MLB Parlay Picks Today: Mets vs. Cardinals (1:15 PM, EST)

Under 8 Runs (-115) at FanDuel

The St. Louis Cardinals will host the New York Mets for the series finale at Busch Stadium on Wednesday afternoon. New York will use lefty Jose Quintana, while St. Louis will throw Sonny Gray. 

Quintana comes into this game with a 1-3 record and a 5.20 ERA. In his last contest against St. Louis, he pitched eight innings and gave up just a single run in late April. 

Gray enters with a 4-1 record while maintaining an outstanding 0.89 ERA. He has had a great season in St. Louis and picked up exactly where he left off last year in Minnesota. 

New York is currently 17-18 on the year putting them in fourth in the NL East, while St Louis is dead last in the NL Central

Look for limited runs in this game due to the lack of offensive production. Also, expect both pitchers to have continued success, as they each have a great track record against these teams.

MLB Parlay Picks Today: Padres vs. Cubs (2:20 PM, EST)

Cubs Moneyline (+106) at FanDuel

San Diego is currently 19-19 on the year. On the other hand, Chicago has been tremendous this season, at 21-15. 

San Diego is sending right-handed pitcher Dylan Cease to the mound, while Chicago is going with Hayden Wesneski.

Cease is currently 4-2 on the year with a 2.55 ERA. He has struck out 48 batters in 42.1 innings. In his last three games, Cease is averaging six innings while giving up 2.3 earned runs. 

On the other side, Chicago is going with Wesnecki who currently holds a 2-0 record with a 0.54 ERA. Wesnecki only has 16.2 innings on the year, but his numbers are very impressive. He has struck out 14 batters in 16.2 innings with a 0.72 WHIP. 

Look for Chicago to hit Dylan Cease around the park today due to their stacked offensive lineup and great production this year. This is an excellent price for Chicago at +106 which we are willing to take at Wrigley Field.

MLB Parlay Picks Today: Orioles vs. Nationals (6:45 PM, EST)

Orioles Moneyline (-176) at FanDuel

On Wednesday night, the Baltimore Orioles will visit the Washington Nationals. Baltimore will send out Kyle Bradish, while Washington will start lefty Mitchell Parker. 

Baltimore comes into this contest with a 23-11 record, which puts them in first place in the AL East. Washington is currently 17-17 on the year, and seven games out of first place in the NL East.

Bradish is currently 0-0 on the year with a 1.93 ERA. He has only thrown 4.2 innings on the season due to an elbow injury he suffered. The lack of innings Bradish has thrown this year is a big reason why Baltimore is not priced north of -200. 

On the other side, Washington is going with Mitchell Parker. He is 2-1 on the year with a 2.53 ERA. Parker has struck out 19 batters in 21.1 innings, with a WHIP of 1.08. 

Anytime Baltimore is south of -200 and facing a mediocre team, it is a good idea to throw their moneyline in a parlay. Look for Baltimore’s loaded lineup to hit Parker around the yard and for Bradish to dominate.
