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 put in the research to try and achieve this.

With baseball now in full swing, there are plenty of sports to find value on everyday. 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 night, including action from the NHL, NBA, MLB and Champions League.

Each pick is taken from a different sport and a winning ticket gives us a nice payout with odds at +1235 with FanDuel — more than 12/1! Let’s break down each of these four plays. Remember to gamble responsibly.

Best MLB Pick: Minnesota Twins -1.5 (+100) vs. Detroit Tigers, 1:10 p.m ET

Going back to 2019, the Tigers are 17-28 in games started by Matthew Boyd. A big reason for that is his inability to keep the ball in the yard. The left-hander yielded 15 home runs in 12 starts a season ago and gave up 39 in 32 starts in 2019. The Twins have four round-trippers in the first two games of this series, with three of them coming off the bat of Nelson Cruz. Look for Minnesota’s bats to lead them to a series win on Wednesday afternoon in comfortable fashion.

Best Champions League Pick: Chelsea ML (-140) vs. Porto, 3:00 p.m ET

Sergio Oliveria, Porto’s hero in the last-16 success over Juventus, will be missing due to suspension and the absence of the 19-goal marksman is bound to be felt given there is no natural replacement for the midfielder. Porto’s next highest scorer, Mehdi Taremi, is also banned which limits Porto’s attacking options to the extent Chelsea will fancy getting back to normal service defensively.

Despite conceding five to West Brom, the Blues have kept 12 clean sheets in their last 15 matches and one goal could be enough for the victory.

Best NBA Pick: San Antonio Spurs vs. Denver Nuggets -7 (-110), 9:10 p.m ET

The San Antonio Spurs have recently hit a bad stretch of form, having lost four of their last five games, including their most recent 125-101 loss to the lowly Cavaliers. The Spurs should have real trouble here dealing with the Nuggets frontline. Nikola Jokic is a matchup nightmare and is likely going to dominate the Spurs down low.

On the other side, the Denver Nuggets have been in much better form recently, managing to win their last six games, with three of those being by double digits. The Jamal Murray injury is a concern, but the Nuggets hung 134 on the Pistons without him, so their offense should not slow them down. Look for the Nuggets to dominate the frontline and dominate the game. Back them to cover here.

Best NHL Pick: Arizona Coyotes vs. Los Angeles Kings Over 5.5 Goals (+104), 10:08 p.m ET

The over is 7-2 in the Coyotes’ last nine overall and 4-1 in their last five on the road. It is also 6-2 in the Kings’ last eight that are the fourth of a four games in six days situation and 9-3-1 in their last 13 after allowing at least five goals in their previous outing. Back the over and do so with confidence.
