Matthew uses a variety of methods to handicap games, including stats, trends, injuries, and situational factors. 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 college basketball, the EPL, NHL, and NBA.

One pick is taken from each sport and a winning ticket gives us a nice payout with odds at +1236 with DraftKings — that’s more than 12/1! Let’s break down each of these plays.

EPL: Watford – Tie No Bet (+135) vs Brentford, 3pm ET

Brentford are having something of a reality check, taking just 5 points from their last 8 EPL games after an impressive start to the season, and allowing at least 2 goals in 6 of their last 7. They have a vulnerability about them which even a team like Watford could exploit. Take Watford not to lose with a tie-no-bet wager.

College Basketball: Loyola-Chicago Ramblers -4.5 (-105) vs Vanderbilt Commodores, 8pm ET

The Loyola Chicago Ramblers (8-2) will travel to face the Vanderbilt Commodores (5-3) in their second-to-last non-conference game heading into the bulk of Missouri Valley Conference play. The Ramblers start 5 upperclassmen including 4 seniors, and are led by senior guard Lucas Williamson, who is averaging 11.7 ppg and 5.0 rpg on 45.2% shooting from the field and 38.8% shooting from three. After losing back-to-back games to 2 ranked opponents, No. 19 Michigan State and No. 18 Auburn, Loyola Chicago enters on a 4-game win streak. The Ramblers are a threat to any team on any given night due to their experience and strong guard play. For that reason, take Loyola-Chicago to cover tonight’s spread.

NBA: Los Angeles Lakers vs Oklahoma City Thunder – Over 217 points (-110), 8:10pm ET

These teams’ first 2 meetings of the season ended with 238 and 211 points, while over the last 10 they are averaging 225.8 points. The over has cashed 7 times during that stretch. Oklahoma City has been putting up solid numbers offensively in 3 of their last 4 games, which is a good sign coming into a game against one of the worst road defenses in the NBA. The total has gone over in 5 of the last 6 games between them played in Oklahoma City and we should see another high-scoring game. Back the over.

NHL: Florida Panthers – 3-way ML (-190) vs Arizona Coyotes, 9:08pm ET

Florida has the best record in the NHL (17-4-4), while Arizona (5-18-2) has the worst. This game should be dominated by the Panthers. Offensively, they rank 2nd in expected goals per 60 minutes, goals scored and goals per game. The Coyotes rank last or next to last in all those categories. Defensively, these teams are technically ranked closer, but it’s still a wide gap. The Panthers rank 12th in goals allowed and goals against per game, whereas the Coyotes are in the bottom 4. The Panthers should control everything about this game from puck drop, so take them on the 3-way money line.
