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

One pick is taken from each sport and a winning ticket gives us a nice payout with odds at +1343 with DraftKings — that’s more than 13/1! Let’s break down each of these plays.

College basketball: Indiana Hoosiers -4 (-110) vs Notre Dame Fighting Irish, 2:30pm ET

Indiana improved to 8-2 on the season by dominating Merrimack 81-49 last Sunday. This was a great bounce-back win after Indiana lost a close one in Madison against the Wisconsin Badgers. Both of Indiana’s losses this season have come by 5 or fewer points, including a double overtime loss at Syracuse.

Notre Dame sits at 4-4 on the season and is coming off a massive win against the Kentucky Wildcats last Saturday. That was a surprising result considering Notre Dame lost to Boston College by 16 points just before. However, Indiana is a tough team that should be able to wear down Notre Dame. Take the Hoosiers to win and cover.

College football: UAB Blazers vs BYU Cougars -6.5 (-110), 3:30pm ET

BYU head coach Kalani Sitake is 3-1 in bowl games, and the last 2 wins have come by 31 and 26 points. The Cougars have a fantastic QB/RB combo with Jaren Hall and Tyler Allgeier. Together they lead a well-balanced attack that can make things happen in a variety of ways. The Blazers might need to be near-perfect in order to hang around with the Cougars. That may be difficult considering that UAB commits a ton of penalties. They are flagged 9.3 times per game (second-most in the country), and their 91.7 penalty yards per game is the highest in the nation. That is not a good recipe for success against a well-balanced BYU offense that should be very physical up front. Back BYU.

NHL: Los Angeles Kings vs Carolina Hurricanes – Under 5.5 goals (-125), 7:08pm ET

The under is 19-8 for the Kings and 16-9 for the Hurricanes this season. Carolina is playing without 2 key offensive playmakers in Andrei Svechnikov and Sebastian Aho, so their offensive potential is hindered. Los Angeles has allowed just 5 total goals in their last 4 games, and Jonathan Quick is in a groove in net. He has a .951 save percentage and a 1.64 GAA in his last 3 starts.

On the other side, Carolina has been the stingiest defensive team up to this point in the season, as they are allowing a league-low 2.18 goals per game. This should be a tough, physical battle with limited scoring chances. Look to the under.

NFL: New England Patriots ML (+120) vs Indianapolis Colts, 8:20pm ET

Indianapolis is in fine form, although 4 wins during its current 6-2 stretch have come against Houston, Houston again, Jacksonville, and the Jets. It’s not an ideal matchup for star RB Jonathan Taylor and the Colts against a New England defense that leads the league in fewest rushing touchdowns allowed with just 6. It’s also tough to bet against Bill Belichick when his team has won 7 straight and he has a ton of time to prepare for Indy thanks to a Week 14 bye.

The Patriots are 7-0 against the spread in their last 7 overall, 4-0 ATS in their last 4 on the road, and 5-0 ATS in their last 5 against the AFC. Indianapolis is 3-7 ATS in its last 10 at home and 1-5 ATS in the last 6 meetings between the teams. Take New England.
