Four-pick cross-sport parlay for Tuesday, April 13th (+1226): NHL, NBA, MLB, and Champions League picks
The Champions League is back this week, 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 Champions League.
Each pick is taken from each sport and a winning ticket gives us a nice payout with odds at +1226 with FanDuel — more than 12/1! Let’s break down each of these four plays. Remember to gamble responsibly.
Best Champions League Pick: Porto vs. Chelsea ML (-120), 3:00 p.m ET
Chelsea leads Porto 2-0 following the first leg of this Champions League quarter-final clash and can finish the job in style by winning again in Seville. The Blues warmed up for this return leg with a dominant 4-1 win over Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Saturday, another display of sharp, confident football in the Tuchel era. Porto saw off Juventus in the previous round but they conceded plenty of chances against the Italian giants, therefore we like Chelsea to finish them off in style with a win.
Best NHL Pick: Tampa Bay Lightning -1.5 (+150) vs. Nashville Predators, 8:08 p.m ET
Nashville have 10 regulars out of the lineup due to injury and have lost six of the seven games against TB this season. Playing this many games with a small bench will not help the Predators in this game and five of Tampa Bay’s six wins against the Preds this season have been by more than one goal. Take the Lightning -1.5.
Best MLB Pick: Detroit Tigers vs. Houston Astros ML (-194), 8:10 p.m ET
Matthew Boyd gets the nod for the Tigers, and he has looked rather impressive through two starts in 2021. However, in four starts against the Astros in his career, Boyd has allowed seven home runs and has an ERA of 5.91. Given Boyd’s struggles against Houston in his career and given that Jake Odorizzi is familiar with Detroit, we like the Astros to win this game and snap their losing streak.
Best NBA Pick: Miami Heat vs. Phoenix Suns -3 (-110), 10:10 p.m ET
The Suns’ real advantage comes in the backcourt and the pairing of Chris Paul and Devin Booker. Averaging just over 27 points per game over the last week, it will be a tough task for anyone on the Heat to match Booker’s scoring. Duncan Robinson is a lights-out shooter but he is nowhere near the offensive threat that Booker is. Look for the Suns to handle the Heat in all parts of the game and back them here to cover.
