Baseball is finally back and with the Final Four not for a few days, there are plenty of games to find value on. This means it is time to have some fun and look for some of the best bets across all the different sports and pile them into one parlay. We’ve put together a four-pick cross-sport parlay which will take you right through the day, including action from the NHL, NBA and MLB.

Each pick is taken from a different sport with a second pick from the NHL. A winning ticket gives us a nice payout with odds at +935 with FanDuel — more than 9/1! Let’s break down each of these four plays. Remember to gamble responsibly.

Best MLB Pick: Arizona Diamondbacks vs. San Diego Padres -1.5 (-118), 4:10 p.m ET

It is going to be easy to fall into a trap of backing the Padres against every team but LA this season. I like the value of them winning on the run line. Darvish should be in great form while MadBum is a guy I will be looking to fade against almost everyone. The lineups are not even close. San Diego can beat you in so many ways and has even been known to manufacture runs. Take San Diego.

Best NHL Pick: Columbus Blue Jackets vs. Tampa Bay Lightning -1.5 (-111), 7:00 p.m ET

The Blue Jackets have lost four of their last five and will be playing their fourth game in six nights on Thursday. Rest will certainly be a factor here and we do not think Columbus will be able to keep up with Tampa Bay this time around. Look for the Lightning to have a dominant performance at home. Take the Lightning -1.5.

Best NHL Pick: Montreal Canadiens ML (-184) vs. Ottawa Senators, 7:00 p.m ET

Ottawa has the second-worst goals differential in the NHL behind Buffalo at -41 and in their last five games have a goals for average of 2.2 while allowing an average of 32.6 shots per game. That’s a high number when you have your fourth-string goalie in net. Montreal will be hungry to attack the young goalie and get the points they need to keep in the race. Take the Canadiens.

Best NBA Pick: Denver Nuggets -2 (-110) vs. Los Angeles Clippers, 10:10 p.m ET

The Nuggets are riding a three-game winning streak into LA to face the Clippers. Slowly but surely they are looking like a team to be reckoned with in the Western Conference. The Clippers are dealing with some injuries including Paul George, Serge Ibaka and Patrick Beverley. All three of these guys are expected to be out again tonight, so we like Denver to take care of business against a Los Angeles team not at full strength.
