I'm an NFL handicapper 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 is back in full swing, and we’ve got a solid six-game slate on Tuesday. What better way to make things more interesting than with another mega parlay? We’ve got a three-leg bet to kick things off, going with three puck lines at significant plus money to ensure a big payout.

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 today’s six games.

Pittsburgh Penguins -1.5 (+180)

Vegas Golden Knights -1.5 (+225)

Minnesota Wild -1.5 (+215)

Parlay odds: +2722

This parlay offers the chance of a huge payout north of 25/1 with FanDuel Sportsbook. I like all of these individually, and the Golden Knights in particular have a lot of value. Let’s break them down one by one:

Pittsburgh Penguins -1.5 (+180)

The Penguins won the first game of this set against the Capitals 6-3, and I think they’re going to win by multiple goals again. Getting +180 certainly presents a lot of value. Pittsburgh has scored at least four goals in all but one of their victories, so they’re exactly the kind of team I like to back on the puck line. Washington’s defense has also been shaky at best, another thing I’m looking for with my puck line plays. Washington just came back from a COVID-19 delay, and the time off clearly didn’t do them any favors. It’s not like they were playing well before the break, having lost three straight games. Pittsburgh has now won all three meetings between these teams this season, so they clearly have the Caps’ number.

Vegas Golden Knights -1.5 (+225)

Las Vegas’ defense is peaking right now, so I think it’s a good time to take them on the puck line with such a big number. Over their past three games, they’ve given up two total goals. If they can keep it up on that end, getting +225 here is a steal. Colorado had to take nearly two weeks off due to COVID-19 issues of their own, and it clearly knocked them out of their rhythm as they just got shutout in their first game back. The Knights are 10-2-1 this season, and Colorado was having offensive issues even before their shutdown, so I don’t think their most recent effort was necessarily a fluke.

Minnesota Wild -1.5 (+215)

Hopefully the Wild can bring us home here in the nightcap. Minnesota also hasn’t played in a while due to COVID-19 issues (sensing a theme?), but it shouldn’t matter too much against the Kings. Sure Los Angeles is coming off a win over last place San Jose, but they had lost five games in a row before that. They’ve scored more than three goals just three times in 11 games, so their upside is severely capped. Minnesota has won three of the four meetings between these teams this season, including the most recent one by a score of 5-3. If they can score five goals again here, they’re going to cover this puck line easily.
