We have reached the final two weeks of the MLB season, and there are still some big games that have to be played. There are just four games scheduled for September 26, and that can make it a bit hard to do some MLB betting.
Here are two of the best MLB matchups to look at when making a MLB parlay today.
Atlanta Braves vs. Washington Nationals
When you are making MLB betting picks, you don’t always just want to look for the best potential matchups.
You also want to look for games that can be a mismatch, and that is the case with the game between the Atlanta Braves and Washington Nationals.
NL East Division
Atlanta is trying to catch the New York Mets at the top of the NL East Division, and they have been on a tear of late. Washington hasn’t been playing meaningful games for weeks, and they are limping into the season finale.
The Atlanta Braves come into this game with a record of 95-58, and they have been on an absolute tear since the beginning of July. Atlanta is hitting .254 as a team in 2022, and they have also belted 227 home runs.
The starting pitching for the Braves has also been getting better as the year has moved on, but they won’t have one of their best on the mound in this game. Bryce Elder comes into this one with a record of 1-3 to go along with an ERA of 3.38.
The Washington Nationals were not going to be a playoff team this season, and that was especially true after the Trade Deadline.
Washington is just 53-99 on the year, and they have really struggled to find any offense since trading away some top talent.
Cory Abbott will start for Washington on Monday night, and he is 0-3 with a 4.85 ERA on the year. Abbott is going to have a tough time dealing with the Braves lineup as they have really started to turn things on.
MLB Pick: Braves -1.5 (-140)
New York Yankees vs. Toronto Blue Jays
AL East Rivals
AL East rivals meet up in Toronto on Monday night, and this game should be included when making a MLB parlay today. The Toronto Blue Jays host the New York Yankees, and both teams will be in the postseason.
New York comes into this game with a record of 94-58, and they have taken control of the AL East Division. Toronto is in a good spot in the Wild Card race with a record of 86-67.
The MLB odds for this game have the Toronto Blue Jays as the moneyline betting favorites at -125.
New York Yankees
The MLB team stats for the New York Yankees continue to be impressive when looking at what they are able to do at the plate. New York has belted 241 home runs this season, and they sport a team batting average of .241.
Aaron Judge leads the way with:
- 60 home runs
- 128 RBIs
- .314 batting average
New York just completed a sweep of the Boston Red Sox at home, and they are building up momentum.
Who Is Taking the Mound for the Yankees?
Luis Severino is on the mound in this game, and he is 6-3 with a 3.36 ERA on the year. Severino will have to keep the ball in the ballpark against a powerful Blue Jays team.
Toronto Blue Jays
The Toronto Blue Jays come into this game, having won two straight games on the road in Tampa bay. Toronto has been on a tear in their home ballpark of late, and they have improved to 86-67 on the year.
Vladimir Guerrero Jr. comes into this game with 30 home runs, and Bo Bichette leads the way with 91 RBIs. Toronto has the ability to take over a game with their offense when they are swinging the bats well.
Who Is Taking the Mound for the Blue Jays?
Kevin Gausman is making the start for the Blue Jays on Monday night, and he is 12-10 with a 3.32 ERA on the year. The Blue Jays will do their best to keep Aaron Judge and the mighty Yankees lineup in the ballpark.
MLB Pick: Blue Jays (-125)
MLB Parlay Pick
There are only four total games to choose from when putting together an MLB parlay today, but you can still find two good options.
Atlanta should have no trouble with the Washington Nationals, and the Blue Jays will make a statement against the New York Yankees.
