We have put together a 4-pick cross-sport parlay that will take you right through Thursday, including action from college football, the NFL, NBA, and NHL.

One pick is taken from each sport and a winning ticket gives us a nice payout with odds at +1051 with DraftKings; that’s more than 10/1! Let’s break down each of these plays.

College Basketball: Clemson Tigers vs Temple Owls – Under 131.5 points (-110) 4:30pm ET

There are some signs of regression coming when looking at Clemson’s analytical profile. Starting with their offense, the Tigers are currently shooting 46.6% from three to start this season. There is no way that is going to continue all year, as national champions Baylor led the country in 3-point percentage last season at 41.3.

The other sign of regression looming is with Clemson’s defense, as its opponents are currently shooting 84.4% on free-throws. That’s not going to continue, either, as no team had their opponents shoot even 80% against them last season. Lastly, both defenses in this game are better than both offenses, so expect to see a pretty low-scoring game.

NHL: Pittsburgh Penguins ML (-145) vs Montreal Canadiens, 7:08pm ET

It seems like years ago that Montreal made a magical playoff run that resulted in a Stanley Cup Final berth. Eighteen games into this season, the Canadiens sit at 4-12-2 and look lost on the ice. The Habs are allowing 3.39 goals per game, the 5th-worst mark in the NHL, and are scoring only 2.11 goals per game (31st). Injuries remain an issue for the Canadiens as they expect to be without Carey Price for an extended amount of time and are also missing Mike Hoffman, Joel Edmundson and Jake Allen. Montreal is the NHL equivalent of the walking dead right now and the Penguins need a win desperately. Take the away side to get it right.

NBA: Los Angeles Clippers vs Memphis Grizzlies +1 (-110), 8:10pm ET

The Clippers have 7 players on the injury report including Nicholas Batum, who started in their last game but left early due to an Achilles’ injury. Without key rotational players such Batum, Marcus Morris Sr., Terrence Mann, and Kawhi Leonard, the Grizzlies will look to take full advantage of the crippled Clippers. Although the Clippers are accustomed to adjusting their lineups due to injury, the Grizzlies will be playing in their second home game in a row with 2 full days of rest. Back Memphis to cover tonight’s spread.

NFL: New England Patriots vs Atlanta Falcons – Under 47 points (-115), 8:20pm ET

The Patriots’ red-hot defense and the Falcons’ ailing offense make the under an intriguing play. New England has kept 3 of its last 4 opponents to 13 or fewer points and has allowed just 5 rushing touchdowns in 10 games this season. The Pats have also allowed the 7th-fewest passing yards per attempt, which is bad news for Matt Ryan as he looks to bounce back from his horror show against the Cowboys last Sunday. If the Patriots continue to lean on their run game, then that should keep the clock running and limit possessions for both teams. Roll with the under.
