Cross-Sport Parlay: The Best Sports Weekend This Year

Parlaying Bets Across Four Sports over the Weekend

Now is the best time to be a sports fan. For this weekend, all “Big Four” sports leagues will be in action along with the MLS Playoffs plus the biggest UFC event of the year. You can parlay a mixture of all six sports and reap the rewards while enjoying a day full of entertainment. Find their best betting odds on the online sportsbook as we put together an easy four-leg parlay.

Best Bets To Parlay From MMA to NFL

Packers (-210) vs Commanders (+175)

  • Spread: Packers -4½ (-110), Commanders +4½ (-110)
  • Day/Time: Sunday, Oct. 23rd, 1:00 p.m. ET
  • Stream: NFL Game Pass

Capping off the parlay is some NFL action between Green Bay and Washington. It may be hard to trust the Packers’ NFL odds after they laid an egg against the Jets last week, but the Commanders don’t have the same feistiness as that team. Ron Rivera is all but done as coach of Washington.

The Commanders are 2-7 in their last nine conference games. These wins came over the Bears, the worst offense in the NFL, and the 2021 Giants. Even if Aaron Rodgers isn’t producing as much, the Packers’ superior defense will neutralize Washington and get them the win.

  • Pick: Packers -210
  • Parlay: Lineker, Avalanche, Suns, Oliveira-Makhachev Under 2½, and Packers (+626)

Kraken (+250) vs Avalanche (-290)

  • Puck Line: Kraken +1½ (-105), Avalanche -1½ (-115)
  • Day/Time: Friday, Oct. 21st, 9:05 p.m. ET
  • Stream: NHL TV

There are no “gimmes” on the NHL odds but this matchup is as close as it gets. You have the Kraken with some terrible goaltending facing the defending Stanley Cup Champions on home ice. The Kraken is 29th in save percentage and 28th in PDO. Their penalty kill stinks having allowed seven goals on 20 attempts.

While Colorado is struggling to keep the puck away from its own net, this team is much more potent than Seattle. The Avalanche average 4.25 goals per game versus Seattle’s 2.80. Their power play leads the league at a whopping 53.9 percent and is scoring on 13% of their shots versus just 8.7 from Seattle. Bet online on Colorado to blow through Seattle.

  • Pick: Colorado Avalanche -290

Suns (-170) vs Trail Blazers (+150)

  • Point Spread: Suns -4 (-110), Trail Blazers +4 (-110)
  • Day/Time: Friday, Oct. 21st, 10:05 p.m. ET
  • Stream: NBA League Pass

The Suns got a measure of redemption by coming back from a 22-point deficit against Dallas. This team is resilient and one of the most reliable in terms of NBA odds. So we’re taking Phoenix to handle business on the road against a resurgent Trail Blazers team. The Suns covered 57.5% of their road games last season and went 26-8 on the moneyline as a road favorite — a 75% winning rate.

Damian Lillard also struggled at home against Phoenix last season, hitting just 11 of his 31 field goal attempts while turning the ball over four times. And in 2020-21, Lillard averaged a -16.7 net rating in three games against Phoenix despite putting up over a 31-point average. Phoenix is more efficient and better defensively hence the pick.

  • Pick: Phoenix Suns -170

Oliveira (+155) vs Makhachev (-190)

  • Totals: Over 2½ (+130), Under 2½ (-160)
  • Day/Time: Saturday, Oct. 22nd, 4:00 p.m. ET
  • Stream: UFC Fight Pass

In what could be the biggest fight for the UFC this year, our money is on Charles Oliveira to upset Islam Makhachev. While we love the UFC odds on “Do Bronx”, a better bet is for this one to go under the 2½ totals the oddsmaker placed. Of Oliveira’s UFC-leading 19 finishes, 18 were under the 2½-round mark. In fact, of his 30 fights, only three went past this total (they were all decisions).

Oliveira will either finish Makhachev quickly or get finished himself. His last fights were both back-and-forth slugfests that saw him get hurt then hurt and finish the likes of Michael Chandler and Justin Gaethje. Makhachev could meet the same fate or he finds a way to finish Oliveira before the halfway mark of the fight.

  • Pick: Under 2½ (-160)
