Matthew has been with Pickswise for a while now, covering a wide variety of sports. His main passions are college football and UFC, and those are the sports he has covered the most. 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 put in the research to try and achieve this.

It is almost the weekend, but there are plenty of games to look forward to on Friday night. 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 NBA, NHL, and college basketball.

Each pick is taken from a different sport with one additional pick from the NHL. A winning ticket gives us a nice payout with odds at +1322 with DraftKings — more than 13/1! Let’s break down each of these four plays. Remember to gamble responsibly.

Best College Basketball Pick: Purdue Boilermakers +2 (-112) vs. Penn State Nittany Lions, 7 p.m ET

Penn State has proven to be feisty at home this season. They are coming off a win, but beating Nebraska on the road by three is hardly impressive. John Harrar provides some size for the Nittany Lions, but overall this is a small team. Penn State does like to play with some pace, but they are not an efficient offensive team so it is not a great style for them when the shots are not falling. They are not great on the glass, either, so they can get beat up inside. I don’t like this matchup for PSU at all.

Best NBA Pick: Utah Jazz -6.5 (-110) vs. Miami Heat, 8 p.m ET

The Heat will put up a fight at home, there’s no question about that. But, with the status of a couple of their key players up in the air, it’s hard to consider backing them here. Utah is 5-1 ATS in the last six in Miami and has covered in the last four meetings overall. Confidence is high after they beat the defending champs and I think they can sweep the season series here.

Best NHL Pick: Los Angeles Kings ML (+148) vs. Minnesota Wild, 8 p.m ET

This will be the fifth matchup between the Wild and the Kings this year, with each team earning six points so far. With not much separating these two teams at the moment, it presents a good opportunity to take the plus money on the Kings. The Kings also have a large advantage on the powerplay, scoring at a 25 percent rate compared to the Wild’s 9.0 percent. For a team that has won six straight games and beat the Wild 4-0 in the last head-to-head meeting, it is simply too much value to pass up on Los Angeles. Look for the Kings to get the win thanks to the stellar goaltending that they have been receiving lately.

Best NHL Pick: Colorado Avalanche ML (-175) vs. Arizona Coyotes, 9 p.m ET

Colorado has aspirations of being Stanley Cup champions but has struggled in the tough West Division. Nathan MacKinnon has only four goals this season but has scored twice in his last four games and looks to be turning the corner. Linemate Mikko Rantanen is also starting to get hot with four points in his last four games, but their strength this year comes from the back end. Cale Makar, Samuel Girard, and Devon Toews have combined for 15 power-play points to help their PP get to 23.1 percent on the year. Colorado is due for a breakout game to get its season headed in the right direction, and the Coyotes are the perfect team to steamroll.
