Four-pick cross-sport parlay for Monday, April 5th (+1121): NHL, MLB, NBA and College Basketball picks
After a crazy NCAA Tournament, we have finally made it to the Championship game. 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 night, including action from the NHL, NBA, MLB and NCAA basketball tournament.
Each pick is taken from a different sport and a winning ticket gives us a nice payout with odds at +1121 with FanDuel — more than 11/1! Let’s break down each of these four plays. Remember to gamble responsibly.
Best MLB Pick: St. Louis Cardinals ML (+100) vs. Miami Marlins, 6:40 p.m ET
For the Marlins, Trevor Rogers will be on the mound. He had a rough rookie campaign in 2020, allowing 19 earned runs in 28.0 innings of work. He posted a 6.11 ERA and 4.33 FIP in 2020, but also 39 Ks. Even though they struggled to score on Sunday, the Cardinals’ lineup looks too strong. We do not believe that Rodgers will be able to shut them down, so backing St. Louis will be our play.
Best NBA Pick: Detroit Pistons -2.5 (-114) vs. Oklahoma City Thunder, 7:10 p.m ET
The Thunders injury troubles have gotten worse with the news that Isaiah Roby will be out due to a concussion. He is joining a long list of players who have been unavailable for them including Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Darius Bazley, Luguentz Dort and Al Horford. Being so shorthanded has led to two straight losses, a 37-point one against the Suns and a 48-point loss to the Trail Blazers. While the Pistons are not exactly great, the injury news for the Thunder is enough for us to back the Pistons tonight.
Best NHL Pick: Vegas Golden Knights ML (-142) vs. St. Louis Blues, 8:08 p.m ET
St. Louis has recently fallen out of a playoff spot for the first time all season. With a -15 goal differential, playing against a Vegas team that has a +29 goal differential will prove a serious challenge that we do not believe St. Louis will be ready for. The Golden Knights’ recent success against this Blues team is enough for us to back them on the money line here.
Best College Basketball Pick: Baylor Bears +4.5 (-110) vs. Gonzaga Bulldogs, 9:20 p.m ET
Gonzaga has enough talent and experience to deal with anything, but the pressure of completing an undefeated season combined with Saturday’s energy-sapping contest certainly will not help. Now the Zags have to face the only other team in the land that is just as talented as they are on paper. Gonzaga is 2-5 ATS in its last seven after scoring more than 90 points in its previous outing. The Bears are 4-0 ATS in their last four overall and 6-1 ATS in their last seven as underdogs. Take Baylor and the points in what should be a crazy game.
