Matthew uses a variety of methods to handicap games, including stats, trends, injuries, and situational factors. His goal is to consistently give out winners and will put in the research to try and achieve this.

We have put together a four-pick cross-sport parlay that will take you right through Sunday, including action from the MLS, and the MLB.

Two picks are taken from each sport and a winning ticket gives us a nice payout with odds at +1481 with BetMGM — that’s more than 14/1! Let’s break down each of these four plays. Remember to gamble responsibly.

Best MLB pick: San Diego Padres ML (-130) vs. Philadelphia Phillies, 1:05 pm ET

For the Phillies Vince Velasquez, it has never been about talent. He gets himself into trouble because he struggles with consistency. In May he was very effective with an ERA of 2.96, but that went up more than a run in June. Even though Blake Snell has not been great this season it is hard not to like him when the price is not too high. Fading Velasquez is also a generally good strategy. He often beats himself anyway and San Diego is more than capable of hitting him hard even though they are basically a .500 team on the road. Philly is just 12-16 against lefties this season. Take San Diego.

Best MLB pick: Minnesota Twins ML (-160) vs. Kansas City Royals, 2:10 pm ET

Brad Keller has been the worst starter in baseball. Frankly, it’s a miracle that he’s lasted 18 times through the rotation – he’s allowed more runs and more hits than any other pitcher in the Major Leagues, and his WHIP through 81.0 innings nears two. Opposing hitters hit .367 against Keller in six starts in June, a month in which he went 1-4 with an ERA close to nine. While the Twins haven’t hit him as hard as many other teams the three times they’ve faced him this year, their lineup is finally starting to live up to its full potential, and their 33-48 record isn’t a good indication of what this team can actually do. Take Minnesota.

Best MLS Pick: FC Dallas 1H ML (+120) vs. Vancouver Whitecaps, 8:30 pm ET

The Whitecaps are most vulnerable towards the end of a half, after their players have been running for 45 minutes nonstop, and there’s no better team to shock them late than FC Dallas and their 18-year-old budding star Ricardo Pepi. Pepi scored twice in Dallas’ upset of the first-place Revolution last week. His presence on the pitch makes Dallas a more offensive-oriented team than they had been, so expect them to find the net in the first half and take the lead into halftime.

Best MLS Pick: Sporting Kansas City vs. LA Galaxy ML (+150), 10:30 pm ET

The Galaxy have won four of their five home matches this year, losing only to a red-hot Seattle team in their most recent match at Dignity Health Park. But they will have another tough opponent in second-place Kansas City, who’ve scored three goals in four of their past seven matches. While the Galaxy’s defense is capable of stopping Kansas City completely, even if they do allow a goal or two, the attack should do enough to keep the three points at home. If you’re off on Monday for the holiday, stay up and watch this one–and when you do, take the Galaxy on the money line.
