Four-pick cross-sport parlay for Saturday (+1018 odds): MLS, college basketball, NBA, and NHL
One pick is taken from each sport and a winning ticket would give us a nice payout with odds of +1018 at DraftKings Sportsbook. Let’s break down each of these plays.
MLS: CF Montreal vs Atlanta United ML (-150), 4:00 pm ET
The home team has dominated this matchup historically, going 6-1-2 with the only home loss coming in a 2-1 Atlanta victory at Montreal in 2018. Montreal has now lost 5 straight road games and failed to win in the last 9 away from home. Atlanta has gone 7-1-2 in its last 10 home games and is not expected to slow down today. The number of games and travel seems to be starting to wear on Montreal and Atlanta can fully exploit the visitors’ tired legs.

NBA: Milwaukee Bucks vs Minnesota Timberwolves – Under 244.5 points (-110), 5:10 pm ET
This is a monster total, but assuming that everyone is healthy and playing, it’s not unreasonable. However, the Timberwolves have gone under in 5 of their last 6 games. This game may also have a playoff-like atmosphere, and the defenses should tighten up. Take the under.

NHL: New York Rangers vs Tampa Bay Lightning 3-way ML (-125), 8:05 pm ET
This potential Eastern Conference final matchup will see the best of the best, Andrei Vasilevskiy in net for the Lightning. The 2019 Vezina Trophy (best goalie) winner has the most wins in the NHL this season at 32 and is a candidate to win it again this season. The addition of Nikita Kucherov back into the Tampa Bay lineup has been a huge jolt to their offense, and they have climbed to 7th in the league in goals per game at 3.37. Tampa Bay is coming back home after a tough 5-game, 10-day Canadian road trip. The Lightning have a 19-5-4 record in Amalie Arena and should overcome the Rangers with their full complement of weapons.

College basketball: Memphis Tigers +9.5 (-105) vs Gonzaga Bulldogs, 9:40 pm ET
Gonzaga almost covered the number against an undermanned Georgia State team despite trailing in the 2nd half, but overall this Bulldogs team does not look like the finished product at the moment. The size and athleticism of Memphis can keep them in this game, especially on the defensive end, so backing the Tigers to cover is the play.
