We have put together a 4-pick cross-sport parlay that will take you right through Wednesday night, including action from the World Series, NBA, MLS and NHL.

One pick is taken from each sport and a winning ticket gives us a nice payout with odds at +942 with DraftKings; that’s more than 9/1! Let’s break down each of these plays.

NHL: Detroit Red Wings vs Washington Capitals ML (-215), 7:08pm ET

After being one of the worst teams in the entire NHL last season, the Detroit Red Wings are off to a much better start than people probably predicted. The biggest surprise has been their offense, averaging over 3 goals a game. However, the defense is allowing almost 4 goals a game and not making it easy for goaltender Alex Nedeljkovic, who has posted a .897 save percentage so far this season.

On the other side, the Washington Capitals have looked nearly unstoppable. Their offense is firing on all cylinders averaging almost 5 goals a game. When you have an offense clicking as much as the Capitals are it is very hard to bet against them. It also helps that the Capitals have a solid defense and a brick-wall goaltender to help round them out. Take the Caps on the money line with confidence that they will get it done, but don’t trust the puck line just in case the Red Wings ride on their offense to keep it close.

NBA: Atlanta Hawks -6 (-110) vs New Orleans Pelicans, 7:40pm ET

Atlanta enters play on Wednesday at 2-1, with their sole loss coming on the road to the much-improved Cleveland Cavaliers. New Orleans is 1-3 on the young season, having earned their first win against the Minnesota Timberwolves on Monday. Trae Young is off to a strong start, averaging 25.0 points and 10.0 assists. He has been supported by 7 other players averaging at least 8.0 points per contest.

The Hawks are well-coached, have plenty of depth, and a bona fide star in Young. Though New Orleans also has a star with Brandon Ingram, they have nowhere near as much depth in this matchup as the Hawks. Bettors should expect a tightly contested first quarter, but the talent disparity in the second unit should make the difference. Take Atlanta to cover the spread.

World Series Game 2: Atlanta Braves vs Houston Astros – Under 8.5 runs (-105), 8:09pm ET

With a current total of 8.5 runs, the under is the recommendation in Game 2. Outside of Framber Valdez’s rough start, Houston’s pitching staff did their part in limiting Atlanta’s offense on Tuesday night. Houston was also able to save their 2 high-leverage relief arms, as Kendall Graveman and Ryan Pressly figure to appear during the later innings on Wednesday.

Atlanta’s pitching staff as a whole has done their part this postseason, pitching to a 3.28 ERA and holding opponents to a .228 batting average. Expect another lower-scoring contest, and back the under.

MLS: San Jose Earthquakes vs Portland Timbers ML (-110), 10pm ET

With just 3 games left to play, the Earthquakes are 7 points out of the last Western Conference playoff spot, meaning they’d need to win out and get some additional help if they want any chance at all. The Earthquakes just haven’t been consistent enough over the course of the season, and while they’re playing a team that’s been cold over its past few matches, they were outplayed by Portland the last time the teams met.

The Timbers looked to be in a comfortable playoff position but have been stuck on 46 points since the beginning of October. The home crowd atmosphere at Providence Park is as raucous as it is in any stadium in the West, and the fans will be fully aware of the stakes of this match and how important it is for the home team to get the 3 points they need for a little breathing room. Expect the Timbers to come through, and take them on the money line.
