Four-pick cross-sport parlay for Friday, May 14 (+1200): NHL, NBA, MLB, and EPL picks
A big Friday of sports is expected, which 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, MLB and EPL.
Each pick is taken from each sport and a winning ticket gives us a nice payout with odds at +1200 with BetMGM — more than 12/1! Let’s break down each of these four plays. Remember to gamble responsibly.
Best EPL Pick: Manchester City vs. Newcastle United, Both teams to score – Yes (-110), 3:00 p.m ET
Callum Wilson has been ruled out of this game with a hamstring injury, however the Magpies have the likes of Allan Saint-Maximin, Joe Willock, and Miguel Almiron carrying plenty of attacking threat. The Toon Army has scored 12 goals in their last six matches. Those goals have come against Spurs, Burnley, West Ham, Liverpool, and Leicester, so the goals are coming against some decent competition. Some cracks were exposed in Man City’s defense last week in a 2-1 loss to Chelsea, which is why we believe Newcastle can find the back of the net.

Best NHL Pick: Toronto Maple Leafs vs. Winnipeg Jets Under 6 Goals (-110), 8:08 p.m ET
As a team the Leafs have increased their focus on defense of late with a 2.0 goals against average over their last nine games and their penalty kill is at 91.7 percent. Toronto has a great third line that is playing a shutdown roll heading into the playoffs and they will be getting extra ice time as Sheldon Keefe will limit the top guys. The Jets are only averaging 2.0 goals per game over their last 11 and their big in-season trade acquisition Pierre-Luc Dubois has gone eight games without a point and has no goals in his last 16. They have stayed under the total number in four of their last five games, therefore, we like both teams to play a slow style of hockey tonight.

Best NBA Pick: Toronto Raptors vs. Dallas Mavericks Under 221.5 Points (-110), 9:10 p.m ET
The Raptors have averaged 99 points over their last three games. Four of their last five games against Western Conference opponents have finished under the total. This has also been the case in five of their last six visits to Dallas. For the Mavs, the under has cashed in nine of their last 10 against Atlantic Division opponents. For that reason, we will be backing the under.

Best MLB Pick: Washington Nationals vs. Arizona Dimondbacks Under 9 Runs (-115), 9:40 p.m ET
The Diamondbacks are near the top-10 in OPS against right-handed pitching on the season, but it is not often that a team matches up against a right-handed pitcher of a quality similar to Scherzer. Further, both of these teams rank in the bottom-half of baseball in ISO–a raw measure of a team’s power. It is unlikely that either team is going to spend significant time trotting around the bases in this one. If there is any concern on taking the under in this game, it is the bullpen of both of these teams. However, if both starters perform well, the bullpens will not be in the game long enough to be attacked for many runs.
