Let’s break down each of the legs one by one.
Philadelphia Flyers 3-way ML over the Tampa Bay Lightning (+130)
The Philadelphia Flyers are entering this game riding a seven-game losing streak. They will have a good opportunity to put an end to the seven-game slide on Sunday. They will be catching the Tampa Bay Lightning on the second half of a back-to-back, and the first half saw them play in a high tempo game that required overtime to solve. It is safe to say the Lightning will be tired coming into this game. The Lightning will have their backup goalie, Brian Elliot, starting in goal. The Flyers know a thing or two about Elliot as he was a member of the Flyers for the better part of four seasons. This should be an advantage for them.
The Flyers have only played one game since November 28th, so they are extremely well rested. I expect they will come out flying and take advantage of the tired Lightning who are without two of their best players in Brayden Point and Nikita Kucherov. Take the Flyers in regulation for some good value.

Toronto Maple Leafs vs. Winnipeg Jets Over 6 Goals (-105)
The two high-flying offenses of the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Winnipeg Jets will be clashing on Sunday night. The Jets are coming off of a huge eight goal offensive output against the New Jersey Devils on Friday night. They finally got Mark Scheifele and Nikolaj Ehlers going, who had three and two goals in that game respectively. They will be catching the Maple Leafs who are on the heels of a back-to-back, with the first game requiring a shootout to solve. The Leafs defensive zone coverage may be sloppy due to the fatigue of Saturday’s game and the travel. They also will not have their star goaltender Jack Campbell in the net.
Bettors should not worry about the Maple Leafs pulling their weight offensively to help this over cash. They are currently scoring 3.08 goals per game, and this is only going to continue to rise. Forward Mitch Marner will not be in the lineup on Sunday, but even without him the Leafs can still produce. This game should surpass the six-goal total with ease.

Vegas Golden Knights -1.5 over the Calgary Flames (+190)
This is the first meeting this season between these two Pacific Division powerhouses. The Vegas Golden Knights are finally getting healthy and are starting to look like the Golden Knights team that we expected to see entering this season. They have scored 12 goals in the past two games. Max Pacioretty is on fire since his return from injury with six points in four games.
The Calgary Flames are no easy opponent, as they are 8-1-1 in their last 10 games. It will be interesting to see how they stack up against a powerhouse team like the Golden Knights because up to this point, their schedule has been relatively easy. The Flames had an off-day in Vegas on Saturday, which is definitely something to consider. The Golden Knights are one of the most dominant teams in the league on home ice, and I expect they will come out flying against the Flames. They should be leading this game late into the third period, which brings in the empty net goal opportunity should it be needed. Take the Golden Knights on the puck line to juice up the odds of your mega parlay.
