Four-pick cross-sport parlay for Sunday, May 2 (+1130): NHL, NBA, MLB, and EPL 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, MLB and EPL.
Each pick is taken from a different sport and a winning ticket gives us a nice payout with odds at +1130 with FanDuel — more than 11/1! Let’s break down each of these four plays. Remember to gamble responsibly.
Best MLB Pick: St. Louis Cardinals vs. Pittsburgh Pirates Over 8.5 Runs (-105), 1:05 p.m ET
Carlos Martinez pitched to a 9.90 ERA last year, and while his bout with the coronavirus definitely contributed to that, he’s yet to have a start in which he didn’t allow a run since then. And if Pittsburgh scores even once or twice, St. Louis should be good for the rest against a pitcher whose career WHIP is well over two. The Cardinals came into Saturday fourth in the National League in home runs, and Will Crowe gave up five long balls in just 8.1 innings last year.
Best EPL Pick: Sheffield United vs. Tottenham Hotspur -1.5 (-125), 2:15 p.m ET
Spurs’ top-four chase means they have to be beating teams like the Blades and they’ll appreciate an opportunity to flex their own attacking muscles after having been subdued by Manchester City at Wembley last Sunday. On the other side, Sheffield have lost 14 of their 16 away games and scored only seven times outside South Yorkshire. For that reason, we are going to back Tottenham to pick up a comfortable win.

Best NHL Pick: Tampa Bay Lightning vs. Detroit Red Wings Under 5.5 Goals (-120), 3:08 p.m ET
A rested Andrei Vasilevskiy will get the start for Tampa Bay while the Red Wings will counter with Jonathan Bernier. Vasilevskiy has probably been the leagues best goalie this year as he owns a 2.1 GAA and a .929 SVP to go along with his five shutouts. It is very unlikely the Red Wings score more than one goal against him, which brings some nice value onto the under. Therefore, with what we expect the Lightning to do defensively, backing the under will be our play.
Best NBA Pick: Philadelphia 76ers -6 (-110) vs. San Antonio Spurs, 8:00 p.m ET
The Spurs don’t have anyone who is expected to effectively guard Joel Embiid and even Ben Simmons is probably too much for their wings to handle. The 76ers have been good as a road favorite this season, going 14-6 SU and 12-7-1 ATS. For that reason, we like Philadelphia to win this game comfortably.
