The All-Star Game is almost upon us, which means that the first half of the MLB Season in winding to a close. For some teams, the break cannot come soon enough, while others are on a roll that would see them prefer to keep playing as opposed to having their momentum stalled. The races in most of the divisions are all still pretty close, and we have some big series set to go this weekend that could change things quite dramatically. We are going to take a look at the games on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday to see if we can put together some winning MLB Parlay tickets, so let’s get right to it.

MLB Parlay for Friday – Indians, Astros, Red Sox
The Cleveland Indians are winners of 4 straight and have now opened up what looks to be an unassailable lead in the Central Division. They will be home to the Oakland A’s on Friday night, and while Oakland are a very solid 8-2 in their last 10, I think they ate on to a bit of a beating in this one.
The champions are cruising right along and looking to create a little more separation between themselves and the Seattle Mariners in the West. They will have the perfect opportunity to do just that with a weekend series against the Chicago White Sox coming up. This one smells like a sweep, so let’s take the Astros on Friday.
The Boston Red Sox are winners of 8 of their last 10 games and are on a real roll heading into the second half of the season. They have what looks to be a very winnable series against the awful Kansas City Royals this weekend. This pick looks like a no-brainer.
MLB Parlay for Saturday – Twins, Cubs, Phillies
The Baltimore Orioles are officially the worst team in baseball with just 24 wins on the season. That includes just 12 road wins, and while the Twins are just 2-8 in their last 10 games, they should still be good enough to take care of the Orioles on Saturday.
The Chicago Cubs are coming into the weekend on a 6-game winning streak and have a legitimate shot at extending that with a series against the Cincinnati Reds, the team in the cellar of the Central. Look for the Cubs to notch another win on Saturday.
The Phillies are suddenly hot again as they look to run down the Atlanta Braves in the NL East. The Phillies have a losing record on the road, but have Jake Arrieta on the mound on Saturday, and are up against a Pirates team with just 4 wins in their last 10.
MLB Parlay for Sunday – Yankees, Braves, Diamondbacks
The New York Yankees are continuing to keep pace with the Boston Red Sox at the top of the AL East, very often at the expense of their division rivals. Look for more of the same on Sunday, as I expect the Yankees to topple the Blue Jays.
The Braves are in a tough series with the Brewers this weekend and look like a team ready for the break to arrive. They already lost a game in this series, but I like them to win on Sunday with Sean Newcomb on the mound.
The Diamondbacks have allowed the Dodgers to catch up with them, passing a big lead in the process. They are still in the division hunt, though, and have a winnable series against the Padres this weekend. I like the D-Backs on Sunday with Zack Greinke set to start.
