A big Wednesday of sports is expected, which 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, MLB and soccer’s Europa League.

Each pick is taken from each sport and a winning ticket gives us a nice payout with odds at +1251 with BetMGM — more than 12/1! Let’s break down each of these four plays. Remember to gamble responsibly.

Best Europa League pick: Manchester United vs. Villarreal Over 2.5 goals (+100), 3pm ET

While Villarreal will be wary of a United squad featuring the attacking talents of Edinson Cavani, Marcus Rashford, Mason Greenwood, Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba, they also know they have the quality to trouble the Red Devils’ defense.

Villarreal veteran Carlos Bacca scored a hat-trick in this month’s 4-0 league win over fourth-placed Sevilla and since Manchester United completed a 4-0 aggregate victory over Granada in the quarter-finals, they have enjoyed 3-1 Premier League wins over Burnley and Aston Villa and suffered 2-1 and 4-2 defeats to Leicester and Liverpool. So, even with this being a tense final, we will look for plenty of goals to be scored.

Best NHL pick: Florida Panthers vs. Tampa Bay Lightning Over 6 goals (+100), 7:08pm ET

Both these teams are set to continue to play the run-and-gun style of hockey that has got them this far and they have slower defensemen who can’t keep up with the attacking skill that has been on display in this series. Three of the five games have gone over the total and Game 6 should see another high-scoring game.

Best MLB pick: San Francisco Giants ML (-130) vs. Arizona Diamondbacks, 9:40pm ET

The Diamondbacks have lost nine games in a row and will send Merrill Kelly to the mound to counter Johnny Cueto. Although Kelly is coming off his best outing of the season, he has yet to prove that he can repeat it based on his previous eight outings. Current Giants hitters have a combined average of .306 against Kelly, so they have had success against him in the past. Once Kelly comes out of the game, the Giants will also face a bullpen that has the fourth-worst ERA and the third-worst WHIP in the league. For that reason, we like the Giants.

Best NBA pick: Memphis Grizzlies +9 (-110) vs. Utah Jazz, 10:05pm ET

There is no doubting Donovan Mitchell’s talent but assuming he plays, there could be some reintegration pains and the Grizzlies are playing really good ball right now. Their backcourt will pressure Mitchell to be on his game from the get-go, especially Dillon Brooks, who guards really hard. So, while we do not expect another upset, we do like the Grizzlies to keep it close.
