Best Parlay Picks Today 04 04 2024

he weekend brings a full slate of games on the MLB schedule, which makes Saturday the perfect day to put together some parlays. At WSN, we decided to put together two parlays for your consideration. First, is a two-leg parlay in which we get behind a couple of favored teams we think will win as expected. Second, we took one of the top games on Saturday and created a three-leg same-game parlay. Not to feel overconfident, but we feel good about both. The odds from each parlay come from DraftKings Sportsbook, which is allowing new customers to receive $150 in bonus bets just for signing up and placing a $5 bet.

Best MLB Parlay Bets: Nationals vs Athletics (4:07 PM, EST)

Nationals Moneyline (130) at DraftKings

Admittedly, the Nationals aren’t the best or most reliable team in baseball, but surely they can handle the A’s. For the second straight year, the A’s appear to have a home-field disadvantage, as they’ve been far worse at home than on the road during the early part of the season. Also, Oakland starter Joe Boyle was crushed during his first home start of the season, lasting just 2.2 innings and allowed eight runs (seven earned) on eight hits. He’s not exactly a reliable starter who can give the A's a fighting chance in this game. MacKenzie Gore, on the other hand, has a little more experience and should be able to handle one of the worst lineups in baseball and guide the Nats to a win.

Best MLB Parlay Bets: Cubs vs Mariners (9:40 PM, EST)

Cubs Moneyline (-142) at DraftKings

While Yoshinobu Yamamoto had all of the preseason hype, it’s actually been Chicago’s Shota Imanaga who has been the best Japanese pitcher in the big leagues this season. The crafty lefty has thrown 10 scoreless innings to begin his MLB career, yielding just four hits and no walks. He even kept the Dodgers under wraps in his last start. He figures to do to the same on Saturday to the Mariners, who have been one of the more disappointing offensive teams in baseball thus far. The Cubs, to be fair, have been a little up and down too. But they have the benefit of facing rookie Emerson Hancock, who owns an 11.42 ERA after his first two starts. Even in the game he won, Hancock got into trouble. With Imanaga on the mound for the Cubs, they have a clear path to victory in Saturday’s game.

Best MLB Parlay Bets: Giants vs Rays (4:10 PM, EST)

Logan Webb 6+ Hits Allowed (-185) at DraftKings

Webb has not looked like himself early in the season. To be fair, he’s faced the Padres twice and the Dodgers once in his first three starts. But that’s not an excuse for conceding 22 hits over 16.2 innings, including 10 hits in his last outing. It’s hard to imagine him completely turning things around against a tough - albeit underachieving - Tampa lineup. The bottom line is that Webb has allowed at least seven hits in each of his last two starts, so we’ll bank on him allowing at least six hits against the Rays on Saturday.

Jose Caballero Hit (-190) at DraftKings

Odds are you haven't heard of Caballero, but he’s Tampa’s new shortstop. The 27-year-old spent a little time with the Mariners last year but has hit the ground running in Tampa after an offseason trade to the Rays. He’s reached base in every game this season and has more hits than games played. While he’s never faced Webb, we’re still going to back him to stay hot and collect at least one hit in Saturday’s game.

Michael Conforto Hit (-175) at DraftKings

Conforto has been one of the few reliable members of San Francisco’s lineup early in the season. He seems to have recaptured the form he had with the Mets earlier in his career. If you want to be adventurous, you can bet on Conforto to collect an RBI or multiple bases, which aren’t far-fetched possibilities based on his season thus far. But since he has just two career at-bats against Tampa’s Ryan Pepiot, we'll play it safe and only bet on Conforto to get one hit on Saturday.
