We have put together a 4-pick cross-sport parlay that will take you right through Saturday, including action from college basketball, the NHL, and NBA.

One pick is taken from each sport with a second pick from college basketball. A winning ticket gives us a nice payout with odds at +1074 with DraftKings Sportsbook — that’s more than 10/1! Let’s break down each of these plays.

College Basketball: Memphis Tigers vs Houston Cougars -10.5 (+105), 3:30 pm ET

The Cougars hold opponents to 53.1 ppg on an astounding 33.2% shooting from the field in their home games and have held their previous 5 home opponents to an average of 53.2 ppg. Memphis comes into this game on a 4-game winning streak, but finds itself in a tough spot facing Houston off a loss. Coach Kelvin Sampson always seems to have his team ready to play after a loss, especially when the Cougars return home after a losing on the road. In fact, since the start of the 2019-2020 season, Houston has won by double digits in 7 out of 9 home games that followed a road loss. Take the Cougars.

College Basketball: DePaul Blue Demons vs Providence Friars -9.5 (+100), 6:30 pm ET

Providence has been the most impressive team in the Big East, compiling a 10-1 conference record and currently running a 7-game win streak into the home stretch of the regular season. The Friars are undefeated at home this season and Javon Freeman-Liberty will be seriously missed by DePaul in this game. Providence has the 52nd-ranked scoring defense in the country, holding opponents to only 64.2 points per game. I expect a tight first half, with Providence tightening the screws on defense the second half to blow the game open. Take the Friars.

NHL: Toronto Maple Leafs ML (-200) vs Vancouver Canucks, 7:05 pm ET

Toronto can showcase that they are the better team in this contest. They hold themselves to a far higher standard than the Canucks, who are ranked 20th overall in the league so, coming off a weak performance, the Leafs should be driven to get back to winning ways. They can take advantage of an overachieving defense in Vancouver while playing solid defensively against the 5th-worst offense. Ride with Toronto on the road.

NBA: Brooklyn Nets vs Miami Heat – Under 219.5 points (-110), 8:10 pm ET

Brooklyn has struggled to score lately, averaging just 106.6 points per game during their losing streak which is about 5 points less than their season average. The total has gone under in 6 of 8 meetings between these teams played in Miami and in the last 10 meetings overall, the average amount of points scored averages out at 213.2 per game. The 3 most recent meetings have all gone under with just 199.3 points per game being scored in them. We should be in for a similar score tonight, so go with the under.
