Four-pick cross-sport parlay for Friday, April 30th (+1241): NHL, NBA, and MLB picks
While the NFL Draft will continue tonight, do not forget that there are a ton of other sports still to bet on. 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 day, including action from the NHL, NBA, and MLB.
Each pick is taken from each sport with a second pick from the MLB. A winning ticket gives us a nice payout with odds at +1241 with FanDuel — more than 12/1! Let’s break down each of these four plays. Remember to gamble responsibly.
Best NHL Pick: Winnipeg Jets ML (+100) vs. Montreal Canadiens, 7:08 p.m ET
The Jets have lost five in a row, but all five losses have been against Toronto and Edmonton who are the top two teams in the division. However, they are 16-8-1 on the road and three games away might be just what the doctor ordered. Montreal has lost four in their last five games and will be playing their fifth game in their last eight days. Jake Allen will still be in net for the injured Carey Price and he has a .896 save percentage over his last five games. It is time for the Jets to play like they can and in Montreal is the perfect spot.
Best NBA Pick: Atlanta Hawks vs. Philadelphia 76ers Over 220.5 Points (-110), 7:10 p.m ET
The Sixers have scored 121 and 127 points in their last two and the offensive flow is there with Simmons finally back at the point guard position. The total has gone over in six of the last ten meetings with the two teams averaging 230 points in those 10 games. Atlanta gets some offensive firepower back in Bogdan Bogdanovic and they can be expected to go over 100 in this one after a poor showing on Wednesday. With both sides ranking in the top 15 when it comes to offensive efficiency, the smart play is to go over the total.
Best MLB Pick: Boston Red Sox -1.5 (+105) vs. Texas Rangers, 8:05 p.m ET
Going into Thursday’s game, the Rangers were just 4-8 at home and their offense was hitting .197, the second worst mark in the league. They also average just 2.67 runs at home (the worst mark in the league) and have found no confidence when playing at home. The Rangers are starting Kohei Arihara, who has not been great this season and has been failing at getting hitters to chase pitches. On the other side, Boston will start their ace, Nathan Eovaldi. The Red Sox have been excellent on the road this season and we like their bats to wake back up tonight.
Best MLB Pick: Kansas City Royals vs. Minnesota Twins ML (-140), 8:10 p.m ET
Brady Singer will get the start for the Kansas City Royals and will be someone we look to fade tonight. Singer pitched to a mediocre 4.06 ERA in his rookie year of 2020, but comes in with a home run rate, walk rate, and WHIP nearly identical to his percentages from last year. Against a powerful lineup led by Byron Buxton we believe he’ll struggle to get out of trouble once he gets into it. Minnesota might not be the best team in the American League, but they are certainly better than their record and we like them to win on Friday night.
