We have put together a 4-pick cross-sport parlay that will take you right through Friday, including action from the NBA, NHL, and MLB.

One pick is taken from each sport with a second pick from the MLB. and a winning ticket would give us a nice payout with odds of +880 at DraftKings. Let’s break down each of these plays.

MLB: Minnesota Twins vs Boston Red Sox ML (-125), 2:10 pm ET

With a day of rest, there should be a full complement of bats for Boston. The Twins may have made the biggest offseason signing with Carlos Correa, but it would be quite impressive to outperform Boston’s entire lineup. He and Minnesota will have to do so against Nick Pivetta.

Pivetta didn’t have a first start for the record books, but the Twins haven’t exactly been lighting up scoreboards either. They have just 20 runs on the season. Gary Sanchez was also brought in to help produce, but it seems like he’s been doing more striking out than driving in runs. With his 9 strikeouts and Byron Buxton’s 10, Pivetta should be in store for his first win of 2022.

NHL: Winnipeg Jets vs Florida Panthers 3-way ML, (-180) 7:05 pm ET

There’s a chance Winnipeg will still be missing 2 of their best skaters in Mark Scheifele and Blake Wheeler. Kyle Connor was able to hold the team together against the Canadiens and Senators, but the Panthers are a whole different beast. They’ve averaged the highest goals per game throughout the season, and are an entire tier above the rest when at home.

Florida scores a league best 4.68 goals per game on home ice; that’s a huge gap above the Avalanche in 2nd with 4.14 goals per game at home. When these teams last met, the Panthers came out with a 5-3 victory. Now with the added skater of Claude Giroux, Florida should have no issues repeating that performance at home.

NBA: Atlanta Hawks vs Cleveland Cavaliers – Over 223 Points (-110), 7:35 pm ET

If there was ever a correlating bet situation, this is it. Hawks and the over or Cavs and the under. That’s how the 4 regular-season meeting went. Atlanta continues to score at a torrid pace, averaging more than 120 points per game in their last 10. If Cleveland’s defense was playing better, they’d have a chance to slow down the Hawks. The only game that went under in the regular-season meetings was the very first one during the opening week of the season and that posted total was 223.5. In fact, all of the regular season totals were under 230, which is a very good number for the Hawks to go over.

MLB: Houston Astros ML (-120) vs Seattle Mariners, 9:40 pm ET

Alex Bregman and Michael Brantley have been seeing the ball well to start the season, but Jose Altuve needs to find his groove. It’s only a matter of time for a hitter of his caliber, but once he does, that trio will be one of the best in the league. Similarly, Houston also has the best cumulative ERA so far this season. With an extra day of rest, that ERA should remain steady. Whether Seattle puts Marco Gonzales on the mound or not, it looks to be a long day for an exhausted Mariners’ staff traveling from Chicago.
