We’ve put together a four-pick cross-sport parlay that will take you right through Tuesday night and Wednesday morning, including action from the Olympics and the MLB.

Two picks are taken from the MLB with one each from Olympic basketball and soccer tournaments. A winning ticket gives us a nice payout with odds at +900 with BetMGM; that’s 9/1! Let’s break down each of these four plays. Remember to gamble responsibly.

MLB pick: New York Yankees vs Tampa Bay Rays over 7.5 runs (-115), 7:10pm ET

In the last series between these teams, we also had a Jordan Montgomery vs Shane McClanahan matchup and we got an under in a 4-3 game. Expect the opposite on Tuesday night. The addition of Nelson Cruz by the Rays is especially valuable against left-handers. Take the over.

MLB pick: Detroit Tigers vs Minnesota Twins ML (-200), 8:10pm ET

Tyler Alexander has gone back and forth between the rotation and long relief for the Tigers, but he hasn’t been pushed as far as 4.0 innings in any of his 28 appearances this season. Alexander has faced Minnesota in 3 of his past 4 outings, and only the first one went well. The Tigers are clearly managing him to make sure he’s out of the game before letting things get too far out of hand, but that’s certainly not a winning formula for the worst bullpen in the American League. Stick with the money line, but take Minnesota with plenty of confidence.

Best Olympic basketball pick: USA vs Iran over 166.5 (-110), 12:40am ET Wednesday

Team USA did not look great in its first game against France, especially down the stretch when trying to close out the game, but lucky for them that should not be much of an issue against Iran. USA is nearly a 40-point favorite here and while it seems tough to expect them to cover that, it should at least lead to a high-scoring game. After their first loss I expect the USA to come out firing, really increasing the tempo. They should break the 100-point mark, and Iran has just enough shot-makers to cover the rest. Back the over.

Best Olympic soccer pick: Germany vs Ivory Coast over 2.5 goals (-115), 4am ET Wednesday

Germany should be the team pushing for a win, but it would be dangerous for Ivory Coast to try to defend for the whole game. Ivory Coast had an extra man after the 12th minute of its game against Brazil but Germany has scored five goals in two games and will be a big goal threat. Three of the four games involving these sides have produced at least three goals and taking over 2.5 goals in the game appeals.
