MLB Parlay Picks Today: Cardinals vs. Phillies  (6:40 PM, EST)

Phillies Moneyline (-180) at FanDuel

St. Louis travels to Philadelphia for the first game of this series. The Cardinals are 27-27 trailing Milwaukee by five games for first place in the NL Central. The Phillies are 39-18 and have a six game lead on Atlanta in the NL East

The Cardinals are starting Miles Mikolas who is 3-5 with a 5.64 ERA. He has 45 strikeouts in 59 innings. 

The Cardinals expected more out of Mikolas in 2024 especially after adding Sonny Gray, but he has not lived up to the expectations yet. 

The Phillies are going with Aaron Nola who is 6-2 with a 3.04 ERA. He has struck out 65 batters in 71 innings. In Nola’s last three starts he has gone 22 innings while only giving up four earned runs. 

St. Louis has been the hottest team in baseball the last two weeks winning 12 of the last 15 games, but the schedule is getting a lot harder. 

Look for Nola to slow down the Cardinals’ bats, and the Phillies to score many runs off Mikolas in this matchup.

MLB Parlay Picks Today: Rockies vs. Dodgers  (10:10 PM, EST)

Dodgers -1.5 (-146) at FanDuel

Colorado travels to Los Angeles to take on the Dodgers for a three game series. The Rockies are 20-35 in last place in the NL West. Los Angeles is 36-22 and have been leading the division the entire year. 

The Rockies are going with Dakota Hudson who is 1-7 with a 5.54 ERA. He has struck out 28 batters in 50.1 innings and has a WHIP of 1.59. 

The Dodgers are starting Walker Buehler who is 1-2 with 4.26 ERA. Buehler is getting back into the swing of things after missing the last couple years due to injury. When he is on, he is a top pitcher in the league with outstanding strikeout numbers. 

The Rockies have been one of the worst teams in baseball in 2024 and for a good reason. With a loaded lineup like the Dodgers have, Colorado is going to have a tough time keeping this game close.

We are confident in taking the Dodgers run-line in this matchup and expect them to score a ton of runs off Hudson.

Bet on Dodgers -1.5 (-146) at FanDuel 

MLB Parlay Picks Today: Angels vs. Mariners  (10:10 PM, EST)

Mariners Moneyline (-166) at FanDuel

To wrap up our parlay, we are focusing on a matchup between the Angels and Mariners. Los Angeles is 21-34 trailing Seattle by nine games in the AL West. The Mariners are 31-26 and currently have a 3.5 game lead on the Rangers for first place. 

The Angels are starting Jose Soriano who is 2-5 with a 3.61 ERA. He has struck out 51 batters in 52.1 innings. He is coming off a six inning performance in which he allowed four runs against Cleveland. 

The Mariners are going with Bryan Woo who has been dominant in 2024. He is 2-0 with a 1.66 ERA. 

Woo has struck out 16 batters in 21.2 innings and has a WHIP of 0.60. In Woo’s last three starts he has gone 17.1 innings allowing four earned runs on ten hits. 

We expect the Mariners to get the job done with Woo on the hill, extending their divisional lead.
