You can bet on props and odds for the NBA Finals and MLB centered around games for Milwaukee and Phoenix sports markets.

The Phoenix Suns and Milwaukee Bucks will play Game 2 of the 2021 NBA Finals on Thursday night in Arizona. The Suns lead the series 1-0 after a 118-105 win in Game 1 earlier in the week. Since there’s also plenty of baseball to bet on in MLB on Thursday night, DraftKings Sportsbook is offering fun cross-sport parlays you can bet on in eligible markets.

The theme is parlays in same city markets. So you’ll be able to bet on Suns props teamed with the Arizona Diamondbacks, who take on the Colorado Rockies this afternoon at 3:40 p.m. ET. The Bucks props will come from the Milwaukee market, with the Milwaukee Brewers taking on the Cincinnati Reds at 8:10 p.m. ET tonight.

There are a few appealing spots for the Suns props. Deandre Ayton had 19 boards in Game 1 and his odds to outperform his prop line of 12.5 and get 15+ boards isn’t bad. David Peralta to get 3+ total bases may be tough but the D-Backs are facing Chi Chi Gonzalez, who has allowed 13 HRs this season. CP3 to get 10+ assists while Christian Walker drives in 2+ runs at +850 isn’t bad either. The issues is Walker hasn’t done much this season and rarely has more than 1 RBI. Devin Booker 30+ points and Eduardo Escobar to go yard at +900 feels like a good deal. Escobar has 19 HRs on the season and 2 in 25 ABs at Coors this year.

On the Milwaukee side, give me Giannis Antetokounmpo to score 30+ points and Christian Yelich to go yard at +1200. I’m expecting a relatively large performance from Giannis in Game 2 or else the Bucks are in trouble. Reds SP Tyler Mahle is great at racking up Ks but he’s also prone to allowing the long ball.
