Selection Sunday is getting closer and closer, but there are still plenty of game to find value on for Friday. 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 college basketball.

Each pick is taken from a different sport with a second College Basketball pick. A winning ticket gives us a nice payout with odds at +1326 with BetMGM — more than 13/1! Let’s break down each of these four plays. Remember to gamble responsibly.

Best College Basketball Pick: Ohio State Buckeyes vs. Purdue Boilermakers +1.5 (-110), 2 p.m ET

This number looks all wrong. The only advantage the Buckeyes have is that they have beaten the Boilermakers during the regular season. The most recent of those games was on January 19th though and it closed with OSU winning by two. A lot has happened since then with these teams passing each other in the Big Ten standings. Just as critical, the Boilermakers did not play yesterday because they earned a double-bye. A fresh Purdue team with all of their size should get the cover today.

Best College Basketball Pick: Seton Hall -3.5 vs. Georgetown Hoyas, 6 p.m ET

I really like Seton Hall again in this spot. Georgetown has been impressive to win a couple of games but they don’t have as much talent as Seton Hall right now. Remember the reason the Pirates have been so frustrating is because of high expectations. Now that everything is on the line they will step up. With the small number, they don’t have to dominate; although they should win going away.

Best NBA Pick: Denver Nuggets vs. Memphis Grizzlies +3 (-110), 8 p.m ET

Memphis kicked off their second half with an easy win over Washington. It was their fourth cover in a row thanks to a dominating game by center Jonas Valanciunas, who had 29 points and 20 rebounds. Those numbers probably slide a little but they need him to be a threat so Jokic can’t coast. In typical Memphis fashion, they got diverse scoring with five other players scoring in double figures. Because of their balanced scoring, we like them to hang around with Denver and keep this game close.

Best NHL Pick: Ottawa Senators vs. Edmonton Oilers -1.5 (-105), 9 p.m ET

The Edmonton Oilers absolutely dominated the Ottawa Senators on Wednesday night. Edmonton won 7-1 in a game that was over in the first period. Ottawa has a terrible away record of 4-13-0 with no signs of turning it around. Unbelievably, the Senators have a minus-40 goal differential on the road. Their goaltending and special teams on the road have been a joke. They are posting a .856 SVP, their penalty kill is only successful 66 percent of the time, and offensively their powerplay is only working at 9.1 percent. With Ottawa showing no signs of competing on the road, we will back the Edmonton puck line.
