Four-pick cross-sport parlay for Thursday, April 8th (+1281): NHL, MLB, and NBA picks
With baseball now in full swing, there are plenty of sports to find value on everyday. 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 night, 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 +1281 with FanDuel — more than 12/1! Let’s break down each of these four plays. Remember to gamble responsibly.
Best MLB Pick: Milwaukee Brewers vs. St. Louis Cardinals ML (+124), 4:15 p.m ET
Adam Wainwright is 90-49 with a 2.86 ERA and 1.16 WHIP in his career at home, and will be facing a Brewers team that ranks in the bottom third of just about every major offensive category. Most notably, Milwaukee is second-to-last in OBP (.239) and dead-last in OPS (.515) so far in 2021. Wainwright is 18-11 with a 2.50 ERA and 1.044 WHIP against Milwaukee in his career, and he should put together a strong outing against their cold bats.
Best NHL Pick: Pittsburgh Penguins vs. New York Rangers Over 6.5 Goals (+110), 7:00 p.m ET
Over the last seven games, the Penguins are averaging 4.29 per game and the Rangers are averaging 4.43. Five of the seven games between these two teams this season have gone over the total number and the Penguins’ last two have had a total of 24 goals. This game will likely fly over the total number as both offenses continue their scoring first mindsets.
Best NHL Pick: Nashville Predators ML (-164) vs. Detroit Red Wings, 7:30 p.m ET
Nashville is 8-2 in their last 10 games and are averaging 3.0 goals per game over their last nine which has been led by the powerplay that sits at 33.3 percent over those nine games. The Predators have won five of the seven games these two have played against Detroit this season and Nashville will likely win the last one of the year.
Best NBA Pick: Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Oklahoma City Thunder Over 218.5 Points (-110), 8:10 p.m ET
In three of the last four games, the Thunder have allowed at least 132 points or more, so expect the Cavaliers to have a strong scoring night. Over the last 10 games, the Thunder have played at the fastest pace in the league, with the Cavaliers ranking 12th. Given what we have seen recently, backing the over will be our play in what should be a very open game.
