There are three NHL games on Saturday and there is a ton of value with these games, even though the slate is smaller. Let’s take a look at a couple of NHL parlays to make your Saturday a winning one.
Tampa Bay Lightning ML +105 / Carolina Hurricanes ML -130 / Edmonton Oilers -1.5 +120 // $10 bet pays $69.79
The Toronto Maple Leafs have had issues closing out series in the playoffs, and I don’t see it changing in this game. The Maple Leafs had a chance to win in Game 6, but couldn’t get it done, and now all the pressure is on them. In each of the last five seasons, the Maple Leafs have lost in the opening round of the playoffs. This has to be on the back of the minds of the Maple Leafs, and I think the Lightning will score the opening goal. Once they score the opening goal, the Maple Leafs are going to fold.
The Carolina Hurricanes looked dominant in the last game, scoring five goals at home, and I expect that is going to continue in this game. The Bruins also only scored one goal in that game, and at home all season, the goaltending and defense has been very strong. The Bruins are going to struggle to score, and the Hurricanes will get the job done.
The Edmonton Oilers are going to have no issue cruising to the victory against the Los Angeles Kings. In the last game, the Oilers’ offense was again strong, scoring four goals, and that was enough to win on the puck line. In this game, look for the Oilers to score four or five goals, and that is going to be the difference as the Oilers get the job done. Back the Oilers on the puck line.
Carolina Hurricanes, Boston Bruins over 6 -110 / Carolina Hurricanes ML -130 // $10 bet pays $23.78
At worse, this game finishes with six goals, but I expect it’s going to go over. Each of the six games has finished with at least six goals. I expect the Hurricanes are going to score at least five goals, like they did the last time the Hurricanes were at home. Back the over six to cash.
