We are now less than 2 weeks away from the NHL All-Star Game and what we see as the midway point of the season. That also means that the trade deadline is looming large, with teams now needing to decide whether or not to go all-in on a Stanley Cup run. As we have seen in the past, a couple of timely additions at the deadline can make a huge difference, as those additions very often plug holes or take care of weaknesses on certain teams. There is still some hockey to be played before all of that, though, and we have a very busy week ahead of us. Let’s take a look at our daily parlay picks for the week so you can place your bets against the NHL odds.
Parlay Picks to Wager On From Jan. 24th to 26th | NHL Betting
NHL Parlay – Bruins, Wild, Avalanche – Monday
The battle for playoff spots is raging in the Eastern Conference, with some very tight battles going on in both divisions. The Bruins are in that mix and playing great hockey, going 8-2 in their last 10. I like them at home to the Ducks.
The Minnesota Wild have slipped down to 4th in the Central Division after a 5-3-2 run, but with back-to-back wins under their belts, they are on the move and should continue to roll against the lowly Montreal Canadiens.
There is perhaps not team in the NHL hotter than the Colorado Avalanche at the moment. They have won 6 in a row and gone 9-0-1 in their last 10. You have to like them at home against the Chicago Blackhawks.
NHL Parlay – Penguins, Senators, Islanders – Tuesday
The Penguins are healthy again and making a big move in the Metropolitan Division. They have won 5 in a row and 8 of their last 10. Tuesday will see them take on the struggling Arizona Coyotes on home ice in what should be a lopsided affair.
Both the Buffalo Sabres and the Ottawa Senators will almost certainly be missing out on the playoffs this year, so not really much for either team to play for. The Sabres won the earlier meeting this season, but I like Ottawa to get revenge here.
It’s another battle of the bottom feeders on Tuesday night, with the Philadelphia Flyers hitting the road to face the New York Islanders. The Flyers are on an awful 11-game losing skid, and while the Islanders have been poor this season, they are 7-2-1 in their last 10 games.
NHL Parlay – Capitals, Maple Leafs, Avalanche – Wednesday
The Washington Capitals have dropped out of the #1 spot in the Metropolitan Division, going all the way down to 4th. While they haven’t been terrible, 4-4-2 in their last 10 is well off the pace they have been setting. That said, I like them at home versus the Sharks on Wednesday.
The Toronto Maple Leafs are in 3rd in the Atlantic Division and doing a decent job of keeping pace with the leaders, going 7-2-1 in their last 10 games. They will be at home to the Ducks, who are sitting 2 games below .500 on the road.
The Avalanche are on such a hit streak right now that it becomes difficult not to play them in every single game. I have them winning on Monday and I like them to continue rolling when they host the Boston Bruins on Wednesday.
