Article offers an argument in favor of backing three teams for Monday, May 9th as part of a Major League Baseball parlay.

There’s plenty of Major League Baseball action going on Monday including games with some of the stronger teams in the National League. The New York Mets and the Chicago Cubs are both division leaders while the Washington Nationals are currently a second-placed team. Each one of those teams will be in action on Monday and they each look strong for wins.
Using BetVictor’s odds, the Nationals are -200 (1/2) to beat the Detroit Tigers on the moneyline. The Nats certainly enter the game cold but their four recent losses were all to the Cubs in games from Wrigley Field. Four losses is not really excusable to anyone for a World Series contender, but the Nats still look better than Detroit, a team that have gone winless in their last six. The Nats have Stephen Strasburg as the probable starter Monday, making them all the more stronger of a pick to take.
In another game, the Mets will be on the road against the Los Angeles Dodgers. New York is a pretty good road team at 10-5 on the year as visitors. Looking at the other half of the equation the home-and-away splits favor the Mets. The Dodgers enter Monday at just 5-8 at home, two paired stats that make -118 (about 5/6) look pretty good with BetVictor’s odds on the Mets straight-up.
The Chicago Cubs are the last team you should add to a three-event parlay. They are playing .800 baseball on the year so far, a winning percentage that is absolutely incredible. With Lester on the mound, Chicago host the Padres a team that are just 5-8 on the road. It could be an ugly one for San Diego and I could put the Cubs as short as -425 in the game, making -275 (4/11) look pretty good.
The three odds used to make a treble offers potential returns of 37.85 units on a 10-unit wager. For longer odds you’ll have to use spread betting with the Nats at -1.5 (21/10) and Chicago at -1.5 (5/6). Those two events on a double offer about the same odds as the treble above.
2-pt bet on a treble with BetVictor using the Nationals, the Mets, and the Cubs to win straight up in May 9th Major League Baseball games.
