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

One pick is taken from each sport and a winning ticket would give us a nice payout with odds of +1540 at DraftKings Sportsbook. Let’s break down each of these plays.

MLS: FC Cincinnati vs Charlotte FC ML (+125), 5:00 pm ET

This year, there’s a new expansion team that’s well on its way to passing Cincinnati, the new first step on a team’s path to the playoffs. Charlotte FC is unlikely to contend for the postseason this year, but has impressed so far. While the team did lose its first 3 games, all were close contests that were tighter than their lack of points would indicate. Charlotte finally secured its first victory last weekend, beating the reigning Supporters’ Shield champions New England in a dominant 3-1 performance. Expect them to keep the ball rolling with confidence high against a team that would have been relegated had they played in most other leagues in the world. Take Charlotte on the money line.

NBA: Brooklyn Nets -3.5 (-110) vs Miami Heat, 8:10 pm ET

This could be a matchup we will see in the playoffs and Miami is starting to struggle at the wrong time. Miami has lost three straight and two of them at home. The Heat are also just 5-7 ATS on back-to-backs. The Nets are 7-2 ATS in their last nine road games and 11-9 ATS as a road favorite this year. The Nets are the healthier team right now and getting Miami at the right time. Tyler Herro did not play in the last two games and there’s no word of his status for this game. For that reason, backing the Nets will be the play.

College basketball: Arkansas Razorbacks vs Duke Blue Devils -3.5 (-110), 8:49 pm ET

Duke ranks 2nd in KenPom’s offensive efficiency, 8th in effective FG%, and 21st in turnover rate. Despite being a team made up of mostly freshmen, I think Duke is too deep offensively for the Razorbacks. The Blue Devils have shown the ability to beat some of the country’s best defensive teams already this season, as they are 6-1 SU against teams that rank in the top 50 in KenPom’s adjusted defensive efficiency (Arkansas 11th). Arkansas may keep this close early, but expect the Blue Devils to pull away late.

NHL: Anaheim Ducks vs San Jose Sharks – Over 6 goals (+100), 10:35 pm ET

The Ducks have fallen out of the playoff race and goalie, John Gibson has just completely fallen apart. He has now given up 3 or more goals in 14 straight starts. The veteran netminder just can’t keep the puck out of his own net. James Reimer hasn’t been any better for San Jose, so how is this game going to stay under 6 goals? A bad offense can still score goals against a bad goalie, so both teams will have their chances to fill the net early and often. This over could hit before the second period even ends.
