Matthew uses a variety of methods to handicap games, including stats, trends, injuries, and situational factors. His goal is to consistently give out winners and will put in the research to try and achieve this.

We have put together a 4-pick cross-sport parlay that will take you right through Sunday, including picks from the MLB and MLS. Two picks are taken from both the MLB and MLS and a winning ticket would give us a nice payout with odds of +1154 at DraftKings Sportsbook.

Let’s break down each of these plays.

MLB: Seattle Mariners vs Texas Rangers – Under 9 runs (-120), 2:35 pm ET

These teams have been pretty back-and-forth when it comes to low and high-scoring games, but this total is rather high for a game at Globe Life Field in Texas. The dome ranks as the absolute worst for extra-base hits and 30th for overall runs. It’s also important to keep in mind that this is the last game before the all-star break. There’s a chance that some key hitters may rest and be out of the lineup for this game. Even if that is the case, that still helps support a low-scoring Rangers win. Seattle has been hot, but only recently. The Mariners’ lineup has not been consistent enough this season and should not be trusted if any hot bats are missing. For that reason, backing an under will be the play.

MLB: San Francisco Giants ML (-145) over Milwaukee Brewers, 4:05 pm ET

The projected starters for this series finale are right-handers Jason Alexander for the Brewers and Logan Webb for the Giants. Alexander has been up with the Brewers only since the start of June and is 2-1 in 7 starts with an ERA of 4.73. His July has been shaky, with an ERA of 7.71.

Webb on the other hand, has been stellar all season, going 8-3 in 18 starts with an ERA of 2.82. Unlike Alexander, Webb’s July has been amazing with an ERA of 1.80. Offensively, the Giants have the edge as they rank around average, while the Brewers rank in the bottom 10 in team average, OBP and OPS in the last 15 days. Look for Webb to outpitch Alexander and take the Giants money line.

MLS: New York Red Bulls ML (+125) over New York FC, 5:00 pm ET

Although NYCFC grabbed an away win in their last game, it was just their third road victory this season, and they are much better when playing at Yankee Stadium. The home team is 11-1-3 in the last 15 matchups between NYCFC and the Red Bulls, and the Red Bulls own the lone road victory. Therefore, we’ll back the hosts to continue the home team’s fine form in this rivalry and expect the Red Bulls to pick up all 3 points.

MLS: Real Salt Lake ML (-125) vs Sporting Kansas City, 9:30 pm ET

These squads met earlier this season in a game that finished in a 1-0 Sporting KC victory at Children’s Mercy Park. Although that was a great result for the hosts, Sporting hasn’t been nearly as strong on the road and carries a 2-7-3 record. It’s very unlikely they will keep a shutout today, and Real Salt Lake is still undefeated at home. After tying their last 2 home matches against the Columbus Crew and Colorado Rapids, the hosts can bounce back. Take Real Salt Lake to get all 3 points against Sporting Kansas City.
