three of them.
His ERA in those games is 8.49, and he’s allowed a ridiculous 26 baserunners in only 11 and 2/3 innings. The Mariners have won five of the last six times that Chris Flexen has taken the hill, and in his last start against Oakland about a month ago he only gave up one run in 6 and 2/3 innings.
