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 +984 with DraftKings; that’s almost 10/1! Let’s break down each of these plays.

College Football: Central Michigan Chippewas -1.5 (-115) vs Ball State Cardinals, 7pm ET

This Central Michigan passing game has been great, but the run game has been just as good, if not better. Running back Lew Nichols III is averaging 129.7 yards per game on the ground and has amassed at least 136 in each of the past 5 contests. Central Michigan has now covered in 3 of its past 4 games, with an average cover of nearly 17 points. Ball State, on the other hand, hasn’t covered in over a month and sports a lackluster 1-3 record ATS at home this season. Back the Chippewas to continue rolling in conference play and to win this game by at least a few points.

College Basketball: Michigan State Spartans -2.5 (-115) vs Butler Bulldogs, 7pm ET

This game is at historic Hinkle Fieldhouse and the Bulldogs play well there. However, take the Spartans as small favorites on the road. They are the more talented team by far and with a loss already they are not going to overlook Butler. These teams are very similar in the way they play but Michigan State does it with more talent and more depth. As long as they match the intensity of Butler they should win by 10. Having to win by only 1 possession to cash is great value.

NBA: Boston Celtics vs Atlanta Hawks -4.5 (-110), 7:40pm ET

Atlanta has won back-to-back games, but at 6-9 it still has some work to do to get to preseason expectations. Earlier this month the Hawks suffered a loss with forward De’Andre Hunter ruled out until the new year, but they have plenty of depth.

Look for Cam Reddish to get a shot and he is always better the more he plays. Atlanta is the favorite at home. That might not have been the case if Jaylen Brown was healthy, but without him Boston just doesn’t have the depth. Jayson Tatum may be able to match the scoring of Trae Young, but after that the Hawks have many more ways they can attack. There will be a fun matchup in the middle with Clint Capela and Robert Williams III. This game should be close for the first half, but Atlanta will likely pull away in the second to get the cover. Take Atlanta.

NHL: Colorado Avalanche ML (-160) vs Vancouver Canucks, 9:08pm ET

Colorado has been pounding the puck in the net, averaging 4.5 goals per game in the past 6 games. Even with Nathan Mackinnon out until late November, this group hasn’t lost a beat. A slow start to the season has Colorado in 5th place in the Central Division, which is unacceptable for a Stanley Cup contender. After winning 2 straight and looking at their next few games, Colorado can really take advantage and get on a hot streak, starting in Vancouver. Until the Canucks can prove they are out of this slump, they don’t have much of a chance against the Avalanche.
