Let’s take a look at a same-game parlay for today’s MLB action. Here is a same-game parlay for Giants vs. Athletics.
MLB Same Game Parlay Odds & Picks: Giants vs. Athletics
- Leg 1: Giants -1.5 (-126)
- Leg 2: Carlos Rodon over 8.5 strikeouts (+108)
- Leg 3: Brandon Belt to record 2+ total bases (+125)
Many believed that Carlos Rondon would be traded during the deadline, but the Giants kept their ace. When you look beyond the surface numbers, he’s been incredible as he’s in the 90th percentile or above in xERA, xwOBA, and strikeout rate. The A’s have struggled all season, and Rodon’s strikeout abilities, which include the seven-highest strikeout rate (23.8%), should have the Oakland lineup walking away empty-handed.
It’s been a tough season for Adam Oller. He’s moved back and forth from Triple-A to Oakland, and the A’s have experimented with him from the rotation to the bullpen, and now he is back as a starter. His second stint has not been successful either, as he has a 5.74 ERA and 1.28 WHIP in three recent starts. He throws the cutter on most of his pitches, which is supposed to break in on the hands, but you see it run flat and over the plate, and that’s why batters have a .591 SLG.

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.
