Four-pick cross-sport parlay for Sunday, June 6 (+1234): NHL, NBA and MLB picks
A big Sunday 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 MLB. A winning ticket gives us a nice payout with odds at +1234 with BetMGM — that’s 12/1! Let’s break down each of these four plays. Remember to gamble responsibly.
Best MLB pick: Detroit Tigers vs. Chicago White Sox -1.5 (-105), 2:10 pm ET
Chicago will have Dylan Cease on the mound, and he has dominated Detroit in the past. Cease is 6-0 with a 2.29 ERA in six career starts against the Tigers.
On the other side, the Tigers have Jose Urena listed as the probable starter. If he does in fact pitch, it will be his first outing since leaving his start on May 26 due to right forearm tightness. The right-hander has had a very up-and-down season, and with him returning from injury, we don’t really know what we are going to get. The Detroit bullpen has also been a mess all season and they have not pitched particularly well in this series either. For that reason, we like the White Sox to win comfortably.
Best MLB pick: Oakland Athletics vs. Colorado Rockies Under 11 Runs (-105), 3:10 pm ET
In his first six starts of the season, Marquez pitched 32.2 innings and allowed 15 earned runs on 29 hits. In his next six starts, Marquez pitched 32.2 innings and allowed 15 earned runs on 29 hits. He is nothing if not consistent, and consistency is crucial for a starting pitcher to find success at this level, especially in Colorado. James Kaprielian has never faced the Rockies before but he did make 66 appearances in his career at UCLA, so he should have some experience pitching in altitude from his years in the Pac-12. This is another Coors Field inflated total that probably won’t go this high given the way Marquez has pitched in his last two starts there. For that reason, we will be backing the under.
Best NBA Pick: Dallas Mavericks vs. Los Angeles Clippers Under 210.5 Points (-110), 3:35 pm ET
The first three games all went over the total, but since then the two teams are averaging just 197.6 points combined and the total has gone under in all three of those games. If we look at the overall pace of this series it currently stands at 90.8 possessions per game. Both teams have struggled shooting the ball, especially from the three-point line. Mavs went 32 percent in Game 6, while the Clippers shot it even worse at 29 percent. As a result, we like the under here in what should be an intense Game 7.
Best NHL pick: Colorado Avalanche vs. Vegas Golden Knights Under 5.5 Goals (-120), 8:38 pm ET
Phillip Grubauer and Marc-Andre Fleury have carried their incredible play from the regular season into the playoffs. Grubauer was hands down the best player on the ice on Friday and nearly stole the game for Colorado, setting aside 40 of 43 shots. Fleury continues to be incredibly consistent which is evident by his 1.88 GAA and .922 SV% in the playoffs. The first game of the series was a bit of an anomaly but in the last two games each team has only been able to score two goals in regulation. For that reason, we will back another under.
