With the weekend action set to start this Friday, it’s time to look ahead and plan out our MLB parlay picks the next few days. I always love to play a parlay or two over the weekend, and usually go with 3 teams on each day. Although, you can take any of these picks and combine them the way you want. Just keep in mind that the MLB run lines and game totals for some of these matchups won’t be up until game day.
Winning MLB Parlay Picks for the Weekend Action (Jul 29-30)We will also have some straight up single picks for you guys in another post, but for now we are going to focus on giving our bankrolls a boost with some parlay plays. As always, you can play these as a single parlay, or you can go with more of a round robin style of wagering.

MLB Parlay Pick for Friday, July 28The Atlanta Braves are not on a particularly good run of form right now, and have had little success against the Phillies this season, going just 2-5 in their last 7 meetings. That said, they will have Julio Teheran on the mound on Friday night. Teheran has lost his last two starts, but did not pitch poorly, and had won 3 in a row prior to that run. I like the Braves to get the win on the road.
One of the better match-ups of the night sees the red-hot Kansas City Royals head into Boston to face the Red Sox. If I had to pick a straight up winner here, I think my money would be on the Royals. But that is not the play I am going with. Instead, I am playing the UNDER, as we have two very good pitchers in David Price and Jason Vargas going head to head. It may come as a surprise to some of you to learn that the LA Dodgers are just 4-6 against the Giants this season. Especially when you consider how far apart these two teams are right now. The Dodgers are rolling at the moment, having won 5-straight. They also have the benefit of having Alex Wood starting on Friday night. Wood has been nothing short of brilliant this season, and I like him to get the win here.
MLB Parlay Pick for Saturday, July 29The New York Mets may not be having a particularly good season, but the same cannot be said for Pitcher Jacob DeGrom. He has been lights out for the Mets and has won each of his last 8 starts. Perhaps even more impressive is the fact that he has only surrendered 11 earned runs during that stretch. I like the Mets to get the win over the Mariners on Saturday. The Cleveland Indians appear to be putting things together at just the right time, heading into the weekend on a 7-game winning streak. Corey Kluber is 8-3 as a starter this season and is also sporting a very respectable 2.74 ERA. He dominated the Chicago White Sox the last time he started against them. I believe we can expect more of the same this weekend. This could well be a series that Cleveland sweeps, but I think the best bet is on Saturday. The Diamondbacks are finding their way back after a bit of a rough patch, and come into the weekend on a modest 2-game winning streak. They have a tough road trip to St. Louis this weekend, but I like their chances of winning with Zack Greinke on the mound. He already has 12 wins on the season, and tends to get good run support when he starts.
MLB Parlay Pick for Sunday, July 30The trade rumors swirling around Justin Verlander appear to be taking a toll on the pitcher. He has now gone 5 straight games without picking up a win and Sunday may prove to be his final game for Detroit. Now, this will be a tough one against the high-flying Astros. I think Verlander will fail to get the W again, as Houston cruises to victory.
One of the best series of the weekend sees the Cubs vs. the Brewers, with both teams battling for division supremacy. The Sunday tilt is one where I think the pitching match-up favors the Brewers. Zach Davies has not surrendered an ER in his last two starts. John Lackey has won 3-straight for the Cubs, but he has often been forced to pitch out of trouble. Look for a win for the Brewers here. Reds and Blue Jays are both having less than stellar seasons, but it is the Jays who look like the better ball club of the two. Sunday sees Jesse Chavez head to the mound, which is bad news for the Reds. So far they have failed to win in each of his last 5 starts. For Toronto, Cesar Valdez is coming off a gem in his last outing, and I like him to get the W again.
