Four-pick cross-sport parlay for Thursday, May 13 (+2005): NHL, NBA, MLB, and EPL picks
A big Thursday of sports is expected, which 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, MLB and EPL.
Each pick is taken from each sport and a winning ticket gives us a nice payout with odds at +2005 with BetMGM — more than 20/1! Let’s break down each of these four plays. Remember to gamble responsibly.
Best EPL Pick: Everton vs. Aston Villa ML (+195), 1:00 p.m ET
The Toffees have invested heavily in their playing squad in the last few transfer windows, but they are on a run that has seen them win just two of their last nine matches. One of those defeats came against Villa at Goodison Park at the beginning of the month and there doesn’t seem to be as many reasons to think they can avenge that defeat.
Villa forward Ollie Watkins is suspended for Dean Smith’s side after he picked up a red card against Man Utd, but there’s enough attacking talent in Smith’s squad to suggest they are worth backing here.

Best MLB Pick: New York Yankees vs. Tampa Bay Rays Under 8.5 Runs (-115), 7:10 p.m ET
The Rays have been horrible with runners in scoring position, but the Yankees are hitting just .198 against southpaws over the last week. Rich Hill is not only a lefty, but has a sweeping curveball that has opponents hitting just .190 against with a 22.5 whiff percentage. They both have well-rested bullpens and almost every arm should be available. For that reason, we will be fading offense and will be backing the under.

Best NBA Pick: Toronto Raptors vs. Chicago Bulls Under 218.5 Points (-110), 8:10 p.m ET
In four of their last six games, the Raptors have scored 102 points or fewer. With the caliber of players they have out, that could very well be the case here too. There is also the fact that over the last 10 games the Bulls have been fourth in the league in terms of defensive rating. In three of the four games in which they have had Zach LaVine back they have been able to hold their opponents to under 100 points. If the Raptors are held to below 100 points here, it is hard to see the Bulls playing at a fast enough tempo to score 120 points and clear this line. For that reason, we will be backing the under.

Best NHL Pick: Vancouver Canucks vs. Calgary Flames Under 6 Goals, 9:09 p.m ET
Over the Canucks last 10 games they have averaged 2.2 goals, and their last two games have stayed under the total number. Their injury list is piling up as they start playing players from the taxi squad and giving them an opportunity to prove themselves. The Flames will start former Canucks goalie Jacob Markstrom, who will want to prove to Vancouver he is worth the money Calgary gave him. Markstrom is still having a solid year with a 2.66 GAA and .905 save percentage to go along with his three shutouts. The Flames have gone under the total number in four of their last five games. Therefore, we are going to be backing the under.
