Matthew has been with Pickswise for a while now, covering a wide variety of sports. His main passions are college football and UFC, and those are the sports he has covered the most. Matthew uses a variety of methods to handicap games, including stats, trends, injuries, and situational factors. His goal is to consistently give out winners and will put in the research to try and achieve this.

We’ve put together a four-pick cross-sport parlay that will take you right through Friday, including action from the Stanley Cup Finals, Euro 2020, and the MLB.

One pick is taken from each sport with a second pick from the MLB. A winning ticket gives us a nice payout with odds at +1725 with BetMGM — that’s more than 17/1! Let’s break down each of these four plays. Remember to gamble responsibly.

Best Euro 2020 Pick: Italy to advance (-150) vs. Belgium, 3:00 pm ET

While Romelu Lukaku has done a great job leading from the front, it can’t be understated how important Kevin De Bruyne has been to Belgium’s progression, and if he misses this game then the Red Devils face an uphill climb to reach the semi-finals. De Bruyne is a doubt with an ankle injury, while Eden Hazard, who started to look back to his best against Portugal, is almost certainly unavailable due to a hamstring strain. Without De Bruyne and Hazard’s ability to retain possession, Belgium could be overwhelmed by the pressing game of Italy.

Because we are using Italy in a parlay and because we have already seen plenty of knockout stage games go to extra time, back the Italians to advance rather than win in 90 minutes.

Best MLB pick: Los Angeles Dodgers vs. Washington Nationals ML (-105), 7:05 pm ET

It’s not just Max Scherzer who’s been unstoppable as of late. The Nationals surged through June, relying on the red-hot Kyle Schwarber and his historic home run stretch and finishing the month 14-3 in their final 17 games, inching to within two games of first place.

The Dodgers, on the other hand, have plenty of off-field issues you’re surely aware of if you’ve been on ESPN or social media this week, and while it may not overtly seem this way, that’s sure to affect the locker room dynamics, which could contribute to on-field play. Julio Urias has been a clear number four in their rotation this year – his 9-3 record is a result of not being matched up against a Scherzer in most of his starts, and his 3.95 ERA is an indication of the pitcher he is – good, but not great. We like the red-hot Nationals at home with Max on the mound to nearly double your money.

Best MLB pick: Miami Marlins vs. Atlanta Braves Under 9 Runs (-115), 7:20 pm ET

The Marlins are going under 57 percent of the time, and that stat holds both at home and on the road. We are liking Thompson to once again keep the Atlanta offense in check, so as long as Drew Smyly is not too much of a disaster this one could easily finish under six runs–let alone the nine we are getting. There is a lot of cushion in this number which might have been drawn up by some recent strong games by Miami. We will be backing the under.

Best NHL pick: Tampa Bay Lightning -1.5 (+200) vs. Montreal Canadiens, 8:00 pm ET

The Tampa Bay Lightning are holding a 2-0 series lead against the Montreal Canadiens as they head to Canada for the first time in 16 months. The Lightning have looked fantastic for the entire postseason; they’re on a mission to repeat as the Stanley Cup champions, something that has only happened once in the last 20 years. Despite getting outplayed in Game 2, the Lightning pulled off a massive 3-1 win and have now outscored the Habs 8-2 over two games. Tampa’s offense should continue to roll for Game 3, they’ve done an incredible job scoring on Carey Price over their last two games.
