We have put together a 4-pick cross-sport parlay that will take you right through Sunday, including picks from the MLB, EPL, MLS and NFL preseason. One pick is taken from each sport and a winning ticket would give us a nice payout with odds of +843 at DraftKings Sportsbook.

Let’s break down each of these plays.

EPL: Tottenham Hotspur vs Chelsea – Under 2.5 goals (-115), 11:30 am ET

Since beating hapless Norwich 7-0 on October 23 last year, Chelsea has scored more than 2 goals in just 1 of 14 home league matches. Tottenham has scored just 2 goals in its last 6 visits to Stamford Bridge, so while Spurs have clearly improved under Antonio Conte, it is more likely that these teams will cancel each other out, making the under worth a play.

MLB: San Diego Padres -1.5 (-165) over Washington Nationals, 12:05 pm ET

Although the Padres’ clubhouse was struck with a blow on Friday with the news of Fernando Tatis Jr.’s suspension, they seem to be rallying around the situation. San Diego is clicking right now and they have a favorable matchup against one of the worst teams in baseball.

The Nationals have lost 8 out of their last 10 games and are 4-15 in their last 19 games at home. Simply put, Washington is a weaker team on both sides of the ball. The Padres have a huge advantage on the mound as well with Blake Snell opposing Paolo Espino. For that reason, backing the Padres on the run line will be the play.

NFL preseason: Las Vegas Raiders -4 (-110) over Minnesota Vikings, 4:25 pm ET

The Raiders dominated the Jacksonville Jaguars in last week’s Hall of Fame game, and there is not much evidence to suggest that Las Vegas won’t bring the same intensity in this matchup.

On top of that, it doesn’t appear likely that Vikings’ starting quarterback, Kirk Cousins will see much of the field, which leaves the ball in Sean Mannion’s hands. We do not expect Mannion or 3rd stringer, Kellen Mond to make enough of an impact to give the Vikings a real chance in this game, therefore backing the Raiders to win and cover will be the play.

MLS: Minnesota United vs Nashville SC – Both teams to score (-155), 9:00 pm ET

These side met in Minnesota in March, splitting the points in a 1-1 draw. To go along with that, both clubs have found the net in their last 10 MLS contests, so for that reason, backing both teams to score on Sunday night as well will be the play.
