We have a relatively small slate of 5 NHL games tonight, but that doesn’t mean we can’t aim for a big pay day. We are putting together a 3-leg mega parlay at +988 odds for tonight’s action, and breaking down each leg in this article. Along with this parlay, be sure to check out our full game previews for each matchup tonight. You can also follow Pickswise and myself on Twitter for plenty of NHL betting content throughout the season.

Now let’s get to it.

Edmonton Oilers -1.5 (+180)

Vegas Golden Knights -1.5 (+112)

Devils/Jets under 6 (-120)

Parlay odds: +988

Edmonton Oilers -1.5 (+180) over Seattle Kraken

Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl continue to dominate. They rank 1 and 2 in the league in terms of player points, and show no signs of slowing down. When these 2 teams met a month ago, the Oilers came away with a 5-2 win on home ice — with McDavid and Draisaitl combining for 5 points in the win. Tonight’s matchup could be more of the same. One main issue for the Kraken in their inaugural season has been their lack of depth. Edmonton should be able to take advantage of that. Until the Oilers cool down, it’s worth backing their potent offense, especially against a poor Seattle defense. Only 4 teams are allowing more goals per game than the Kraken (3.48), so McDavid, Draisaitl and company should be ready to roll.

Vegas Golden Knights -1.5 (+112) over Arizona Coyotes

The edge in this game comes from the offense, and it all favors the Golden Knights. Vegas is 4th in expected goals for per 60 minutes, ranks 10th in goals scored and is averaging 3.18 goals per game, good for 11th in the league. On the other side, the Coyotes are one of the lowest-scoring teams in the league. Arizona ranks 31st in expected goals for per 60 minutes and goals scored, and ranks dead last in goals for per game with a mark of 1.83. That is not exactly ideal. The offensive gap between these teams shows even more when you look at the recent goal scoring in the last 10 games. In that stretch, the Coyotes have scored 3 or more goals just 3 times, while the Knights have scored 3 or more goals 7 times. Look for Vegas’ offense to make the difference in this one.

New Jersey Devils vs Winnipeg Jets under 6 (-120)

Neither of these offenses are putting up elite numbers. The Devils rank 18th in goals per game (2.90), while the Jets rank 24th (2.68). They also rank 22nd and 30th in power-play percentage respectively. Playing on the second half of a road back-to-back, it’s tough to see the Devils potting many goals in this one. Connor Hellebuyck is well-rested for Winnipeg in net, and he has had success against New Jersey in his career. In 7 career starts against the Devils, Hellebuyck is 5-1-1 with a strong .929 save percentage and 2.11 GAA. The Jets have struggled to get consistent offense this season, and they were held scoreless against the lowly Coyotes in their last outing. They should be better in this one, but the under is still the play.
