We have put together a 4-pick cross-sport parlay that will take you right through Tuesday night and Wednesday morning, including action from the MLB and KBO.

Three picks are taken from MLB with one from the KBO on Wednesday morning. A winning ticket gives us a nice payout with odds at +1058 with FanDuel; that’s more than 10/1! Let’s break down each of these plays.

MLB: Toronto Blue Jays vs New York Yankees – Under 8.5 runs (-102), 7:05pm ET

These teams have played each other at Yankee Stadium 7 times so far this season. All of those games failed to exceed 8 total runs. This is a high-quality pitching matchup that should produce another low-scoring game. Gerrit Cole is dialed in right now, and he is posting a 0.73 ERA over his last 4 starts. He is also holding opponents to a .202 batting average at home on the year. 

On the other side, Steven Matz has allowed 2 or fewer earned runs in 6 straight starts. New York’s offense has been rather inconsistent, and they have struggled against lefties recently. The Yankees rank 22nd in all of baseball with a .684 OPS against lefties over the last 15 days. Roll with the under.

MLB: Kansas City Royals ML (-118) vs Baltimore Orioles, 7:05pm ET

Rookie right-hander Jackson Kowar has struggled for the Royals. The one positive is that he has got a little better with each start, but the Royals have lost all 4 of his outings. Facing Baltimore could be just what he needs to get his first MLB win.

Australian rookie Alexander Wells has made 3 starts and 3 relief appearances this season, none with any real success. He has not pitched in a game in almost a month (August 10) so it is hard to know what to expect, but a great performance is not likely. It is also hard to know how much stamina he has.

With a better lineup, Kansas City is the pick in a game that could go a lot of different ways. They have some momentum off the opening-game win and their pitcher is not coming off an MLB layoff. Take Kansas City.

MLB: San Francisco Giants -1.5 (-140) vs Colorado Rockies, 8:40pm ET

When Logan Webb takes the mound, the Giants usually win. San Francisco has won 13 of Webb’s last 14 starts and those wins have come by an average of 3.07 runs. Webb has a 1.64 ERA with a 0.96 WHIP in 60.1 innings since the All-Star break and his 3.38 xERA compared to his 2.56 ERA shows his success has been no fluke. Coors Field is infamous for being a pitcher’s nightmare because of the high altitude and wind that is usually blowing out which can change a fly-ball out to a run on the scoreboard, but Webb’s stats point to him having success in Colorado.

Chi Chi Gonzalez comes into this matchup with a 6.13 ERA and 6.38 xERA which means his high ERA is not bad fortune. He has thrown 16.2 innings since the All-Star break and has a 9.18 ERA with a 1.74 WHIP during that short time.

He will likely come out in the fourth or fifth inning, which is when the Rockies bullpen will be put into action and they rank 27th in ERA and 22nd in WHIP in the last 30 days. On the flip side, the Giants bullpen ranks 2nd in ERA and 3rd in WHIP during that span. The Giants have all the advantages in this game, so feel confident backing them by the -1.5 run line.

KBO Pick: Kiwoom Heroes vs Doosan Bears – Under 8.5 (-118) 5:30am ET (Wednesday morning)

Given Ariel Miranda’s overall dominance (2.38 ERA), it is hard to believe that the Heroes will be able to do much offensively. Miranda is 0-2 against Kiwoom, but his 2.37 ERA still shows that he is limiting them. He has just 2 starts against the Heroes, but has allowed only 2 runs over 13.0 innings. Dong-Hyeok Kim has yet to start against the Bears, but does have a couple of relief appearances against them. He has a total of 7.0 innings against the Bears and has yet to allow a single run. Because Kim has pitched well against Doosan, backing the under looks to be the right move.
