Let’s take a look at a same-game parlay for today’s MLB action. Here is a same-game parlay for Cubs vs. Nationals.
MLB Same Game Parlay Odds & Picks: Cubs vs. Nationals
- Leg 1: Marcus Stroman Over 4.5 K’s (-166)
- Leg 2: Willson Contreras 2+ Total Bases (+105)
- Leg 3: Nico Hoerner 2+ Total Bases (-210)
Right off the bat, Marcus Stroman will take on a Nationals lineup that has six batters striking out at least 21.4% of the time against righties in the last 30 days. There will be plenty of opportunities for Stroman to earn his strikeouts. He also projects to go pretty deep in tonight’s game against a Nationals lineup that has a .092 ISO and wOBA of .272 in the last 30 days against righties.
He’ll take on Paolo Espino, who has a 5.37 xFIP in the last 30 days. Righties have hit a .470 wOBA and ISO of .412 against Espino in his last 54 plate appearances against righties.
So let’s back some righties on the Cubs. Willson Contreras has a .254 ISO and wOBA of .339 against righties in the last 30 days, while Nico Hoerner is batting a .337 wOBA with just 9.1% of strikeouts against righties in the last 30 days.
I also like P.J. Higgins to get a hit, but he’s currently not listed on FanDuel. He’s another option if you’d prefer swapping someone else out. You’ll just have to wait until lineups are announced before getting the chance to insert him in your Same-Game Parlay.

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.
