Top MLB Parlay Odds & Picks for Thursday, May 19 (2022)

May 19, 2022 - 1:16 PM

With such a small slate of games for May 19, to keep everyone occupied, we’ve made a three-team parlay that makes a lot of sense for today’s games.

New York Yankees vs. Baltimore Orioles 

I’m just going to say it. The Yankees are beating up on bad teams right now. That’s why they’re on a massive winning streak. But every team will get their opportunities to play against bad teams and the Yankees have capitalized.

Today, the Yankees will finish their series against the Orioles with Jordan Montgomery on the mound. Montgomery has a 4.03 xFIP in the last 30 days with 21.3% strikeouts and 4.6% of walks. Lefties have struggled against the lefty but righties have also had a hard time connecting for major contact against Montgomery.

The Orioles have a .106 ISO and wOBA of .274 against lefties in the last 30 days. Meanwhile, the Yankees will get Bradley Zimmermann, who has a 4.35 xFIP with 19.8% strikeouts. He’s also inducing just 38.3% ground balls in the last 30 days and has allowed 27.2% line drives.

The Yankees have a .212 ISO and wOBA of .314 against lefties in the last 30 days with so much power at the top of the order. Take the Yankees.

Bet: Yankees (-210 at DraftKings) 

Chicago White Sox vs. Kansas City Royals

I don’t care who is on the other side but when Carlos Hernandez is pitching, it’s an automatic fade. Hernandez still has an ERA nearing 10 on the season and has an xFIP of 7.28 with 10.9% of strikeouts and 11.8% of walks in the last 30 days.

Hernandez only induces 36.9% of ground balls and is giving up 22.6% of line-drive contact. Lefties and righties have smacked Hernandez around and he basically just can’t get anyone out.

Although the White Sox have been lagging on the offensive end, I still like the White Sox to do damage, just like every other team in the league against Hernandez. And while Vince Velasquez hasn’t been all that special either this year, he’s had some good performances mixed in with his bad ones this year. I’ll trust him more than Hernandez.

Bet: White Sox (-145 at DraftKings) 

Seattle Mariners vs. Boston Red Sox

The Red Sox will send out Rich Hill against the Mariners. Rich Hill is just your average, consistent, pitcher. He’ll keep you in the game throughout his appearance.

Meanwhile, it’ll be George Kirby on the mound for the Mariners. Kirby is a young pitcher who will go through some growing pains this year. He has struck out just 20.5% of batters and has been getting limited ground balls while allowing 23.3% of line drives in the last 30 days.

Righties have hit him hard in limited sample size and the Red Sox have plenty of hard-hitting righties that can do damage. I’m all in on the Red Sox after they defeated the Astros at home last night.

Bet: Red Sox (-135 at DraftKings)

Parlay: (+334 at DraftKings)
