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

Two picks are taken from each sport and a winning ticket would give us a nice payout with odds of +799 at DraftKings Sportsbook. Let’s break down each of these plays.

NHL: Montreal Canadiens vs Carolina Hurricanes -1.5 (-150), 7:05 pm ET

Carolina has held onto the lead in the Metro Division, leaning on the likes of Sebastian Aho and his 5-game point streak. Prior to the recent loss against the Lightning, the Hurricanes pulled off impressive road wins, beating both the Blues and Capitals by 5 goals. Carolina will also be coming into this matchup with confidence, knowing they’ll be facing the 2nd-worst goaltending in the NHL. Montreal is allowing 3.76 goals per game, and has the 2nd-worst goalscoring mark with just 2.55 per game. The Hurricanes should continue to ride Aho’s scoring to breeze by the Canadiens.

NBA: Milwaukee Bucks +2 (-110) vs Brooklyn Nets, 7:30 pm ET

These are two of the best teams in their conference but Steve Nash might be getting a pass coaching the Nets, who seem to have lots of lapses and are still struggling to use all of their pieces while also not covering a lot of spreads. The Bucks are coming off a statement win in Philadelphia, so back the Bucks to continue playing well and to win this game or at least keep it within 1 possession.

NBA: Cleveland Cavaliers vs Atlanta Hawks -5.5 (-115), 7:40 pm ET

The Hawks seem to be getting hot at the right time, having won and covered in 3 straight, scoring at least 120 in all 3 games. Cleveland, however, is going in the opposite direction. The Cavs have lost 7 of their last 11 straight up, and 4 of their last 5. They have also covered in only 2 of their last 10 games, and have lost 3 straight on the road by an average of more than 11 points per game. The Hawks are 24-14 at home and 20-18 ATS. For that reason, back Trae Young and Atlanta to stay hot against the fading Cavaliers.

NHL: Los Angeles Kings vs Calgary Flames 3-way ML (-195), 9:05 pm ET

There is a major factor that makes the Flames the pick in this game, and that is rest. The Flames are playing their 5th game of a 6-game home stand. The Kings are playing in their 2nd road game in 2 nights. They lost 4-3 to a tough Oilers team in a shootout last night and will now be facing an even tougher Flames team while also battling fatigue. Calgary would likely have been the pick regardless, but with the rest factor added, the Flames to win in regulation is the play.
