I'm an editor here at Pickswise who was raised in a household full of sports fanatics. Since I unfortunately never had LeBron James' jumping ability I wasn't able to make it to the NBA, and chose writing about sports as the next best thing. An avid sports bettor myself, I'm excited to get to write about the industry as it gets set to take off across the country. Buckle up.

The NHL unfortunately only had two games on Wednesday, but we’re back with a jam-packed slate on Thursday, and what better way to celebrate than with another NHL mega parlay? We’ve got a four-leg bet to kick things off, going with one money line, and three puck lines at plus-money.

We’re going big and bold, so let’s not waste any more time. We’re diving in, but don’t forget to check out our picks for the side and total on every NHL game first. We’ve been on a roll this hockey season, and our experts are on fire right now. Don’t miss out on their picks for each of tonight’s monster slate.

Pittsburgh Penguins ML (-110)

Tampa Bay Lightning -1.5 (+150)

Carolina Hurricanes -1.5 (+200)

Vegas Golden Knights -1.5 (+110)

Parlay odds: +2833

This parlay offers the chance of a huge payout north of 25/1 with FanDuel Sportsbook. I like all of these individually, and the biggest underdog play has a lot of value. Let’s break them down one by one:

Pittsburgh Penguins ML (-110)

Oddsmakers are treating this game as a pure tossup, when I think the Penguins have a clear edge. Sure the Islanders won when these teams played a few days ago, but it was a close 4-3 matchup that Pittsburgh led in the third period. Right before that New York had been ice cold, losing five games in a row. The Penguins are coming into this one off extended rest, giving them extra time to clear their heads and get ready for this rematch. Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin are going to start producing big time any day now, and the fact that Pittsburgh has still been solid even without getting all that much from that duo speaks volumes.

Tampa Bay Lightning -1.5 (+150)

I really haven’t like what I’ve seen from the Panthers recently, so I’m playing Tampa Bay on the puck line. Florida just played a two-game set against the lowly Red Wings, and they split the series while losing 5-3 on aggregate score. Any team that manages to lose a game by three goals to Detroit isn’t one that I want to back moving forward. The Panthers’ offense got off to a fast start, but they’ve faded fast. The Lightning are scorching hot, having won each of their last six games. They haven’t just been winning they’ve been dominating, as their last five games they’ve won by a combined score of 23-6. Captain Steven Stamkos is averaging well over a point per game, and this offense is putting up at least five goals on a seemingly nightly basis.

Carolina Hurricanes -1.5 (+200)

Speaking of teams that got off to hot starts offensively but have since nosedived, the Stars certainly fit that bill. They’ve lost five of their last six games entering this one, and have only scored one goal in each of their last two contests. With that kind of offensive production, I love Carolina on the puck line since they’ve got a ton of scoring upside. In fact, the Hurricanes have scored at least four goals in five of their past six games, and I don’t see any reason to believe Dallas will score more than two here. The Hurricanes are very well balanced on offense, so you don’t have to worry about one guy having an off night ruining things.

Vegas Golden Knights -1.5 (+110)

To wrap things up with the nightcap, I think the Golden Knights are going to win this one easily. They’ve won each of their last three games, scoring at least four goals each time and five twice. The Ducks on the other hand have been held to two goals or fewer in 10 of their 14 goals, so they’re exactly the kind of team that I look to fade on the puck line. Vegas let Anaheim hang around and only beat them 5-4 on Tuesday, and they aren’t going to take them lightly this time around. The Golden Knights were actually up 4-1 in the third period before taking their foot off the gas, and assuming they stay locked in here they’ll win this one by multiple goals.
