Four-pick Cross-Sport Parlay for Saturday, April 17th (+1290): NHL, NBA, UFC and MLB Picks
A big Saturday 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, UFC and MLB.
Each pick is taken from a different sport and a winning ticket gives us a nice payout with odds at +1290 with FanDuel — more than 12/1! Let’s break down each of these four plays. Remember to gamble responsibly.
Best MLB Pick: Tampa Bay Rays vs. New York Yankees Under 8 Runs (-115), 1:05 p.m ET
In his three starts, Tyler Glasnow has allowed just one run. The Yankees rank 23rd in runs per game, while the Rays rank 24th and also have a very poor offense. In two of Glasnow’s three starts, the game has ended 1-0 in favor of the Rays. With Glasnow on the mound and these two underperforming offenses, take the under with confidence will be our top play.
Best NHL Pick: St. Louis Blues ML (-146) vs. Arizona Coyotes, 6:08 p.m ET
The Blues enter this game playing great hockey, winning three of their last four and putting up great numbers over that stretch. As a team they averaged 4.5 goals and only 2.0 against during that span, which was led by the powerplay coming in at 40 percent. The Coyotes come into this game with a different look as they have lost five in a row and just ended a nine game road trip. We never like a team returning home after a long road trip especially when they have to face a team that knows what it takes to make the playoffs. Therefore, we will be backing the Blues tonight.
Best NBA Pick: Golden State Warriors vs. Boston Celtics -4.5 (-114), 8:40 p.m ET
The Celtics are on one of their best runs of the season with five wins in a row and seven of their last eight. Big man Robert Williams is questionable for this one, but with their being next to no interior presence on the Warriors, his absence will not be a big one. Unless Stephen Curry scores 40 or more, we don’t see how the Celtics don’t win comfortably. Even if he does, we still see Boston winning fairly easily at home. Take Boston.
Best UFC Pick: Robert Whittaker Win by Decision (+135) vs. Kelvin Gastellum, 12:00 a.m ET
Kelvin Gastelum has had plenty of disappointing results recently, so there really is no way I can back him to win here. I like the striking from Whittaker and believe he will win this fight. His last four wins in the UFC have been by decision, therefore backing him to win on the cards will be my top play for this fight at plus money.
