MLB Same Game Parlay Bets for Friday 6/21/24

Arizona Diamondbacks at Philadelphia Phillies

Jordan Montgomery Under 4.5 Strikeouts (-154)
Nick Castellanos to Record 2+ Total Bases (-105)
Philadelphia Phillies Alternate Total Runs: Over 3.5 (-265)

Combined Odds: +266

Jordan Montgomery enjoyed his best start as a member of the Arizona Diamondbacks his last time out, allowing zero earned runs while striking out seven batters against the Chicago White Sox at home. Despite his most recent outing, Montgomery ranks in just the ninth percentile in strikeout rate (15.4%) ahead of Friday's road showdown versus the Philadelphia Phillies.

While the Phillies are logging the seventh-highest strikeout rate (23.3%) against left-handed pitching, they have the fourth-best wOBA (.337), fifth-best wRC+ (118), and eighth-best ISO (.164) in that split. Philly has also improved versus lefties in the last 30 days, registering the 5th-best wOBA (.348), 4th-best wRC+ (126), 3rd-best ISO (.223), and 11th-lowest strikeout rate (20.1%) during that span.

Aside from fading Montgomery's strikeout prop, we'll back Nick Castellanos to record two-plus bases. Castellanos boasts a solid .331 wOBA, 114 wRC+, and .244 ISO versus left-handed pitchers this season.

Montgomery is giving up a .400 wOBA, .538 SLG, and 1.78 WHIP with just a 14.1% strikeout rate to right-handed hitters. On top of that, Castellanos has four doubles and two multi-hit performances in his last three games.

Castellanos is carrying +450 odds to hit a home run with warm weather expected at Citizens Bank Park.

Even though Montgomery blanked the White Sox in his last start, he's surrendered three-plus earned runs in 7 of his 11 outings in 2024. Meanwhile, the Phillies have produced four-plus runs in 7 of their last 11 contests.

Boston Red Sox at Cincinnati Reds

Tyler O'Neill to Record an RBI (+115)
Ceddane Rafaela to Record a Run (-105)

Combined Odds: +274

Right-handed bats have been able to have success against Andrew Abbott to the tune of a .324 wOBA and 1.78 HR/9. Weather is also supposed to be ideal at Great American Ball Park on Friday, giving the righties on the Boston Red Sox a premier matchup on the road versus the Cincinnati Reds.

Even though the Red Sox have the highest strikeout rate (28.1%) against southpaws, Abbott is in just the 10th percentile in chase rate (23.5%), 11th percentile in whiff rate (19.6%), and 25th percentile in strikeout rate (18.3%). Boston also has a handful of capable right-handed hitters who can take advantage of Abbott, including Tyler O'Neill.

O'Neill is raking versus lefties this season, producing an impressive .505 wOBA, 228 wRC+, and .418 ISO in that split. In his last seven games, O'Neill has registered an RBI in five of them, and he's totaled eight RBIs in that span.

Given his power metrics versus lefties, it's worth noting that O'Neill has +285 odds to hit a home run on Friday.

While Ceddanne Rafaela has consistently hit at the bottom of the order for the Red Sox, he's supplied valuable production. Rafaela is tallying a .354 wOBA, 124 wRC+, and .203 ISO when facing left-handed pitching this year.

Additionally, Rafaela has scored a run in six of his last nine contests, totaling seven runs in that frame.

Los Angeles Angels at Los Angeles Dodgers

Patrick Sandoval Under 5.5 Strikeouts (-172)
Andy Pages to Record an RBI (+145)

Combined Odds: +244

Not having Mookie Betts in the lineup does make the Los Angeles Dodgers a less-imposing team that is more susceptible to strikeouts. That being said, Patrick Sandoval could have a tough time racking up Ks versus the Dodgers on Friday.

Sandoval is slated to make his 16th start of the campaign for the Los Angeles Angels, ranking in the 39th percentile in chase rate (27.2%) and producing a career-worst 11.7% swinging strike rate. On top of that, Sandoval is in the 31st percentile in walk rate while the Dodgers own the ninth-highest walk rate (9.1%) versus left-handed pitchers.

Besides Sandoval reaching six-plus Ks in only two of his last seven starts, the Dodgers are posting the best wOBA (.355), wRC+ (133), ISO (.194), and fifth-lowest strikeout rate (18.4%) against lefties. Walks and the fact he's given up six homers in his last six starts makes it tough to believe he'll pitch long enough in Friday's game to achieve six-plus strikeouts.

Among the right-handed bats that can excel versus Sandoval, Andy Pages is one who has been turning a corner in recent outings. Pages is logging a .409 wOBA, 170 wRC+, and .185 ISO when facing left-handed pitchers, and he's moved up to No. 5 in the order since Betts has been sidelined.

Hitting higher in the lineup has helped Pages record an RBI in two of his last three appearances. Ahead of Friday's clash between the Los Angeles teams, Pages is holding +500 odds to hit a home run.
