Four-pick cross-sport parlay for Sunday, April 4th (+1605): NHL, MLB and NBA picks
After a crazy Final Four, we finally have a Championship game set. Until that game on Monday, there are plenty of games to find value on for Sunday. 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 and MLB.
Each pick is taken from a different sport with a second pick from the NHL. A winning ticket gives us a nice payout with odds at +1605 with FanDuel — more than 16/1! Let’s break down each of these four plays. Remember to gamble responsibly.
Best NHL Pick: Detroit Red Wings vs. Tampa Bay Lightning -1.5 (-134), 12:00 p.m ET
Tampa Bay is now 15-3 at home and has won three in a row. The Red Wings have lost six of their last eight games and are 3-14-2 on the road this season. As a team they are averaging 3.21 goals against and their powerplay is only at 11.8 percent. Four of their last six loses have been by more than one goal which will be the perfect pick for this game as Tampa Bay will beat up on them early. We like the Lightning to assert their dominance with a win on the puck line.
Best MLB Pick: Cleveland Indians ML (-130) vs. Detroit Tigers, 1:10 p.m ET
In the eight games that Tarik Skubal pitched in last season, the Tigers won just two of them. In his lone start against the Indians in 2020, Skubal made it through just 2.1 innings, and racked up a high pitch count. Aaron Civale has a bit more big league experience and has shown that he can perform at the highest level consistently. Roll with the Indians to pick up the win on Sunday.
Best NHL Pick: Dallas Stars vs. Carolina Hurricanes -1.5 (+168), 7:08 p.m ET
The Carolina Hurricanes have a significant advantage in offense over the Dallas Stars as they are averaging 3.23 goals per game compared to Dallas who is averaging just 2.76. The Stars are coming off a big win but looking at a larger sample size they have won just five of their last 14 games. Carolina is the better team and also has the advantage of home ice, where they are 11-3-3 on the year. As a result, we like them to bounce back in a big way and will take them on the puck line.
Best NBA Pick: Golden State Warriors vs. Atlanta Hawks ML (+110), 7:40 p.m ET
Getting back Stephen Curry should be a boost for Golden State here, but it’s hard to expect a team to recover so quickly after a historic loss just two nights ago. Atlanta is in much better shape, despite playing without John Collins here. They’re 5-0 in their last five at home and have beaten the Warriors in two straight by an average of 20.5 points per game. We like the Hawks here at home.
