Saturday cross-sport parlay: 4-team multi-sport parlay at +807 odds including today's MLB, EPL, MLS and College Football picks and predictions
We have put together a 4-pick cross-sport parlay that will take you right through Saturday, including picks from the EPL, MLS, MLB and College Football. One pick is taken from each sport and a winning ticket would give us a very nice payout with odds of +807 at DraftKings Sportsbook.
Let’s break down each of these plays.
EPL pick today: Newcastle ML over Bournemouth (-225), 10:00 am ET
Newcastle has not claimed the points its performances have deserved so far, but the Magpies can secure a second EPL win of the season at home to Bournemouth today. Both teams have 7 points but there is a difference in quality and it could become evident in this game.
Bournemouth came from 2-0 behind to win 3-2 at Nottingham Forest, but the Cherries have the worst defensive record in the EPL after allowing 18 goals, and giving up an early goal at Newcastle might be the start of a tough game for their defense. For that reason, backing Newcastle to win and collect all 3 points looks to be the safest play for this parlay.

College Football pick today: Western Kentucky Hilltoppers +6.5 over Indiana Hoosiers (-110), 12:00 pm ET
While their new pieces have fit pretty nicely for Western Kentucky, the same can’t be said for Indiana. The Hoosiers brought in over a dozen new players from the transfer portal, including quarterback Connor Bazelak from Missouri. In the season opener, the Hoosiers averaged just 4.6 yards per play against Illinois and less than 1.5 yards per rush. Things didn’t get better in Week 2, as Indiana trailed 10-0 to Idaho — a middling FCS opponent — before rallying to knock off the Vandals.
This meeting was decided by 2 points last season, and that was before Indiana lost its quarterback, plus a ton of pieces on defense. Look for Hilltoppers to see consistent success in the passing game, and back them to cover against the inconsistent Hosiers.

MLB pick today: Chicago White Sox ML over Detroit Tigers (-155), 6:10 pm ET
The White Sox have had such a rocky season primarily due to injuries. That includes guys in the lineup and on the mound. Johnny Cueto will be getting the call for this game, and he has had his ups and downs. However, it’s been all up when it comes to facing the Tigers. He’s done so only once this season, but it was his most dominant start. Cueto pitched 8.0 scoreless innings, giving up just 5 hits.
Chicago will be facing Tigers lefty starter Eduardo Rodriguez. The one thing Chicago does best is hit lefties. They’re the 2nd-best lineup against them, ahead of the Dodgers, Braves and Yankees. Rodriguez has allowed 14 runs over his last 3 starts, so for that reason, backing the White Sox on the money line will be the play.
