Parlays aren’t a good thing to count on to build your bankroll, but throwing a few dollars here and there can be a lot of fun. There is also a chance for big paydays if you can hit on the right MLB parlays. Let’s take a look at two parlays that make a whole lot of sense for Saturday.
Kansas City Royals (Game Two) +170 / Texas Rangers +150 ($100 Bet Pays $575)
Let’s throw a couple of underdogs together to get some real value on a parlay.
On the mound for the Kansas City Royals in this game will be Danny Duffy who wasn’t great in his last start against the Twins,but either was Jose Berrios who got rocked in the last start. Berrios went 5.1 innings giving up eight hits and four runs. The Royals offense has proven they are good, and they should find success again against Berrios. Getting the Royals at +170 in this game is a gift. Look for the Royals to pull the upset.
The Texas Rangers came away with a victory over the Colorado Rockies on Friday night and they are in great shape to get the job done again in this game. Kyle Gibson will get the start for the Rangers and although he hasn’t been great, he has had some bad luck. The Rangers bullpen is also well rested coming into this game so if it comes down to that, the Rangers should have the advantage. The Rockies bullpen has let them down, so even if German Marquez has a good start, the Bullpen could still lose it for them.
Twins vs Royals O 9.5 -110 (Game Two) / Texas Rangers +150 / Philadelphia Phillies -170 ($100 Bet Pays $658.02)
We already broke down above about how these pitchers have struggled and in this game that is going to lead to plenty of scoring by both teams. This game could move all the way up to 13 at a really nice price and still offer value.
The Philadelphia Phillies have had their struggles at times this year but they will send Aaron Nola and that should solve all issues. In the last two starts Nola has gone 14 innings total giving up five hits and two runs total.
