MLB Vegas odds, picks, lines, predictions, best bets for May 11: This three-way parlay pays 8-1
Adam Thompson has a 3-way parlay that could pay off huge on Thursday
Every MLB team is in action Friday as the weekend begins with a huge 15-game slate that is already drawing heavy betting action. But before you get down on any game Friday, you need to see what Mike McClure is picking. A predictive data engineer with over $1 million in DFS winnings, McClure launched the wOBA Projection Model for MLB picks in 2016. The acronym stands for weighted on-base average -- an advanced stat that measures each player's overall offensive contributions per plate appearance.
And it's a very accurate indicator: McClure's wOBA Model has returned more than $3,000 to $100 bettors the last two seasons. McClure is on a hot stretch right now too, hitting on nine of his last 12 MLB picks.
Now McClure has analyzed every Friday game and his three best bets are locked in at SportsLine. Parlaying all three would bring in a haul of nearly 8-1.
We can tell you McClure is all over the Rays getting their series at Baltimore started right with a win despite being an underdog (+114, or bet $100 to win $114).
Tampa comes in having lost three straight, scoring just three runs in that span. The Rays are batting .259, which ranks fifth in the American League, and yet rank third-to-last in scoring (13th, 4.2 runs per game).
But that's still better than the Orioles, who are dead-last in average (.231) and average only 3.7 runs per game.
McClure notes in his selection that playing at hitter-friendly Camden Yards will benefit Tampa even more than the home team. That's a big reason why he's backing the Rays.
McClure is also loving a favorite most bettors are overlooking as well as a substantial underdog that would return a sweet payday.
So what three-way parlay do you need to jump on? Visit SportsLine now to get Mike McClure's wOBA Model best bets for Friday, all from a predictive data engineer on a 9-3 MLB streak who's up $3,000 the last two seasons.
