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, and MLB.

Each pick is taken from a different sport with a second pick from the MLB. A winning ticket gives us a nice payout with odds at +1171 with BetMGM — more than 11/1! Let’s break down each of these four plays. Remember to gamble responsibly.

Best MLB Pick: Chicago White Sox ML (-105) vs. New York Yankees, 7:05 p.m ET

Jordan Montgomery was pitching well for the Yankees for the most part until his last start. This Chicago lineup is definitely not one you want to mess with when you are not going great because they are so good at putting the ball in play. Carlos Rodon on the other hand, has been lights out up until his last start. Look for him to bounce back and take Chicago to win this game.

Best MLB Pick: Houston Astros vs. Texas Rangers ML (+110), 8:05 p.m ET

Since getting shelled on Opening Day, Kyle Gibson has bounced back and pitched tremendously. He has pitched eight straight quality starts, and is now 3-0 with an ERA of 2.32.

The Astros are calling up 25-year-old Tyler Ivey to make his Major League debut. Ivey had never pitched above Double-A prior to this season and struggled in his two outings in Triple-A before his call-up. This pitching matchup feels like the best chance Texas will have over their in-state rivals after losing the first four times they played this year. For that reason, we will back Texas.

Best NBA Pick: Memphis Grizzlies vs. Golden State Warriors Under 221.5 Points, 9:00 p.m ET

Both of these teams have strong cultures that emphasize defense, so you don’t have to worry about effort. In that regular-season finale between these teams, Ja Morant shot only 7/21 from the field. Even with Curry scoring 46, there were still only 214 total points in that game. As such, there’s no way we should expect a total in the 220s. The under is also 6-1 in Memphis’ last seven contests and buckets will be at a premium in this elimination game.

Best NHL Pick: Winnipeg Jets vs. Edmonton Oilers ML (-160), 9:08 p.m ET

Winnipeg won Game one 4-1 but the last two goals were empty-net goals. As a team they are averaging less than 2.5 goals per game over their last 13 and their only hope of winning is keeping the top guns on the Oilers to zero points. We do not think they will be able to pull this off, so backing Edmonton to have a bounce back performance will be our play in Game two.
