The MLB seemingly has put most COVID-19 concerns away for the time (besides the Cardinals) and is running relatively smoothly over the last two weeks. The MLB has been providing bettors plenty of value in a strange season. Here is a quick two-team parlay for Friday, August 14th:
L.A. Dodgers vs L.A. Angels - LAD -160 ; O/U 9
The Dodgers will have Clayton Kershaw taking the mound, realistically that should be reason enough to take the Dodgers. Kershaw has been the most dominant pitchers across the last decade posting a 2.45 career ERA. That doesn’t even mention the electric offense of the Dodgers, which is arguably the deepest lineup in baseball. With stars like Cody Bellinger and Mookie Betts in the outfield and veteran Justin Turner manning the hot corner. The Dodgers build off a win their last time out over the Padres.
Facing one of the most dangerous lineups in baseball? Patrick Sandoval, who has made just 12 starts in his MLB career and has posted a 4.56 ERA. The Dodgers are a decent favorite but the value is there with Kershaw facing a younger Sandoval.
First Leg of MLB Parlay: Dodgers -160
Texas Rangers vs Colorado Rockies ; TEX -120 ; O/U 12
The Rockies started off this season as well as anybody in the MLB but has fallen back losing four of their last five, including a series loss to struggling Diamondbacks. The Rockies on the other hand have won four of their last five games and will send out their ace in Lance Lynn, who has been exceptional this season with a 2-0 record and just a 1.16 ERA on the year. The Rockies continue their slump as the Rangers are able to get away from Coors Field as the road favorites.
Second Leg of MLB Parlay: Rangers -120
