MLB Parlay Betting Picks This Weekend
Basketball and hockey season is now officially over, but that doesn’t mean that there isn’t anything left to bet on. Soccer fans have the Copa America, the Women’s World Cup, and MLS to choose from, while fans in North America have a full slate of baseball games on a daily basis. As always, there is a ton of MLB betting action to look forward to this weekend. You can choose to wager on individual games that catch your eye, but I like to play a parlay when I bet on baseball. It’s usually a 3-team parlay I go with, but you can choose more teams, or just pick 2 that you like. With that said, let’s look at my 3-team parlay selections for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
Closer Look at the MLB Parlay Betting Picks This Weekend

While I like to get some nice odds going with my parlays, I usually try to find one game of the three that I consider to be a “lock.” On Friday, that game has to be the Cardinals and Phillies. These are two teams heading in opposite directions, and it should be an easy win for Philly. I like the Oakland A’s to win over the Angels, as they have tagged Friday starter Matt Shoemaker with 11 earned runs in the 3 games they have faced him this season. The Kansas City Royals appear to be back on track, going 7-3 in their last 10, and they should be able to handle a struggling Red Sox team on Friday.
Parlay Pick: Cardinals, A’s, Royals
The Toronto Blue Jays have been going well of late, and are 6-3 on the season versus the Orioles. I like them to add another one to the win column on Saturday. The Mets have struggled on the road this season, but do have a decent record versus the Braves to this point. I think they can get the win at Turner Field this weekend. The Tampa Bay Rays have been great on the road this season, while the Reds have struggled at home, which is exactly what I look for when choosing my picks. Taking the Rays to win.
Parlay Pick: Blue Jays, Mets, Rays
Masahiro Tanaka has been solid for the Yankees all season, and was lights out the last time he faced Detroit. I think he might just shut them down again. Charlie Morton has won all 5 games he has pitched for the Pirates this season. Look for him to make it 6 versus the Nationals. The Padres and Diamondbacks are headed in opposite directions in the division. I like the D’Backs to continue rising at the expense of San Diego
Parlay Pick: Yankees, Pirates, Diamondbacks
