Matthew has been with Pickswise for a while now, covering a wide variety of sports. His main passions are college football and UFC, and those are the sports he has covered the most. 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 put in the research to try and achieve this.

This week is special because it marks the continuation of the UEFA Champions League. That also includes several other sports with games tonight. 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 day, including action from the NBA, NHL, college basketball and the Champions League.

Each pick is taken from a different sport and a winning ticket gives us a nice payout with odds at +1311 with DraftKings — more than 13/1! Let’s break down each of these four plays. Remember to gamble responsibly.

Best Champions League Pick: Bayern Munich ML (-125) vs. Lazio, 3 p.m ET

Bayern’s attacking swagger can leave gaps at the back and their two league games since the Club World Cup were a 3-3 tie with Arminia Bielefeld and a 2-1 defeat to Eintracht Frankfurt. Lazio, who have won seven of their last eight in Serie A, will pose a threat to the Bayern defense but they have struggled against the top teams in Italy, losing 3-2 to Milan and 3-1 to Inter. Bayern back themselves to outscore any opponents in an open contest and they should take a first-leg advantage in an entertaining fashion in Rome.

Best NBA Pick: Orlando Magic -3.5 (-112) vs. Detroit Pistons, 7 p.m ET

The Pistons have not scored more than 102 points in three straight games, and with Jerami Grant the only one carrying the offensive load, that looks unlikely to change tonight. With the big men available to the Pistons and the form that Nikola Vucevic is in, having managed 30 in two straight games, it is likely that he will be able to replicate the same level of success tonight. Therefore, look for the Magic to cover the spread again against the league’s worst road team.

Best NHL Pick: Montreal Canadiens -1.5  (+116) vs. Ottawa Senators, 7 p.m ET

Ottawa has lost two of their last three games and have a brutal home record of 2-5-1. On top of that they have the highest goals against average at four per game. Thomas Chabot will miss another game with an upper body injury which leaves their defensive core thin as Nikita Zaitsev is minus five, Mike Reilly is minus nine and Erik Gudbranson is minus 14 this season. It will be tough for the Senators to pull off back to back wins against the Canadiens, who need to find their way back to the top of the North Division.

Best College Basketball Pick: Penn State Nittany Lions -6.5 (-110) vs. Nebraska Cornhuskers, 8 p.m ET

Both teams have been disappointments this season, but Nebraska has been far worse. Penn State has mostly just had bad luck, as it is actually the 34th-best team in the country according to KenPom despite being only 7-12. The Nittany Lions have had an incredible amount of close losses to great teams, and they recently came close to knocking off both Iowa and Ohio State in their last two games. Penn State is clearly much better than its record indicates, and I think the visitors finally start to put it together here against an inferior opponent.
