Four-pick cross-sport parlay for Sunday (+1190 odds): NBA Playoffs, NHL Playoffs, and MLB picks
We’ve put together a four-pick cross-sport parlay that will take you right through Sunday, including action from the NBA Playoffs, NHL Playoffs, and the MLB.
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 +1190 with BetMGM — that’s more than 11/1! Let’s break down each of these four plays. Remember to gamble responsibly.
Best MLB pick: Boston Red Sox -1.5 (+115) vs. Kansas City Royals, 2:10 pm ET
When on the road, Nathan Eovaldi’s ERA drops to 2.42 and the righty looked very sharp in his last away outing against the Yankees when he allowed only one earned run in six innings. The lefty Mike Minor will start for Kansas City on Sunday and in 79.2 innings this season he has posted a 4.63 ERA and a 4.11 FIP. Minor has been having a slightly below average season so far, but the difference in this game will be how well the Red Sox have hit southpaws this season. Boston has a .263 batting average which is the sixth best mark in the league this season, so getting the Red Sox run line at such good value is hard to pass up.
Best NBA pick: Los Angeles Clippers vs. Phoenix Suns Under 219.5 (-105), 3:35 pm ET
Los Angeles had so much success offensively against Utah because they were able to blow by all Jazz defenders off the dribble, and Phoenix’s perimeter defense is much better. Chris Paul is obviously the floor general that makes the Suns’ offense run. Even when he was hobbled with his shoulder injury, he was still able to at least run the offense and get people in the right spots like a true point guard. The unit could be a bit out of sync early on without him out there. Phoenix’s defense has been absolutely smothering in the playoffs, as they’ve given up more than 109 points just once in 10 postseason games. Bet on a defensive struggle here.
Best MLB pick: Los Angeles Dodgers ML (-200) vs. Arizona Diamondbacks, 4:10 pm ET
There is no good reason to bet on the Arizona Diamondbacks now, under just about any circumstances. Long gone are the days at the beginning of May when Arizona was two games over .500 at 15-13. They just broke a 58-year record with their 23rd straight road loss, so backing the Dodgers will be our play.
