Four-pick cross-sport parlay for today 7/7 (+964 odds): MLB and Wimbledon
We have put together a 4-pick cross-sport parlay that will take you right through Thursday, including picks from the MLB and Wimbledon. Three picks are taken from the MLB and one from Wimbledon. A winning ticket would give us a nice payout with odds of +964 at DraftKings Sportsbook.
Let’s break down each of these plays.
Wimbledon: Simona Halep -1.5 sets (-135) over Elena Rybakina, 10:00 am ET
Simona Halep has been absolutely clobbering her opponents. She has not lost a single set at the All-England Club, nor has she even been pushed to a tiebreaker. Only one set has been more competitive than 6-4 and she looked especially ruthless in the fourth round (6-1 6-2 over No. 4 seed Paula Badosa) and quarters (6-2 6-4 over No. 20 seed Amanda Anisimova).
Elena Rybakina is coming off a 3-set battle against Ajla Tomljanovic and doesn’t have any days off in between matches. The 23rd-ranked Kazakh seemed to be dealing with a minor hamstring issue during that match, too. Moreover, this is her first appearance in a Grand Slam semifinal so it’s going to be a new experience on a big stage for her. There is no reason to think Rybakina will be the first to take a set off Halep at this tournament.

MLB: Atlanta Braves -1.5 (-105) over St. Louis Cardinals, 7:20 pm ET
Atlanta is a very heavy favorite considering these are both winning ball clubs. Spencer Strider is still very early in his career but he has twice as much experience as Matthew Liberatore and has done more with it. It is hard not to like him and the Braves in this spot, especially with Atlanta’s offense humming. For that reason, backing the Braves on the run line is worth a play.

MLB: Chicago White Sox -1.5 (-125) over Detroit Tigers, 8:10 pm ET
The White Sox are opening up this series with Dylan Cease, who can help them create some distance from the Tigers in the division. Chicago has won each of his last 4 starts, and 6 of his last 7. He’s allowed just a single run in each of his last 2 starts, and gave up 0 earned runs for 5 straight starts prior to those.
That’s exponentially better than Tigers starter Beau Briske. He’s just 1-6 in his rookie season, and has allowed 12 runs across his last 3 starts. With the White Sox piecing their lineup back together and their best starter on the mound, they should start this series with a comfortable win.

MLB: Los Angeles Dodgers -1.5 (-135) over Chicago Cubs, 10:10 pm ET
The Los Angeles Dodgers will open this series against a dreadful Chicago Cubs side by starting Tony Gonsolin. He is coming off back-to-back starts in which he held his opponents to just 1 run. Those opponents were the San Diego Padres and the Atlanta Braves. The Dodgers won those games, and they haven’t lost with Gonsolin on the mound since mid-May. With a healthy Mookie Betts leading off an all-star lineup, the Dodgers can take care of the Cubs convincingly.
