Passionate about handicapping sports with a particular focus on hockey. Canadian born but a proud Boston Bruins fan. Also a supporter of the Tennessee Titans and the Toronto Blue Jays. When I am not watching sports you can find me on the golf course. Love me some Tiger!

With the regular season winding down this will be the last big slate of the regular season as 18 teams faceoff on Monday. Our hockey expert has identified the best bets of the day and included them in a three-team mega parlay. However, be sure to check out our picks for all nine of Monday’s NHL matchups here as well.

But right now, let’s break down our three-team mega parlay:

Boston Bruins -1.5 (+155)

Edmonton Oilers (-115)

Carolina Hurricanes -1.5 (+190)

Parlay odds: +1282

Boston Bruins -1.5 over New York Islanders (+155)

The New York Islanders will head to Boston to take on the Bruins in their final game of the regular season. The Islanders are stumbling their way into the playoffs, going 6-7-2 in their last fifteen games. It’s worth noting that all six of their wins came against non-playoff teams. Conversely, the Bruins are in the middle of one of their best stretches of the season as they have an impressive 11-3-1 record since the trade deadline. The Bruins won the two most recent head-to-head games and outscored the Islanders by a 7-1 margin.

The addition of Taylor Hall has received a lot of attention in Boston while Brad Marchand quietly puts up an MVP-worthy season. Marchand is third in the league with 67 points on the year and needs just two more goals to reach the 30-goal mark. Expect a motivated Bruins club who looks to bounce back after a disappointing third-period collapse versus the Rangers on Saturday.

Be sure to check out our full game preview for Boston Bruins vs. New York Islanders.

Edmonton Oilers over Montreal Canadiens (-115)

The Edmonton Oilers have won four of their last five games thanks to the brilliance of the league’s best player Connor McDavid. The Oilers Captain now has an astonishing 100 points on the season and leads the scoring title by 21 points over his teammate Lean Draisaitl.

Edmonton is averaging four goals per game over their last five and have clicked at 40% on the power-play in that span. The Canadiens will be undermanned as they will be without Price, Weber, Gallagher, and Danault for this game. Tomas Tatar has no goals in his last 10 while Corey Perry hasn’t scored in 18 straight. The Canadians will have no answer for this red-hot Oilers offense.

Carolina Hurricanes -1.5 over Nashville Predators (+190)

The Nashville Predators topped the Carolina Hurricanes 3-1 on Saturday night to clinch the playoffs and set up a first-round series versus Carolina. While the Predators are locked into the four seed in the division, the Hurricanes still have a chance for the Presidents Trophy, which would secure them home ice throughout the entire playoffs. The Canes have dominated the Predators this year, winning six of the seven matches and outscoring them by a 24-12 margin.

The Canes have had one of the best-ranked powerplays all season long, but they have done exceptionally well against Nashville. Against the Predators, the Hurricanes have scored on 40.9 percent of their opportunities with the man advantage. Carolina has been able to hold the Predators’ powerplay to just 8.7%, which gives the Hurricanes a huge advantage in special teams. The Predators accomplished their goal on Saturday, but the Hurricanes still have work to do. Expect a statement win by the Hurricanes, as they win this one by more than a goal.

Be sure to check out our full game preview for Carolina Hurricanes vs. Nashville Predators.
