We’ve put together a four-pick cross-sport parlay that will take you right through Friday, including action from the NBA Playoffs, NHL Playoffs, MLB and the Euro 2020 soccer tournament.

One pick is taken from each sport and a winning ticket gives us a nice payout with odds at +1082 with BetMGM — that’s more than 10/1! Let’s break down each of these four plays. Remember to gamble responsibly.

Best Euro 2020 pick: Scotland vs. England under 2.5 goals (-110), 3pm ET

England started Euro 2020 by taking a huge three points against Croatia at Wembley Stadium but it could take time for head coach Gareth Southgate to work out his best team and they are unlikely to blow apart Scotland. The Three Lions prevailed 1-0 in their opener but managed only two shots on target in that game and with a win already in the bag, there is no need for them to throw everything at their second match with the Scots.

Scotland will be extremely cautious of over-committing players in offense given England’s pace on the counter and also showed a lack of offensive quality when failing to score from 19 shots against Czech Republic. Three of the Scots’ last five games have produced under 2.5 goals and that could be the case again in the big all-British showdown at Wembley.

Best NBA pick: Philadelphia 76ers vs. Atlanta Hawks ML (+125), 7:30 pm ET

Coming off Wednesday’s disaster and with Joel Embiid less than 100 percent, it’s hard to see the Sixers recovering. They are getting next to nothing from anyone other than Embiid and Seth Curry, so it’s difficult for them to survive their star big man going through rough patches. Danny Green is out and Ben Simmons has been a disaster on the offensive end of the floor. Simmons is an absurd 12-for-39 from the free-throw line during this series. The Hawks will have all the confidence heading back home, so backing them to close out the series will be our play.

Best NHL pick: Vegas Golden Knights ML (-170) vs. Montreal Canadiens, 8:08pm ET

The Knights arguably outplayed the Habs in Game 2, they just didn’t get the result they needed. They outshot the Canadiens 31-23, including a third period in which they outshot Montreal 17-7. Admittedly, Carey Price has looked great for the Canadiens but Vegas has more offensive weapons, depth and the better coaching staff.

Vegas will be disappointed with the Game 2 loss, but after a day of rest and the chance to review the video, expect the Knights to come out in Game 3 with some of their best efforts. Following a loss in this postseason the Knights have won three of five games and they have lost back-to-back games only twice in 15 games played. Take Vegas on the money line.

Best MLB pick: Philadelphia Phillies vs. San Francisco Giants ML (-140), 9:45pm ET

The Giants’ offense is better than the Phillies’ by almost every conceivable offensive metric. San Francisco also has the better starting pitcher and a slightly better bullpen in this matchup. Expect the Giants to dominate in all facets of the game as they continue to build on their impressive start to the season.
