Monday’s NHL three-team mega parlay (+926 odds): Bruins look to even up Capitals series with rebound win in Game 2

Monday’s NHL three-team mega parlay (+926 odds): Bruins look to even up Capitals series with rebound win in Game 2

Three NHL playoff games are scheduled for Monday night and our hockey expert has identified the best bet from each game and included them in a three-team mega parlay. Be sure to check out our picks for all three of Monday’s NHL matchups here as well.

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

Boston Bruins -1.5 (+210)

Carolina Hurricanes (-185)

Colorado -1.5 (+115)

Parlay odds: +926

Boston Bruins -1.5 over Washington Capitals (+210)

The Washington Capitals started off the 2021 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs in exciting fashion as they took game one over the Bruins 3-2. Nic Dowd redirected a T.J Oshie shot past Tuukka Rask 4:41 into overtime to give them a 1-0 lead in the series. The Bruins did a great job at limiting the Capitals scoring chances throughout the entire game, but Washington capitalized on some lucky breaks and bounces to get enough goals to win the game.

The Bruins will have a huge advantage in goal on Monday as Vitek Vanecek left the game early in the first period and was replaced by Craig Anderson. Anderson set aside 21 of 22 shots but he did not look as strong as the box score would suggest. Look for the Bruins to take advantage of some juicy rebounds that they were unable to finish on Saturday. Expect a statement win by the Bruins who should take this one by more than a goal, evening up the series at one game apiece.

Carolina Hurricanes over Nashville Predators (-185)

The Carolina Hurricanes finished the regular season with a very impressive 36-12-8 record to earn themselves first place in the Central Division. With the number one seed, the Hurricanes are rewarded with a favorable matchup versus the Nashville Predators. The Hurricanes were a perfect 6-0 against the Predators this year prior to dropping the last two games of the season in which they rested some players.

The Hurricanes have been one of the most consistent teams of the league all season long as they rank inside the top ten in all offensive and defensive categories. One main advantage in this series will be the Hurricanes’ second-ranked power-play versus the Predators’ 29th ranked penalty-kill. The Hurricanes were 20-3-5 on home ice this season and will now have an enthusiastic fanbase in the building to cheer them on. Expect a dominant home win for the Hurricanes over a Predators team that has struggled on the road this year.

Colorado Avalanche -1.5 over St. Louis Blues (+115)

The Colorado Avalanche won their last five games of the season to earn themselves the league’s best record and capture the Presidents Trophy. The Avalanche are many people’s pick to win the Stanley Cup which should come as no surprise given their strong statistics.

The Avalanche are the league’s highest-scoring team, averaging 3.52 goals per game. Defensively they are allowing just 2.36 goals against per game, which means they are outscoring their opponents by an average of 1.16 goals per game! Conversely, the Blues are averaging 2.98 goals while also allowing 2.98 goals against. The most impressive thing about Colorado’s season is they were able to dominate despite many injuries to key players and a run-in with COVID. The Blues played well down the stretch to get into the playoffs but that is as far as they will go this season. Look for the Avalanche to make quick work of the Blues and start things off with a big win on Monday.
