His goal is to consistently give out winners and will do everything he can to make his readers money.

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

One pick is taken from each sport with a second from the NHL. A winning ticket would give us a nice payout with odds at +1123 with DraftKings Sportsbook. Let’s break down each of these plays.

NHL: Washington Capitals 3-way ML (-115) vs Philadelphia Flyers, 7:05 pm ET

The Capitals have been outstanding on the road this year, with a 15-5-4 record that is far better than their record at home. Additionally, Washington has won its last 4 road games by an average margin of 3 goals, and the Caps are 4-0 in their last 4 meetings in Philadelphia.

Meanwhile, the Flyers are looking to avoid dropping a 4th straight game after blowing a late 4-2 lead to the Penguins in their last outing. Philadelphia has dealt with a lot of injuries and won just twice in the last 10 games. The Flyers rank 27th in goals, and 25th in goals against, and could fold against a strong Capitals team. Take the Capitals to win in regulation.

NHL: Detroit Red Wings vs New York Rangers 3-way ML (-120), 7:05 pm ET

Defense is where the big advantage comes for the Rangers, especially in net. Even though both teams rank in the bottom 10 in expected goals against, the separation between the teams comes from goals against per game, where the Rangers rank 4th and the Red Wings are 26th. Projected starter for the Rangers, Igor Shesterkin, ranks 1st in goals saved above expected, where the highest-ranked goalie on the Red Wings roster is 40th. Look for Shesterkin to stop the Red Wings attack and take the Rangers to win in regulation on the 3-way money line.

NBA: Dallas Mavericks -3.5 (-110) vs New Orleans Pelicans, 8:10 pm ET

Being a road favorite has been a good situation for the Mavericks all season. they are 8-3 SU and 6-5 ATS. Take Dallas to cover the small spread. Luka Doncic is going to be the best player on the floor and he is enough of a difference-maker, even on the road. The addition of CJ McCollum gives the Pels more punch, but winning hasn’t followed. Take Dallas.

College Basketball: San Francisco Dons vs St. Mary’s Gaels -3 (-115), 10:00 pm ET

St. Mary’s have quietly put together a great season as they are 20-6 and in 2nd place in the West Coast Conference. They are 12-0 at home this season and should continue to roll in this conference (besides Gonzaga). St. Mary’s can force San Francisco to play their game and wear them out. Take St. Mary’s to cover this short spread.
