Friday NHL four-team mega parlay (+1613 odds): Islanders to win fifth straight game

We’ve got seven games on deck for Friday in the NHL, and we’ve got a four-leg parlay at over a 16/1 payout to go with it. Our expert hit his NHL mega parlay last night at nearly 20/1 odds, and we’re back with another one to try to make it two in a row.

Before I reveal this mega parlay, don’t forget to check out our picks for the side and total on every NHL game first. We’ve been on a roll this hockey season, and our experts are on fire right now. Don’t miss out on their picks for all seven of today’s games.

Here’s our four-team parlay for Friday:

New York Islanders -1.5 (+180)

Washington Capitals -1.5 (-105)

Minnesota Wild ML (-125)

Colorado Avalanche -1.5 (-135)

Parlay odds: +1613

For this play, we’ve got three favorites on the puck line and one on the money line. Let’s break each of them down.

New York Islanders -1.5 (+180)

The New York Islanders have won four straight games after a shootout win over the Philadelphia Flyers on Thursday night. The Islanders lead the season series with the Rangers 2-1 and will welcome them to their home ice for the first time this season. The Islanders are 17-1-2 at home this season and will have the edge in this one.

Brock Nelson scored his 15th goal of the season on Thursday and also scored the only goal in the five-round shootout. The Rangers followed up their 8-4 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins with an underwhelming 5-2 loss to the same team just two days later. If you asked any Rangers fan to describe their team in one word, many of them would say “inconsistent” and that was on full display on Thursday night. Alexander Georgiev will be making his first start in the crease for the Rangers since March 19. He has been very shaky this season, allowing an average of 2.92 goals per game for a save percentage of .897.

Washington Capitals -1.5 (-105)

Both the Washington Capitals and Buffalo Sabres are playing the second leg of back-to-back situations on Friday, but they didn’t face each other on Thursday night. That could add a new dynamic to this particular situation. Both teams might be a little tired for this one, but the Capitals are a significantly better team than the Sabres.

In six meetings, Washington has beaten Buffalo five times–including 6-0 in the most recent one. During that game, the Caps won 55.8 percent of faceoffs, which allowed them to dominate the majority of possession and dictate the pace of play. Additionally, Washington outshot Buffalo 30-23; in the first period they held the Sabres to only two shots. In their six meetings, Washington has outscored them 24-13.

The Capitals are averaging four goals per game when they play the Sabres and they’ve covered the spread three times. Carter Hutton is expected to get the start for the Sabres, which is great news for the Caps. He is 1-10-1 this season with a brutal 3.47 GAA and .886 SVP.

Minnesota Wild ML (-125)

The Minnesota Wild are coming off one of their best games of the season on Wednesday night in an 8-3 win over the Colorado Avalanche. The Wild scored four power-play goals on only five opportunities in Wednesday’s win. Kirill Kaprizov had two goals on the power play to bring his season total to a team-leading 16 goals. Kevin Fiala is coming off of his first career hat trick which included two goals on the power play as well.

Minnesota has struggled to take advantage of their power play opportunities this season, so this is a huge boost as they fight for a top spot in the West Division. Now they hit the road to take on the St. Louis Blues for only the second time this season. The Wild won the first meeting 2-0 in large part due to a 37 save game from goaltender Cam Talbot. The St. Louis Blues have lost seven out of their last eight games to put them three points out of the last playoff spot in the West Division.

Colorado Avalanche -1.5 (-135)

The Colorado Avalanche have skyrocketed to second in the NHL in points with 56 and sit at the top of the West Division as they get set to play the last-place team in the Anaheim Ducks. Colorado has won five of their last six games and is 7-1-2 in their last 10. On top of one of the best lines in the NHL, the Avalanche have secured their No. 1 goalie position with Philipp Grubauer–who has a 2.00 goals against average to go along with is .919 save percentage plus a league-leading five shutouts.

The Ducks have lost three of their last four games and are 5-12-4 on home ice this season. Ryan Getzlaf and Rickard Rakell are both out with injuries and they are two of their top five point-producers. John Gibson has been decent, but he won’t be able to handle the Avalanche’s offense. The Avs have won by more than one goal in nine of their last 12 wins.
