Four-pick cross-sport parlay for today 6/13 (+891 odds): NBA Finals and MLB
We have put together a 4-pick cross-sport parlay that will take you right through Monday, including action from the NBA Finals and MLB. Three picks are taken from the MLB with one pick from the NBA. A winning ticket would give us a nice payout with odds of +891 at DraftKings. Let’s break down each of these plays.
MLB: Atlanta Braves ML (-150) vs Washington Nationals, 7:05 pm ET
The Braves are playing their best baseball of the season, winning 11 consecutive games and covering the run line in 9 of those games. In addition, they rank 3rd in both batting average and OPS over the last two weeks while averaging 6.73 runs per game during their win streak.
The Nationals have lost 4 of their last 6 games and 8 consecutive home games against the Braves. With the way the Braves have been playing, they should continue their winning streak today. Back Atlanta on the money line against the Nationals.

MLB: Baltimore Orioles vs Toronto Blue Jays – Over 8.5 runs (-115), 7:07 pm ET
Surprisingly enough, the Blue Jays aren’t the only ones seeing the ball well. The Orioles scored even more runs than Toronto on Sunday, and have been producing quite consistently. Rogers Centre in Toronto is a top-10 ballpark for home runs as well, and is top 5 for both runs and extra-base hits.
Now with the Blue Jays facing a struggling Kyle Bradish, Toronto could do some serious damage to this total early on. His last start against the Boston Red Sox ended with 20 total runs in a 12-8 loss. With the Blue Jays still needing to improve their bullpen, the Orioles’ should tack on a few extra runs as they chase the lead Toronto gets early on.

NBA Finals: Boston Celtics +3.5 (-110) vs Golden State Warriors, 9:00 pm ET
The Celtics are 7-0 straight up and against the spread after a loss this postseason. Golden State has lost just 11 total games at home this season, but 2 of those losses have been to Boston. The Celtics have won 6 of their last 7 Game 5s when the series is tied 2-2, including in the Eastern Conference Finals in Miami, so take the points.

MLB: Cincinnati Reds vs Arizona Diamondbacks ML (-150), 9:40 pm ET
The Diamondbacks have a major advantage on the mound with Merrill Kelly in this game. Kelly is 5-3 this season and has an ERA if 3.32. He pitches better in Arizona too, as his ERA drops from 4.06 on the road to 2.65 at home.
Opposing Kelly will be Mike Minor. The D-Backs faced Minor last week and fared very well, so they should be able to repeat that success on a quick turnaround and mash this weak Cincy bullpen. The D-Backs bullpen isn’t much better than the Reds’, so there’s not a ton of confidence in this group either, but they have a significant edge in the starting pitchers and should be able to pick up another win.
