We have had the luxury of 17 games over the past 2 nights, so it’s no surprise we’re due for a smaller slate on Wednesday. There are just 3 games on the board, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t value. Despite the lighter action, we have still found the best ways to target all 3 of the games going tonight for an incredible payout. We have already cashed a +1115 mega parlay in this young NHL season, so let’s hit another one!

Before we dive in, be sure to check out all of our NHL picks for tonight’s games.

Florida Panthers -1.5 (-115) over Philadelphia Flyers

The NHL didn’t cut the Flyers any slack with their schedule this week. Wednesday’s game will be the second night of a back-to-back, and that doesn’t tell nearly the whole story. Philly will be on the road once again for a little Florida road trip. However, taking on the Tampa Bay Lightning and Florida Panthers on consecutive nights isn’t actually a Disney World vacation. The Lightning have won 2 of the last 3 Stanley Cups and it was the Panthers who won last year’s Presidents’ Trophy for the league’s best record. 

Meanwhile, the Flyers finished in last place in the Metro Division and had the 2nd-worst record in the Eastern Conference. They made virtually no offseason moves, whereas the Panthers became an even more complete team than they already were. Florida acquired Matthew Tkachuk from the Calgary Flames, who is already tied for the team lead in points with 4 in the first 3 games. The Flyers being primarily the same team as last season does not bode well for this matchup. They allowed the 6th-most goals per game and scored the 2nd-fewest goals per game. With the Panthers being the only team in the NHL to average more than 4 goals per game last season, expect them to roll through the Flyers.

Colorado Avalanche -1.5 (+105) over Winnipeg Jets

While it was the Panthers that finished last season with the highest-scoring offense last season, the Avalanche were not far behind. The defending Stanley Cup champions likely could have edged out Florida in the scoring department if not for injuries. Regardless, they are still just as much of a juggernaut and remain the favorites to win this season’s Stanley Cup. 

There was some consideration to take the over in the matchup instead, but we’re going to trust Colorado to continue their dominance instead. These are another 2 teams that came into this season looking much like they did last year. That’s not quite what Jets fans would like to hear, as the Avs handled the Jets with relative ease last season. They defeated them by a combined score of 14-4 in their 2 meetings in Colorado last year. While they did lose the last matchup of the season, that was also just prior to the playoffs when the Avalanche were resting key skaters. That clearly won’t be the case on Wednesday, so expect Colorado to take care of Winnipeg.

St. Louis Blues -1.5 (+150) over Seattle Kraken

Although there is just the 3-game slate, there seems to be plenty of mismatches on the board. That includes the nightcap between the Blues and Kraken. Seattle is still in just its 2nd-ever season and the Blues have been a perennial playoff team. They made it to the 2nd round last season before falling to the eventual champion Avalanche. Meanwhile, the Kraken finished in last place in the Pacific Division and had the 2nd-worst record in the Western Conference. 

St. Louis certainly played a role in such a poor record as well. In their 3 matchups last season, the Blues sank the Kraken by a combined score of 11-2. The worst of those meetings was actually the one in Seattle, which St. Louis won by a final of 5-0. The Blues still have 8 of their 9 skaters who scored at least 20 goals last season, so they should be just as potent as ever. They’ve also only had to play just 1 game so far this season, so they will be well-rested and healthy. The Kraken were just held to a single goal in a 5-1 loss at home the last time they were on the ice, so they should be the one singing the blues following this contest.
