We have put together a 4-pick cross-sport parlay that will take you right through Saturday, including picks from the MLB and college football. Two picks are taken from each sport and a winning ticket would give us a very nice payout with odds of +947 at DraftKings Sportsbook.

Let’s break down each of these plays.

MLB pick today: Atlanta Braves ML over Philadelphia Phillies (-130), 4:05 pm ET

Kyle Wright will be getting the start for the Braves. Somehow he hasn’t faced the Phillies since the end of June, though he was dominant in that game, allowing just 1 run over 7.0 innings. The Braves have won 17 of his last 19 starts, and they should provide him with enough run support in this one.

The Braves will be hitting Phillies starter Bailey Falter. The youngster has a terrible matchup, given Atlanta has smashed lefties this season. They’re the 3rd-best lineup against them, and Falter was just pulled after 4.1 innings when he faced them in his most recent start. The Braves won that game by multiple runs, however; backing the Braves on the money line will be the play.

MLB pick today: New York Mets -1.5 over Oakland Athletics (-170), 4:07 pm ET

The Mets will start one of the best pitchers in the league, right-hander Jacob deGrom. He started the year on the IL, but he hasn’t missed a step since returning, going 5-2 in 9 starts with an ERA of 2.32. Even though this will only be his 4th start on the road, he’s been amazing away from Citi Field, as he has an ERA of 1.93.

The A’s will be giving the start to left-hander Ken Waldichuk. He has spent most of the season in the minors, and then got traded at the deadline. Since his call-up to the A’s in early September, he’s 0-2 in 4 starts with an ERA of 7.13. For that reason, backing the Mets on the run line will be the play.

College Football pick today: Ohio State Buckeyes -19.5 over Wisconsin Badgers (-105), 7:30 pm ET

After completing their non-conference schedules, the Wisconsin Badgers (2-1) and the #3 Ohio State Buckeyes (3-0) will begin Big Ten play when the Badgers travel to the Horseshoe in Columbus, Ohio. Tonight’s primetime showdown under the lights in Columbus will be Wisconsin’s first true road game and Ohio State’s fourth straight home game.

Considering the struggles Wisconsin had against its only Power 5 opponent (Washington State), the Badgers look to be completely overmatched offensively against the Buckeyes. Expect CJ Stroud to continue his Heisman bid, and for offensive coordinator Jim Knowles to create a game plan that successfully neutralizes running back Braelon Allen and exposes quarterback Graham Mertz. For that reason, backing Ohio State will be the play.

College Football pick today: Wyoming Cowboys +21.5 over BYU Cougars (-110), 10:15 pm ET

Before last weekend, the thought coming into this game was probably that BYU would obliterate Wyoming. That may no longer be the case following the Cowboys’ impressive performance in Week 3 compounded by the letdown that was witnessed from this Cougar squad against Oregon.

The Cougars have covered in just 2 of their last 6 contests and don’t match up particularly well with Wyoming. The Cowboys, meanwhile, are on a solid 6-3 run ATS in their last 9 games and have to be oozing with confidence following a huge upset win a week ago. That confidence should leak over into this matchup and propel Wyoming to a solid performance, whether it comes out victorious or not. Side with the Cowboys.
