We’ve put together a four-pick cross-sport parlay that will take you right through the night, including action from the NBA Playoffs, MLB and the Euro 2020 tournament.
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 +1371 with BetMGM — that’s nearly 13/1! Let’s break down each of these four plays. Remember to gamble responsibly.
Best Euro 2020 pick: Italy ML and Under 2.5 Goals (+190) vs. Turkey, 3:00 pm ET
The Italians were one of only two sides to win every game in qualifying for Euro 2020, part of a near three-year undefeated streak that could end with them setting a new national record should they reach 30 games.
Turkey conceded just three goals in qualifying, impressively shutting out the French at home, and could limit an Italian team not packed with goal scorers. As is tradition, Italy’s strength is in defense and they head into Euro 2020 having not conceded in eight games, suggesting a low-scoring affair with the Turks is on the cards.

Best MLB pick: Houston Astros ML (-165) vs. Minnesota Twins, 8:10 pm ET
The Astros have suffered plenty of injuries to their own pitching staff, but the new, younger pitchers they’ve relied on have stepped up and been able to get the job done. Jose Urquidy pitched tremendously in May, going 3-0 with a 1.14 ERA in his four starts, including against top offenses like Toronto and Boston. Given the struggles of the Twins, we like for the Astros and Urquidy to win here pretty easily.
Best MLB pick: Los Angeles Angels ML (-145) vs. Arizona Diamondbacks, 9:40 pm ET
The Diamondbacks have lost seven games in a row, as well as 21 of their last 23. They scored just two total runs in their three-game series against the Athletics, and the offense is hitting just .153 with a .454 OPS over the last seven days—both of which are the lowest marks in the majors. With their bats heating up and Shohei Ohtani on the mound, we will be backing the Angels.
Best NBA pick: Phoenix Suns vs. Denver Nuggets Over 222.5 (-115), 10:05 pm ET
We know Phoenix is a sound defensive team but the Nuggets are also just missing a lot. We are expecting Denver to feel a little more comfortable and shoot better at home. Phoenix’s offense might dip a little on the road, but not dramatically as they can play with lots of confidence and patience given their positioning in the series. Look for the highest-scoring game we have seen in the series so far.
