We’ve got a full 15 games to bet on in Major League Baseball on Sunday, June 19, so what’s the harm in parlaying a few picks together for a potentially huge payout?

While parlays aren’t the best way to become a profitable sports bettor, they can be extremely fun to root for, especially with so much afternoon action in MLB. Usually our guy Joe Summers crushes these MLB parlays, so I’m going to hope to get a little of his mojo going in this one. 

I mean, who wouldn’t be interested in a little Father’s Day Parlay? 

Let’s not kid ourselves. Here are four picks at WynnBET I’d be looking to parlay on Sunday: 

Best MLB Parlay Picks Today (+895 Odds)

  • New York Yankees Moneyline vs. Toronto Blue Jays (-152)
  • Atlanta Braves-Chicago Cubs OVER 9 (-110)
  • Milwaukee Brewers Moneyline vs. Cincinnati Reds (-145)
  • Miami Marlins-New York Mets First 5 Innings UNDER 3.5 (-125)

New York Yankees vs. Toronto Blue Jays: Yankees Moneyline (-152)

I won’t fade the New York Yankees with how they are playing right now. New York has won nine straight games and continues to find ways to pull out wins even on nights that the offense isn’t clicking. 

Now, the Yankees have a significant pitching advantage with Luis Severino (4-1, 2.80 ERA) facing Yusei Kikuchi (2-3, 4.80 ERA). 

The Yanks have beaten Kikuchi twice already this season and are 13-11 on the run line as road favorites in 2022. I’ll just bet them to win in this parlay, as they’ve gone 16-8 straight up as road favorites. 

Atlanta Braves vs. Chicago Cubs: OVER 9 (-110)

The Atlanta Braves are the hottest team in the National League, and they’ve done it with an elite offensive attack, ranking first in homers, OPS and fifth in runs scored over the last 15 days. 

Now, they face a home-run prone pitcher in Kyle Hendricks, who has allowed 11 bombs already this season. The Cubs are a solid OVER team this season (32-30-3) and the Braves are even better at 36-27-3. 

I don’t really trust either pitching staff, especially Chicago, who ranks 26th in team ERA this season. I like that this can push at nine runs as well. 

Milwaukee Brewers vs. Cincinnati Reds: Brewers Moneyline (-145)

This is a less-than-inspiring pitching matchup between Adrian Houser and Mike Minor, but you will not catch me backing Minor, who has been downright awful this season. 

Minor is 1-2 with a 7.36 ERA through his first three starts, and he’s allowed at least three runs in every start. The Brewers have rebounded after a rough patch to win back-to-back games, and I think they can complete the sweep here. 

Houser’s FIP (Fielding Independent Pitching) of 4.03 is slightly better than his ERA, and I think he’s due for a bounce-back start after two tough matchups against elite offenses like the Philadelphia Phillies and New York Mets. 

Cincy is just 21st in baseball in OPS this year. I think the Brewers give Houser enough run support to grab the victory today. 

Miami Marlins vs. New York Mets: First 5 Innings UNDER 3.5 (-125)

We have a fantastic pitching matchup in New York on Sunday, as Sandy Alcantara (6-2, 1.68 ERA) takes on Chris Bassitt (5-4, 4.01 ERA). 

I really trust Alcantara to carry this prop, as he’s gone eight straight starts with two or fewer earned runs. The Marlins have been solid against right-handed pitching this season, but Bassitt is coming off his best start of the season, tossing eight shutout innings against the Brewers. 

I’ll trust these two starters to keep this low scoring early.
