Four-pick cross-sport parlay for Monday, June 7 (+1080): NHL, NBA and MLB picks
A big Monday of sports is expected, which means it is time to have some fun and look for some of the best bets across all the different sports and pile them into one parlay. We’ve put together a four-pick cross-sport parlay which will take you right through the night, including action from the NHL, NBA, and MLB.
Each pick is taken from a different sport with a second pick from the NBA. A winning ticket gives us a nice payout with odds at +1080 with BetMGM — that’s 10/1! Let’s break down each of these four plays. Remember to gamble responsibly.
Best NBA pick: Milwaukee Bucks ML (+105) vs. Brooklyn Nets, 7:35pm ET
Milwaukee simply cannot afford to go 2-0 down against Brooklyn, which would mean they would have to win four of the next five games. Their shots didn’t fall in Game 1 and coach Mike Budenholzer can be expected to make adjustments for tonight, while Khris Middleton should have a far better game than he did on Saturday. With James Harden ruled out for Game 2, we will be backing the Bucks on the money line tonight.
Best NHL pick: Winnipeg Jets vs. Montreal Canadiens ML (-155), 8:08pm ET
The Montreal Canadiens topped the Winnipeg Jets 5-1 on Sunday night to give themselves a 3-0 lead in the series. Neither team will have much time to reset for Game 4, which is set for Monday in a rare back-to-back playoff situation. The Canadiens are probably happy to get right back on the ice as soon as possible, as they ride a six-game winning streak into this one. On top of the winning streak, they have not fallen behind a single time in six straight games. Montreal is playing with full confidence and should be able to send Winnipeg home for the summer. Look for the Habs to complete the sweep and close out the series in front of their home fans.
Best NBA Pick: Denver Nuggets +5 (-110) vs. Phoenix Suns, 10:05pm ET
During the regular season, these teams played each other about as closely as you can get. Denver won twice in Phoenix, both in overtime and Phoenix won in Denver by three points. All of those games were in January though, and since then the Nuggets have lost some key contributors in Jamal Murray and Will Barton. Like most Denver games, this one will come down to their opponents’ ability to limit Nikola Jokic. He has been awesome in the playoffs, covering their lack of depth. He can shine in what could also be a let-down spot for Phoenix after beating the Lakers amidst all that drama. We like Denver and the points tonight.
Best MLB pick: Chicago Cubs vs. San Diego Padres ML (-120), 10:10pm ET
For the Padres, lefty Ryan Weathers has looked good this season. Plus, pitching at home could make the difference. In four home starts he has given up just four runs combined. So, while they might not have scored much the last couple of games, it was expected given the fact that that they were facing Jacob deGrom and Marcus Stroman. Weathers makes them look nice value as they bid to avenge last week’s sweep in Chicago. For that reason, we like the Padres in this spot at Petco Park.
