There are only 4 games on the NHL slate tonight, but that doesn’t mean we can’t have a chance at a big payday. I’ve got a nice 2-leg parlay in mind for tonight’s action, and I will share that here this morning.  On top of this article, be sure to check out our full game previews for each game tonight. You can also follow Pickswise on Twitter for daily betting content. While there, feel free to give me a follow as well.

This parlay is paying out north of 9/1 odds on FanDuel Sportsbook.

Stars -1.5 (+168) 

Oilers -1.5 (+300) *alt puck line

Parlay Odds: +972

Dallas Stars -1.5 (+168) over Los Angeles Kings

After a respectable 2-2 start on a 4-game road trip to start the season, the Dallas Stars will welcome to Los Angeles Kings to town for their home opener. The Stars are getting solid goaltending, primarily from Braden Holtby. While he is not yet confirmed as the starter tonight, it’s hard to believe he won’t get the nod. Holtby is currently sitting on a 1.75 goals-against average (GAA) and .947 save percentage (SV%). Anton Khudobin himself has 2.49 GAA and .909 SV%. Khudobin’s start is not stellar, but still more than formidable for facing a team currently 18th in the NHL in goals for per game. The Stars have a good matchup in their home opener regardless of the starter in net.

Anze Kopitar and Drew Doughty have 8 and 7 points respectively of the 9 goals scored in Los Angeles’ first 3 games of the season. It’s a great start for each of those guys, but not sustainable. If the Kings are going to make any kind of push this season, they’ll need secondary contributions. So far, they’re not getting them. Look for the Stars to roll in their home opener.

Edmonton Oilers -1.5 (+300) over Vegas Golden Knights *alt puck line

The Edmonton Oilers are off to a 3-0-0 start. They are on the second half of back-to-back, but the good news is that they will be facing a Vegas team that has really struggled with Mark Stone and Max Pacioretty out. Vegas is 1-2-0 on the year. If Vegas was healthy, this game would look a little different, but they haven’t won a game since opening night, and they have really struggled to score without Stone and Pacioretty. With Mike Smith now on IR, Edmonton is starting Stuart Skinner in net. We don’t really know what we will get from him, but Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl allow the Oilers to be able to give up goals and still have a chance to win. They have each averaged 2 points per game over the last 2 seasons. We’ll take our chances with Edmonton on an alternate puck line against a depleted Vegas squad.
