We have put together a 4-pick cross-sport parlay that will take you right through Thursday, including action from the NBA, NHL, MLB and Europa League. One pick is taken from each sport and a winning ticket would give us a nice payout with odds of +983 at DraftKings. Let’s break down each of these plays.

Europa League: Eintracht Frankfurt +0.5 (-105) vs West Ham, 3:00 pm ET

Eintracht Frankfurt pulled off an upset by beating Barcelona 3-2 at Camp Nou after knocking out another Spanish team, Real Betis, in the round of 16. The German club has saved its best effort for European competition this year, with a midtable position in the Bundesliga, while being unbeaten in 10 Europa League games. Filip Kostic was the star of Frankfurt’s performance against Barcelona, but it was a top team performance and if the road team can replicate that effort in the first leg it’s hard to see them losing to a West Ham team dealing with defensive injuries. Take Frankfurt to either tie or win the first leg of this semifinal matchup.

NHL: Washington Capitals vs New York Islanders – Under 6 goals (-115), 7:05 pm ET

Just as surprising as the New York Islanders being underdogs is this total being listed at 6 rather than 5.5. The under hit in the last meeting 2 nights ago, and that was with New York playing better offensive hockey than usual. They’re still a bottom-10 goalscoring team, averaging just 2.75 goals per game.

Ilya Sorokin has led the Isles to a top-1o goaltending mark, allowing just 2.8 goals per game. The Caps’ goalscoring threat greatly diminishes without Alex Ovechkin and his 50 goals, and Washington is not a terrible goaltending team either, allowing fewer than 3 goals per game. The great goaltending of Sorokin and the lack of Ovechkin should prove another low-scoring affair.

MLB: Chicago Cubs vs Atlanta Braves ML (-180), 7:20 pm ET

Atlanta will send Kyle Wright to the mound, and he is off to a great start to the season. In 3 starts, Wright has thrown 17 innings, allowing just 2 earned runs. He has posted 26 strikeouts and just 2 walks.

This is the rubber match of the series as Atlanta won on Tuesday and Chicago won in extras on Wednesday. The Braves are still looking for their first series win of 2022 and no one knows that more than they do. Atlanta has to win series against beatable teams like this. Look for the Braves to come out with a little extra juice to break out of their early slump.

NBA: Phoenix Suns vs New Orleans Pelicans – Over 214 points (-110), 7:30 pm ET

Both times the total stayed under in this series, Phoenix held New Orleans to under 100 points, with both of those games played in Phoenix. If the Pelicans break 100, this game should go over the total. New Orleans will be energized in front of their home crowd and trying to stave off elimination and that can help to force the total over.
