Parlays are a great way to get value from some less than desirable odds. They’re also a great way to smack down your bankroll, so tread lightly. This betting guide will offer some insight on a couple of parlays that might have some value from Wednesday’s handful of games.
Rangers (-350), Jets (-190), Golden Knights (-225)
Parlay Odds: +183
The first parlay is taking advantage of a couple of favorable home teams facing awful road teams. Add a must-win situation for the Vegas Golden Knights on the road, and there is some value to be had in combining the first three games on Wednesday’s slate.
Only the Montreal Canadiens have won fewer games on the road than the Philadelphia Flyers, and they’re both on the road on Wednesday, at the New York Rangers and Winnipeg Jets, respectively. Vegas heads to Chicago to take on a Blackhawks team that has only won 13 home games all season.
The Rangers have won both games against the Habs this season. The Jets lost the season’s lone meeting with the Flyers back in February, but Philly averages just 2.40 goals per game on the road—second-worst in the NHL. The Flyers have also lost their last four games in Winnipeg. Vegas is taking on a Chicago team that gets outscored 3.65 to 2.63 at home, on average, meaning there’s a good chance at a win for the Golden Knights when they need it most.
MTL-NYR Over 6 (-120), PHI-WPG Over 6.5 (+100), LAK-SEA Under 6 (-110)
Parlay Odds: +600
Putting together a parlay of totals is tricky, but it helps that most of Wednesday’s over/under numbers opened at an even 6. Not having to worry about the half-goal hook means that a push on any of the games still keeps your bet live. The lone under bet in this parlay is between the late game, where the Los Angeles Kings haven’t gone over in their last four contests. The Seattle Kraken have gone over the total just once in their last four. In three meetings between these teams this season, the total has gone over six just once.
The Canadiens’ last three games have featured 27 goals combined, with their opponent getting no less than five in any of those games. The Rangers have also given up three goals in each of their last two games. New York will score against Montreal, and it looks like they might give up a couple, too.
There have been at least seven goals scored in four of Philadelphia’s last five road games, and the Jets are 10th in the NHL in goals scored at home (3.39). Winnipeg also gives up nearly three goals per game (2.92) at home. The Jets have also scored at least four goals in five of their last eight games.
