Thursday MLB Betting Parlay – Nationals vs. Brewers Mets vs. Diamondbacks

MLB Betting Previews- Thursday, July 26 Parlay

As the month of July winds-down, the MLB divisional races continue to heat up as every contending teams knows just how important each win from here on in can be.

We crunched the numbers on all the statistics and betting trends for the pitching matchups on Thursday’s schedule of games and have uncovered a two-team parlay that promises to end your week on a profitable note.

Game 1- Washington Nationals vs. Milwaukee Brewers
Money Line: Washington -115 Milwaukee +105
Total Line: 7.5

Matchup | Preview

Washington continues to roll in the NL East and will send Edwin Jackson to the mound in Game 1 of this series. The right-hander held Atlanta to just one earned run on five hits in seven innings his last time out and still got tagged with the loss. Overall, he is 5-6 with a 3.73 ERA in 18 starts. Jackson is 2-2 against the Brewers with an ERA of 4.22.

Yovani Gallardo is expected to be on the mound for Milwaukee. He got bounced around in his last start; giving-up four earned runs on nine hits after allowing a total of four earned runs in his previous four starts. The right-hander is 8-7 on the year with an ERA of 3.72. He is 3-1 against the Nationals with a 3.90 ERA.

The Nationals are 5-2 in their last seven road games, but 6-21 in their last 27 games in Milwaukee. The Brewers are 10-4 in Gallardo’s last 14 starts against the NL East and 6-2 in his last eight starts overall. Stick with Milwaukee to grab the early lead in this series while securing the front-end of this parlay with a win.

Game 2- New York Mets vs. Arizona Diamondbacks
Money Line: New York +130 Arizona -145
Total Line: 8

Matchup | Preview 

New York will look to curtail a complete free-fall from the playoff race with Matt Harvey on the mound this Thursday night. The 23-year old right-hander will be making his Major League debut after spending most of the year pitching in Triple-A Buffalo. The former first-round pick of the Mets in 2010 is 7-5 with a 2.68 ERA this season in 20 starts.

Arizona will counter with Wade Miley as its starter for this game. The left-hander is 11-5 this season with a 3.02 ERA in 16 previous starts. He has not given-up more than one earned run in five of his last eight starts and has gone seven or more innings in six of his last 10 outings.

The Mets are 3-13 in their last 16 games heading into Wednesday’s series finale against Washington. The Diamondbacks are 16-6 in Miley’s last 22 starts and 5-1 in his last six starts at home. This matchup does not look good for New York’s chances to break a six-game losing streak in Arizona, so stick with the Diamondbacks to wrap-up the back-end of this parlay with a seventh-straight win over the Mets at home.
