Four-pick Cross-Sport Parlay for Tuesday, March 23rd (+1407): NHL and NBA Picks
With the NCAA Tournament not picking up again for a few days, there are less sports going on, but still enough to find value on. 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 NHL and the NBA..
Two picks are taken from each sport and a winning ticket gives us a nice payout with odds at +1407 with FanDuel — more than 14/1! Let’s break down each of these four plays. Remember to gamble responsibly.
Best NHL Pick: Florida Panthers -1.5 (+160) vs. Chicago Blackhawks, 8 p.m ET
The Florida Panthers are 4-0 against the Chicago Blackhawks this season. In three of the four games they have managed to cover the puck-line spread. The Panthers are second in the Central Division, and for a good reason. Overall, Florida has five players with at least 20 points and two more with 19. That has led them to being the third-highest scoring team in the NHL, averaging 3.35 goals per game.
The Blackhawks have slowly began cooling off. In their last seven games they are 1-6. Outside of Patrick Kane and Alex DeBrincat, Chicago does not generate much offense. They have a very good powerplay because of Kane, but their 5-on-5 play is not strong and they could be completely outmatched in this game. There is some value being offered on the puck line for the Panthers.
Best NHL Pick: Detroit Red Wings vs. Nashville Predators ML (-162), 8 p.m ET
Nashville has won three of their last four games and have played stellar hockey during that stretch, allowing only 1.75 goals against per game with no power play goals against. With some injuries to their lineup, Filip Forsberg has stepped up his game, leading the team in both points and goals.
The Red Wings on the other hand, are already looking for the season to end as they are 3-10-1 on the road this year and allowing 3.25 goals against per game. As a result, the Predators will be determined to get these points against a bad Red Wings team.
Best NBA Pick: Brooklyn Nets vs. Portland Trailblazers Over 233.5 Points (-110), 10 p.m ET
These teams boast two of the top 10 offenses and two of the bottom five defenses. This season, 15 of the Nets’ 20 road games have gone over the total, a ridiculous 75 percent. Both teams should be able to get to 120 points and therefore this game should explode over the total. We are projecting 247 points on Tuesday, which gives the over a lot of value. Harden and Lillard going head-to-head is going to be fun to watch and should result in a lot of points.
Best NBA Pick: Philadelphia 76ers -4 (-114) vs. Golden State Warriors, 10 p.m ET
Philly is on an 8-1 run after nipping the Knicks by a point in overtime. With Embiid out, this team is very democratic with its scoring. Five players scored 11 or more points. The Warriors’ injuries are just running so deep right now it is hard to get behind this club. No Embiid for Philly only balances the scales so much. The Sixers are playing great without him and I don’t expect that to stop this evening. Philly has covered in every game but one in March (with one push).
