Four-pick cross-sport parlay for Friday, May 7 (+975): 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 +975 with FanDuel — more than 9/1! Let’s break down each of these four plays. Remember to gamble responsibly.
Best EPL Pick: Newcastle United vs. Leicester City -1 (+115), 3:00 p.m ET
Newcastle is yet to secure their Premier League safety and they could be pushed closer to danger by highflying Leicester. The Foxes have dominated the Magpies in recent meetings and will be confident of solidifying their claims for a Champions League spot. Leicester have lost just two of their last eight, so we will be backing them to win comfortably.
Best NHL Pick: Philadelphia Flyers vs. Washington Capitals ML (-196), 7:08 p.m ET
The Capitals have won five of their last seven games overall and have a 15-7-3 record on home ice. They have dominated this Flyers team all season as well, beating them in five of the six head-to-head games this year. On the other side, the Flyers are crawling to the finish line, losing four of their last five games. Their top-tier players are just not performing this season hence why they will not be in the postseason.
Best MLB Pick: Arizona Diamondbacks vs. New York Mets ML (-142), 7:10 p.m ET
David Peterson might not be one of the more well-known starters in the National League, but the Mets’ lefty can pitch. Teams continue to stack their lineups with right-handed hitters against Peterson, and he continues to put them away with nasty down-and-in sliders. He struck out eight Phillies last Sunday and punched out 10 against the same lineup three weeks prior.
The Mets will face Zac Gallen, who’s been excellent but has just seven career wins in 31 starts due mainly to lack of run support. The Diamondbacks’ offense are in a worse drought than the Mets, so backing New York is going to be our play.
Best NBA Pick: Los Angeles Lakers vs. Portland Trail Blazers -8.5 (-106), 10:10 p.m ET
Injuries have obviously hampered LA and as a result, they’ve gone 2-7 SU in their last nine games and covered the spread only once in their last four. Western Conference teams have beaten them in five of their last six games, which resulted in a rapid drop in the standings. On the other side, Portland has been keeping the pressure on LA with five wins in their last six games. Damien Lillard is playing out of his mind right now and with a much healthier side, we will be backing the Trail Blazers to win this game comfortably.
