After a massive Saturday on the ice, we wind things down a bit with just 3 games this Sunday. However, it features the second straight day with a Stadium Series game, which is also the first Battle of New York this season. Of course, that is part of our NHL parlay picks for today, and we have a play on each matchup going.

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

Rangers 3-way ML (+100)

Coyotes +1.5 (-120)

Penguins -1.5 (+175)

Parlay odds +908

New York Rangers 3-way ML (+100) over New York Islanders

As promised, we’re starting things off with the Battle of New York. These Big Apple teams haven’t squared off in nearly 14 months, so it’s safe to say that it is a long-anticipated one. It was a Rangers win in that last matchup, and that’s how we see this one going. It was also a multi-goal victory, but we’re sticking with the 60-minute line this time around. 

There’s no doubt that the Rangers began fading heading into the All-Star break, but they have since left no doubt that they are the true contenders they have looked like for 95% of the season. Mika Zibanejad and the guys have now won six straight games, most recently scoring 7 goals. That should be the difference in today’s meeting. Both teams have tout defenses, but the Rangers have the superior offense, which includes more depth. With three lines full of All-Stars, we’re starting our NHL parlay picks with the Rangers to win in regulation.

Arizona Coyotes +1.5 (-120) over Colorado Avalanche

Next up is a Central Division matchup, and we’re intentionally not labeled it as a rivalry. The Avs are just 2 seasons removed from hoisting the Stanley Cup, while the Coyotes have been one of the worst teams in the NHL over those 2 seasons. So, why on Earth are we backing Arizona? Well, teams seem to play down to the ‘Yote’s level, and Clayton Keller and the boys seem to thrive in those scenarios. 

If you’d like to know what we mean, just ask the Toronto Maple Leafs. Arizona has upset them outright in 4 straight meetings! That’s a team very similar to Colorado, and we’re only asking the Coyotes to keep things close. They’re more than capable of doing so, because they beat the Avs outright the last time these teams met. In fact, they’ve won 2 of the last 3 meetings, each of which were this season. Therefore, we’re taking the rare underdog puck line with the second leg from our NHL parlay picks for today. 

Pittsburgh Penguins -1.5 (+175) over Los Angeles Kings

The other later game is an inter-league matchup that we don’t see often. Although the Kings won’t be traveling in from all the way across the country, they are still not in an ideal situation. They were just up at TD Garden in Boston facing the Bruins yesterday, and now take on the other team in black and yellow. The Penguins were one of the handful of teams that had off yesterday, and they actually haven’t been on the ice since Thursday. 

That was a smooth 4-1 victory, and they need every win they can get to remain playoff contenders. Like the Rangers vs. Islanders game, the difference here should be the offense of Pittsburgh. LA has a solid defense to rely on but lacks the true offensive firepower that can be kickstarted by Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin and the Pens. If you prefer to play it a bit safer, take the 60-minute line, but for the added value to our NHL parlay picks, we’re rolling with the puck line.
