MLB Same Game Parlay Bets for Friday 6/28/24

New York Yankees at Toronto Blue Jays

Over 1st Inning 0.5 Runs (-113)
Marcus Stroman Under 3.5 Strikeouts (+102)
Gleyber Torres to Record a Hit (-185)

Combined Odds: +380

Our Same Game Parlay for the New York Yankees against the Toronto Blue Jays starts with the over/under in the first inning. Toronto got off to a blistering start in Game 1 of this four game series, recording five runs in the first inning.

However, this goes against the Blue Jays' usual first inning production as they have the second-lowest YRFI in MLB (15.00%). Plus, they will be facing Marcus Stroman, who has given up a first inning run in only one of his last six starts.

Toronto already has the ninth-lowest batting average paired with the fourth-fewest runs scored. However, they have some hope for more first inning runs.

The Jays are among the top half of runs above average when facing sinkers and cutters -- which are Stroman's most-used pitches. Additionally, the Yanks' hurler leans on a high ground ball percentage of 50.9% (84th percentile), but Toronto has the 7th-lowest ground ball rate.

New York's chances of coming out of the gates with a run also looks promising. Yusei Kikuchi has given up first inning runs in back-to-back starts and in three of his previous five.

Power hitting has been a thorn in his side with Kikuchi in the bottom 16% of hard hit percentage. Where do the Yankees excel? At sending the ball over the fence with the third-highest isolated power (ISO) and second-most home runs per game. Keep in mind that New York has the second-highest YRFI rate, as well.

Along with at least one run in the first, Stroman's strikeout under is worth targeting. As previously mentioned, the Blue Jays hit well against his most-used pitches. Toronto has the league's fourth-lowest strikeout percentage (K%), and Stroman has been under 3.5 Ks in four of his previous five appearances.

To round out this parlay, Gleyber Torres seems poised for a hit. It's been a rough season for the 27-year-old infielder with a .215 batting average -- far below his previous career-low of .243. However, the -185 odds are worth a shot with Torres logging a hit in 10 of 26 career at-bats when facing Kikuchi. That's a .385 batting average; count me in.

San Diego Padres at Boston Red Sox

Nick Pivetta Under 4.5 Strikeouts (-106)
Rafael Devers to Record an RBI (-110)
Boston Red Sox Over 4.5 Runs (-142)

Combined Odds: +386

Let's put together another three-leg parlay featuring another team hailing from the American League East. This time we're highlighting the Boston Red Sox, who will battle the San Diego Padres on Friday night.

Nick Pivetta is taking the mound for the Sox. After reaching at least eight strikeouts in five of his first eight starts this season, Pivetta is averaging only 4.3 Ks each contest over his previous three appearances.

Meanwhile, the Padres hold the second-lowest K% in baseball. Plus, they are among the top half of runs above average against each of Pivetta's top strikeout rate pitches -- four-seam fastballs and sweepers. Give me under 4.5 strikeouts for Pivetta.

Boston's batting order also holds good value against Randy Vasquez. The Padres' hurler is rocking a 5.10 ERA and a 4.70 skill-interactive ERA (SIERA). He's been all over the place in June. For example, Vasquez gave up 12 hits and 6 runs on June 17th followed by no runs surrendered in five innings on June 22nd. Vasquez has been a bit of a wild card, but the Red Sox have the bats to make him pay.

First off, Vasquez's most-used pitches are his fastball and curveball. Boston is in the top 10 of runs above average versus each pitch. During June, Vasquez has given up six home runs over five starts. This is yet another check for the Sox finding success, for they have the seventh-highest slugging percentage (SLG) and fifth-highest isolated power (ISO).

Along with Boston going over 4.5 runs, Rafael Devers is poised to knock in another run. He leads the team with 42 RBIs and has 4 ribbies over his last four. We have a small sample size of two career at-bats for Devers facing Vasquez. The veteran third baseman has fared well with one hit, which was a bomb in the stands.

Per usual, Devers is swinging for the fences, ranking in the 92nd percentile or better of barrel percentage and hard-hit rate. Another ribby looks likely, and Devers' +340 line to hit a home run is another prop to sniff, too.
