Four-pick cross-sport parlay for Monday, April 12th (+1166): NHL, NBA, and MLB picks
The Masters is over and it is time to turn our attention to the other major sports. 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 day, including action from the NHL, NBA and MLB.
Each pick is taken from each sport with a second pick from the MLB. A winning ticket gives us a nice payout with odds at +1166 with FanDuel — more than 11/1! Let’s break down each of these four plays. Remember to gamble responsibly.
Best MLB Pick: Boston Red Sox vs. Minnesota Twins Over 9.5 Runs (-102), 2:10 p.m ET
Boston is crushing the ball right now and a lot of those hitters are going to be very familiar with J.A. Happ, who has spent a lot of time pitching in the American League East. Martin Perez doesn’t make anyone sweat and with the Twins bullpen struggles, we believe this game can get into double digits with ease.
Best NHL Pick: Toronto Maple Leafs ML (-144) vs. Montreal Canadiens, 7:00 p.m ET
The Toronto Maple Leafs are the hottest team in the NHL going 9-0-1 in their last 10 games to take back top spot in the North Division. In the Leafs’ last 10 games they are averaging 3.3 goals for per game and 33 shots per game. The Canadiens have lost four of their last five with an average of four goals against over those games. These two always play close hockey games but in the end, Toronto will likely be too much for the Canadiens to handle. Take the Maple Leafs.
Best MLB Pick: Chicago Cubs vs. Milwaukee Brewers ML (-126), 7:40 p.m ET
Chicago’s offense has been non-existent so far in 2021 as the Cubs rank dead-last in team batting average (.167 AVG) and on-base percentage (.265) through nine games. Milwaukee is the recommended side on Monday night as they have the edge in starting pitching, bullpen depth, and offense. Back the Brew Crew to notch their third straight win over the struggling Chicago offense.
Best NBA Pick: Chicago Bulls ML (+116) vs. Memphis Grizzlies, 9:10 p.m ET
The Bulls have consistently beaten up on the Grizzlies as they are 6-0 straight up in the last three years. Chicago also has the best two players in the game with Zach LaVine and Nikola Vucevic. We are projecting the Bulls to win by three points which gives their money line a lot of value. Take the Bulls to win straight up in this cross-conference game.
