Four-pick cross-sport parlay for Tuesday, June 8 (+1433): NHL, NBA and MLB picks
A big Tuesday of sports is expected, which means it is time to have some fun and look for some of the best bets across all the different sports and pile them into one parlay. We’ve put together a four-pick cross-sport parlay which will take you right through the night, including action from the NHL, NBA and MLB.
One pick is taken from each sport with a second pick from the MLB. A winning ticket gives us a nice payout with odds at +1433 with BetMGM — that’s 14/1! Let’s break down each of these four plays. Remember to gamble responsibly.
Best MLB pick: Los Angeles Dodgers -1.5 (-110) vs. Pittsburgh Pirates, 7:05pm ET
Walker Buehler is having a very strong season for the Dodgers. He is 4-0 and backed by a strong offense, so fading him is really difficult. His splits are a little better on the road but really he is playable in all situations.
JT Brubaker has made us some cash in the past but this is just not a good matchup. We would need him to out-pitch Buehler, which is unlikely, and for the Bucs to score enough, which is another hard thing to predict. Plus, the Dodgers are second in scoring and third in ERA, so we like their chances to beat Pittsburgh comfortably tonight on the run line.
Best NBA pick: Atlanta Hawks vs. Philadelphia 76ers over 223.5 points (-115), 7:30pm ET
The over is 7-3 in the Hawks’ last ten games against opponents with winning records, 5-1 in their last six against opponents with winning percentages over .600, and 6-2 in their last eight after scoring more than 125 points in their previous outing. It is also 4-0 in the 76ers’ last four overall and 6-1 in their last seven at home. Additionally, the over is 7-3 in the last ten meetings between the teams and 4-1 in Atlanta’s last five at Philadelphia. We are expecting yet another shootout and will be backing the over.
Best NHL pick: Vegas Golden Knights ML (+120) vs. Colorado Avalanche, 9pm ET
Avalanche head coach Jared Bednar had to call out his players for their poor play heading into Game 4. Outside of their top line, which is one of the best in the NHL, their forwards do not produce much offense. That lack of depth, especially without Nazem Kadri, has been exploited heavily in the last two games. The Avalanche have a solid defensive core, but they are young and the veteran forwards of the Golden Knights are taking advantage of that. They also have a goaltender who, although a Vezina Trophy candidate for the regular season, has not proved he can win a playoff series against a very good hockey team like the Golden Knights. We believe the Knights’ momentum will carry over on the road and will back them on the money line tonight.
Best MLB pick: Arizona Diamondbacks vs. Oakland Athletics -1.5 (-105), 9:40pm ET
When Chris Bassitt has started at home, his ERA is 2.97 with a 0.960 WHIP and he is holding hitters to a .211 batting average. The Oakland offense has been mashing at the plate recently and they have a .304 average in the last seven days which is the third-best average in the league. Before a 3-1 loss on Sunday, the Athletics had scored at least five runs in their previous five games and they usually give Bassitt a lot of run support as they average 7.5 runs with an average winning margin of four runs in his last four starts. For that reason, we like Oakland on the run line.
