We went 2-1 with last Monday’s MLB Same Game Parlays at BetRivers Sportsbook coming one run short of sweeping the entire board! The night started off in Philadelphia where the Phillies hammered the Tigers and Aaron Nola beasted his way to 21 pitching outs to exceed his prop with ease. The Astros plated six runs in the first inning against Alek Manoah and went on to score 11 total making our plays on the full game and team total over no sweat winners. Unfortunately, Toronto only managed four runs while leaving a whopping 20 runners on base. San Diego did all its damage against Kyle Hendricks early but it still wasn’t enough to hand us a loss on the first five innings under. “The Professor” still managed to throw six innings with Blake Snell doing the same to also eclipse his pitching outs prop. Let’s kick off a brand new week by adding to the bankroll once again with some parlay picks on another abbreviated slate - SLAM YOUR MAN!!

Cincinnati Reds vs. Kansas City Royals
Regardless of whether the Reds came through for us in St. Louis over the weekend, we’re firing right back on what I truly believe is a dark horse contender to steal the NL Central crown. David Bell’s troops are currently installed 11-1 dogs to pull off the feat so you might want to throw some beer money on Elly De la Cruz and co. now just in case it comes to fruition. Because let’s face it, the division is hot garbage!
Cincy has no business winning this game, right? Luke Weaver likely shouldn’t be a member of any MLB team’s starting rotation. Zack Greinke has been at his absolute best when pitching at Kaufmann where his ERA sits at a season-low 3.00 while holding the opposition to a .248 batting average against. That’s all hot noise! Cincinnati is starting to feel it and it’s starting to show on the field of play with series wins logged against the Dodgers, Red Sox, and Cubs in recent weeks. They went into Wrigley and busted out the brooms! Get used to it peeps – we’ll be backing the Reds a ton the remainder of the MLB betting season!
SAME GAME MLB PARLAY: REDS MONEYLINE + REDS OVER TEAM TOTAL
I don’t know about you, but I’m getting that warm and fuzzy feeling about the prospect of Jesus Luzardo and Logan Gilbert putting on a clinic when the young up-and-comers square off against one another in the opener of this interleague set in the pitcher’s haven otherwise known as T-Mobile Park. We confidently laid the moneyline and run-line in Luzardo’s last start against the Royals and came away surefire winners after he tossed seven innings of two-hit ball with 8 K to lead Miami to the carefree 6-1 win. The southpaw looks to finally be back on track having gone for at least 7 K in each of his last four starts. While the M’s have been better against LHP (4.7 RPG) than RHP (4.2 RPG), I’ll pay up to see if they can excel versus a locked in Luzardo.
Gilbert also looks primed for another solid showing running up against a Marlins batting lineup that only has two bats producing decent run value against the slider – the righty’s most deadly and second-most used pitch to date. While 26-19 versus righties for a near 10 unit rate of return against righties, Miami’s averaging just over 4.0 runs per game against them. Equally solid both home and away, Gilbert should thrive versus a Marlins lineup he dominated the lone time he ran up against it last season and go deep into this game.

Philadelphia Phillies vs. Arizona Diamondbacks
I have no clue who will take the starting bump for the visiting Phillies when they open an extended four-game series with the D’backs on Monday night. I don’t care! These SGP positions have everything to do with fading Tommy Henry and his lackluster stuff. We did so in his last start in D.C. and was rewarded with easy ticket cashes on the full game over as well as Washington going over its team total.
While 3-1 with a 4.37 ERA, the lefty is serving up 1.6 HR and 3.8 walks all the while tallying just 5.4 strikeouts per nine innings. He’s not missing bats evidenced by the near 8.0 hits allowed per start. His 5.78 FIP lets it be known that more negative regression is headed his way. No better time than tonight with Bryce Harper and co. looking to settle the score after he earned a win by tossing 5.2 innings of four hit (2 HR) and 2 ER ball at them in CBP to earn the win back on May 22.
