Along with rivalry week of the college football season, Saturday brings us sports bettors 9 games of NHL action. It is sure to be an action-packed day of sports, and we are putting together a 3-leg mega parlay at + odds for today’s hockey slate. We hit last night’s mega parlay at +810 odds, so we are looking for back-to-back winners. Along with this parlay, be sure to check out our full game previews for each matchup today. You can also follow Pickswise and myself on Twitter for added NHL betting content throughout the season.

Panthers -1.5 (+118)

Oilers ML (+112)

Jets/Flames under 5.5 (-102)

Parlay odds: +815

Florida Panthers -1.5 (+118) over Seattle Kraken

This game features a pair of teams with a giant gap between them. The Kraken are the last place team in the Pacific Division, while the Panthers are the best team in all of hockey. Offensively, the Panthers are as good as it gets, ranking 2nd in expected goals per 60 minutes, 2nd in goals for per game and 1st in goals for. The Kraken are no where near that good, ranking 29th in expected goals for per 60 minutes and 18th in both goals for and goals for per game. Defensively, the Kraken are ranked higher than the Panthers in team defense, as they are 8th in expected goals against per 60 minutes and the Panthers are 14th, but when it comes to actually keeping the puck out of the net, the Panthers are better. The Panthers are top 5 in goals against and goals against per game, whereas the Kraken are bottom 5 in both categories. This is due to the Kraken’s horrendous goaltending. Both goalies they use, Chris Driedger and Philipp Grubauer rank 68th and 77th, out of 77 goalies, in goals saved above expected. There is no edge for the Kraken as the Panthers are just better in every aspect of the game. The Panthers should be able to roll.

Edmonton Oilers ML (+112) over Vegas Golden Knights

The Oilers and Knights are mirror images of each other as they both lean on their offense to carry them and are very suspect in the defensive end. Offensively both teams are top 10, with the Knights ranking 3rd in expected goals for per 60 minutes and the Oilers ranking 10th. Production-wise, they flip as the Oilers rank 2nd in goals for where the Knights rank 8th. Defensively, these teams are lost, as they both rank in the bottom 10 in expected goals against per 60 minutes, with the Knights ranking last, as well as bottom 10 in goals against. The edge comes from the game-breakers the Oilers have in Leon Draisaitl and Connor McDavid, as they rank 1st and 2nd in the league in scoring. The Knights have one of, if not the worst defenses in the league and these 2 all-star players should be able to expose that.

Jets/Flames under 5.5 (-102)

Of late, two things seem likely: Calgary scoring and Winnipeg not scoring. Winnipeg’s lack of ability to score right now probably won’t be enough for Calgary to carry an over. It feels like a classic “unstoppable force meets an immoveable object,” with one team coming in scoring 19 goals in their last 4 games and the other scoring 4 goals in their last 4 games. Ultimately it will come down to Calgary’s ability to prevent offense. Even if the Flames stay hot and put up 3 to 4 goals, it looks like Winnipeg’s team trend lately wouldn’t carry the balance of the total over 5.5. Look to the under.
