The Sweet 16 has arrived, but there are still plenty of games to find value on until then. 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 day, including action from the NHL, NBA, UFC and college basketball.

Each picks is taken from each sport and a winning ticket gives us a nice payout with odds at +1647 with FanDuel — more than 16/1! Let’s break down each of these four plays. Remember to gamble responsibly.

Best College Basketball Pick: Baylor Bears -7.5 vs. Villanova Wildcats, 5:15 p.m ET

Villanova has been impressive so far, but that’s only because they got gifted a matchup with 13-seeded North Texas in the Round of 32. The absence of Collin Gillespie may finally be felt against an elite team. Gillespie was averaging 14 points per game before going down at the end of the season and the Wildcats aren’t going to be able to just rely on their defense against Baylor as they did in the first two rounds. Given the fact that Baylor breezed past a solid Wisconsin team, backing the Bears will be our play.

Best NHL Pick: Toronto Maple Leafs ML (-168) vs. Edmonton Oilers, 7 p.m ET

The Maple Leafs are playing at home, have won two straight overall, are leading the season head-to-head series 5-2, and welcome an Edmonton squad that may take a while to find its rhythm. They have won three in a row at Edmonton’s expense by a combined margin of 13-1. Edmonton is 6-20 in the last 26 meetings between the two teams and 2-8 in its last 10 at Toronto. Given the recent layoff for Edmonton, we are backing the Maple Leafs to get the win.

Best NBA Pick: Philadelphia 76ers ML (+168) vs. Los Angeles Clippers, 10 p.m ET

Philadelphia has been on fire without their best player, the only team that beat them in the last 12 games was the Milwaukee Bucks and that was just by four points. Doc Rivers will be fired up to get one over his former team. Sixers are 6-0 in their last six road games. With the status of Kawhi Leonard being up in the air, Philadelphia has a chance of an upset here.

Best UFC Pick: Stipe Miocic ML (+114) vs. Francis Ngannou, 12:00 a.m ET

Really not much has changed for these fighters in recent years for me to believe this fight is not going to go the same way the first one went. Francis Ngannou is going to be the popular pick, but I still believe Stipe Miocic is much more balanced and will be able to control this fight using his wrestling skills just like he did in the first meeting.
