OddsShopper’s Parlay Builder continues to dominate as the ultimate tool for creating profitable parlays. Last week we went 3-for-6 on our parlays, setting the stage for a successful month; the remarkable effectiveness of our market-based tools and strategy cannot be emphasized enough. Now let’s create yet another victorious multi-sport parlay on FanDuel, combining NBA and MLB props.
Best Parlay for Today, May 22 | FanDuel
Zack Wheeler Over 6.5 Strikeouts (-108)
Wheeler has been in excellent form, boasting an impressive 28-to-6 strikeout-to-walk ratio. He faces the Arizona Diamondbacks, a team that offers opportunities for strikeouts with players like Pavin Smith and Josh Rojas, and Wheeler should have a significant advantage in this matchup. The over has a 55% chance of hitting and favorable odds, so betting on Wheeler to get at least seven strikeouts is a good start to the parlay.
Gavin Stone Under 3.5 Strikeouts (+100)
Stone faces a tough matchup against the Braves. Atlanta’s lineup is known for its power-hitting capabilities, which will pose challenges for Stone. Considering the situation, it seems unlikely that Stone will accumulate many strikeouts in this game. While this play adds a neutral leg to the parlay (52% expected win rate, 2% expected ROI), it strongly increases the value of the parlay given the circumstances of the game and the plus-money odds. By betting on Stone to fall under 3.5 strikeouts, we take advantage of the unfavorable conditions he faces.
LeBron James Under 8.5 Assists (-104)
James has been heavily involved in playmaking for the Los Angeles Lakers. However, the overreliance on him to score may result in fewer assists in this game. Although James has surpassed 8.5 assists in each of the previous three games against the Nuggets, the market has adjusted accordingly. This presents an opportunity to capitalize on the gap on the under. Unders are uncomfortable, but the market-based approach favors it here.
