NHL Best Parlays of Week 18

NHL Week 18

For this week’s NHL parlay, expect tons of scoring in two Canadian contests. The Moneyline is in play as the LA Kings take on the St. Louis Blues. Edmonton vs. Montreal should be heavily watched by bettors that like goals, while the Jets and Canucks look to hit their goal-scoring stride at the same time.

Edmonton Oilers vs. Montreal Canadiens

May 10th, 7:00 P.M., Bell Centre

Kicking off this free NHL parlay is a game featuring the hottest point-scorer in the NHL right now. Connor McDavid has been terrorizing the league this season and I think the Canadiens are his next victim. 

Of course, McDavid isn’t the only reason Edmonton is scoring a lot – but he is a HUGE factor in the Oilers’ goal-scoring department. I appreciate that Edmonton is a high-scoring team, while also allowing their fair share of goals against. This is the perfect combination for total goals bettors like myself. 

The majority of Edmonton’s games have seen the Oilers allow 2 or more goals. This bodes well as I think taking the over will be your best NHL bet. 

Edmonton isn’t the highest-scoring team in the league, but they have been on fire as of late. The Oilers have scored 3 or more goals in 5 straight games. 

 Montreal is the perfect team for the over because they won’t shut you out and they will also pot a couple of goals. This season, the Habs have just one shutout. Granted, it was against the Edmonton Oilers, but Montreal rarely limits their opposition to zero goals. 

Like Edmonton, Montreal has played the majority of their games scoring 2 or more goals. Not being elite on defense or offense is a blessing for total goals.

I like the over in total goals (5.5) -135 for my first pick for this parlay slip. 

Vancouver Canucks vs. Winnipeg Jets

May 10th, 8:00 P.M., Bell MTS Place

If there is one thing the North Division has produced, it’s goal scoring. Monday night, I see that trend continuing between the Canucks and Jets.  

Vancouver has played in high-scoring games as of late. Whether they are on the receiving end or dishing out goals, the Canucks have seen tons of goal scoring. 

In 7 games this season, the two teams have combined to average 5 goals per game. Why do I think this contest will hit the over in total goals at 5.5?

When the Canucks and Jets meet, one team seems to pop off on offense. We have seen high-scoring games in the past between these teams. What I am banking on is both Vancouver and Winnipeg hitting their stride at the same time. 

The over has been killed in earlier meetings because one team has not done their part to hit the over in total goals. Vancouver has seen high-scoring games, while the Jets are scoring at a solid pace as well. 

North Division games have seen lots of scoring and I am banking on that trend continuing, 

I am adding the over for total goals (5.5) at -120 to my parlay slip 

St. Louis Blues vs. Los Angeles Kings

May 10th, 10:00 P.M., Staples Center

I am sorry Kings fans. But finally, the pain is over. It’s been a tough regular season but at least the end is near. With only three games left on their schedule, I think it’s only fitting I take the Kings to lose one more time on the Moneyline. 

For this last leg of my parlay picks, I think taking the Blues to defeat the Kings straight up will be your best NHL bet.  

Surprisingly, the Kings are 5-1-1 against St. Louis this season, but I can’t be fooled by previous events. Overall,  the Kings are a terrible team and I need to look at the bigger picture. While I wouldn’t declare all of LA’s wins over St. Louis as flukes, I think the Kings’ winning percentage will go down against the Blues on Monday. 

The Blues are playing shorthanded, but I think they are still well equipped to defeat the Kings. St. Louis is preparing for playoff hockey, so they can’t take the foot off the gas pedal. They might be an early playoff exit, but I think on Monday night the Blues take down LA at home. 

Let’s add the Blues’ ML at -135 as our final pick for this parlay slip.
