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 night, 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 +1281 with BetMGM — more than 12/1! Let’s break down each of these four plays. Remember to gamble responsibly.

Best NBA Pick: Charlotte Hornets vs. New York Knicks -5.5 (-110), 1:10 p.m ET

It is hard not to like New York at home as the healthier and better team. Hornets rookie, LaMelo Ball thrives on his passing, but he is going to have to be more careful as the Knicks are so strong with their defense. On the flip side, the Hornets do not have ideal personnel to handle Julius Randle. The Knicks have shown they can close out games this season too. They are great about using Randle to be efficient down the stretch.

Best MLB Pick: Atlanta Braves ML (-115) vs. Milwaukee Brewers, 7:10 p.m ET

Ian Anderson vs. Brett Anderson will the be the pitching matchup tonight and while Ian Anderson has not looked as good as he did last season, Atlanta has won five of his last six starts. Brett Anderson is still trying to build up his pitch count, having only pitched three innings in his last start against the Marlins. We believe he is the weak link in an otherwise strong Brewers rotation. Even with a couple of keys guys absent from the lineup, backing the Braves will be our play to win this game.

Best NHL Pick: Boston Bruins vs. Washington Capitals Under 5.5 Goals (-125), 7:15 p.m ET

The first game in any playoff series is a feeling-out game, but in this case these teams have played eight games against each other already this season. Washington’s focus on defense is evident in their play of late with only 2.2 goals against over their last five games and a penalty-killing unit at 90.9 percent over that stretch. The Bruins have stayed under the number in three of the last four games, while the Capitals have been under in their last two games to end the year. Because this is their first game of what is expected to be a long playoff series, we will be backing the under and will look for a defensive game.

Best UFC Pick: Michael Chandler ML (+115) vs. Charles Oliveira, 12:00 a.m ET

Both of these fighters have been excellent, especially Charles Oliveira with his win streak. However, Michael Chandler absolutely dominated Dan Hooker in his last fight. His striking was unreal in that fight and that is what we believe will be the biggest difference. Chandler also has a good enough takedown defense to keep this fight standing, so backing Chandler to win the Lightweight belt as an underdog will be our play tonight.
