We have reached the stage of the NHL season where the real Stanley Cup favorites are beginning to emerge. There is, though, still a lot of hockey to be played and history has shown us that favorites and betting odds can change rather quickly. All it takes is a bad run of form or a couple of key injuries for a team to see their luck change dramatically. That is a conversation for another time, though, as we are simply focusing on the games in the immediate future, which means once again picking some parlay plays for this week so you can bet against the NHL Odds.
Parlay Picks to Wager On From Mar. 15th to 17th | NHL Betting
NHL Parlay – Rangers, Oilers, Canucks – Tuesday, March 15
Only 1 game on the schedule for Monday night, so let’s jump ahead to Tuesday and start by taking the Rangers over the Anaheim Ducks. Anaheim is on the slide, losing 4 in a row and falling out of the playoffs, so another tough one for them here.
The Edmonton Oilers have been a little up and down of late, going 4-5-1 in their last 10, but they come into this week on the heels of back-to-back wins. They look like a good bet at home to the Detroit Red Wings.
The Vancouver Canucks are trying to play themselves in to playoff contention and are doing it with a run that has seen them go 6-3-1 in their last 10 games. They will host the New Jersey Devils, who are just 8-18-2 on the road this season.
NHL Parlay – Senators, Flames, Lightning – Wednesday, March 16
Let’s start this ticket off with what is certainly a very risky pick and one that you might want to change. Neither the Senators nor the Blue Jackets are inspiring a ton of faith, but I do like Ottawa to edge this one on home ice.
The Calgary Flames are coming off a loss to the Colorado Avalanche on the road, which is nothing to be ashamed of, but they are still 6-3-1 in their last 10 and opening up a lead in the Pacific. They should have no problems taking down the New Jersey Devils.
The Tampa Bay Lightning have gone 6-4-0 in their last 10 games, and while that is respectable, it also means they have lost some ground to Florida in the Atlantic. Look for them to pick up both points on the road versus the Kraken.
NHL Parlay – Oilers, Kings, Canucks – Thursday, March 17
As mentioned earlier, the Oilers appear to be pulling themselves out of a slump, winning 2 in a row, and have what looks to be an easier week. I like them at home against the Buffalo Sabres, who are 5-games below .500 on the road.
The LA Kings have quietly gone on a nice run in the past month or so and have pulled themselves into 2nd in the Pacific Division. They will host the San Jose Sharks, who come into this week having won 2 in a row. Not an easy one, but I am still on the Kings to win.
The Detroit Red Wings are on a tough West Coast swing. They were already blanked by the Flames and have another tough one against the Oilers. I think they get swept in this leg of their trip, with the Canucks sealing the deal here.
