Vaughn Dalzell breaks down how he’s betting the New York Mets vs Colorado Rockies and Houston Astros vs Oakland Athletics.

ML Parlay: (+104)

Astros ML (-260) at Athletics

Mets ML (-210) at Rockies

We have a ML parlay for our bets bets today with two heavy favorites in the Mets and Astros.

Max Scherzer and the Mets take on Connor Seabold and the Rockies at Coors Field. Mad Max has an outstanding 36.6 K% and .162 OBA against current Rockies’ hitters over 142 plate appearances and New York has won five out of seven starts that Scherzer pitched this season.

I have been riding the Rockies at home recently, but this is a better fade spot after taking a step up in competition from hosting the Marlins, Reds and Pirates.

Colorado won two out of three in New York earlier this season, losing just the opener, 1-0. Scherzer did not pitch in that series, so I like the chances the Mets open the series with a win once again.

For Houston versus Oakland, well there isn’t much to say as one team with will the AL West (Houston) and the other will finish at the bottom (Oakland).

When James Kaprielian pitches against Houston, Oakland is 0-3 in his career, losing by two, three and six runs. Kaprielian has 14 strikeouts to nine walks over 14.1 innings of work against the Astros. Oakland is 1-7 when Kaprielian pitches this season and he owns a 0-4 record with a 8.68 ERA.

Houston’s Hunter Brown owns a 40.9 K% and .238 OBA over 22 plate appearances against nine different Oakland hitters. With the Oakland offense being historically bad, I feel safe taking taking the Astros to round out this ML parlay.

I played the Houston Astros ML and New York Mets ML in a parlay for +104 odds. I would play this to -110 before opting for either team -1 or -1.5 for +100 or better.
