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 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, college football, the NBA, and NHL.

One pick is taken from each sport and a winning ticket gives us a nice payout with odds at +1878 with DraftKings; that’s more than 18/1! Let’s break down each of these plays.

College Football: Northern Illinois Huskies ML (+110) vs Ball State Cardinals, 7:00 pm ET

The Huskies are 6-3 this season with their best win being a 22-21 win over Georgia Tech in Week 1. They have won 5 of their last 6 games, including 4 of their last 5 conference games. The key factor is the running game. The Huskies average 221.4 yards rushing and it is their main form of offense. Northern Illinois is set to run the ball and control the clock to keep Ball State off the field. Northern Illinois are 5-1 in their last 6 games. The Huskies can use their rushing attack to win at home in a close game as underdog.

NBA: Toronto Raptors ML (+110) vs Boston Celtics, 7:40 pm ET

These teams have already played each other at the TD Garden this season, with the Raptors getting a dominant 115-83 win. The Raptors are 4-0 on the road this season, one of only two two teams not to lose on their travels yet. On the other hand, the Celtics are one of two teams yet to win at home. Offensively the Celtics are only 22nd in the league in offensive rating, and against this defense and without their leading scorer Jaylen Brown, they could struggle to break the 100-point mark. Back the Raptors to get the win.

College Basketball: North Florida Ospreys vs Texas A&M Aggies – Over 142.5 points (-110), 8:00 pm ET

North Florida consistently attempts three-pointers at one of the highest rates in the country and Texas A&M’s defensive identity is to pack the paint and encourage three-point attempts. In head coach Buzz Williams’s two seasons at Texas A&M, the Aggies have ranked 343rd and 353rd in denying three-point shots. Of course North Florida will need to make quite a few of them in order to help the over but the blueprint is there for an efficient offensive performance from the Ospreys.

Texas A&M does not have a very good offense, but what it does do well is offensive rebound–ranking 35th overall last season per KenPom. Expect to see a lot of second-chance points for the Aggies to help this over the total.

NHL: Nashville Predators ML (+135) vs Dallas Stars, 8:30 pm ET

The Nashville Predators have played much better over the past week winning 5 of their last 7 games. Behind an offense that is finally starting to get things going compared to last season, the Predators are scoring almost 3 goals a game, while only giving up 2 goals a game, thanks to star goaltender Juuse Saros. Given the defense, goaltending, and recent success that Nashville has had, this seems like the perfect spot to double down on the Predators. Take the Predators on the money line with confidence in this one.
