Four-pick cross-sport parlay for today 8/3 (+806 odds): MLB and MLS
We have put together a 4-pick cross-sport parlay that will take you right through Wednesday, including picks from MLB and MLS. Two picks are taken from each sport and a winning ticket would give us a nice payout with odds of +806 at DraftKings Sportsbook.
Let’s break down each of these plays.
MLB: Kansas City Royals vs Chicago White Sox – Under 8.5 runs (-110), 2:10 pm ET
The offenses for both teams have struggled to put up runs recently, ranking in the bottom 10 in runs scored in the last 15 days. Brady Singer is also a problem for the White Sox. He has faced Chicago twice this season and has allowed no earned runs. Even though Lance Lynn has a tendency to give up runs, having confidence in only one team to score runs is enough reason to place your bet on the under.

MLS: Charlotte FC ML (-145) over DC United, 7:00 pm ET
Wednesday’s matchup seems like the perfect chance for Charlotte to grab all three points. DC United is just 2-6-1 away from home, and their only wins were on May 3 and then recently against Orlando SC, who DC United has beaten twice this season. Charlotte has home wins over Nashville SC, the New York Red Bulls and Atlanta United already this season, so we predict they will have no issues taking care of DC United, and we’ll back them as our best bet for Wednesday night.

MLB: St. Louis Cardinals ML (-170) over Chicago Cubs, 7:45 pm ET
St. Louis starter Miles Mikolas has helped defeat Chicago twice within a month by a combined score of 19-8. He’s also been able to pitch at least 7.0 innings in 3 of his last 4 starts. The Cards already have the superior bullpen, so that only enhances their advantage even more. All of that is without mentioning having NL MVP-favorite Paul Goldschmidt in the lineup, leading the way to becoming a top-10 run-scoring team along with Nolan Arenado. For that reason, backing the Cardinals will be the play on Wednesday night.

MLS: Inter Miami CF vs San Jose Earthquakes – Both teams to score and Over 2.5 total goals (-130), 10:30 pm ET
Neither team has been very successful at defending this season, considering San Jose ranks last in the Western Conference in goals allowed (45), while Inter Miami ranks 3rd to last in the Eastern Conference (37). Therefore, we’ll turn to the game total for Wednesday’s matchup because both teams have scored, and there have been over 2.5 goals in 9 of San Jose’s 11 home matches. We expect this trend to continue and predict we are in store for a high-scoring affair between Inter Miami and San Jose.
