Matthew uses a variety of methods to handicap games, including stats, trends, injuries, and situational factors. His goal is to consistently give out winners and will do everything he can to make his readers money.

We have put together a 4-pick cross-sport parlay that will take you right through Monday, including action from the NHL, NBA, and MLB. One pick is taken from each sport with a second pick from the MLB. A winning ticket would give us a nice payout with odds of +1039 at DraftKings. Let’s break down each of these plays.

NHL: New York Rangers vs Pittsburgh Penguins – Over 6 goals (-115), 7:00 pm ET

These teams nearly went over this total in the 1st period of Game 3, and have finished all 3 games of the series with 7 goals. The trend should continue, especially with Louis Domingue back in net.

That’s not to say Domingue will have to let up all 7 goals this time around. Sidney Crosby has 6 points in the series and Jake Guentzel has 4 goals himself, proving they can get to Igor Shesterkin as well. Although Shesterkin should bounce back with a better performance, Pittsburgh should still sneak a couple of pucks by him to help get over the total.

MLB: Tampa Bay Rays vs Los Angeles Angels ML (-135), 9:38 pm ET

First and foremost, the Rays absolutely spent their bullpen during the Mariners series. They had an entire bullpen day in game 2 of the series and went on to use them regularly in games 3 and 4. That could be detrimental traveling down to L.A. to face Shohei Ohtani and Mike Trout. They and the Angels will be continuing a nice, comfortable homestand with Noah Syndergaard on the mound. Thor may not have the lightning behind his pitches for strikeouts, but he is 2-1 on the year with a low 2.63 ERA. As long as Ohtani and Trout can provide the run support behind him, L.A. should be able to take game 1 of this series.

MLB: Colorado Rockies vs San Francisco Giants – Over 6.5 runs (-120), 9:45 pm ET

Oracle Park has done anything but live up to its pitcher’s park reputation. The Giants’ series with the Cardinals just had a game total of 20 and their series with the Nationals had game totals of 18, 12, and 16. Better yet, 2 of those 3 games were with their dominant pitchers of Alex Wood and Logan Webb on the mound. The reasoning for the low total is understandable, but should be taken advantage of.

NBA: Memphis Grizzlies vs Golden State Warriors – Over 223.5 points (-110), 10:00 pm ET

Ja Morant isn’t likely to play tonight, but Memphis averaged just under 118 points per game in 25 regular-season games without him. Golden State probably won’t shoot 63% from the field and 53% from 3-point range again in Game 4, but even if they come back down to earth by 10% on each, this total should still go over.

I don’t see the Grizzlies being held to under 100 points just because Morant isn’t playing. They’ve proved over a large enough sample size that they can play well without their star. Golden State will force Memphis to make shots to keep up in what is likely a must-win game for the Grizzlies. Take the over.
