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 Friday, including picks from the MLB and Wimbledon. Two picks are taken from the MLB with one pick from the MLS and Wimbledon. A winning ticket would give us a nice payout with odds of +973 at DraftKings Sportsbook.

Let’s break down each of these plays.

Wimbledon: Novak Djokovic vs Cameron Norrie over 5.5 service breaks (-150), 9:30 am ET

The smart move for this semifinal is to go searching for props, and the even smarter move is to the play the percentages and back the over on the service breaks market. Novak Djokovic has gone over this number in 4 of his 5 matches so far, with the exception being a 6-1 6-4 6-2 second-round beatdown of Thanasi Kokkinakis in which there were 5 breaks. Cameron Norrie has also gone over this number in 4 of his 5 matches, and 2 of those featured a double-digit number of breaks. There is no reason to think that this matchup will suddenly be one in which service breaks are few and far between for Djokovic and Norrie. For that reason, stick with the trends and take the over.

MLB: Cleveland Guardians ML (-105) over Kansas City Royals, 8:10 pm ET

The Royals are one of the league’s worst teams largely due to their pitching staff. They lack in a lot of areas, but their bullpen is atrocious. It’s the 4th-worst in the league, and that’s the best they’ve been over the last few weeks. The worse news is that they will be the ones without the rest. Kansas City just had to finish off their 4-game series against a very tough Astros team, while the Guardians had Thursday off.

Cleveland should have also used the day off to remember the last time they faced Royals starter Brady Singer. The Guardians got him pulled after just 3.0 innings and ultimately went on to win the game by a final score of 17-3. This one may not be quite as crazy, but the Guardians should still start this series with a win.

MLB: Philadelphia Phillies ML (-105) over St. Louis Cardinals, 8:15 pm ET

As of Thursday, the Cardinals have scored 3.5 runs per game over their last 10 with only 4 runs scored in their last 4 games. It will be tough for them to break out of a slump against Phillies starter Zack Wheeler. The righty enters this game with a 2.66 ERA and 1.07 WHIP with 99 strikeouts in 88.0 innings pitched across 15 starts. Philly is much more of a reliable play in this game against a volatile and slumping Cardinals team.

MLS: Vancouver Whitecaps – Draw No Bet (-145) over Minnesota United, 10:30 pm ET

The Vancouver Whitecaps will host Minnesota United on Friday evening at BC Place. Both clubs have identical 7-8-3 records and are 2 points back of the last playoff spot in the West. Vancouver is coming off an emotional 1-0 win over LAFC, the top club in MLS. The Whitecaps have been a good team at BC Place, suffering only 1 home defeat. The Whitecaps are also 3-1-1 when these clubs have met at BC Place. For that reason, the Whitecaps should grab a result at home, so take them with the draw no bet.
