His goal is to consistently give out winners and will do everything he can to make his readers money.

We’ve put together a four-pick cross-sport parlay which will take you right through the day, including action from the NHL, NBA, MLB and soccer’s Champions League.

One pick is taken from each sport and a winning ticket gives us a nice payout with odds at +885 with BetMGM — more than 8/1! Let’s break down each of these four plays. Remember to gamble responsibly.

Best MLB pick: Cincinnati Reds vs. Chicago Cubs ML (-125), 2:20pm ET

Although Chicago’s Zach Davies enters this matchup with a 4.96 ERA, that number is skewed due to his first couple of starts. In his first five starts, he allowed 20 runs in 19 innings with 27 hits and 15 walks. In his last five starts he has allowed five runs on 26 hits in 26.1 innings and just one home run.

The Reds’ supposed ace, Luis Castillo, has only one start allowing fewer than three runs and he enters this matchup with a 1-7 record and a 7.61 ERA. The Cubs’ offense is hitting the best they have all season as they have won their last five games and have the fifth-best batting average in the league in the last 15 days. For that reason, we like the Cubs in this spot.

Best Champions League pick: Chelsea vs. Manchester City ML (-105), 3pm ET

Manchester City has already won the EFL Cup, beating Tottenham in the final, and stormed to the Premier League title this season and now Pep Guardiola’s men have a third trophy in their sights.

There is no doubting this Chelsea team has come a long way in a short space of time under manager Thomas Tuchel and it is only a handful of signings away from competing for the Premier League title next season, but this has been a long time coming for Guardiola and City, who can get the job done in normal time in Portugal.

Best NBA pick: Denver Nuggets vs. Portland Trail Blazers Over 227.5 Points (-115), 4:05pm ET

The total has gone over in all three games of this series, with the teams averaging 234.6 points between them. The total has gone over in seven of Portland’s last nine home games against the Nuggets and in four of the last five overall between the teams. This has also happened in seven of the Nuggets’ last nine games overall. Expect a similar scenario tonight.

Best NHL pick: Toronto Maple Leafs ML (-200) vs. Montreal Canadiens, 7:38pm ET

The Leafs are averaging three goals per game but their defensive play has been winning them games as they have allowed an average of only 1.6 goals against and have not let up a powerplay goal in the series.

In Game 5, Montreal was able to get three goals in the first period but all were scored on scrambles in front of the net caused by bad giveaways from the Maple Leafs. They have only five different goalscorers in this series and do not have the offensive firepower to keep up with Toronto in Game 6. For that reason, we are backing the Maple Leafs to finish off this series.
