We’re going for a hat-trick with our NHL mega parlay today, having cashed Tuesday’s mega parlay at +940 odds after Monday’s +850 odds win!

Similar to Monday’s small 4-game slate, tonight’s 3-game slate still has plenty of juice. Each of the games features good teams and there is only one team with a losing record in action. These have the makings of great games beginning with the Senators visiting the Maple Leafs, followed by the Panthers visiting the Capitals, airing on TNT and MAX, followed by the Kings visiting the Golden Knights also on TNT and MAX.

If you’re looking to have some betting action, check out our NHL mega parlay at +798 odds below. You can also read our NHL predictions for picks on all of today’s games.

Maple Leafs ML & over 6.5 (+160)

Panthers vs Capitals under 6.5 (-115)

Kings vs Golden Knights over 6 (-118)

NHL mega parlay odds: +798

Maple Leafs ML & over 6.5 (+160)

Neither Ottawa nor Toronto has had much success over the past week. But in terms of who looks better to win a game between a couple of struggling teams, it’s the Leafs. They looked to have snapped out of it with a thrilling 6-5 overtime win over the Lightning on Monday, while Ottawa has dropped 5 of the last 6 and will have another uphill battle tonight.

The over has been more common for the Senators this season as it is 6-2-2 overall. The Leafs, meanwhile, have allowed 11 goals in their last 2 games and both Ottawa and Toronto rank in the top 10 in the NHL in goals scored per game. They also both rank in the bottom 10 in the NHL in goals allowed per game. That is a great recipe for a high total.

Panthers vs Capitals under 6.5 (-115)

The under has been rolling for both the Panthers and Capitals lately. The under has hit in 4 of the Panthers’ last 6 games, as well as in 6 of the Capitals’ last 7. The total has also gone under in Washington’s last 5 games at home.

Opposite of the Ottawa-Toronto matchup, this game features teams that struggle with goalscoring but have been decent at goal prevention. So far this season, the Panthers and Capitals rank 22nd and 31st in the NHL respectively in goals scored per game. Team strengths and results this season indicate the unders trend has a good chance to continue.

Kings vs Golden Knights over 6 (-118)

I’m going back to the well on game totals, but for this matchup, it is the over that has been prominent for both teams. The over is 7-4-0 in Kings games this season and 6-3-1 in the Golden Knights’ last 10 games. Head to head, the over has hit in 9 of the last 12 games between Los Angles and Vegas dating back a couple of seasons.

Both teams rank in the top 6 in the NHL in both goalscoring and goal prevention, but it is the goalscoring strength that has led to consistent high totals early on this season and historically between these teams. The Kings and Golden Knights are very familiar with each other and when they meet, totals typically climb. Look for more of the same on Wednesday.
