The current NFL standings, heading into the final couple of weeks of the regular season, are very much a tale of two conferences. In the Eastern Conference, all 8 playoff spots have already been claimed, which means that all we have left to figure out is the seedings. It’s not quite so clear cut in the West, where there are still 4 open spots to be filled. It’s a tight race in the West, although we do have a few teams slipping into high gear heading down the stretch. It’s going to be a crazy couple of weeks as teams jostle for position, but let’s see if we can look at this week’s schedule and pick some winning parlays so you can bet against the NHL Odds.
Parlay Picks to Wager On From April 18th to 20th | NHL Betting
NHL Parlay – Avalanche, Golden Knights, Hurricanes – Monday
The Colorado Avalanche have long since punched their playoff ticket and will go into the playoffs as the #1 seed in the West. They are still trying to lock down the President’s Trophy, so don’t expect them to ease up versus the Washington Capitals.
The Las Vegas Golden Knights are in the fight their life, as they currently sit below the playoff line with time running out. They are, though, 7-2-1 in their last 10 games and should be able to handle the New Jersey Devils.
There is a great battle going on atop the Metropolitan Division, with the Carolina Hurricanes currently clinging to the top spot. They come into the new week on a 2-game losing skid, but I like them to snap out of it against the Arizona Coyotes.
NHL Parlay – Lightning, Maple Leafs, Rangers – Tuesday
The Tampa Bay Lightning have seen their stock fall over the past couple of months, but they are trying to claw their way back and have won 2 in a row. I think they can keep the positivity going with a win over the flailing Red Wings
The Toronto Maple Leafs have been in great form of late, winning 3 in a row and going 8-1-1 in their last 10 games. They will want to keep their momentum going in the final couple of weeks and look like a lock versus the Flyers.
We spoke earlier about the battle atop the Metropolitan Division. The Hurricanes are on top, but the New York Rangers are breathing down their neck. I like them to keep the pressure on at home versus the Winnipeg Jets.
NHL Parlay – Oilers, Avalanche, Golden Knights – Wednesday
At this point, it’s only a matter of time before the Calgary Flames clinch the Pacific Division, but the Oilers want to keep winning and delaying the inevitable. I like them to do that on Wednesday with a win over Dallas.
Given how they are playing right now, it is impossible to bet against the Colorado Avalanche. They come into this week having won 9 in a row and should be able to keep that rolling. I like them again versus the Seattle Kraken.
We have already spoken about how it is desperation time for the Vegas Golden Knights. They are taking a real run at nabbing one of the Wild Card spots in the Western Conference, so look for them to continue that push with a win over the Washington Capitals.
