His goal is to consistently give out winners and will do everything he can to make his readers money.

We have put together a 4-pick cross-sport parlay that will take you right through Wednesday, including action from College Basketball, Champions League, the NBA, and NHL.

One pick is taken from each sport and a winning ticket gives us a nice payout with odds at +1184 with DraftKings; that’s almost 12/1! Let’s break down each of these plays.

Champions League: Liverpool vs Porto +0.5 (+100), 3pm ET

While Liverpool has little to play for, Porto should be highly motivated having moved into 2nd place in their Uefa Champions League group, 1 point ahead of Atletico Madrid. Their road games in Madrid and Milan were both ties. Those results extended Porto’s recent Champions League away record to only 9 losses in the last 30 games and it could pay to oppose the English team by taking Porto to win or tie.

College Basketball: Xavier Musketeers -9 (-115) vs Iowa State Cyclones, 7pm ET

The Musketeers are significant favorites in this Big East vs Big 12 matchup. That makes a lot of sense with Paul Scruggs playing well and Xavier an experienced team that knows what it wants to do. Iowa State has a new coach and new players and will take some time before it is playing up to its competition with regularity. The game is at the Barclays Center, which presents an advantage for Xavier. For that reason, backing Xavier to win and cover is the play.

NBA: Charlotte Hornets -7.5 (-110) vs Orlando Magic, 7:10pm ET

The Charlotte Hornets have been on an impressive run of games, winning 6 of their last 7, including one against the Golden State Warriors. They will be confident they can keep that run going against an Orlando Magic team that is coming off a 31-point defeat to the Milwaukee Bucks. The Magic have now lost 6 of their last 7 games and will be without their leading scorer Cole Anthony tonight. With their offense already struggling this season, ranking 27th in offensive rating and 26th in points per game, his absence could condemn the team to another tough night offensively.

With LaMelo Ball leading the way, the Hornets rank 4th in assists per game and in the top 10 in the league in offensive rating. They should have too much firepower for the Magic tonight, so back them to secure a strong double-digit win.

NHL: New York Rangers ML (-125) vs New York Islanders, 7:30pm ET

The Islanders like to play a defense-first style of hockey, and so far that hasn’t been too successful. Even though they rank 10th in the league in goals allowed, they have also played the fewest number of games. The pressure they allow defensively is even worse, ranking 24th in expected goals against per 60 minutes. The Islanders’ offense doesn’t help with this lack of defense, as they rank 31st in goals per game at 2.07.

The Rangers, who have won 5 of their last 6 games, will simply need to control the game against an Islanders team that will have backup and minor-league players on the active roster. Back the Rangers with confidence.
