Welcome to Saturday’s baseball edition of The Bet Club. We have a full slate of Major League Baseball games on today 07-08-23, and there are plenty of exciting opportunities for value across the board. After successfully hitting several parlays this week, we aim to continue the streak with a parlay offering a lucrative +684 payout at KasinoBets.com Sportsbook.
Today’s MLB Parlay Picks
In this article, we will present three picks for Saturday’s games and discuss the reasoning behind each selection.
Padres -1.5 (+115) over Mets – MLB Parlay Pick
To kick off the mega parlay, we’re backing the San Diego Padres on the run line. Blake Snell has been quietly dominant this season, with eight consecutive exceptional starts under his belt. Over his last 47 innings, Snell has allowed just four runs while striking out an impressive 73 batters. Facing a struggling Mets lineup that ranks average or below-average in key statistical categories, Snell should find continued success. Additionally, the Padres have the advantage with David Peterson on the mound for the Mets, as he holds a 6.61 ERA and subpar advanced metrics. We anticipate a convincing win for San Diego in this matchup.
Mariners vs Astros Under 7.5 (-110) – MLB Parlay Picks
The second leg of our parlay focuses on the under in the AL West clash between the Seattle Mariners and Houston Astros. Despite the Mariners’ overall underachievement this season, their pitching staff has been a bright spot. Bryan Woo has particularly impressed, boasting a top-tier strikeout rate, expected batting average (xBA), and expected weighted on-base average (xwOBA) among all starters. With an xERA of 2.72, Woo has been unlucky and should experience positive regression. On the Astros’ side, Framber Valdez has been equally effective with a 2.49 ERA. Both teams have struggled offensively, ranking in the lower half of the league in key offensive categories. Anticipate a low-scoring affair in this contest.
Cubs vs Yankees Under 8 (-110) – MLB Parlay Picks
The final selection for our mega parlay is the under in the matchup between the Chicago Cubs and New York Yankees. Despite the hitter-friendly environment at Yankee Stadium, the Yankees’ offense has struggled without Aaron Judge. Facing Cubs starter Drew Smyly, who excels at limiting hard contact, the Yankees’ lineup may face challenges. Smyly’s strong metrics in average exit velocity and hard-hit percentage make him a formidable opponent. Meanwhile, Gerrit Cole is expected to continue his excellent season for the Yankees against a Cubs lineup that has been lackluster in slugging percentage (SLG) and on-base plus slugging percentage (OPS). With both teams struggling offensively, we’re confident in the under hitting in this game.
Today’s MLB mega parlay offers an exciting opportunity for a substantial payout. By selecting the San Diego Padres on the run line, expecting a low-scoring game between the Seattle Mariners and Houston Astros, and anticipating a pitching duel in the Cubs vs. Yankees matchup, we aim to secure another parlay victory.
