We have put together a 4-pick cross-sport parlay that will take you right through Wednesday, including picks from the NBA, NHL, College Football, and College Basketball. One pick is taken from each sport with and a winning ticket would give us a very nice payout with odds of +1228 at DraftKings Sportsbook.

College Football pick today: Buffalo Bulls +2 over Central Michigan Chippewas (-110), 7:00 pm ET

Buffalo likes to run the ball, which is likely their key to winning this game. If they run the ball effectively, they likely win, and the Chippewas are not particularly adept at stopping the run.

To put it simply, Buffalo is the better team. Buffalo is more likely to execute on offense, and the Buffalo defense should be able to slow down the rushing attack of the Chippewas enough to make the difference in the game. For that reason, backing Buffalo to cover will be the play.

NHL pick today: Pittsburgh Penguins vs Washington Capitals – Under 6.5 goals (-110), 7:30 pm ET

The Penguins’ current production — or lack thereof — is a good start toward the under in this game. If they hold to that 2.29 goal-per-game average, which was skewed by a 5-goal performance, then it will be up to Washington to carry the weight of the total if the over is to hit.

However, the Capitals are averaging just 2.86 goals per game this season, which is good for just 21st in the NHL. Washington scored 3 goals in just 1 of its previous 5 games. While both teams appear to still be figuring out their identity, their lack of offense production has been consistent. For that reason, the under will be the play tonight.

NBA pick today: Detroit Pistons vs Boston Celtics – Under 226 points (-110), 7:40 pm ET

None of the last 4 Pistons games came even close to the current number, mostly because they have been unable to keep up with opponents on offense. Detroit is 26th in offensive rating right now, averaging just 107.7 points per game. On the road that drops all the way down to 103.8 per game, the 4th-lowest mark in the league.

The total has cashed on the under in 4 of the last 5 Pistons games. The last 10 meetings between these teams are averaging 214.7 points per game and although the 3 most recent games have all gone over, the average amount of points scored in those contests was 219 points. For that reason, backing the under will be the play.

College Basketball pick today: Bellarmine Knights +9.5 over Louisville Cardinals (-110), 9:00 pm ET

The reason to like Bellarmine tonight is because of the quality of shots their offense can generate. Last season, Bellarmine ranked 81st in KenPom’s adjusted offensive efficiency metric, thanks in large part to their steady ballhandling and great shooting. They do lose their star point guard from last year, Dylan Penn, but we should expect Bellarmine’s offensive system to still generate high-quality looks.

On the other end of the court, Bellarmine’s defense was very poor, ranking 312th in adjusted defensive efficiency. Last season, Bellarmine gave up the sixth-highest three-point attempt rate to their opponents in the country. However, this may work against a Louisville team that shot just 30.9% from three last year. The Cardinals also have essentially one guard on the entire roster, so Bellarmine’s strategy of denying post touches make the Knights worth a play tonight.
