It’s October, which means that the playoffs are here. Four games kick off the 2023 postseason today, beginning at 3:00 p.m. EST. With the stakes heightened, here is the best MLB parlay available.
MLB Parlay Leg #1: Minnesota Twins Money Line
Everyone knows that the Twins have had a postseason losing streak that’s unrivaled. Eventually, it needs to end, and today is that day. Offseason trade acquisition Pablo Lopez will get the start today, taking on the Blue Jays.
His lone start against Toronto wasn’t sharp, but he holds righties to a .205/.254/.342 slash line this season. Toronto’s lineup is heavily right-handed. Meanwhile, the Blue Jays are starting Kevin Gausman, who allowed six runs against the Twins the last time he faced them. Minnesota snaps the skid tonight.
MLB Parlay Leg #2: Milwaukee Brewers Over 4.5 Total Team Runs
Arizona limped into the postseason, losing four straight to drop into the NL’s final wild-card spot. Their weakness all season was pitching. The Diamondbacks are weak in the bullpen, so it’ll be on the Game 1 starter to deliver.
That would be Brandon Pfaadt, who finished his rookie 2023 campaign with a 5.72 ERA. Opposite Pfaadt is a Brewers team averaging over 5.00 runs per game since August began. The Brew Crew will take Game 1 at home, thanks to an offensive explosion.
MLB Parlay Leg #3: Marlins @ Phillies Under 7.5
These NL East rivals have at least two more meetings, with one side getting the chance to send the other home. In five of the last seven Marlins vs. Phillies matchups, the under won. Today’s starting pitcher battle should make it happen again.
Jesus Luzardo is starting for Miami, and he had a 2-0 record with a 3.65 ERA against the Phillies this season. Philadelphia is countering with Zack Wheeler, who held the Marlins to six runs across 18.0 innings pitched. Both starters should deliver in a tight, tense game.
Total MLB Parlay Odds: +582
