NHL parade pick
Parlay: Coyotes +1.5 (-127) + Jets +1.5 + Penguins Moneyline (+277)
Coyotes +1.5 (-127) : Don’t look now, but Arizona is one of the hottest teams in the NHL.
The Coyotes have won three of their last four games and have one point in five straight games. They’re not just competing against other players in the league either, facing playoff teams like the New Jersey Devils, Colorado Avalanche and Minnesota Wild during this streak.
Stellar goaltenders are the main culprit as their .938 save percentage is fifth over the past week, according to Natural Stat Trick.
They face a Calgary team struggling to win by margin. The Flames have won by more than two goals in just one of their last nine and two of their last 14. They are actually the second least profitable team to return to the puck line this year (-17.36 units), per Scores and odds.
Other betting choices
Rolls +1.5 (-152) : It really feels like another disappointing season is brewing in Carolina.
There are a lot of concerns on the ice as the playoffs approach. The Hurricanes have lost their last two games by a score of 7-0, including an important game with the New Jersey Devils.
Off the ice, it’s even worse. Andrei Svechnikov is struggling with a knee injury that could potentially be a torn ACL by Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman. Illness would sideline the striker for the rest of the season, a blow for a team not rich in goals.
Winnipeg, meanwhile, has shaken off a five-game losing streak with a point in four of its last five games. The Jets have covered that number in five of their last seven outings.
Penguins Moneyline (-375) : Montreal has lost seven straight games and things don’t get any easier on the road against Pittsburgh.
The Penguins are starting to find their game. They’ve won seven of their last nine games, earning two huge wins over the Tampa Bay Lightning and another over the New York Rangers. They also can’t let go, still battling for a playoff spot in the ultra-deep Eastern Conference.
Their offense is the unit that finds consistency having scored more than three goals in eight of Pittsburgh’s last nine outings.
He should find no resistance against the porous defense and the Canadiens’ goaltender. They’ve allowed 23 goals in their last five games, including eight against the Avalanche on Monday.
