Hopefully hockey fans were able to enjoy a pleasant Easter, or just a relaxing Sunday, with just a single NHL game in action. That’s because we’re right back into the Stanley Cup playoff grind with 8 games on the board tonight. Better yet, one of the first games is a potential Eastern Conference Finals preview, and it’s the first of our NHL parlay picks, so let’s get right into it.

Along with our NHL mega parlay, be sure to check out all of our NHL predictions for today’s action!

Maple Leafs 3-way ML (+145)

Oilers -1.5 (+125)

Kraken -1.5 (+110)

Parlay odds +1057

Toronto Maple Leafs 3-way ML (+145) over Florida Panthers

As promised, our NHL parlay picks begin with a potential Eastern Conference Finals preview. The Boston Bruins and New York Rangers will have something to say about that, but for now, we get to enjoy this Atlantic Division rivalry for the 3rd time this season. They split the first 2 meetings, with the home team winning each one. Therefore, that already gives Auston Matthews and company a leg up, not to mention the fact that he just recorded his 2nd 60-goal season in the past 3 years. 

Furthermore, Toronto still remembers losing to the Panthers in the playoffs last year after winning their first postseason series since 2024. About two weeks ago, betting against Florida would have been far from ideal, but they have since given up their pole position in the Atlantic and have simply not looked as strong. They’re just 4-5-1 in their last 10 games, while the Leafs are 6-3-1 and coming off a road shutout win. Now back on home ice, we’re backing Matthews and company to start our NHL parlay picks.

Edmonton Oilers -1.5 (+125) over St. Louis Blues

For the second leg of our NHL parlay picks, we’re swapping to a road team. Frankly, when it comes to Connor McDavid and the Oilers, we aren’t concerned with where they’re playing. Along with Leon Draisaitl, they’re an offensive juggernaut, and the Blues just had arguably the most embarrassing losses of the entire season. Not only were they on home ice against the worst team in the NHL, the San Jose Sharks, who we’ll discuss more in a moment, but they were completely shutout. 

If the Blues are losing 4-0 against the likes of the Sharks while clinging to any remaining playoff hopes, there’s no telling what the firepower of the Oilers can do. They only won the meeting between these teams in February by one goal, but we trust them to put on a better showing tonight. The momentum is with them as well going 7-2-1 in their last 10 games, as is the motivation. They are now within just a handful of points of the Vancouver Canucks for the Pacific Division lead. All those factors have us trusting Connor McDavid and company with our NHL parlay picks.

Seattle Kraken -1.5 (+110) over San Jose Sharks

We saved the best for last, as the last leg of our NHL parlay picks is our best bet of the bunch. After all, picking on the San Jose Sharks has been quite profitable this season. They have the absolute fewest points in the entire league with just 42 thanks to their 17-48-8 record. While the Kraken may not have another Cinderella postseason run like they did last season, they’re still the far superior team. 

The Sharks may have a bit too much confidence heading into tonight’s game after a rare win, but that also came after a 9-game winless streak. Not only does that victory have us getting more valuable odds, but so does Seattle’s recent loss. However, that came to the Dallas Stars, arguably the best team in the Western Conference. Regardless, when these teams first met this season, we saw a 7-1 Kraken victory, so we’re backing them tonight as well to close out our NHL parlay picks.
