We have put together a 4-pick cross-sport parlay that will take you right through Monday, including picks from the NBA, NHL, NFL and college basketball. One pick is taken from each sport and a winning ticket would give us a very nice payout with odds of +1056 at DraftKings Sportsbook.

College Basketball pick today: Texas Tech Red Raiders vs Creighton Bluejays – Under 136 points (-105), 2:30 pm ET

The under is the side of the total to bet in this matchup, as both teams have outstanding defenses. Texas Tech ranks 2nd nationally in KenPom’s adjusted defensive efficiency, while Creighton ranks 26th. More specifically, each defense is excellent at preventing shots near the rim. Per Hoop-Math, Texas Tech ranks 10th in limiting opponent shots at the rim and 41st in field-goal percentage defense at the rim. With Ryan Kalkbrenner protecting the rim, Creighton ranks 45th in denying shots at the rim.

Furthermore, neither team surrenders many free-throw attempts to their opponents; Creighton ranks 1st and Texas Tech ranks 9th, per KenPom. Lastly, both teams play relatively slowly — ranking outside the top 200 in adjusted tempo. For that reason backing the under will be the play this afternoon.

NHL pick today: Nashville Predators 3-way ML over Arizona Coyotes (-160), 7:00 pm ET

Arizona heads to Nashville having lost 3 straight games, each by multiple goals. This will also be the Coyotes’ 7th straight game, so the lengthy road trip and constant traveling might be taking a toll on the team’s performance. They rank bottom 5 in goals per game and goals against per game, so struggling to score the puck while also surrendering plenty of scoring chances for opponents isn’t a great recipe for success.

On the other hand, the Predators have endured a mediocre start to the season — but they should find success in this game. In particular, Nashville’s strong defense and goaltending should be able to shut down the Coyotes’ young forwards. Juuse Saros is still a great netminder and the Preds’ offense should give him enough goal support to pull out a win in regulation time.

NBA pick today: Boston Celtics -6 over Chicago Bulls (-110), 8:10 pm ET

Boston has won 9 games in a row and has mostly looked untouchable, but tonight they will face a huge test in Chicago against a team they’ve covered against just once in 7 games. The Celtics are most likely getting Marcus Smart back from injury, while Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown are red hot. They are 5-0 SU in their last 5 road games and they have beaten Chicago 14 times in the last 20 meetings.

The Celtics are winning by an average of 11.4 points per game during this streak and after losing the first meeting at United Center, they will be motivated to get revenge. For that reason backing Boston will be the play.

NFL pick today: San Francisco 49ers vs Arizona Cardinals – Under 42.5 points (-110), 8:15 pm ET

The 49ers’ defense has been outstanding. In 4 of their last 6 games they have kept opponents to 16 or fewer points, so it’s difficult to imagine Colt McCoy thriving against the San Francisco defense if Kyler Murray is sidelined once more. The Niners have also given up the fewest yards and 3rd-fewest points in the league. They boast a defensive line that is a brick wall and has given up the fewest rushing yards, along with a secondary that has allowed the 4th-fewest passing yards. For that reason you can expect the 49ers’ defense to limit Arizona’s scoring and for this game to stay below the total.
