Oct. 18, 2018 marks just the second day in sports' history that features at least one game from all six of the NFL, NBA, NHL, MLB, MLS, and NCAAF leagues, which calls for a special helping of parlay action. A sports-equinox parlay, if you will. We will put together one game from each of the six leagues and parlay them for the payout of a lifetime. 


NBA: Miami Heat @ Washington Wizards (-5.5, -115)

The Wizards are playing their first game of the season, while the Miami Heat are on the second game of a back-to-back. Miami has also been struck pretty heavily by the injury bug, with four of their key players out tonight. The Wizards getting this favorable matchup at home for their season opener gives them every reason to cover tonight's spread.

NFL: Denver Broncos @ Arizona Cardinals (Over/Under 42, +100)

The Broncos have given up almost 600 yards rushing over the past two games and have one of the worst rushing defenses in the league. Cardinals back David Johnson should be poised for a huge night. Although the Broncos' offense has been far from dominant, the Cardinals' defense can have the same said about them.


MLB: Boston Red Sox @ Houston Astros (-1.5, +110)

The Red Sox are one win away from heading to the World Series, but the Astros aren't going to go down without a fight, especially at home and especially with their ace, Justin Verlander on the bump. David Price has been terrible in the playoffs and on the road, so expect the Astros to come out swinging as their fighting for their playoff lives. 


NHL: Detroit Red Wings @ Tampa Bay Lightning (-280)

Simply put, Detroit is one of the leagues worst team and Tampa is at home as one of the leagues best teams. Detroit is 0-6 ATS this year with a goal differential of -16. Tampa is 3-1 on the year this year and 2-1 ATS. Tampa should have no problem getting the win tonight being in front of their home crowd and against a Red Wings team that can't seem to figure it out yet this year.


MLS: New England Revolution @ Real Salt Lake (-180)

We don't know much about MLS soccer, but when the better team is playing at home, it just makes sense to take them. Real Salt Lake is 13-12-7 with 46 points while the Revolution are having a rough run this year, sitting at 9-12-11.


NCAAF: Stanford @ Arizona State Under 58.5 (-110)

ASU has averaged fewer than 21 points against Stanford in their last four games at home in Tempe and the average total between these two teams over their last seven meetings in Tempe is 41.25. ASU scored 13 and 20 points in their two games this season against ranked opponents, with the first coming in Tempe against a then-No. 15 Michigan State team. The spread here is tight and could fall either way, but historical trends point to this one going under. 


This six-sport parlay opportunity is one that very rarely comes around if you're able to nail it, buy yourself a nice steak dinner cause your bank account will be golden for quite some time depending on how much you throw down.
