We have a massive 17-game slate in Major League Baseball on Tuesday—17 instead of 15 because of two double-headers. It is headlined by an ESPN showdown between the Houston Astros and New York Yankees, which is part of our four-team mega parlay. This play also includes the Boston Red Sox and Tampa Bay Rays of the American League East. Let’s take a look.

Yankees ML (-115)

Red Sox -1.5 (+100)

Rays ML (-106)

Mariners ML (-130)

Parlay odds: +1092

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

New York Yankees ML over Houston Astros (-115)

The Yankees are giving the ball to Domingo German on Tuesday. After getting hit hard in his first couple of starts he has looked much better. He gave up two home runs in each of his first two starts but he has given up none in the last two and has allowed just two earned runs in his last 13.0 innings. The Yankees have pitched better than expected all season long and their bullpen has been among the best in the league. You generally don’t get this kind of value on the Yankees, but that is the case here with Zack Greinke starting for the Astros. There is no reason why the Bronx Bombers can’t rough him up for enough runs to win.

Boston Red Sox -1.5 over Detroit Tigers (+100)

The Tigers entered this series with one of the worst, if not the worst, offenses in the league. They have been shut out in three of their last four games, have the worst team batting average in the league, and the worst team batting average on the road. They are a ridiculous 1-10 in their last 11 games and are averaging just 1.55 runs during this stretch. The top four hitters in the Tigers lineup have just a .195 combined batting average and there are not many positives to their offense. The Red Sox, on the other hand, boast four regulars batting above .300 this season—including JD Martinez and Xander Bogaerts, who are hitting .347 and .349 respectively. On the mound for them will be Nick Pivetta, who has allowed no more than two runs in four of his five starts.

Tampa Bay Rays ML over Los Angeles Angels (-106)

Rays starter Shane McClanahan opened plenty of eyes in his Major League Baseball debut last week. While McClanahan went just 4.0 innings and threw only 59 pitches, he brought some nasty stuff with him and figures to be a key piece of Tampa Bay’s pitching staff for the rest of the season. McClanahan’s fastball can hit 100 miles per hour, and you might think that someone who throws that way would struggle with control—but he didn’t walk a single batter in his first outing against the Athletics. Hard-throwing left-handed starters with good control are a rarity in baseball, and none of the Angels have faced McClanahan yet. Anaheim will send veteran Alex Cobb to the mound. Cobb has been lit up in his past two starts, not making it through 3.0 innings in either one.

Seattle Mariners ML over Baltimore Orioles (-130)

The Orioles have a strong 10-5 record on the road this season, but that will be put to the test against the Mariners because Baltimore is just 4-13 in their last 17 games in Seattle. Jorge Lopez takes the mound for Baltimore, and he has really struggled this season. Lopez currently has a 7.48 ERA through five starts, and he has made it through 5.0 innings only once. Baltimore has been outscored 29-19 in his five starts. Justin Dunn is scheduled to start for Seattle, and although he has not put up eye-popping stats throughout this career the Mariners tend to win games when he pitches. Last season they were 7-3 in games started by Dunn, and this season they are 3-1.
