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

  • Leg 1: Nick Lodolo Over 6.5 Ks (-152)
  • Leg 2: Donovan Solano 2+ Total Bases (-145)
  • Leg 3: Jose Barrero 1+ Hit (-145)

The Field of Dreams game is a bit tricky. Nothing really stands out to me in this game, but I promised I’d put together a parlay for this specific game.

I’m liking the Reds to win this game with Nick Lodolo on the mound. He’s struck out 29.1% of batters faced in the last 30 days and will face a Cubs lineup that has struck out over 24% of the time in that same time frame.

Meanwhile, Drew Smyly will pitch for the Cubs. The lefty will have to face eight righties in the Reds’ lineup tonight. That’s not a good thing.

Smyly has been a bit worse against righties in the last 30 days, giving up a wOBA of .333. This isn’t a brutal number, but a number that still stands out. Jose Barrero has a .750 ISO and wOBA of .483 against his last eight lefties faced. The young rookie has shown that he’s very capable of hitting lefties in the majors.

Lastly, Donovan Solano is hitting a .200 ISO with a wOBA of .408 against lefties. He’s another righty that can smack Smyly with a high line-drive rate and a low ground-ball rate.

I’m siding with the Reds tonight and this Same-Game Parlay reflects that.

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.
