Four-pick Cross-Sport Parlay for Sunday, February 28th (+1031): NBA, NHL and college basketball picks
After a full Saturday of games, the Sunday card is much smaller, but still has plenty of games to offer value. 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 NBA, NHL, and college basketball.
Each pick is taken from a different sport with one additional pick from the NHL. A winning ticket gives us a nice payout with odds at +1031 with DraftKings — more than 10/1! Let’s break down each of these four plays. Remember to gamble responsibly.
Best NHL Pick: New Jersey Devils vs. Washington Capitals ML (-148), 3 p.m ET
The Capitals have now won both games against the Devils this season and have won three of their last four games. The Capitals had goals from all four lines and increased their goals per game average to 3.45. New Jersey have now lost four of their last five games. Their power play is a brutal 17 percent and they are only managing 2.69 goals for per game. Washington is on a roll right now and they will dominate the Devils for the second game in a row.
Best NHL Pick: Philadelphia Flyers ML (-165) vs. Buffalo Sabres, 3 p.m ET
The Philadelphia Flyers dominated the Buffalo Sabres on Saturday in a 3-0 win. The Flyers outshot the Sabres 39-23 and won the faceoff battle 38-23. Buffalo has now been shut out in their last two games against the Flyers and are only averaging 2.33 goals per game this season. Eric Staal admitted after the game that he doesn’t think “confidence is very high at all” which would explain Buffalo’s offensive troubles. The Flyers will take advantage of the struggling Sabres as they fight for a playoff spot and come away with a win in this one.
Best College Basketball Pick: Ohio State Buckeyes -3 (-112) vs. Iowa Hawkeyes, 4 p.m ET
Last week this line probably would have been something like -5 and I was thinking that Iowa might set up as a good play if they had been competitive against Michigan but that didn’t happen. I am leaning towards coaching for this one and feel good about Ohio State coach Chris Holtman using those back-to-back losses to get his team right, whereas I feel Iowa’s coach just rolls out the balls and hopes for the best.
Best NBA Pick Golden State Warriors ML (+120) vs. Los Angeles Lakers, 8 p.m ET
The Lakers are in a funk without AD. They have only one win in their last five games. The Warriors hold a 11-4 edge over the Lakers in the last 15 head-to-head meetings. They also love playing the Lakers away from home, where they have beaten them six times in the last seven meetings at the Staples Center. I think they have a shot at beating the shorthanded Lakers here.
