Best MLB Parlay Bets: Brewers vs Cubs (2:20 PM, EST)

Cubs ML (-125) at DraftKings

On paper, this should be a relatively even matchup. But with Jameson Taillon getting the start for the Cubs, the odds swing considerably in Chicago’s direction. Despite making just three starts, Taillon is arguably one of the early frontrunners for the Cy Young. He's limited the damage to just three earned runs over 18 innings of work with the Cubs winning all three of his starts. He also has a good track record against most of Milwaukee’s hitters. 

Meanwhile, rookie Tobias Myers gets for the Brewers. He’s been largely solid, although giving up three home runs in 10 innings of work is a concern. The Brewers have also lost both of his starts this year. Given the disparity in this pitching matchup, the Cubs winning Saturday’s matinee feels close to a lock.

Best MLB Parlay Bets: Angels vs Guardians (6:10 PM, EST)

Guardians -1.5 (+145) at DraftKings

The Angels are becoming the kind of team that bettors should look to fade every day. They’ve already lost Mike Trout, Miguel Sano, and Anthony Rendon to the IL, so the LA lineup has been weakened considerably. That should make things a little easier for Cleveland starter Ben Lively, who has held teams to two runs or less in each of his three starts this year. 

Amidst all of their injuries, the Angels have lost 11 of their last 14 games with eight of those losses coming by multiple runs. Reid Detmers has actually been one of the team’s better starting pitches, which could give the Angels a chance. But the Guardians have some big bats, especially at the top of the order. If the Guardians take an early lead in this game, the Angels may not have a path back, giving Cleveland a chance to give the Angels another lopsided defeat.

Total Parlay Odds: +341 at DraftKings Sportsbook

Best MLB Parlay Bets: Braves vs Dodgers (9:10 PM, EST)

Tyler Glasnow 7+ Strikeouts (-255) at DraftKings

Glasnow looks like he could lead the league in strikeouts this season. He’s hit at least seven strikeouts in four of his last five starts, including double-digit strikeouts in two of those games. Glasnow also has 20 career strikeouts against Atlanta hitters in 53 combined at-bats. That should allow him another high strikeout total on Saturday. But since this is a parlay, we can afford to be a little more conservative with Glasnow’s strikeout total, increasing the chances he’ll get there.

Bryce Elder 5+ Hits Allowed (-205) at DraftKings

Elder only has a 1.50 ERA through his first two starts of the season. But he’s also allowed 12 hits in 12 innings of work. That’s on par with his 2023 campaign when Elder allowed 160 hits in 174.2 innings. On Saturday, he’ll face one of the best lineups in baseball. He’s had trouble with hitters like Mookie Betts and Freddie Freeman before, which is why we think it'll be hard for Elder to avoid giving up some hits to the Dodgers.

Mookie Betts Hit (-280) at DraftKings

We assume Betts will be one of those players getting a hit against Elder. He’s 2 for 5 in his career against Atlanta’s starter. More importantly, he’s batting .363 on the season with 49 hits in 34 games. Despite a little bit of a slump lately, the odds are favorable for Betts to get back on track with a hit against Elder on Saturday.

Marcell Ozuna Hit (-170) at DraftKings

Ozuna is another safe bet to record a hit on Saturday. At the moment, he might be the safest bet in Atlanta’s lineup. He’s one of the few Atlanta hitters with a good track record against Glasnow, going 3 for 7 with a double. Ozuna is also batting .310 on the season and should be a reliable player to target in our parlay.

Total Parlay Odds: +380 at DraftKings Sportsbook
