MLB Same Game Parlay Odds & Picks: Pirates vs. Diamondbacks

  • Leg 1: Merrill Kelly Over 5.5 Ks (+124)
  • Leg 2: J.T. Brubaker Under 5.5 Ks (-158)
  • Leg 3: Daulton Varsho 1+ Hit (-200)

The Pirates will send J.T. Brubaker to the hill for today’s game. Brubaker has a 3.39 xFIP while striking out 24% of batters faced in the last 30 days.

However, the Diamondbacks have struck out just 20.2% of the time against righties in the last 30 days. Only Seth Beer and Geraldo Perdomo have struck out more than 20% of the time against righties. Both of those batters are buried in the bottom of the order. Brubaker likely won’t be earning a ton of strikeouts today.

Plus, Daulton Varsho is hitting a .268 ISO with a wOBA of .391 against righties in his last 67 plate appearances against them. If anyone’s going to do damage against Brubaker, it’s Varsho.

Meanwhile, Merrill Kelly will take the hill for the Diamondbacks. He, on the other hand, should end up with a high strikeout rate. He’s struck out 22.7% of batters faced in the last 30 days and is taking on a Pirates lineup that has six batters who have struck out at least 21% of the time against righties in that same time frame.

Back the Diamondbacks in this SGP. You won’t regret it.

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.
