I love having action all around the sports world, but my primary betting interests and handicapping lie with the NHL and MLB.

The NHL is back to a huge schedule on Saturday as fans are spoiled with 13 games beginning at 2:00 pm ET. Among several fantastic matchups, this slate is highlighted by heavyweight and rivalry games between the Lightning-Stars, Flyers-Penguins and Bruins-Maple Leafs. Ending the night will be Canucks-Flames, who just made a trade with each other, and Capitals-Golden Knights. There is so much to watch for on Saturday it is almost overwhelming — obviously in a positive way. Hopefully you can get through any obligations and take in every bit of a great Saturday of NHL hockey.

I have created a 3-game NHL mega parlay for tonight’s action at +915 odds, which you can read below. You can also read our NHL predictions for picks on all of today’s games.

Winnipeg Jets -1.5 (-108)

Detroit Red Wings -1.5 (+170)

St. Louis Blues vs Arizona Coyotes over 6.5 (-105)

NHL mega parlay odds: +915

Winnipeg Jets over Chicago Blackhawks -1.5 (-108)

This is a plain lopsided matchup. The Blackhawks have managed 2 surprising wins in their last 4 games. Otherwise, they are 7-14-0 on the year and their 14 points are the second fewest in the NHL. The Jets have proven through the quarter way point of the season that not only should they contend for a playoff spot, but they also have a chance to push for the Central Division title.

Winnipeg enjoyed an 8-1-0 run in November but has since lost 3 straight. If there is a bright side, it was that those losses were just 3-2, 2-0 and 3-1 — and all against very good teams. The Jets get a favorable matchup and they have a chip on their shoulder to break out of this mini slump. Look for Winnipeg to come out with some extra jam to run up the score.

Detroit Red Wings over Montreal Canadiens -1.5 (+170)

The Canadiens have won just 5 out of their last 15 games and 1 out of their last 6 at home. In their last 3 losses they have fallen by a combined 11 goals. That is an average loss by 3.67 goals. Lately, when the Canadiens lose they lose big.

The Red Wings, meanwhile, are playing very good hockey. They have won 4 out of their last 5 games by a combined score of 18-7, which includes 4 and 3-goal wins against the Devils and Bruins, respectively. They are 7-2 against the spread on the road this season compared to the Canadiens’ 5-7 record against the spread at home. This one sets up well for Detroit.

St. Louis Blues vs Arizona Coyotes Over 6.5 (-105)

This will already be the 4th and final meeting this young season between the Blues and Coyotes. The scores of the first 3 games have been 6-2 Coyotes, 2-1 Blues, and 6-5 Blues. With 22 goals scored in 3 head-to-head matchups between these teams, the average game total is 7.33. This season when the Blues and Coyotes meet, totals climb.

These teams are neck and neck through 22 games played. As evident, they have both put up and allowed big offensive performances against one another. Regardless of the winner, goals appear to be common. Recently, both teams have been volatile in terms of scoring and allowing goals in bunches. The volatility makes for a high total once again.
