We have put together a 4-pick cross-sport parlay that will take you right through Friday night including action from the MLB, MLS, EPL and College Football.

One pick is taken from each sport and a winning ticket gives us a nice payout with odds at +905 with DraftKings; that’s more than 9/1! Let’s break down each of these plays.

EPL: Leeds United vs Newcastle – Over 2.5 goals (-150), 3pm ET

Leeds have faced tough tasks against Manchester United and Liverpool, but they conceded 8 goals in those games and also failed to beat Burnley or Everton. Pascal Struijk’s red card didn’t help Marcelo Bielsa’s men last time out against Liverpool, but they were already losing 2-0 at that point and it has to be a concern that Leeds has allowed 11 EPL goals already this season.

Newcastle is also winless and the Magpies have also been giving up too many goals. They have conceded 12 in their opening 4 games against West Ham, Aston Villa, Southampton, and Manchester United. They have managed 5 strikes at the other end and this game should develop into a high-scoring contest. There were 10 goals in the 2 games between these teams last season and backing over 2.5 goals at St James’ Park on Friday looks a solid play.

MLS: New York Red Bulls +0.5 (-145) vs Inter Miami CF, 7pm ET

The New York Red Bulls most likely won’t be playing past the first week of November, save for an unexpected hot streak at the end of the year. But while their position in the standings separates them from the playoff chase by a larger margin than they’d like, it’s not a great indicator of how they’ve actually played this year – New York’s goal differential of -3 is actually 4 goals better than that of their opponents, despite having 9 fewer points on the year. They don’t score much, but they’re a gritty team who can hold any opponent to a goal or less. It’s entirely possible for them to keep Miami to a low-scoring draw or even surprise them with a 1-0 victory, so double your chances and take a tie or a New York win.

MLB: Colorado Rockies ML (-115) vs Washington Nationals, 7:05pm ET

The Rockies opened as the underdogs in this game, which is a little surprising considering they have their best pitcher on the mound and they face a rookie pitcher who has allowed 17 runs in his last 3 starts. German Marquez gets the start for Colorado and in 167 innings this season he has a 3.93 ERA with a 1.20 WHIP and has developed into the ace of the Rockies pitching staff. He’s coming off a dominant start in Philadelphia in which he did not allow a run in 6 innings with only 6 hits and 1 walk and the Phillies have a much stronger offense than the Nationals right now. Take the underdogs and back Colorado by the money line.

College Football: Maryland Terrapins -7 (-110) vs Illinois Fighting Illini, 9pm ET

There’s a crazy amount of value on the line in this one. Maryland has looked phenomenal up to this point and if Taulia Tagovailoa can even play half as well as he has been, the Terrapins should roll. Illinois looked to be off to a decent start after defeating Nebraska 3 weeks ago, but it appears that says more about Nebraska than it does Illinois. The Illini have now lost back-to-back games, including one to a non Power-5 school. The Illini are now 1-5 ATS in their last 6 contests and 2-5 in their last 7 at home. Back the Terrapins in this one and do so with confidence.
