Best MLB Parlay Picks for Thursday

  • Yankees ML vs. Rays (-240)
  • Padres ML vs. Cubs (-165)
  • Phillies ML vs. Nationals (-190)

A $25 wager would win $159.25 if it hits!

Yankees ML vs. Rays (-240)

This game features one of the biggest pitching mismatches for today. Luis Severino (4-1, 2.80 ERA) will go head-to-head against Jalen Beeks (1-1, 1.38 ERA). With the way the Yankees offense has been playing, I think Mr. Beeks is in for a rough go today. The lefty works primarily out of the bullpen, but the Rays will use him as an opener today. All signs point to fading Tampa Bay in this bullpen game. 

Padres ML vs. Cubs (-165)

This game features another beatable pitching mismatch with Joe Musgrove going up against Matt Swarmer. The former is 7-0 with a 1.50 ERA and is a frontrunner for the NL Cy Young. The latter, meanwhile, has a 4.24 ERA this season and gave up six home runs to the Yankees on Saturday. Not six runs, six home runs! Let that sink is as you make your bet against Chicago. 

Phillies ML vs. Nationals (-190)

Rounding out our trio of pitching mismatches today is Zach Wheeler vs. Patrick Corbin. This game is a bit different as it does not feature a true ace, but rather one guy who needs to get back to Triple-A and work out some kinks. Corbin enters at 3-8 with a 6.65 ERA for the struggling Nationals. Things are only going from bad to worse for the guy as his WHIP nears 1.75 on the year.
