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

Cubs Moneyline (-152) at FanDuel

Our parlay starts with the first game of the day, a matchup between the Mets and Cubs. New York is 35-38 in fourth place in the NL East, and Chicago is 36-39, trailing Milwaukee by 8.5 games in the NL Central

The Mets are starting Jose Quintana, who is 2-5 with a 4.98 ERA in 2024. He has struck out 50 batters in 72.1 innings and has a WHIP of 1.37. Quintana is 1-2 in road games with a 6.68 ERA in 2024. 

The Cubs are going with rookie sensation Shota Imanaga. He is 7-1 with a 1.89 ERA. He has struck out 78 batters in 76 innings and is coming off a seven-inning performance against the Cardinals, allowing just one earned run on four hits.

Imanaga is currently the favorite to win the NL Rookie of the Year award at +120 on FanDuel sportsbook.

We expect Imanaga to dominate the Mets lineup and go deep into this game. Look for the Cubs to lean on Christopher Morel, who leads the team in home runs and RBI.

MLB Parlay Picks Today: Braves vs. Yankees (7:05 PM, EST)

Under 8 (-115) at FanDuel

The Braves take on the Yankees in a matchup featuring two great starting pitchers. Atlanta is 41-31, trailing the Phillies by seven games in the NL East. New York is 51-25, leading the AL East by 1.5 games on Baltimore. 

The Braves are going with left-handed pitcher Chris Sale, who is 9-2 with a 2.98 ERA in 2024. He has struck out 99 batters in 81.2 innings, putting him in the top ten in the league in strikeouts this season. 

The Yankees are starting Carlos Rodon who is 9-3 with a 3.28 ERA. He has 81 strikeouts in 85 innings. Rodon has a 1.11 WHIP and is 6-1 in his last seven games. 

These starting pitchers have been dominant, and we expect both arms to put up outstanding performances in this matchup. Look for very few runs to be scored in this game and for us to cash out under 8 wager.

MLB Parlay Picks Today: Mariners vs. Marlins (7:10 PM, EST)

Mariners Moneyline (-156) at FanDuel

To close our our parlay, we are taking the Mariners' moneyline against the Marlins. Seattle is 44-32 in first place in the AL West. Miami has had a very disappointing season as they are 25-49 trailing the Phillies by 24 games in the NL East.

The Mariners are starting George Kirby, who is 6-5 with a 3.54 ERA. He has fanned 84 batters in 86.1 innings and has a WHIP of 1.01. In his last three starts, he has gone 18 innings, allowing just three runs while recording 19 strikeouts. 

Trevor Rogers takes the hill for the Marlins. He is 1-8 with a 5.09 ERA and has 55 strikeouts in 69 innings. He is winless on the year at home and has an ERA of 5.35.

Miami just took two out of three games from St. Louis for a series win, but it gave up a lot of runs in the process.

We expect Trevor Rogers to struggle against this Mariners offense on Friday. Look for the Mariners to score runs early and help cash our Friday parlay.
