Best MLB Parlay Picks Today 2024 06 05

Our 3-leg MLB parlay consists of two moneyline wagers and a total. We are focusing on the Astros and Padres along with the under in the Los Angeles and Pittsburgh game. 

James Paxton and Paul Skenes have been outstanding on the mound in 2024, which is why the under is the backbone of our parlay.

MLB Parlay Picks Today: Cardinals vs. Astros  (2:10 PM, EST)

Astros Moneyline (-162) at FanDuel

The Cardinals and Astros wrap up their series on Wednesday afternoon. St. Louis is 28-30 in third place in the NL Central. Houston is 27-34 trailing Seattle by seven games in the AL West

The Cardinals are starting Miles Mikolas who is 3-6 with a 5.54 ERA. He has struck out 50 batters in 65 innings. Despite the struggles Mikolas had had in 2024, the Cardinals are playing their best baseball right now.

The Astros are going with Ronel Blanco who is 5-1 with a 2.44 ERA. He has 57 strikeouts in 59 innings. Blanco has been one of the best stories in baseball this season as he threw a no-hitter in his first start in 2024. 

The Cardinals have relied heavily on their bats the last two weeks which is why they have been so successful. Blanco is not the guy St. Louis wants to see in this matchup.

Look for Blanco to shut down this Cardinals lineup and for the Houston bats to score many runs off Mikolas.

MLB Parlay Picks Today: Dodgers vs. Pirates  (6:40 PM, EST)

Under 9 (-122) at FanDuel

The Dodgers take on the Pirates in a matchup that includes two great pitchers. Los Angeles is 38-23 and currently holds a seven-game lead in the NL West. Pittsburgh is 27-32 in fourth place in the NL Central. 

Los Angeles is starting James Paxton who is 5-0 with a 3.29 ERA. He has struck out 31 batters in 52 innings. Paxton is one of the best in the league at pitching to contact, which is why he has been so successful.

Pittsburgh is going with rookie sensation Paul Skenes who is 2-0 with a 2.45 ERA. He has struck out 30 batters in 22 innings and has a WHIP of 0.91. 

Anytime we get a matchup like this between two great starting pitchers it’s sometimes more beneficial to take the under in the game rather than a side.

We expect both these pitchers to dominate the offenses and for very few runs to be scored in this matchup.

MLB Parlay Picks Today: Padres vs. Angels  (9:40 PM, EST)

Padres Moneyline (-152) at FanDuel

The Padres are taking on the Angels in a matchup that includes Dylan Cease. San Diego is 32-31 trailing the Dodgers by seven games in the NL West. The Angels are 22-38 in last place in the AL West. 

The Padres are going with Dylan Cease who is 5-4 with a 3.42 ERA. He has struck out 87 batters in 71 innings. Cease has a WHIP of 0.97 in 2024.

The Angels are starting Jose Soriano who is 2-5 with a 3.86 ERA. He has 54 strikeouts in 58.1 innings. In his last start, he went six innings and allowed four runs on seven hits. 

San Diego is too strong of a team to not win this matchup.

We expect Cease to have a great start and for the Padres bats to excel against Soriano and the Angels.
