Last Saturday’s MLB Same Game Parlays ended up 2-1 which saw us add to the bankroll over at BetRivers Sportsbook. The day started off with a surefire winner on the Texas Rangers who took the wood to Kyle Freeland right from the opening pitch ultimately tagging him for eight runs through two innings to cash the over of their team total and run-line and knock the lefty out after only logging six outs. Though Max Scherzer’s start was pushed to the first game of Sunday’s DH with the Guardians, the Mets went on to score the moneyline win with Mad Max matching his longest outing of the year to exceed his pitching outs prop. We ended up splitting our final parlay with the Dodgers going over their team total, but did so late which allowed Miles Mikolas to go deeper into the game than anticipated. Here’s to today’s MLB same game parlays treating us to another fun-filled day that replenishes the bottom line – SLAM YOUR MAN!!

San Francisco Giants vs. Milwaukee Brewers
April was a nightmare but May has been nothing short of fantastic for Logan Webb who looks to have settled into a groove. He’s the owner of a miniscule 1.30 ERA over his last four starts by way of allowing 21 hits (1 HR) and 4 ER with a solid 22:8 K/BB ratio over 27.2 innings. Each and every one of those outings was of the quality variety. At the other end of the spectrum has been Corbin Burnes who entered the MLB betting season one of the favorites to land the NL Cy Young Award at BetRivers. Since then, the righty has amassed a 4-4 record to go along with a 3.97 ERA and 1.218 WHIP. His FIP clocking in at 4.81 paints an even uglier picture! Since San Francisco dropped three of four at Arizona in the middle of May, it’s tallied wins against the MLB odds in seven of its last nine games and won all three series. Though Milwaukee sits perched atop the NL Central standings, it only just snapped a three-series losing streak by taking two of three from the Astros. The offense has been completely hit or miss during that stretch. With a locked in Webb on the bump, I’m banking on the latter once again rearing its ugly head.
SAME GAME MLB PARLAY: GIANTS MONEYLINE + WEBB OVER PITCHING OUTS
We faded Tanner Bibee in his most recent turn against the Mets last Sunday. Though he didn’t have his best stuff, the rookie still managed to churn out a quality start by way of tossing six innings of 2 ER ball while only managing 4 K and issuing a pair of free passes. I’ve come away extremely impressed with the youngsters ability to battle and limit damage by way of not giving up home runs (0.3/9) and limit hard contact (No. 37). I can’t say the same for Jack Flaherty who continues to have all kinds of issues not serving up free passes. His 1.588 WHIP has felt the brunt of it all with the righty averaging 5.8 BB/9. Cleveland owns a middle of the pack walk rate (No. 15), but has taken walks at a 9.2 percent clip in the comfort of its home digs (No. 10). Look for Jose Ramirez and his mates to get some early separation on the board which allows Bibee to settle in and execute the secondaries to put Cleveland in a position to hold serve.
SAME GAME MLB PARLAY: GUARDIANS MONEYLINE + BIBEE OVER PITCHING OUTS
Miami Marlins vs. Los Angeles Angels
I’ve made it a point to stay away from the Angels over the last 10 or so days after they failed to come through for me on a couple of series bets in the most annoying of fashions. However, I simply can’t ignore this spot on Saturday night with Shohei Ohtani set to square off against the impotent free-swinging offense of the Miami Marlins. That paired with the Halos staring back at the enigmatic Edward Cabrera and his 6.0 BB/9 average leads me to believe Mike Trout and co. will win this game going away and hang a crooked number on the board in the process. Miami rates out in the bottom third of the league in OPS against right-handers (.680) in averaging a paltry 3.7 runs per game. On the flipside, LA is 22-15 and averages 4.8 runs per game against righties. While the Angels rank out in the bottom third of the league in walk rate, I simply don’t envision Cabrera excelling in this spot and would be shocked if he got through five.
