His goal is to consistently give out winners and will do everything he can to make his readers money.

We have put together a 4-pick cross-sport parlay that will take you right through Friday, including action from the EPL, NBA, NHL and MLB. One pick is taken from each sport with a second pick from the NBA. A winning ticket would give us a nice payout with odds of +1202 at DraftKings. Let’s break down each of these plays.

NHL: Seattle Kraken vs Minnesota Wild -1.5 (-115), 8:05 pm ET

Minnesota is one of just 3 teams that are averaging over 4 goals per game on home ice. Their future face-of-the-franchise Kirill Kaprizov is closing in on a 100-point season. Fellow skater Kevin Fiala has also stepped up to be a great wingman to Kaprizov. He recorded a 4-point game against the Sharks on Sunday and was a part of both goals in the shutout win against the Canadiens on Tuesday.

As for Seattle, they don’t have a single skater even close to averaging a point per game. They just pulled off a massive upset against the Avalanche; however, replicating that performance on the road against a Wild team still fighting for playoff seeding should prove too tall a task.

MLB: Chicago White Sox ML (-110) vs Minnesota Twins, 8:10 pm ET

The White Sox travel to Minnesota to begin a 3 game series against the Twins in hopes to end a 4-game losing streak in which they were outscored 28-8. A series against the 5-8 Twins might be exactly what Chicago needs in order to get things back on track as they send Michael Kopech out for the start. Kopech has looked great over his first 2 outings, only allowing 2 runs on 3 hits over 9.0 innings with a 2.94 xERA. Kopech should fare well against a Twins team that only mustered up 4 runs in 3 games against the Royals. For that reason, side with the White Sox and look for them to snap their 4-game losing skid.

NBA: Milwaukee Bucks -2 (-115) vs Chicago Bulls, 8:30 pm ET

While Chicago has shown the ability to limit some of the Bucks’ offense, they still have no answer for Giannis Antetokounmpo. Milwaukee could use some more from Khris Middleton, who sprained his MCL in Game 2 and is listed as day-to-day.

I’d bet against Chicago slowing them down for three consecutive games. The Bucks have been much better on the road this year against the number going 23-18 and have covered six of their last eight on the road during the regular season. For that reason, backing the Bucks is worth a play here.

NBA: Phoenix Suns vs New Orleans Pelicans +1.5 (-105), 9:30 pm ET

New Orleans got themselves back into the series with a surprise win the other night. Now they are at home with a real chance to put the Suns in a bind in a series most thought would be a sweep.

Even with the change of venue and Devin Booker out, the Suns are still small favorites for Game 3. They are the far superior defensive team, but if that gets away from them the way it did at home in Game 2, they are in trouble. The Pelicans have a number of experienced scorers in CJ McCollum, Brandon Ingram and Jonas Valanciunas and they can score different ways so they are going to be a tough out. They are suddenly a dangerous underdog and worth a shot in this first game of the series in New Orleans.
