MLB Same Game Parlay Odds & Picks: Diamondbacks vs. Giants

  • Leg 1: Merrill Kelly Over 4.5 Ks  (-128)
  • Leg 2: Daulton Varsho 2+ Total Bases (+105)
  • Leg 3: Emmanuel Rivera 2+ Total Bases (+115)

The Arizona Diamondbacks have an edge in tonight’s game against the Giants. Merrill Kelly will take the hill for Arizona and he’s been really good lately. In the last 30 days, Kelly has had an xFIP of 3.53. He’s also earned 25.2% of strikeouts in that time frame while limiting walks to under 5%.

He’s taking on a Giants lineup that has six batters striking out 20.8% of the time or more in the last 30 days against righties. Kelly should be able to go deep in tonight’s game and will also have plenty of opportunities to earn his strikeouts against this lineup.

On the other hand, Jakob Junis will get the call for the Giants. He has a 5.03 xFIP in the last 30 days and struggles to earn ground balls. Instead, he’s allowing line drives 29.8% of the time when balls are batted into play. Arizona doesn’t have the best lineup in baseball, but at the top of the order, Daulton Varsho and Emmanuel Rivera have done damage against righties.

Varsho is hitting a .273 ISO with a wOBA of .390 against righties in the last 30 days while Rivera is hitting a .417 ISO with a wOBA of .404.

I’ll take my chances with Arizona tonight.

What are Player Props?
Player props refer to wagers that bettors can make based on player performance in a specific game. The majority of player props are built around the most common statistical benchmarks for a specific sport such as yards and touchdowns in football. Most player props are straight over/under plays that open at or near -110 and are adjusted based on where the money lands.
