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 2021 MLB season kicked off about three months ago, and the action has been jam-packed. Why not celebrate the middle of a new week by going for a big payday on Wednesday? That’s right; we’re back with another MLB mega parlay, this time a three-teamer with a payout north of 12/1, and we’re counting on the Reds to win big.

I just cashed this MLB mega parlay last Wednesday at 12/1 odds; let’s do it again this Wednesday!

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.

Texas Rangers -1.5 (+140)

Cincinnati Reds -1.5 (+100)

San Francisco Giants -2.5 (+185)

Parlay odds: +1268

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

Texas Rangers -1.5 (+140)

The Rangers picked up a 10-5 win over the Tigers on Tuesday, and should get another lopsided victory here. Texas’ offense is quietly starting to pick up, and they have a huge edge on the mound here. Kyle Gibson will start for the Rangers opposite Casey Mize for the Tigers. Gibson has been one of the league’s best starters this season, entering with a 1.98 ERA and 1.03 WHIP.

He’s given up more than two earned runs in a start only once since April 1st, and that was all the way back on May 4th. Over his past seven outings, he’s given up only seven total runs. At home this season his ERA is a minuscule 1.09. I don’t see how this Detroit lineup is supposed to get to him. With Gibson pitching, we’ll probably only need a few runs from the Rangers to cash this.

Cincinnati Reds -1.5 (+100)

The Reds lost 7-6 on Tuesday, but right before that they’d won five straight. Even after picking up that one-run victory, the Royals are still just 3-11 in their last 14 games. Royals starter Brady Singer has regressed in his second season in the big leagues. His ERA is an unimpressive 4.74, but his whopping 1.52 WHIP shows he’s lucky even to have that.

He’s failed to make it out of the fourth inning in three of his past four starts, so we should see a lot of this highly mediocre Kansas City bullpen. The Reds will turn to Sonny Gray, and he’s been pretty great after a rough April. He’s given up only four total earned runs in his last four starts. The Reds should roll here.

San Francisco Giants -2.5 (+185)

To wrap this mega parlay up and hopefully bring us home, we’ve got the Giants on the alt run line -2.5. San Francisco is first in the league in home runs and third in run differential, so they’re the type of team to back on this kind of line. The Cardinals on the other hand are 26th in MLB in runs scored, so they’re the kind of team you want to fade on this line.

St. Louis will also start Johan Oviedo here, and the young Cuban has had a really tough start to his career. In 15 major league starts between last year and this year, his ERA is 5.25. This season he has a 1.55 WHIP, and the Cards are just 3-8 in games that he’s pitched in. After a shaky first half of June, Giants starter Alex Wood has been really solid his last couple of times out. San Francisco also has one of the best bullpens in the league.
