Wednesday NHL three-team mega parlay (+1125 odds): Golden Knights host Wild as top teams in West collide
Hockey fans will be treated to six games in the NHL on Wednesday night. Zdeno Chara gets the night started facing off against his old team in Boston while the Sharks and Avalanche conclude the evening. Be sure to check out our picks for all of Wednesday’s NHL matchups.
But right now let’s break down our three-team mega parlay:
Vegas Golden Knights -1.5 (+185)
Los Angeles Kings ML (+100)
Colorado Avalanche -1.5 (+115)
Parlay odds: +1125
Vegas Golden Knights -1.5 over Minnesota Wild (+185)
This will be the second of two consecutive games between these two teams as the Knights came back from a two-goal deficit in the third period to win the game 5-4 in overtime. Mark Stone and Max Pacioretty were sensational for the Knights. Stone had five primary assists while Pacioretty had two goals and assist. The loss for the Wild snapped their six-game win streak. During that surge the Wild only had one win against a strong team so it appears that the market might be overvaluing them a touch right now. The Wild currently don’t have a single scorer in the top 55 in points in the league and their leading goal scorer has just eight goals. The Wild also own the league’s worst power-play that is only successful 7.9% of the time. Take the Knights to win this one by more than a goal.

Los Angeles Kings ML vs Arizona Coyotes (+100)
Both the Los Angeles Kings and Arizona Coyotes are firm believers that they have a chance at that fourth spot in the West Division. Expect a hard-fought battle that ultimately sees the Kings come away with the two points on home ice. Los Angeles has won six of their last eight games and has already beaten Arizona twice this year. Anze Kopitar leads the charge for the Kings as he leads the West with 19 assists and is fifth league-wide.
The Coyotes have lost two in a row and sit second last in shots on goal. The Wild will be forced to go to Antti Raanta in goal as Darcy Keumper is sidelined with a lower-body injury. Raantaa has struggled thus far which is evident by his 4.00 GAA and .895 SV%. Take the Kings.

Colorado Avalanche -1.5 over San Jose Sharks (+115)
The Colorado Avalanche have yet to show us that they are the powerhouse that everyone thought they would be coming into the season. On Monday they suffered an embarrassing loss to Sharks by the score of 6-2. As the Wild and Kings start to string along wins the Avalanche are starting to feel the pressure of the playoff race. Look for the Avalanche to get their revenge on the Sharks and use this game a springboard to a winning streak of their own.
Prior to Monday’s game, the Avalanche had taken both games against the Sharks by a combined score of 10-3. The Avs should be able to control the majority of the possession as they are the fifth-best team in faceoff percentage, compared to the Sharks who are sixth-worst. To go along with their number one ranked penalty kill, the Avalanche outmatch San Jose in almost every defensive aspect. After opening up a two-goal lead on Monday the Avalanche fell flat allowing six unanswered goals to the Sharks. Expect a big response from the Avalanche as they take advantage of a poor Sharks team that has a -14 goal differential. Take the Avalanche -1.5!
