We have put together a 4-pick cross-sport parlay that will take you right through Thursday, including picks from the NBA Draft and MLB. Three picks are taken from the MLB with one pick from the NBA Draft. A winning ticket would give us a nice payout with odds of +1317 at DraftKings. Let’s break down each of these plays.

MLB: Atlanta Braves ML (-155) over San Francisco Giants, 12:20 pm ET

The Braves should get this game over nice and early in the day with such an early start time, and with Kyle Wright on the mound. He has great numbers across the board, whether it be his low 2.92 ERA, 1.11 WHIP or 27.4 strikeout percentage.

The same cannot be said about Giants starter Alex Wood. He’s had his 2 bad starts recently against 2 struggling lineups in the Pirates and Reds. He allowed at least 3 runs in each, with San Francisco ultimately losing both games. With the Braves remaining at home after this series, all hands should be on deck to close it out with a win.

MLB: Minnesota Twins ML (-135) over Cleveland Guardians, 1:10 pm ET

The Twins will have Devin Smeltzer on the hill for the finale, which looks to be a great matchup for them to end the series with a win. The lefty didn’t get his first start this season until mid-May, but he is 3-1 on the year and should be excited about today’s game.

The Guardians are the 2nd-worst lineup against left-handed pitching as well. That means they are worse than teams like the Pirates and A’s, who have the worst lineup and record in baseball. Smeltzer may not be Clayton Kershaw, but he’s already been a formidable enough lefty for Cleveland’s struggles to be real. His first start of the season was against the Guardians, and he allowed just a single run off 3 hits. Because of the struggles Cleveland has had against left-handed pitching, backing Minnesota will be the play.

NBA Draft: Mark Williams draft position – under 13.5 (+170), 8:00 pm ET

Mark Williams is a name that most basketball fans know. He played two seasons of college ball at Duke and was especially productive as a sophomore. The 7-footer averaged 11.2 points, 7.4 rebounds and 2.8 blocks per game.

Also, NBA teams should be even more focused on the defensive end of the court given how the Golden State Warriors, Boston Celtics and Miami Heat performed in the playoffs. Both the New York Knicks and Charlotte Hornets are in need of a pure center, so those are potential destinations for Williams in the top 13.

MLB: Philadelphia Phillies vs San Diego Padres – Over 7 runs (-120), 9:00 pm ET

The Phillies have been the most profitable team for overs the majority of this month, due to both their run production and allowing the opposition to produce. This should be a case with the latter, but Philly still has a deep lineup.

These teams are battling to round out the top 5 in runs scored, and San Diego should claim it against Philly’s Ranger Suarez and below average bullpen. With San Diego having scored 12 and 19 runs in back-to-back games just over a week ago, they can do enough damage for this to go over the listed total.
