BlackJack’s Saturday Baseball Parlay

Brothers, it’s been a weird couple of days. Unexpected outcomes, strange comebacks, rainouts — we’ve encountered a little bit of everything. But if there is one thing I know, it’s that we don’t quit. Not now. Not ever. Today we strike back. Today we reclaim what is ours. Today we stand up and shout “I AM.” Today we take a parlay ticket and march it to the window and cash it.

Chicago Cubs ML (-255)

2:20 p.m. ET

Jon Lester is on the mound against James Shields. I could probably stop right there, but I won’t because you deserve a little more. The Cubs have not been as dominant as predicted, but they are 5-5 over their past 10. The White Sox on the other hand are 1-9 over their past 10. The losses have been bad, too. The Cubs offense seems to have hit its stride, and with this matchup on the mound, the choice is easy with the Cubs.

Houston Astros ML (-251)

7:10 p.m. ET

Charlie Morton has been incredible all season for the defending champs. He is 4-0 with a 2.16 ERA. He has been simply outstanding. The Rangers counter with Doug Fister, who is 1-3 with a less-than-stellar 4.02 ERA. The Astros are also coming off a loss to Texas, and it is highly unlikely the Rangers get the job done twice in a row with Morton pitching. Comfortably take the Astros in this battle of Texas.

Los Angeles Dodgers (-185)

9:10 p.m. ET

The Cincinnati Reds have won four in a row. The Dodgers have lost two in a row to the Reds. I simply do not see Cincinnati sweeping LA in this series, nor do I see the Dodgers losing five of six. Also, Homer Bailey is on the bump for the Reds, and at 0-5 with a 5.61 ERA, he is one of the worst pitchers in MLB. Take the Dodgers to salvage something here and get the win.

The Payout: $100 Wins $190

Let’s cash this parlay and put that money in our pockets brother.
