MLB Same Game Parlay Odds & Picks: Nationals vs. Cubs

Washington Nationals vs. Chicago Cubs

  • Leg 1: Over 8 (-104)
  • Leg 2: Willson Contreras to record 2+ total bases (+115)
  • Leg 3: Keegan Thompson  under 5.5 strikeouts (-132)

Anibal Sanchez’s second stint with the Nationals has not been going well. He’s coming in today losing all four of his starts with an ERA of 7.65 and a 1.50 WHIP.

Keegan Thompson will go for the Cubs and has been solid since moving into the starting rotation. On his better starts, he can locate the fastball, get the cutter to move into the corner, and the curveball to stay low, but he struggles when he doesn’t have control.

You can tell he’ll have a rough day when he knows he can’t find his spot, so he’ll throw more over the plate. He doesn’t have overpowering stuff, so he can be roughed up.

The Nats, even without Juan Soto and Josh Bell, have a solid lineup. They’re hitting .297 with a .333 BABIP and a 13.7% strikeout rate since trading away Bell and Soto. This is a game to expect a ton of offense.

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.
