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 +1100 with BetMGM — that’s 11/1! Let’s break down each of these four plays. Remember to gamble responsibly.

Best NHL Pick: Florida Panthers ML (+120) vs. Tampa Bay Lightning, 12:38 p.m ET

Florida was down two goals heading into the third period but was able to complete the comeback to force overtime thanks to goals by Patric Hornqvist and Gustav Forsling.

Look for the Panthers to ride this momentum into Saturday and even up the series at two games apiece. The Panthers had an incredible 47 shots on goal on Thursday night, which was 16 more than the Lightning. Sergei Bobrovsky came into the game to start the third period and stopped all nine shots he faced. Look for the Panthers to go back to Bobrovsky to help them get the win.

Best MLB Pick: Seattle Mariners vs. San Diego Padres -1.5 (+105), 8:40 p.m ET

Mariners starter Justus Sheffield was once a top prospect but we have not seen much of that at the MLB level. This is going to be a very tough spot for him taking on one of the league’s best teams on the road.

San Diego is countering with their own young, second-generation lefty in Ryan Weathers. Unlike Sheffield, he has shown dominance right away and the only reason to hesitate with him is that he is not quite being used as a starter in terms of pitch counts. So, while we do not expect a blowout from San Diego like we saw last night, backing them to win comfortably will still be our play.

Best UFC Pick: Rob Font vs. Cody Garbrandt, Fight to go the Distance – No (-275), 10:00 p.m ET

Both guys have plenty of power with eight of Cody Garbrandt’s 10 UFC fights ending inside the distance. Seven of Rob Font’s 11 UFC fights have done the same, so backing this fight to end inside the distance will be our top play.

Best NBA Pick: Portland Trail Blazers ML (-105) vs. Denver Nuggets, 10:30 p.m ET

Portland comes into this game having finished the season on fire. They won ten of their last 12 games, and it’s not like they were beating up on doormat teams. Eight of those wins came against teams who either made the play-in tournament or the playoffs.

Denver leaned so heavily on Jamal Murray for last season’s playoff run that it’s hard to overstate how big his ACL injury will be. Nikola Jokic can’t do it all by himself and the Blazers were actually better on the road than at home this season. For that reason, we like Portland to take an early series lead.
