BlackJack’s Thursday Mid-Flight Parlay
The Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook
Sometimes our parlays jump off the page. Sometimes we see heavy favorites, and parlaying them is a great way to extract some value out of bigger numbers. Some days it’s analytics driven, and some days it’s a feeling. Today is a feeling day.
I looked at this card today and felt a parlay coming. I can’t explain why, there are just four plays here that I love putting together and there’s good value on them, so why the hell not take the shot?
Here’s today’s parlay winner:
Chicago White Sox at Minnesota Twins
1:10 p.m. ET
The Twins send their ace Jose Berrios to the mound to face the hapless White Sox early in the afternoon. Berrios should be enough to get the job done here against the Chisox and stop Minnesota’s two-game skid.
The Pick: Twins moneyline (-205)
Miami Marlins at St. Louis Cardinals
1:15 p.m. ET
Miles Mikolas has been a very nice story for the Cards this season, although he lost his last start. Factor that in with the Cardinals losing their last two games to the Marlins, and we have a bounce-back special on track here.
The Pick: Cardinals moneyline (-223)
Seattle Mariners at Tampa Bay Rays
7:10 p.m. ET
The Mariners have been impressive and continue to win in the face of losing Robinson Cano to a suspension, having a down year from King Felix and having other injuries through the season. The Rays meanwhile, simply cannot hit enough to score with this M’s team that swept them last week.
The Pick: Mariners moneyline (-110)
Washington Capitals at Vegas Golden Knights
8 p.m. ET
I. Still. Believe.
The Pick: Golden Knights moneyline (-150)
Parlay pays $585 on a $100 wager.
Let’s cash it, baby. TCB time.
