MLB Wednesday three-team mega parlay (+1488 odds): Giants keep rolling

The 2021 MLB season kicked off over a month and a half ago now, and the action has been jam-packed. Why not make the action even more exciting 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 just shy of 15/1, where we’re counting on the Giants to make it four straight wins.

We just cashed our MLB mega parlay last Wednesday at +1618 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 to start the season.

Boston Red Sox -1.5 (+165)

San Francisco Giants -1.5 (+135)

Houston Astros -1.5 (+155)

Parlay odds: +1488

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

Boston Red Sox -1.5 (+165)

The Red Sox lost big on Tuesday, and now is the time to buy-low. We had the Blue Jays run line in yesterday’s mega parlay, but that was only because Hyun-jin Ryu was on the mound. Ryu is one of the best pitchers in the league, so you can’t blame Boston too much for struggling. Sure the Red Sox have lost two in a row, but right before that, they’d won three in a row by a combined score of 21-4.

They’ve got a big edge on the hill Wednesday with Garrett Richards squaring off against Ross Stripling. Stripling declined sharply last season, and he’s been just as awful in 2021. Through five starts, he has a 5.91 ERA and 1.69 WHIP. He’s yet to pitch deeper than five innings in a game. Richards is still a very solid starter when healthy, and he just threw six scoreless innings against Oakland his last time out.

San Francisco Giants -1.5 (+135)

The Giants won by multiple runs in each of the first two games of this series, and they should do it again here. San Francisco has been one of the league’s most pleasant surprises this year, and the pitching matchup isn’t even close in this one. Even after throwing a no-hitter two starts ago, Wade Miley still has an ERA nearly two full runs higher than Giants starter Kevin Gausman. Pitchers often regress after pitching no-hitters, as we saw with Joe Musgrove recently.

Miley was no exception, as he got rocked for eight runs by the Rockies last time out. Miley has been thoroughly mediocre the past half decade, so I was never buying his hot start. Gausman has been consistently excellent, with a 1.84 ERA and 0.84 WHIP. Cincinnati has scored only five total runs through the first couple of games of this set, and I’m not expecting more than a few from them here. We probably only need four from the Giants.

Houston Astros -1.5 (+155)

I was backing Oakland on Tuesday and they won, but now I think Houston makes some sense. Zack Greinke faced the A’s once earlier this season and threw six shutout innings. Current Oakland hitters have a pitiful lifetime OPS of .580 in 135 at bats against Greinke.

Houston has won nine of their last 12 games, and incredibly they’ve scored at least four runs in all 12 of those contests. That kind of consistent offense is exactly what I’m looking for when backing a team on the run line. The A’s will start Frankie Montas, who has a 4.93 ERA through eight starts. He had a 5.60 ERA in 11 starts in 2020, so it appears the promise he showed in 2019 might be gone.
