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.

With the Final Four scheduled for tomorrow, we have to look to other sports to find value. This means it is time to have some fun and look for some of the best bets across all the different sports and pile them into one parlay. We’ve put together a four-pick cross-sport parlay which will take you right through the night, including action from the NHL, NBA and MLB.

Each pick is taken from a different sport with a second pick from the NHL. A winning ticket gives us a nice payout with odds at +1865 with FanDuel — more than 18/1! Let’s break down each of these four plays. Remember to gamble responsibly.

Best NHL Pick: Washington Capitals vs. New Jersey Devils ML (+134), 7:08 p.m ET

The Devils have proven they are capable of the big upset, as they took down the Bruins and the Penguins twice last month. Mackenzie Blackwood is the type of goalie who can get in the zone and completely steal a game from his opponents. Just ask the Bruins, who recently peppered him with 40 shots on goal only to lose the game 1-0. This young Devils team should be motivated to get their first win vs. the Capitals this year and will use their fresh legs to out-hustle the opposition.

Best MLB Pick: Los Angeles Dodgers -1.5 (-162) vs. Colorado Rockies, 8:40 p.m ET

Backing the Dodgers is always going to mean sacrificing some value for common sense. They are the best team in baseball and backing them off a loss makes total sense. Trevor Bauer is likely their best pitcher but Clayton Kershaw got the start yesterday to not create any unnecessary unrest. We are very confident that Bauer can out-pitch Senzatela and help get the Dodgers their first win of the year. However, the only way to back the Dodgers in this game would be to take them on the run line.

Best NHL Pick: Calgary Flames vs. Edmonton Oilers -1.5 (+172), 9:00 p.m ET

The Calgary Flames have lost five of their last six and Darryl Sutter has not improved this team since stepping behind the bench. In their last eight games they are averaging only two goals and are allowing 3.38. This game means more to Edmonton and they will be looking to bounce back after a loss to Montreal. Take the Oilers -1.5.

Best NBA Pick: Los Angeles Lakers vs. Sacramento Kings -4 (-110), 10:10 p.m ET

Since the injury to LeBron James, the Lakers have played two road games. They lost both by 17 points, and without these players tonight, it could be a real challenge for them to improve on that here. Sacramento’s Tyrese Haliburton missed the first game these two played this season, where the Kings were able to beat a Lakers team without James and Anthony Davis 123-120. The introduction of Haliburton here, who is averaging over 15 points per game over the last week, should help propel the Kings to a much more comfortable win tonight.
