Four-pick cross-sport parlay for Thursday (+1810 odds): EPL, NBA, NHL and MLB
MLB: San Francisco Giants vs New York Mets ML (-140), 1:10 pm ET
The biggest problem for the Giants is their offense, as they rank 26th in batting average in the last 7 days and have struggled against good pitching in their last few games. With Carrasco starting and the deep Mets bullpen, the Giants’ struggles are primed to continue their success on Thursday afternoon. Back the hotter offense and take the Mets on the money line.

EPL: Burnley vs Southampton – Draw (+230), 2:45 pm ET
The Saints are an inconsistent team and given they have already had 12 EPL ties this season, it could pay to back this game to end with the scores level too. Burnley has had even more ties, with 13 in the league this season. Neither team has a strong offense and 7 of Burnley’s last 9 games have produced under 2.5 goals, so do not expect a classic game. Southampton has little left to play for this season and that could contribute to what is likely to be a slow and tentative game. Take the tie.

NBA: Memphis Grizzlies -1.5 (-110) vs Minnesota Timberwolves, 7:00 pm ET
The series now shifts to Minneapolis, where the Wolves have a 27-15 record this season. Adjustments will have to be made after that tough Game 2 loss. In particular, D’Angelo Russell’s play has to get better — otherwise the Timberwolves will be in trouble. Memphis won’t want to give Minnesota any hope, so winning on the road is a must. This team has been battle-tested so many times this season. The Grizzlies have gone 25-15-1 ATS on the road and backing them to cover is the way to go in Game 3.

NHL: Dallas Stars vs Calgary Flames 3-way ML (-130), 9:05 pm ET
The Stars are still fighting for their playoff lives, but Calgary is not an ideal place to try and achieve their goal. The Flames are 23-9-7 at home and their incredible goaltending will be a huge hurdle for the Stars to shoot over.
Dallas is 4th-worst in the league, averaging just 2.54 goals per game on the road. Flames goalie Jacob Markstrom has led the team to a top-3 goaltending mark, as the Flames average just 2.48 goals allowed per game. The Stars depend on their defense to overcome their lack of goal-scoring. Unfortunately for Dallas fans, cooling off these Flames should prove to be a dull pipe dream.
