We have a 13-team slate in Major League Baseball on Wednesday. A handful of teams are off to go begin new series elsewhere, while it’s getaway day for a whole host of others. That means six businessman’s specials are on the afternoon docket, while the seven other contests will be played at night. Wednesday’s action is capped off by the headliner, another showdown between the Los Angeles Dodgers and San Diego Padres on ESPN. Make sure you check out our picks on the side and total for all of today’s mega matchups.

Let’s take a look at our three-team mega parlay for Wednesday.

Boston Red Sox ML (+120)

Toronto Blue Jays -1.5 (+142)

Los Angeles Dodgers ML (-115)

Parlay odds: +890

For this parlay we are going with one underdog on the money line, one favorite on the money line, and one favorite on the run line. Here is a breakdown of the three legs one by one.

Boston Red Sox ML over Tampa Bay Rays (+120)

Neither starter — Garrett Richards of Boston and Rich Hill of Tampa Bay — is in spectacular form at the moment. Hill was previously on an amazing stretch of eight starts with an ERA of 0.99, but that ended on June 5 and since then he has struggled. Giving up home runs has especially been a problem. The Red Sox boast a superior lineup, so you should have more confidence in Richards than in Hill. Top prospect Wander Franco is finally up with the Rays and he hit his first home run on Tuesday, but that won’t immediately save them from their offensive woes.

Toronto Blue Jays -1.5 over Miami Marlins (+142)

Toronto is in a stretch of their schedule in which it plays nine straight games against losing teams. Now is the time where the Blue Jays need to get on a run and rise up the standings. The offense is averaging just over five runs per game and is one of the best combining both power and contact skills. Miami has struggled mainly because its offense is poor. The Marlins managed only one run in Tuesday’s 2-1 loss. They are sending Trevor Rogers to the mound on Wednesday and he has been great in 2021, but the Jays generally hit left-handers hard. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. and company should be able to power Toronto to some more success.

Los Angeles Dodgers over San Diego Padres (-115)

After losing back-to-back starts in which the Dodgers were outscored by a total of 16-3, right-hander Trevor Bauer was able to get back on track with 7.0 shutout innings in his last outing against the Diamondbacks. He allowed just three hits and struck out eight, and it was just the start he needed to gain some confidence back. Bauer holds a strong 2.45 ERA on the season and opponents are hitting a measly .170 against him. The Padres’ offense has been a bit cold over the last few weeks and Bauer put together back-to-back quality starts against them back in April.

As for San Diego starter Joe Musgrove, in four career starts against Los Angeles, he is 0-3 with a 5.03 ERA and 1.48 WHIP. He faced the Dodgers back on April 25 and made it through just 3.0 innings. Meanwhile, Max Muncy returned to L.A.’s lineup on Tuesday and Cody Bellinger is slated to come back on Wednesday.
