Four-pick cross-sport parlay for Monday, May 3 (+1165): NHL, NBA, MLB, and EPL picks
A big Monday 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 a different sport and a winning ticket gives us a nice payout with odds at +1165 with FanDuel — more than 11/1! Let’s break down each of these four plays. Remember to gamble responsibly.
Best EPL Pick: West Ham United vs. Burnley, Both teams to score (-152), 3:15 p.m ET
Before the 1-0 loss to Chelsea, West Ham had tied 3-3 with Arsenal (having led 3-0), beaten Leicester and Wolves 3-2, and lost 3-2 away to Newcastle. The goals have also been flying in at both ends in Burnley’s matches and six of the last seven league games for them have seen both teams score. As a result, backing both teams to score looks a decent bet.

Best NHL Pick: Pittsburgh Penguins ML (-168) vs. Philadelphia Flyers, 7:08 p.m ET
The Pittsburgh Penguins are coming off of a two-game sweep over the Washington Capitals to take sole possession of first place in the East Division. On the other side, it has been a very rocky season for Philadelphia fans as they have now lost three straight games all to the New Jersey Devils. While it is true that the Penguins have struggled against the Flyers this season, they have much more to play for, so we will be backing them on the money line here.
Best NBA Pick: Golden State Warriors ML (+130) vs. New Orleans Pelicans, 7:40 p.m ET
Golden State has pretty much owned the Pelicans over the past few seasons, going 16-4 over the last 20 games. What’s also impressive is the fact that they have 17 wins in their last 20 visits to New Orleans. Against Western Conference teams they are 6-2 in their last eight games, and I think with the way Stephen Curry is playing there’s no stopping them in this one. For that reason, we will be backing Golden State on the money line.
Best MLB Pick: Toronto Blue Jays ML (+108) vs. Oakland Athletics, 9:40 p.m ET
The Jays’ Steven Matz lost his first game of the season in his last appearance. Toronto needs him to bounce back as they travel across the country to take on Oakland. It is likely that the Athletics’ hitters will not be too familiar with him due to him starting his career in the NL with the Mets.
The A’s are countering with Frankie Montas, who has never pitched against the Jays. He has a great arm but is giving up way too many hits. The Blue Jays’ bats are starting to heat up as shown in their series against the Braves, so backing them at plus money will be our play.
