I'm an editor here at Pickswise who was raised in a household full of sports fanatics. Since I unfortunately never had LeBron James' jumping ability I wasn't able to make it to the NBA, and chose writing about sports as the next best thing. An avid sports bettor myself, I'm excited to get to write about the industry as it gets set to take off across the country. Buckle up.

We have put together a four-pick cross-sport parlay on Tuesday that includes action from Major League Baseball, the NBA playoffs, and the NHL playoffs.

One pick is taken from each of the sports plus a second pick from the MLB slate. A winning ticket gives us a nice payout with odds at +893 with BetMGM. Let’s break down each of these four plays. Remember to gamble responsibly.

Best MLB pick: Tampa Bay Rays ML vs. Boston Red Sox (-110)

Boston is starting Eduardo Rodriguez, and in his last seven starts he’s got an ERA of 8.55. Boston’s bullpen has also been pretty shaky. Tampa will open with Andrew Kittredge and then turn to Ryan Yarbrough, who have both been very solid this season. The Rays have a pretty big pitching advantage here. Tampa is entering this one on a bit of a skid, so now is the time to buy-low. The Red Sox are up a half-game on Tampa in the AL East, but that doesn’t tell the full story. The Rays’ run differential is nearly 40 runs better (+73 vs. +34), so it’s clear Boston has been getting a bit lucky. That luck will likely run out.

Best MLB pick: Chicago Cubs -1.5 (-105) vs. Cleveland Indians

The Cubs have an even bigger edge on the mound. After a rough month of April in which he went 1-3 with a 7.54 ERA, Chicago starter Kyle Hendricks has found his groove on the mound. Hendricks went 4-1 with a 2.67 ERA in five May starts, and he is 4-0 with a 2.96 ERA through four starts so far in June. He has earned the win in seven consecutive starts, and he has allowed just five hits in his last 12.0 innings of work.  He will have a favorable matchup in this game going up against a Cleveland offense that is 26th in the league with a .227 batting average. The Indians, on the other hand, will start youngster Eli Morgan–who has given up 13 hits and nine runs in only 6.1 innings through two starts.

Best NHL pick: Vegas Golden Knights vs. Montreal Canadiens (-240)

The series is headed back to Vegas tied up at 2-2. The Golden Knights have all the momentum after winning an overtime thriller in Game 4. During the regular season, the Knights had an incredibly impressive home record of 21-5-2, while Montreal went 11-10-7 on the road. With three of the four games separated by just one goal, bettors should stay away from the puck line in this series. Both teams’ netminders have been doing an incredible job to keep these games low-scoring and close. This could be a close game, but there’s no denying Vegas is the better team. They have out-shot and out-scored Montreal in the series so far. Take the Knights on the money line.

Shea Theodore and Mark Stone were two of Vegas' standout performers in the regular season.

Best NBA playoffs pick: Suns -6 vs. Clippers (-110)

We are wrapping things up with Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals. Sunday’s Game 1 between the Clippers and Suns revealed quite a few things. Paul George continued his stellar play with 35 points, including seven threes. Reggie Jackson added 24 along with six rebounds and the Clippers made 20 threes as a team, but that still it wasn’t enough to steal one on the road. Even when they’re playing at their best, they can’t beat this Phoenix team on the road without Kawhi Leonard. In their last eight games the Suns are 8-0 ATS, and they certainly don’t look like they’re missing Chris Paul too much. Phoenix should take a commanding 2-0 lead.
