Four-pick cross-sport parlay for Tuesday, April 6th (+2070): NHL, MLB, NBA and Champions League picks
The NCAA tournament is officially over and it is time to turn our full attention to the other sports. 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, MLB and Champions League.
Each pick is taken from a different sport and a winning ticket gives us a nice payout with odds at +2070 with FanDuel — more than 20/1! Let’s break down each of these four plays. Remember to gamble responsibly.
Best Champions League Pick: Real Madrid vs. Liverpool ML (+145), 3:00 p.m ET
Liverpool has been more reliable on their travels than at Anfield in recent months and their counter-attacking prowess can overwhelm Real Madrid in tonight’s Champions League quarter-final, first leg.
Three of Real’s four league defeats this season have been at home and their Champions League challenge commenced with a shock 3-2 loss to Shakhtar Donetsk. Veteran center-forward Karim Benzema offers their best hope of unsettling an inexperienced Liverpool defense but the road team carries the greater threat and looks the likelier winners.
Best NHL Pick: Tampa Bay Lightning -1.5 (+130) vs. Columbus Blue Jackets, 7:00 p.m ET
The Blue Jackets are 3-6-1 in their last 10 and have lost three in a row. In their last eight games their powerplay is at 8.1 percent, which is a far different look than TB. Factor in that the Lightning are upset about losing to Detroit and this will be Columbus’ third game in four nights and I like Tampa to win big. Take the Lightning -1.5.

Best NBA Pick: New Orleans Pelicans vs. Atlanta Hawks -3.5 (-115), 7:40 p.m ET
Looking at Atlanta, they are in good form, riding a 3-0 SUATS run. The team is a little shorthanded too but it is amazing what some confidence can do to overcome that. We like the Hawks at home to continue their good run of play against a Pelicans team that could very well be shorthanded tonight.
Best MLB Pick: Chicago White Sox -1.5 (+106) vs. Seattle Mariners, 10:10 p.m ET
The Chicago White Sox are 16-0 in their last 16 games when facing a lefty starter. In 2020, the White Sox were 15-0 against lefty starters in the shortened season. On April 2, they had their first look at a lefty starter this season when they faced the Angels’ Andrew Heaney. Heaney lasted just three innings giving up seven earned runs on five hits and two walks. With their ace, Lucas Giolito, on the mound, we like the White Sox to keep this amazing streak going strong and like them to win comfortably.
