Four-pick cross-sport parlay for Wednesday, May 5 (+1673): NHL, NBA, MLB, and Champions League picks
The Champions League is back this week, 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 Champions League.
Each pick is taken from each sport and a winning ticket gives us a nice payout with odds at +1673 with FanDuel — more than 16/1! Let’s break down each of these four plays. Remember to gamble responsibly.
Best Champions League Pick: Real Madrid ML (+240) vs. Chelsea, 3:00 p.m ET
Real Madrid has certainly adopted a more pragmatic approach in recent weeks and that has seen them go on a 19-match unbeaten run. Zinedine Zidane’s side managed just a single shot on target in the first leg, but with Chelsea holding the away goal, Real will likely be forced forward. Los Blancos have the attacking talent to cause Chelsea’s defense plenty of problems and at the odds, we like Real Madrid to advance to the finals.
Best MLB Pick: Atlanta Braves ML (-130) vs. Washington Nationals, 7:05 p.m ET
Erick Fedde will take the mound for Washington here and always draws a lot of criticism. We do not like him in this spot and that is backed up by the fact that he has been terrible against Atlanta this season. He is already 0-2 with an ERA of 14.06 against the Braves.
Max Fried will look to restart his season so to speak, coming off a few disastrous starts and an injury to go along with that. With how bad Fedde has been against Atlanta, we like the Braves’ offense to cover Fried if things do not go his way.
Best NHL Pick: Nashville Predators ML (-184) vs. Columbus Blue Jackets, 7:08 p.m ET
The Predators can inch closer to that final spot in the Central Division with another win over the Jackets on Wednesday. They have won four of their last five games while averaging 3.20 goals per game during this stretch.
On the other side, Columbus can now be talked about in the same group as the Sabres and Ducks near the bottom of the NHL. The Blue Jackets have one win in their last 12 games and are allowing an average of 3.75 goals against over that span. Based on that, Nashville is going to be our play.
Best NBA Pick: Memphis Grizzlies -3 (-110) vs. Minnesota Timberwolves, 8:10 p.m ET
The Timberwolves will likely not have a great counter for Memphis guard Ja Morant and center Jonas Valanciunas will be more than Karl-Anthony Towns wants to handle. It appears as if Memphis is going to have advantages all over the floor, therefore we like them to win by enough to cover here.
