Four-pick cross-sport parlay for Thursday, June 10 (+1395): NHL, NBA and MLB picks
A big Thursday 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.
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 +1395 with BetMGM — that’s nearly 14/1! Let’s break down each of these four plays. Remember to gamble responsibly.
Best MLB pick: Colorado Rockies vs. Miami Marlins -1.5 (+100), 7:10pm ET
Colorado holds a record of 20-14 at home, but they are a miserable 5-23 on the road. They have yet to win back-to-back road games this season. The Rockies are hitting .196 as a collective on the road, and their OPS is a measly .558. Their offense has not traveled well, and now they will have to face reigning two-time National League rookie of the month Trevor Rogers. The left-hander has been masterful this season, posting a minuscule 1.97 ERA through 12 starts.
Chi Chi Gonzalez will start for the Rockies and holds a 4.84 ERA and 1.39 WHIP through 48.1 innings this season. His opponents are hitting .285 against him, so we like the Marlins to win this game comfortably on the run line.
Best MLB pick: Kansas City Royals vs. Oakland Athletics -1.5 (+125), 9:40pm ET
The Royals are not in great form so heading from LA up to Oakland does not look like a fun trip. Their offense has a lot of potential but they just can’t get it firing on all cylinders. Lefty Mike Minor still has pretty good stuff but his consistency has not been what the Royals were hoping for. He gave up three homers in his last start and that has been problematic. A’s righty Frankie Montas started the season slowly but has been getting stronger as it goes on. Go with the better form team here, which is Oakland.
Best NHL pick: Colorado Avalanche vs. Vegas Golden Knights ML (-135), 9pm ET
The Vegas Golden Knights have now won three straight games against the Colorado Avalanche, with the most recent coming on the road in Colorado to give them a 3-2 series lead. It seems as though the Avalanche threw everything they had at the Golden Knights in Game 5, but it was not enough. Even when they seem to be getting outplayed, the Golden Knights do not go away. Their forward depth is what allows them to always be in a hockey game, even when trailing. They attack in waves and all four lines pose a threat to score goals while being responsible defensively at the same time. Given they will be at home, we like the Golden Knights to finish off the Avs and will back them on the money line.
Best NBA pick: Los Angeles Clippers vs. Utah Jazz over 221.5 points, 10:05pm ET
The Game 1 total finished right about where oddsmakers set it, despite both offenses starting extremely slowly. The game was just played at a pretty fast pace, and managed to finish at 221 despite the Jazz shooting only 40.7 percent from the floor.
It’s fun to clown on Paul George but he probably isn’t going to shoot 4/17 again. Marcus Morris and Kawhi Leonard likely won’t combine to go 2/13 from downtown again either. With modest shooting improvements from both teams, and the potential reinsertion of Mike Conley into the lineup, it’s hard to see why we would have fewer points than in Game 1. For that reason, we like the over in this game.
