Four-pick cross-sport parlay for today 6/20 (+1011 odds): Stanley Cup Finals and MLB
We have put together a 4-pick cross-sport parlay that will take you right through Monday, including action from Stanley Cup Finals and MLB. Three picks are taken from the MLB with one pick from the Stanley Cup. A winning ticket would give us a nice payout with odds of +1011 at DraftKings. Let’s break down each of these plays.
MLB: New York Yankees ML (-130) vs Tampa Bay Rays, 7:10 pm ET
The Yankees come into this game with the league’s best team ERA and the league’s highest team OPS. They are simply dominating on both defense and offense, not to mention they also have the 2nd-best bullpen ERA.
Unfortunately for the Rays, they are opening up this series against Gerrit Cole. The Rays just recently faced Cole and were held scoreless over 6.0 innings, with 7 strikeouts. Given that New York has got even stronger since then and the Rays lost a series against the Orioles over the weekend, this is more than a reasonable price for the Yankees on the money line.

MLB: San Francisco Giants vs Atlanta Braves ML (-155), 7:20 pm ET
The Atlanta Braves will start Max Fried in the series opener, who hasn’t allowed more than a single run in 3 of his last 5 starts. Fried is 7-2 on the season, while Logan Webb is 6-2 for the Giants. With evenly matched starting pitchers, this game looks to be coming down to Atlanta’s far superior bullpen.
After a mediocre start to the year, the Braves relievers have worked their way to a top-5 ERA, while the Giants have struggled all year in that department. San Francisco wasn’t impressive against a bad Pirates team all weekend, therefore expect their struggles to continue in the series opener against the defending World Series champs.

Stanley Cup Finals Game 3: Colorado Avalanche vs Tampa Bay Lightning ML (-110), 8:15 pm ET
After dropping the first 2 games in the series, Game 3 will be held in Lightning territory. This is a huge and very welcoming factor, as Tampa Bay has been playing lights-out at home, winning 7 of their 8 home games during these playoffs. Lightning captain Steven Stamkos called out his team after the embarrassing Game 2 from the team, so expect a much better effort. This series is far from over, so take the Lightning in Game 3.

MLB: Kansas City Royals vs Los Angeles Angels -1.5 (+100), 9:38 pm ET
The Angels’ recent struggles seem to have subsided and they have wins in 4 of their last 5 games. The projected starters are left-hander Kris Bubic for the Royals and right-hander Noah Syndergaard for the Angels. Bubic has been disappointing this season to say the least, going 0-4 in 8 starts with an ERA of 8.36.
Syndergaard’s numbers are much better, going 4-5 in 10 starts with an ERA of 3.53. His numbers in June have been amazing, posting an ERA of 1.69 over 2 starts. Even though the Royals’ bats have been better recently, there is no confidence in Bubic to keep them in the game, so take the Angels -1.5 run line.
