We have put together a 4-pick cross-sport parlay that will take you right through Saturday, including action from the MLS and MLB. Two picks are taken from each sport, and a winning ticket would give us a nice payout with odds of +1150 at DraftKings. Let’s break down each of these plays.

MLB: Los Angeles Angels ML (-105) vs Chicago White Sox, 4:00 pm ET

The Angels extended their winning streak to 6 games with a win in the series opener against the White Sox on Friday night. LA not only took down Chicago’s ace in Lucas Giolito, but their bullpen posted an impressive performance giving up only 1 run over the entire game after starter Noah Syndergaard was scratched due to illness before the first pitch. Simply put, the Angels are thriving in every aspect of the game and they don’t seem likely to be slowing down anytime soon. For that reason, take the red-hot Angels to continue their winning ways against Vince Velasquez and the demoralized White Sox on Saturday afternoon.

MLS: Atlanta United vs CF Montreal – Both teams to score – Yes (-160), 4:00 pm ET

Head-to-head these two clubs have previously met 10 times, with Atlanta winning 5 times to take the series edge. These clubs have already faced each other early in the campaign with a 3-3 draw. Eight out of 10 matches between Montreal and Atlanta saw both teams score in the match. Montreal gives up goals and can score them, too, so backing both teams to score will be the play.

MLS: DC United +0.5 (+130) vs Columbus Crew SC, 7:30 pm ET

DC United is by no means among the league’s elite, but second-year head coach Hernan Losada turned the group around last year in what was expected to be a rebuilding season. The team nearly made the postseason, and they’re coming into Columbus fresh off an impressive 3-2 win against the New England Revolution. DC managed that without their top striker Ola Kamara, who nearly won the Golden Boot last year and was suspended last weekend due to a prior red card. Kamara will be back in action in Columbus, where he played the first 2 seasons of his MLS career, and he should be able to help his team bring back at least a point to the nation’s capital. Double your chances and take a draw or a DC win.

MLB: Cincinnati Reds vs Colorado Rockies ML (-140), 8:10 pm ET

Colorado has been bringing the lumber all season, especially in that mile-high air. C.J. Cron and Connor Joe got off to hot starts and have hardly cooled off. Their bats have led the Rockies to maintaining a top-5 OPS rank the majority of the season thus far.

On the other side, Cincinnati has not fared well against the NL West, getting swept by both the Dodgers and Padres. Those struggles seem as though they will continue with Colorado sending Chad Kuhl to the mound. His 2022 start has been anything but rocky; he’s 2-0, given up 2 total runs, and has lasted 6.0 innings in each of his last 2 starts. Kuhl should remain cool on the mound against the Reds.
