The Divisional Series is set to begin today across both the American and National League. With four different games to bet on, why not toss together a fun little parlay?

Remember, parlays are tough to hit, so consider betting less on this than you would a normal bet. With that being said, they're a ton of fun. So here is my favorite parlay for today's action.

Best MLB Parlay Bets Today

Phillies/Braves OVER 7 (-124)

If there's one thing I know for certain, it's that both of these offenses are hot. The Braves rank third in OPS dating back to Sept. 1, and the Phillies rank seventh. Not only that, but Max Fried, the Braves ace, has struggled at times against Philadelphia this season. He has a 3.13 ERA against them, which is significantly worse than his season-long ERA of 2.48.

Let's sit back and root for runs in the first game of the day, and get this parlay started off with a win.

Logan Gilbert OVER 3.5 Strikeouts (-138)

For the second game on today's slate between the Seattle Mariners and Houston Astros, I'm looking at Logan Gilbert's OVER 3.5 strikeouts. Gilbert has surpassed this total in five of his last six games, and he's surpassed this number in three of his four starts against the Astros this season.

He's also been averaging 10.3 strikeouts per nine innings since the start of September, an increase over his earlier season numbers.

Guardians +1.5 (-125) vs. Yankees

I have little faith in the Yankees being able to win this game, let alone win this game by multiple runs. You shouldn't see Gerrit Cole's name and automatically bet on the Yankees. In fact, Cal Quantrill has been better in recent weeks than Cole has been. Cole has a 4.50 ERA since Sept. 1, and Quantrill has an ERA of 2.89 ERA in that time frame.

The Guardians pitching should be able to keep this game close at the very least.

Dodgers -235 vs. Padres

If we make it through the first three legs of this parlay, then let's just make the final leg an easy one. We're going to take the Dodgers to win outright, that's it. Los Angeles is 14-5 against the Padres this season, and now San Diego has to put out Mike Clevinger, who has a 9.69 ERA against the Dodgers this season.

Let's close this parlay out with an easy win.
