We have put together a 4-pick cross-sport parlay that will take you right through Saturday, including picks from the UFC, PLL, MLB and MLS. One pick is taken from each sport and a winning ticket would give us a nice payout with odds of +719 at DraftKings Sportsbook.

Let’s break down each of these plays.

PLL: Whipsnakes vs Chrome – Under 23.5 goals (-120), 4:30 pm ET

The Chrome have been fairly efficient on offense this year, scoring a goal on just around 30% of their possessions. However, that efficiency has faltered somewhat over the past three weeks, only scoring at around 27% of the time — not a huge difference, but an indication that they’re probably not going to set the world on fire this week in terms of efficiency. Both teams should have around the same amount of possessions, and I expect each offense to have below average efficiencies based on the defenses they are playing. All of that bodes well for an under, which is why we’re taking it.

MLB: Philadelphia Phillies -1.5 (+105) over Pittsburgh Pirates, 7:15 pm ET

After having to face Phillies ace Zack Wheeler back in the opener, the Pirates are back to another rough matchup on Saturday. Ranger Suarez may not be ace caliber, but the Pirates have not enjoyed facing lefties this season. They have the 5th-lowest OPS against such pitching and are already one of the weakest lineups in baseball.

That’s great news for Suarez who hopes to continue his strong month. He led the team to a dominant 10-0 win over the Marlins just prior to the all-star break and just helped them take down the Braves back on Monday. He didn’t allow a single earned run in either of those starts, so the Phillies should be confident with him on the mound. Pittsburgh has now lost 3 of his 4 starts this month. One of those was against the Marlins who Suarez and the Phillies just handled easily, which they should do again in this game.

MLS: Philadelphia Union ML (-165) over Houston Dynamo, 7:30 pm ET

Form is on the side of the Union as they have won their last 4 games – and it is hard to see anything but a comfortable win for them against Houston Dynamo on Saturday. They also have recorded 3 shutouts in their last 5 games but also showed their offensive prowess when thumping DC United 7-0 earlier this month. The Dynamo have suffered 4 losses in their last 6 contests. Therefore, backing Philadelphia on the money line is the safest play for this parlay.

UFC 277: Amanda Nunes ML (-280) over Julianna Pena, 12:00 am ET (Sunday)

The last time these ladies fought, Julianna Pena shocked the world by not only beating Amanda Nunes, but also by making her tap out. Not that Nunes was taking Pena lightly last time, but now she certainly has her attention and it is likely that she will be ready for what Pena brings to the table for this rematch. Despite her shocking loss, Nunes is still one of the greatest female UFC fighters, therefore backing Nunes to reclaim her title will be the play.
