We have put together a 4-pick cross-sport parlay that will take you right through Monday, including picks from the MLB and EPL. Three picks are taken from the MLB with one pick from the EPL. A winning ticket would give us a nice payout with odds of +726 at DraftKings Sportsbook.

Let’s break down each of these plays.

EPL: Liverpool -1.5 (-155) over Crystal Palace, 3:00 pm ET

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp will have had 9 days to reflect on his team’s opening 2-2 tie with promoted Fulham and his comments that he was disappointed with his team’s attitude should bring a reaction for their Monday clash at home against Crystal Palace.

While the quality of his team’s defending may have left Klopp concerned, the early promise of new striker Darwin Nunez will be particularly pleasing after the Uruguayan added to his Community Shield goal against Manchester City with the first against Fulham.

Crystal Palace kept three away clean sheets last season but it is difficult to see them stopping the flood if the FA Cup winners are determined to put on a show. For that reason, backing Liverpool to win by multiple goals will be the play.

MLB: Philadelphia Phillies ML (-190) over Cincinnati Reds, 6:40 pm ET

The Phillies will taking on an aging lefty starter in Mike Minor and a Reds lineup void of nearly every notable hitter. Minor has been awful this season. He is just 1-9 with an ERA of 6.24 and the Reds have lost each of his last 9 starts.

That should be comforting news for Phillies starter Noah Syndergaard, who was acquired at the trade deadline. He faces a Reds team that traded away their best 2 hitters and has key players Jonathan India and Mike Moustakas not 100%. Everything sets up for a great series opener for the Phillies.

MLB: Minnesota Twins -1.5 (+105) over Kansas City Royals, 7:40 pm ET

The Twins were able to avoid having to face Angels Shohei Ohtani on the mound over the weekend and now get a struggling Royals pitching staff. Kansas City has the league’s 4th-worst team ERA, something Kris Bubic has contributed toward. It is also worth mentioning that the Royals have lost 5 of his 6 starts in July, including 2 against a poor Detroit team.

Meanwhile, Twins starter Joe Ryan will be out to continue living up to his hype. He has already defeated the Royals twice this season, with the most recent being a dominant 9-2 win. After pitching against the Dodgers and Padres in 2 of his last 3 starts, he should enjoy this game against a Royals team that traded away its best 2 hitters.

MLB: Los Angeles Dodgers ML (-165) over Milwaukee Brewers, 8:10 pm ET

Los Angeles comes into Monday’s game looking to extend their league-best record, and become the 1st team to 80 wins. Their recent 12-game winning streak also saw them win each of them by multiple runs.

Meanwhile, the Brewers have been streaky as of late. After a great start out of the all-star break they were swept by the Pirates and lost a series to the Reds. Unfortunately for the Brewers, they also have a terrible matchup against L.A. starter Julio Urias. The Dodgers have won each of his last 10 starts and he is going for his 13th win. The Brewers are also the 6th-worst lineup against lefties, making the Dodgers worth a play on Monday night.
