We have put together a 4-pick cross-sport parlay that will take you right through Tuesday, including action from the NHL, NBA, EPL and MLB. One pick is taken from each sport and a winning ticket would give us a nice payout with odds of +2601 at DraftKings. Let’s break down each of these plays.

EPL: Aston Villa vs Liverpool – Tie HT/Liverpool FT (+300), 3:00 pm ET

Since a 4-0 rout of Manchester United, Liverpool has scored only 9 goals in 5 games in all competitions and 8 of those have come in the second half. The Tie-Liverpool Half-Time/Full-Time wager cashed in Liverpool’s games against Everton and the first leg of the Champions League semifinal against Villarreal. Liverpool’s depth of attacking talent on its bench means the Reds pose a huge threat as games go on and they should be able to punish the home team after the break.

NHL: Boston Bruins vs Carolina Hurricanes – 3 way ML (+115), 7:00 pm ET

The trend of this series has been home teams winning, and I’m taking the pick that continues this trend. After losing two straight games, Carolina will be eager to get back onto the winning side of things, especially after losing the momentum they had after Game 2. They are the better team in this series and need to get back to the dominant play they showed earlier. I think this game will be the tightest battle yet, but it will go to the Hurricanes — who have a little more to offer and will be energized by the Carolina faithful.

MLB: Houston Astros vs Minnesota Twins +1.5 (-155), 7:40 pm ET

The Twins will send their ace, Joe Ryan to the mound for his 6th start of the year after having a tremendous start to his 2nd season. Ryan is pitching to a 1.63 ERA, including 2 shutouts and has not allowed more than 2 runs in any start this season.

In a game where the starting pitching appears to be even, look to the team with the better offense. Surprisingly, the Twins have been far better offensively than the Astros, ranking 11th in batting average and 10th in OPS, while the Astros are 27th in batting average and 18th in OPS. The top of the Twins batting order takes a hit with Luis Arraez being out, but the Twins have been a fantastic team at home this season, posting an 11-4 record. This is a winnable game for the Twins, but in what should be a low scoring game there is great value on the Twins’ run line.

NBA: Dallas Mavericks vs Phoenix Suns – Over 213 points (-110), 10:00 pm ET

The first 2 games in this series in Phoenix went over. Then the next 2 games in Dallas went under. Those results are in keeping with the fact that Dallas emphasizes defense, while Phoenix is more comfortable using their depth to create a free flowing game. Given the trend for the home team to set the pace and how the games have been very different in each venue, it is surprising that we are seeing the lowest point total of the series in this matchup back in Phoenix.

The Suns have averaged 115 ppg at home for all games this season and the average game score has been 222 points. I feel comfortable that a rebounding Phoenix will score enough in victory to achieve the over, as they have in the first couple of games of the series.
