Matthew uses a variety of methods to handicap games, including stats, trends, injuries, and situational factors. His goal is to consistently give out winners and will do everything he can to make his readers money.

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

One pick is taken from each sport and a winning ticket gives us a nice payout with odds at +1260 with DraftKings; that’s more than 12/1! Let’s break down each of these plays.

College Football: Western Michigan Broncos vs Northern Illinois Huskies +3.5 (-115), 7pm ET

These teams have been trending in opposite directions for a while now, which doesn’t bode well for the Broncos in this one. WMU has covered just once in their previous 6 games while covering on the road just once all season. Northern Illinois is 7-3-1 ATS this year including 3-1 in their last 4 at home. There’s just been too much inconsistency recently from this Western squad to put any trust in them even winning, let alone covering. Take the points with the Huskies in what should be a fairly entertaining matchup.

NBA: Los Angeles Lakers vs New York Knicks – Over 214.5 points (-110), 7:35pm ET

These teams are averaging 219.5 points between them in the last 10 head-to-head meetings and the O/U numbers are 7-3 in favor of the over. And those stats are all before Russell Westbrook joined the Lakers. With him at the point-guard position, the Lakers are playing at the 2nd-fastest pace in the NBA and teams are taking advantage of that. Despite all their issues on offense, the Knicks still have the 11th most-efficient offensive rating for the season, so they should score enough to push us over the total. Take the over.

NHL: Edmonton Oilers ML (-105) vs Dallas Stars, 8:35pm ET

This game should come down to which team’s strength will come through and take over the game — the Oilers’ highflying offense or the stout defense of the Stars. The Oilers rank 2nd in goals scored, 2nd in goals per game, and they have the No. 1 power-play unit, converting an amazing 39.6% of their chances.

For this matchup, look towards the Oilers and their offense. Jake Oettinger’s numbers are good, but he is still inexperienced and hasn’t seen an offense led by Leon Draisaitl and Connor McDavid — the 1st and 2nd-ranked scorers in the league. Take the Oilers on the money line.

College Basketball: Gonzaga Bulldogs vs UCLA Bruins +6.5 (-105), 10pm ET

UCLA is the 7th-most efficient offense in the country, per KenPom, and comes into this “rematch” with Gonzaga averaging 94.8 points per game while ranking 20th in KenPom’s adjusted defensive efficiency and holding opponents to 67.8 points per game. They also rank in the top 35 in both offensive and defensive rebounding rate, which will be crucial against the Zags. UCLA should be extra motivated in this game and their defensive intensity coupled with Johnny Juzang’s playmaking should be enough to keep them inside the number.
