Let’s take a look at a same-game parlay for today’s MLB action. Here is a same-game parlay for Athletics vs. Astros.
MLB Same Game Parlay Odds & Picks: Athletics vs. Astros
- Leg 1: Under 8 (-110)
- Leg 2: Cristian Javier Over 6.5 strikeouts (-128)
- Leg 3: Yordan Alvarez to record 2+ total bases (-120)
We will have a rematch of a game a few weeks back between Cristian Javier and Cole Irvin, with the Athletics getting the 4-2 win in that game.
Javier was solid in that outing and only made three mistakes, but two were home runs. He’s been good against the A’s this year by allowing just four runs in nine inns. While the 6-8 record looks terrible, he’s been good even in losses as Houston is averaging just 3.15 runs in his starts.
Irvin was incredible in that start going seven and allowing just two earned in the win. Irvin has been a shining light in this forgettable season for Oakland and has an incredible 1.88 ERA in his last seven starts. He unfortunately also suffers from a lack of run support as the team is only averaging 2.73 runs per game in his starts.
We’ve seen both pitchers have great starts against these teams, and while this game could go either way, expect a lower-scoring matchup.

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.
