Four-pick cross-sport parlay for Monday, May 24 (+1442 odds): NHL, NBA, and MLB picks
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 MLB. A winning ticket gives us a nice payout with odds at +1442 with BetMGM — that’s 14/1! Let’s break down each of these four plays. Remember to gamble responsibly.
Best MLB pick: Colorado Rockies ML (+115) vs. New York Mets, 7:10pm ET
The New York Mets enter today’s contest against the Colorado Rockies finally feeling the devastating impact of the numerous injuries to their roster. Not counting extra innings, the Mets are averaging 2.43 runs per game over their last seven games, despite facing some very hittable pitchers.
Austin Gomber will be opposed by David Peterson, who has made it past the fifth inning only three times in eight starts in 2021. He has been abused by teams who hit left-handed pitching well, an unfortunate fact for Mets fans tonight considering that Colorado has the fourth-best OPS against lefties this season. Because of the success the Rockies have had against lefties, we will be backing them to win.
Best MLB pick: Cleveland Indians ML (+105) vs. Detroit Tigers, 7:10pm ET
Spencer Turnbull pitched a no-hitter for the Tigers in his last start, but has disastrous numbers against the Indians. He has an 0-6 record against Cleveland with an ERA over 5.00 for his career.
Sam Hentges will make the start for Cleveland and has made just two career starts. The Angels hit him hard his last time out, doubling his ERA to over 6.00 in the process. However, Hentges will be unfamiliar to the Tigers, which we believe could be the difference and Cleveland has become used to beating up Turnbull, who is going to be overvalued. For that reason, we will be backing the Indians.
Best NBA pick: Miami Heat vs. Milwaukee Bucks -4.5 (-110), 7:35pm ET
The Bucks managed to win the opener despite the fact that Giannis Antetokounmpo had a terrible game and shot 0-13 from outside the restricted zone. Antetokounmpo surely isn’t going to shoot 37 percent from the field in back-to-back games.
Miami on the other hand, shot 20-50 (40 percent) from beyond the arc, while Milwaukee shot 5/31 (16.1 percent). The fact that the Bucks still won suggests we should see a much more comfortable victory in Game 2.
Best NHL pick: Tampa Bay Lightning vs. Florida Panthers Over 5.5 Goals (-120), 8:08pm ET
Both teams have been absolutely dynamite on the power-play with each team picking up another two goals with the man advantage on Saturday. The physicality of the series has led to both sides getting plenty of power-play opportunities and they have really taken advantage. In three of the four games the teams have combined for four power-play goals. Take the over in this one as both teams have shown no signs of slowing down offensively.
