We’ve put together a four-pick cross-sport parlay which will take you right through the day, including action from the NHL, NBA and MLB.

One pick is taken from each sport with a second pick from the NBA. A winning ticket gives us a nice payout with odds at +1138 with BetMGM — more than 11/1! Let’s break down each of these four plays. Remember to gamble responsibly.

Best NBA pick: Washington Wizards vs. Philadelphia 76ers 0ver 230.5 (-110), 7:05pm ET

If Joel Embiid is unable to play we can expect the Sixers to run a bit more as that’s normally what they’ve done in regular-season games without their big man. Betting on points in Washington games has been highly profitable as of late. Ten of their last 15 games have cashed, including three of the four games in this series. The teams are averaging 232.2 points, which is a couple of points over the total for tonight. One more encouraging stat is that the over has cashed in eight of the last 11 meetings at Wells Fargo Center. We should once again see a high-paced game which will drive up the scoring numbers and push us over the total.

Best NBA pick: Atlanta Hawks vs. New York Knicks over 208.5 (-110), 7:30pm ET

In the last contest, we saw the lowest total of the series and this one opened at the same number, 208.5. That is hinting that the oddsmakers are expecting this game to be played at an even slower pace than we have seen so far. That argument makes some sense but Atlanta are fancied to win this game and a grinder is not their preferred method. Also, with the Knicks now potentially facing elimination they have to be willing to play out the end game for as long as possible to give themselves a chance. That is why the over with the low total makes great appeal. We will be backing the over.

Best MLB pick: Boston Red Sox vs. Houston Astros ML (-135), 8:10pm ET

Nick Pivetta’s 3.86 ERA is misleading and he’s been lucky to play behind one of the two best lineups in baseball. He comes into his first start in June after finishing with a 4.82 ERA in his five May outings (28 innings total). Pivetta is yet to go further than six innings, he’s walked multiple hitters in all but one of his starts, and he’s beaten only two teams over .500 in his six wins this year. For that reason, we like the Astros.

Best NHL pick: Vegas Golden Knights vs. Colorado Avalanche under 5.5 goals (-105), 10:08pm ET

Both goaltenders have been playing superbly throughout the playoffs, with Marc-Andre Fleury holding opponents to less than two goals per game and Philipp Grubauer not allowing more than three goals at any point and posting a 1.60 GAA. Grubauer has held opponents to only one goal in three of five games this postseason. The Knights’ top line will take on more of a defensive role if they expect to shut down Nathan MacKinnon in this game, and the offense could dry up for both teams. For that reason, we like the under.
