MLB odds, picks, lines, predictions, schedule, best bets for May 5: This three-way parlay pays over 9-1
SportsLine's top experts have released their best MLB parlay for today
Every team is in action on a busy MLB schedule on Sunday, May 5, which includes several intriguing pitching matchups as Zack Greinke and the Arizona Diamondbacks take on German Marquez and the Colorado Rockies (-133) at Coors Field, Justin Verlander and the Houston Astros (-200) face Matt Harvey and the Los Angeles Angels in Orange County, and ends with a prime-time matchup of Adam Wainwright and the St. Louis Cardinals against Jose Quintana and the rival Chicago Cubs (-135) at Wrigley. Fans everywhere will be playing off MLB odds for these games, but before locking in any MLB picks of your own, you need to see what SportsLine data scientist Stephen Oh is saying about the action.
The renowned co-founder of Accuscore, Oh uses a data-driven approach to crush sportsbooks. He raked in more than $1,100 to $100 bettors tailing his MLB picks in 2018 and he's off to a blazing start this year, riding an awesome 38-22 heater into Sunday's action. That's brought in more than $1,500 already to $100 bettors tailing him.
The key to the success: Oh's projection model simulates each game 10,000 times, identifying critical trends and matchups he expects will make the difference -- and he shares the results exclusively at SportsLine. Parlaying Sunday's three picks pays out at more than 9-1.
Zach Davies (3-0, 1.38 ERA) is a big reason why Oh likes Milwaukee. He hasn't allowed more than two runs in any of his six starts. Meanwhile, Mets starter Jason Vargas (1-1, 5.75) has been a model of inconsistency, lasting more than five innings just once and as little as one-third of an inning in another. Three of his five starts he was out before five innings thrown. Opponents are hitting .280 against him on the season.
"Davies has been amazing for the Brewers, and Milwaukee is 4-2 in his starts," Oh told SportsLine. "The Brewers have won two-thirds of their home starts when favored, and they win two-thirds of my computer simulations."
Lock in the Brewers to win on Sunday, and you could be well on your way to a massive parlay payout.
Oh and his computer model have also found a key x-factor that has him all over a massive underdog Sunday. This team offers major value on the money line and pushes the parlay to new heights. You can only see which underdog he's backing hard at SportsLine.
So which MLB picks should you make on Sunday for a 9-1 payout? And which massive underdog is showing all the value? See Sunday's MLB schedule and odds below, then visit SportsLine to get Sunday's MLB best bets, all from the SportsLine handicapper who is crushing his MLB picks this season.
