Just one day away from the “First Four” of the NCAA tournament, but until then, there are plenty of other sports to find value on. 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 day, including action from the NHL, NBA, and Champions League.
Each pick is taken from a different sport with a second pick from the NHL. A winning ticket gives us a nice payout with odds at +1451 with BetMGM — more than 14/1! Let’s break down each of these four plays. Remember to gamble responsibly.
Best Champions League Pick: Athletic Madrid vs. Chelsea ML (+130), 4 p.m ET
Facing Chelsea at the moment when chasing a first-leg deficit is a daunting prospect. The Blues have conceded just two goals since Tuchel took over and they can complete the job here. Chelsea have collected 21 points from 27 available since the German arrived at Stamford Bridge and after a tricky start to 2021, fans can now look forward to a run in which sees Chelsea right in the mix to finish in the top four, already through to the FA Cup quarter-finals and a quarter-final in the Champions League.
Best NHL Pick: Vancouver Canucks ML (-155) vs. Ottawa Senators, 7 p.m ET
The Canucks have won two in a row and five of their last six after beating the Senators for the fourth time this season on Monday via a 3-2 decision. Thatcher Demko made 44 saves and now has a save percentage of .920 and one of the top goals-against averages at 2.74.
Ottawa has lost four of their last five games and are only averaging 2.59 gpg with one of the worst powerplays in the NHL at 15.0 percent. The Canucks let the Senators back in the game Monday to force overtime, but they won’t make that mistake again.
Best NBA Pick: San Antonio Spurs vs. Chicago Bulls -1 (-105), 8 p.m ET
The Chicago Bulls are on a back-to-back but their starters did not have to play many minutes on Tuesday, when they blew out the Oklahoma City Thunder. Head coach Billy Donavan made two starting lineup changes two games ago that have led to two convincing wins of 23 and 21 points.
The San Antonio Spurs on the other hand, are playing without their two best players, LaMarcus Aldridge and DeMar DeRozan. The Spurs struggle playing in the United Center, as they are only 1-5 against the spread in their last six visits to Chicago. Because the Spurs are missing some key players, we are backing the Bulls to win rather easily.
Best NHL Pick: San Jose Sharks vs. Vegas Golden Knights -1.5 (+110), 10 p.m ET
The Vegas Golden Knights are on a three-game winning streak as they welcome the second-to-last-place team in their division, the San Jose Sharks. Their most recent meeting on Monday resulted in a 2-1 win for the Golden Knights. Max Pacioretty was able to convert on one of their power-play chances to give him 14 goals on the year. Mark Stone assisted on the goal and also added one of his own in the third period. Pacioretty and Stone have been a huge part of this Vegas offense and will look to propel their team to their fourth straight win in this one.
