We have put together a four-pick cross-sport parlay that will take you right through Saturday night, including action from the NFL preseason, MLS, and MLB.
One pick is taken from each sport with 2 picks from the MLB. A winning ticket gives us a nice payout with odds at +852 with BetMGM: that’s more than 8/1! Let’s break down each of these 4 plays. Remember to gamble responsibly.
MLB pick: Atlanta Braves ML (-160) vs Washington Nationals, 6:05pm ET
Patrick Corbin has allowed 4 runs or more in 6 of his last 7 starts and that sums up his season. Corbin comes into this matchup with a 5.83 ERA and 5.84 xERA which means he has been pitching true to his stats and there is no sign of any improvement in his future. In his 2 starts against Atlanta this season he has allowed 9 runs on 11 hits including 3 home runs in 11.1 innings and to no surprise the Nationals lost both of those games. In fact, the Nationals have lost the last 5 games Corbin has started and 6 of his last 7 starts so he hasn’t exactly been Washington’s lucky charm. Corbin is in the midst of a massive decline so back the Braves and fade Corbin at all costs.
MLB pick: Los Angeles Dodgers -1.5 (-115) vs New York Mets, 7:10pm ET
Taijuan Walker was really good early in the season for New York, so good that you knew he had to regress. In his first 15 starts, he gave up 3 or more runs just 3 times. He has done so in each of his past 5, causing his ERA to spike. The Dodgers are 15-8 when Walker Buehler starts. L.A. still has more than enough offense even with some guys missing and there is a great chance Buehler holds the Mets to next to nothing. They get their at-bat in the 9th, too, so the run line is not as dangerous of a play. Take Los Angeles.
NFL Preseason Pick: Houston Texans vs Green Bay Packers -3 (-105), 8pm ET
Green Bay is expected to once again be a contender–now that Aaron Rodgers is back on board. Rodgers won’t play in this preseason tilt, but the Packers appear to have a capable backup in 2020 first-round draft pick Jordan Love. It should also be noted that there could actually be somewhat of a home-field advantage in this spot, even though it’s the preseason. The Lambeau Field faithful are always energized and they definitely will be on Saturday after being unable to attend games in 2020. Moreover, the NFC Championship ended on such a sour note that the Packers will want to give their fans something to cheer about…even if it’s a preseason win over the worst team in football. Take GB and give the field goal.
