Four-pick cross-sport parlay for Saturday, April 3rd (+868): NHL, MLB, NBA and College Basketball picks
The Final Four is finally here, plus there are plenty of other games to find value on. This 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 night, including action from the NHL, NBA, MLB and NCAA basketball tournament.
Each pick is taken from a different sport and a winning ticket gives us a nice payout with odds at +868 with FanDuel — more than 8/1! Let’s break down each of these four plays. Remember to gamble responsibly.
Best MLB Pick: Cleveland Indians ML (-154) vs. Detroit Tigers, 1:10 p.m ET
When Zach Plesac took the mound against the Tigers last September, he delivered 7.2 innings of work, allowing no runs while striking out 11 in a winning effort. Julio Teheran had a FIP of 8.62 last year, including a 10.66 FIP against left-handed batters, something that could be problematic against a Cleveland lineup that is capable of having seven lefties. Cleveland has the better starting pitcher in this matchup, the better offense, and a better bullpen. Back them with confidence.
Best College Basketball Pick: Houston Cougars vs. Baylor Bears -5 (-110), 5:14 p.m ET
Houston’s run to the Final Four doesn’t look quite as impressive when you consider that they’ve played all four of their tourney games against double-digit seeds. They just got lucky getting to face Syracuse and Oregon State in the Sweet 16 and Elite Eight. Baylor on the other hand has smothered Arkansas, Villanova, and Wisconsin in recent games. Back the Bears to keep rolling.
Best NHL Pick: Minnesota Wild vs. Vegas Golden Knights ML (-164), 9:00 p.m ET
Minnesota have lost two of their last three and have slowed down since their hot streak in early March. In their last eight games they have averaged only 1.88 goals for and have allowed an average of 37.3 shots against. This will be the Wild’s third game in four nights and because they will likely have tired legs, we like Vegas to win this game.
Best NBA Pick: Indiana Pacers vs. San Antonio Spurs -4.5 (-110), 9:10 p.m ET
Matchup-wise the Spurs will have a huge advantage over the Pacers at the guard positions if Malcolm Brogdon is unable to go. Derrick White, DeMar DeRozan and Dejounte Murray have been combining for 60 points a night for the Spurs over the last week. With Murray and White being outstanding perimeter defenders, they should have the tools to make this another difficult night for this Pacers team. With this being the second night of a back-to-back for the Pacers, we like the Spurs to cover at home.
