We have put together a 4-pick cross-sport parlay that will take you right through Thursday, 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 +1260 at DraftKings Sportsbook.

NHL pick today: Winnipeg Jets vs St. Louis Blues – Over 6 goals (-105), 8:07 pm ET

The over has been absolutely rolling for both of these teams lately. For the Jets, the high totals have been due to them carrying the weight of the over by scoring in bunches. For the Blues, it has been more a mix of allowing and scoring goals, but more so allowing goals. St. Louis has allowed an ugly 41 goals in their last 8 games. That is an average of 5.13 goals allowed per game.

The Jets on the other hand, have scored 28 goals in their last 6 games for an average of 4.67 goals scored per game. The total has gone over in 6 of Winnipeg’s last 8 games and in 7 of St. Louis’ last 8 games. In their respective last 10 games, their over-under record is 14-6 in those combined 20 games. Recent form and team strengths and weaknesses look great for the over to continue trending between these teams on Thursday.

NFL pick today: Los Angeles Rams +6.5 over Las Vegas Raiders (-105), 8:15 pm ET

The biggest issue with this game is laying points on the road with Derek Carr considering his track record. In his career as a road favorite he is only 5-12-1 ATS and 8-10 straight up. The Raiders have lost 7 straight ATS as road favorites and are only 2-5 straight up. Their only 2 wins in this span have come by 1 point and 3 points. Carr is 0-4 ATS and an 1-3 straight up as a road favorite of more than a field goal in his career, which is where the Raiders find themselves this week. For that reason, backing the Rams to cover will be the play.

NBA pick today: Houston Rockets -1.5 over San Antonio Spurs (-115), 8:40 pm ET

With 2 wins in their last 3 games against really tough opposition, the Houston Rockets are showing signs of life. The latest win came at home in double OT against Philadelphia, as they spoiled James Harden’s return. Now their attention swings to probably the worst team in the league right now, but the Rockets cannot afford to relax.

Tank mode is in full swing for the Spurs as they just got destroyed by Phoenix 133-95 for their 11th loss in a row. They’ve failed to cover in 9 games in a row, including 5 straight at home and 5 in a row against Western Conference opponents. Based on their wins over Philadelphia and Phoenix over the past week, backing the Rockets will be the play.

College Basketball pick today: Colorado State Rams +4 over Colorado Buffaloes (-110), 9:00 pm ET

The question in this matchup is if Colorado State is going to get enough stops in order to keep the game close or win outright. The Rams’ offense is already good, and should improve with point guard Isaiah Stevens back. However, their defense ranks just 118th in KenPom’s adjusted defensive efficiency.

Colorado State allows one of the highest three-point attempt rates to their opponent in the entire country. Colorado ranks just 224th in three-point percentage, so perhaps the Colorado State defense will indeed be good enough. For that reason, backing the Rams will be the play for tonight.
