Matthew uses a variety of methods to handicap games, including stats, trends, injuries, and situational factors. His goal is to consistently give out winners and will put in the research to try and achieve this.

We’ve put together a four-pick cross-sport parlay that will take you right through Saturday, including action from the NBA Playoffs, NHL Playoffs, MLB and the UFC.

One pick is taken from each sport and a winning ticket gives us a nice payout with odds at +1306 with BetMGM — that’s more than 13/1! Let’s break down each of these four plays. Remember to gamble responsibly.

Best MLB pick: Cleveland Indians ML (-120) vs. Pittsburgh Pirates, 4:05pm ET

Cleveland’s Cal Quantrill has started before but he is not quite ready to take on a full starter’s workload. Look for him to throw only about 60 pitches. He has good stuff though, and against a team like Pittsburgh that might carry him pretty far into the game. Pirates starter Wil Crowe looked great in his last start against Milwaukee. At one point he retired 15 straight batters. That is encouraging, but you can’t just ignore that he is 0-4 with a 6.75 ERA for the season. The Indians are not a powerhouse but they should not have too much trouble getting to Crowe eventually. Quantrill should be able to work his way through the Bucs and is backed by an Indians bullpen that is really good.

Best NHL pick: Tampa Bay Lightning vs. New York Islanders ML (+115), 8pm ET

Another home game should be just what the doctor ordered for the Islanders. After all, no team in the NHL had a more outrageous discrepancy between their home record and road record during the regular season. The Isles went 21-4-3 at Nassau Coliseum compared to 11-13-4 away from home. Six different New York players have recorded double-digit points in the playoffs. Mathew Barzal has scored in five of the last seven contests. The Islanders are 25-10 in their last 35 at home, 7-2 in their last nine playing on one day of rest, and 4-1 in their last five as underdogs. Look for New York to even up this series.

Best NBA pick: Milwaukee Bucks ML (+105) vs. Brooklyn Nets, 8:30pm ET

The home team has won each game of this series, so normally you’d think that’s advantage Brooklyn heading into Game 7, but that may not be the case. Milwaukee is clearly the healthier team and if they play a similar style to Game 6, with Giannis Antetokounmpo opting to dominate on the inside instead of taking threes and going at the injured James Harden on offense, Milwaukee will be in a good position. Both Kevin Durant and Harden played 40 minutes in Game 6, and the Bucks have more to offer at this time. Back Milwaukee.

UFC pick: Chan Sung Jung vs. Dan Ige over 3.5 rounds (-135), 9:30pm ET

This is basically the most evenly matched fight on the entire UFC card and it is hard to give the edge to one guy or the other. This contest could easily go the distance, and because of that, backing this fight to go over 3.5 rounds appeals.
