Four-pick cross-sport parlay for Sunday, April 25th (+1183): NHL, NBA, and MLB Picks
A big Sunday 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 day, including action from the NHL, NBA, and MLB.
Each pick is taken from a different sport with a second pick from the MLB. A winning ticket gives us a nice payout with odds at +1183 with FanDuel — more than 11/1! Let’s break down each of these four plays. Remember to gamble responsibly.
Best MLB Pick: Oakland Athletics ML (-120) vs. Baltimore Orioles, 1:05 p.m ET
The Orioles are 1-8 in their own ballpark, and they have been outscored by 21 runs in those nine home games (53-32). John Means is definitely a bright spot for this Baltimore team, but Oakland is seeing the ball well against left-handed pitching. John Means will get the start for the Orioles, but the Athletics are 4-1 when going up against a lefty, and own a .256 average against them.
Oakland will send their left-hander Jesus Luzardo to the mound, and he was dominant in his last outing. The Athletics have also been a tremendous road team with a 6-1 record away from home. We like the A’s to keep their incredible streak alive.
Best MLB Pick: Kansas City Royals ML (-104) vs. Detroit Tigers, 1:10 p.m ET
Lefty Danny Duffy is off to a great start for the Royals. Through three starts he has pitched six innings each time and only given up a run only once. He is long past his prospect status but maybe he has finally figured out how to navigate a lineup, when to challenge and when to back off. Michael Fulmer starts for the Tigers. This is a bad spot for him though. For starters, he is on just three days rest and second, he has bad numbers against the Royals. He is 2-5 for his career against K.C. For that reason, we will be backing the Royals.
Best NHL Pick: Columbus Blue Jackets vs. Tampa Bay Lightning -1.5 (-113), 7:08 p.m ET
The Tampa Bay Lightning beat the Columbus Blue Jackets 3-1 on Thursday night for their third win in their last five games and their fourth win over the Blue Jackets this season. Columbus has lost eight in a row and are 1-8-1 in its last 10, allowing an average of 4.38 goals against over that losing streak. Tampa Bay is too good up and down the lineup and will take the two points from the Blue Jackets to move up the standings. For the sake of this parlay, backing the Lightning on the puck line will be our play to help the odds.
Best NBA Pick: Sacramento Kings vs. Golden State Warriors Over 2230 Points (-112), 10:10 p.m ET
These two teams have met twice this season and have combined for totals of 243 and 260. With Stephen Curry and the Warriors in a great offensive rhythm, and the defensive struggles the Kings are experiencing, tonight should be more of the same. Six of the last 10 games the Kings have played have cleared the 230-point mark with at least one team reaching the 120-point mark in seven of those games. With the lack of defense shown, we will take the over.
