Four-pick Cross-Sport Parlay for Friday, March 26th (+1374): NHL and NBA Picks
The Sweet 16 will get underway tomorrow, but there are still plenty of games to find value on until then. 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 and the NBA.
Two picks are taken from each sport and a winning ticket gives us a nice payout with odds at +1374 with FanDuel — more than 13/1! Let’s break down each of these four plays. Remember to gamble responsibly.
Best NHL Pick: Anaheim Ducks vs. St. Louis Blues Over 5.5 Goals (-112), 8 p.m ET
Any time two backup goalies are playing and both of their save percentages are under .900, there is a good chance for a high-scoring game. The Ducks are averaging 4.33 goals against over their last nine games, which will make Blues leading scorer David Perron very excited to add to his four points in his last three games. Again, because we are going to have two backups tonight, siding with the over will be our play.
Best NBA Pick: Miami Heat vs. Charlotte Hornets ML (-104), 8 p.m ET
Without Jimmy Butler and Goran Dragic, this Miami Heat team struggles a lot. Both were out against the Blazers last night and it’s unsure they will return tonight. Charlotte has won the last two meetings by 11 and eight points. They are in decent form overall, winning six of their last nine games and seven of eight at home. This including six of their last seven against Eastern Conference opponents. I’ll take the Hornets to win at home.
Best NBA Pick: Memphis Grizzlies +9.5 (-110) vs. Utah Jazz, 9 p.m ET
Although Utah is rolling at home, I do not see Memphis being a walkover here. The Grizzlies are 9-3 ATS in their last 12 games. They have been on a decent run against Western Conference teams, going 4-1 in their last five. For the season they are 24-17 ATS overall and 10-7 ATS on the road. At Utah they have covered five times in the last seven games. Utah will probably win, but I expect a close game possibly decided in the final few minutes.
Best NHL Pick: Winnipeg Jets ML (+108) vs. Calgary Flames, 10 p.m ET
The Jets are tied for first place in the North Division and are on a two-game winning streak. They have only allowed one goal and scored nine in their last two games. They have arguably one of the strongest top six cores in the NHL, which has allowed them to score 3.3 goals per game–eighth best in the league. In their last 10 games, the Flames are only averaging 2.3 goals per game and have only scored two goals in their last three. Take the Jets on the money line here.
