After a big day of sports on Saturday, we have less games on Sunday, though still plenty of options to bet on throughout the major sports. 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 night, including action from the NBA, NHL, and college basketball.

Each pick is taken from a different sport with college basketball getting one extra pick. A winning ticket gives us a nice payout with odds at +1257 with DraftKings — more than 12/1! Let’s break down each of these four plays. Remember to gamble responsibly.

Best College Basketball Pick: Maryland Terrapins vs. Rutgers Scarlet Knights Over 130 Points (-110) 3 p.m ET

The Scarlet Knights may not be deep, but Ron Harper Jr. is averaging 16.0 ppg and Jacob Young comes in at 14.2 ppg. During its current winning streak, Maryland is averaging 71.6 points per game while shooting 47.9 percent overall and hitting 39.0 percent of its three-point attempts. These two teams previously faced each other in December, and 134 points were scored. The over is 5-2 in the Terrapins’ last seven on Sundays. It is also 11-5-1 in the Scarlet Knights’ last 17 at home and 11-5-1 in their last 17 at home against opponents with losing road records. Look for this one to go over the total.

Best NHL Pick: Montreal Canadiens vs. Ottawa Senators Under 6 Goals (-107), 7 p.m ET

Jake Allen will get the start for the Canadiens, while Ottawa will go to Matt Murray between the pipes. Allen is off to a terrific start to the year and his strong play is sure to frustrate the Senators. Look for the Canadiens to hold the Senators to a maximum of two goals. Montreal won’t want to let this win slip away, so if they do get the lead early expect them to play a strong defensive game to prevent Ottawa from getting any easy scoring chances. These teams have already met twice this year and only combined for eight goals over two games.

Best College Basketball Pick: Butler Bulldogs +8.5 vs. Xavier Musketeers (-109), 7 p.m ET

Xavier started off hot, but they have slipped recently–losing back-to-back games entering this one. I’m not saying they’re going to lose a third in a row, but this spread is just way too high given the current state of their defense. Over their past two games, they have given up an eye-popping 173 points.

Butler has been enduring a very disappointing season, but they aren’t completely lifeless. They just beat St. John’s outright a couple games ago, and they’re virtually at the exact same level as Xavier if you believe KenPom’s rankings. The Bulldogs aren’t going to roll over, and 8.5 points presents some real value. This is a team that beat an elite Creighton squad early in the year, so they clearly still have some upside. They have also played good Indiana and Seton Hall teams close. Grab the points with the underdog here.

Best NBA Pick: Sacramento Kings vs. Milwaukee Bucks Over 238.5 (-109), 9 p.m ET

When the Kings and the Bucks meet, the audience is in for a scoring treat. Each of the last 10 matchups between these two opponents has gone over the total and those games have gone over by an eye-popping average of 14.5 points per game. The Kings play little to no defense and the Bucks play at such a fast pace that they are in the bottom half of the league in terms of points per game allowed. Both of these teams should have almost 100 possessions and this game should explode over the total.
