NHL Thursday mega parlay: Three puck lines with great value

There are seven games this evening in the NHL. We’re looking to parlay three of the games that will hopefully pay big. This parlay is just over an 15/1 payout for you. But before we dive in, be sure to check out all of our picks and previews for every game tonight.  You can also follow Pickswise on Twitter for plenty of daily betting content.

This parlay is paying out north of 15/1 odds on FanDuel Sportsbook.

Hurricanes -1.5 (-141)

Islanders -1.5 (+135)

Flames -1.5 (+170)

Parlay odds +987

Let’s break down each of the legs one by one.

Carolina Hurricanes -1.5 over the Montreal Canadiens (-141)

The Carolina Hurricanes are very well rested entering this game as they have been sitting idle since December 18. This is a very one-sided matchup in favor of the Hurricanes. The Hurricanes rank eighth in the NHL averaging 3.28 goals per game, while the Montreal Canadiens are giving up a horrendous 3.56 goals per game. On the flip side of that, the Hurricanes only surrender an average of 2.14 goals per game, which is good for best in the NHL. The Canadiens’ lineup is depleted by Covid-19 and injuries and should be no match for the Hurricanes. There’s no need to overthink this one; take the Hurricanes on the puck line.

Be sure to check out our full game preview for the Montreal Canadiens vs. Carolina Hurricanes.

New York Islanders -1.5 over the Buffalo Sabres (+135)

It is no secret the New York Islanders are not off to a great start to this season. The recent pause in play due to Covid-19 concerns should be a benefit to the Islanders and allow them to reset. Goals have been hard to come by for the Islanders, but they are facing a less than average defensive team in the Buffalo Sabres. They are allowing an average of 3.43 goals against per game. The Islanders will be catching the Sabres on the second half of a back-to-back and therefore will have the rest advantage. The Islanders arena is very tough to play in. I expect the Islanders to put on a defensive clinic and they should be able to score a few on the weak Sabres. Take the Islanders on the puck line.

Calgary Flames -1.5 over the Seattle Kraken (+170)

The pause in the NHL schedule could not have come at a better time for the Calgary Flames. They are riding a four-game losing streak and had a chance to hit the reset button. This is a perfect opportunity for the Flames to put an end to that losing streak. They will be catching the Seattle Kraken, who are now without one of their key players, Brandon Tanev, on the second half of a back-to-back. The Flames are very stingy defensively, only allowing an average of 2.21 goals against per game — which is second best in the entire NHL. It is going to be a struggle for the Kraken who aren’t the most offensively talented team to generate scoring chances against the Flames. The Flames penalty kill is also third best in the NHL, operating at an 85.7% success rate. All of this great defense is complemented with a lethal forward group that is led by Johnny Gaudreau and Elias Lindholm. The Flames should be leading late into the third period, which will allow for an empty net opportunity if needed. Take the well rested Flames on the puck line.
