Four-pick Cross-Sport Parlay for Wednesday, March 24th (+1232): NHL and NBA Picks
With the NCAA Tournament not picking up again for a few days, there are less sports going on, but still enough 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 and the NBA..
Two picks are taken from each sport and a winning ticket gives us a nice payout with odds at +1232 with FanDuel — more than 12/1! Let’s break down each of these four plays. Remember to gamble responsibly.
Best NHL Pick: Buffalo Sabres vs. Pittsburgh Penguins -1.5 (-118), 8 p.m ET
The Sabres matched their longest losing streak in franchise history on Monday night with their 14th straight loss. Buffalo ranks third highest in the league in average goals against with 3.47 per game. The Penguins have beat the Sabres by three goals in each of their previous matchups this season and should have no problem doing that again coming off of a two-day break.
Best NBA Pick: Memphis Grizzlies vs. Oklahoma City Thunder Over 219.5 Points (-108), 8 p.m ET
In the two games that these teams played this season, they combined for totals of 235 and 250. With the latter coming just 10 days ago and having been played in Oklahoma, it seems unlikely that the teams will see a sudden 30-point drop in their scoring here. Over the last 10 games the Grizzlies are ranked 5th in the league in terms of pace, and with a young Thunder team, do not be surprised to see them roped into a back and forth game.
Best NBA Pick: Brooklyn Nets +10 (-110) vs. Utah Jazz, 10 p.m ET
The Nets have been one of the best road teams against Western Conference opponents. They are 8-1 straight up and against the spread in their nine games on the road against Western Conference foes. The Jazz have come back down to Earth, as they are only 4-4 straight up and 2-6 against the spread in their last eight games. Harden will give the Nets a chance to win on any given night and playing the best team in the NBA is no different.
Best NHL Pick: Los Angeles Kings vs. San Jose Sharks Under 5.5 Goals (-104), 10:30 p.m ET
In the last 23 meetings between these two clubs, the over has only cashed on four occasions. Look for a similar result to what we saw on Monday night, as both teams did a good job to limit high-danger scoring chances. This is particularly true for the Kings of late, as they have gone under the total in five of their last six games. There has also been a trend towards lower scoring games this year since teams are now playing each other so often and becoming more familiar of their opponent’s offensive threats.
