Yesterday we built our same-game parlay around the Winnipeg Jets vs Vegas Golden Knights. Much like the remainder of Tuesday’s Stanley Cup playoff matchups, only one team came to play.
We believed the Jets and Golden Knights would be close, with the Jets covering the spread and the game barely hitting the over. We successfully predicted the Jets would cover the spread, and with six total goals scored, the game barely hit the over.
However, the Vegas Golden Knights decided not to show up for game one of the Stanley Cup playoffs and got run out of their arena, losing 5-1.
With VGK’s lackluster effort, our daily parlay record drops to 0-3, but we are now 5-4 on individual picks. Yet, our beloved and long-absent parlay blog betting championship belt is so close to coming home.
We’re getting that belt back with Wednesday’s multi-game parlay.
Los Angeles Lakers over Memphis Grizzlies (-115)
Can Ja Morant shoot the basketball? Your guess is as good as anyone not in the Memphis Grizzlies organization.
The Grizzlies need Ja Morant being Ja to defeat this deep Los Angeles Lakers roster. The Lakers are listed as the moneyline favorites after winning game one and considering Morant’s injury status. However, the public money is still slightly favoring the Grizzlies.
The Lakers have won three of the four matchups this season, and we expect them to head back to Los Angeles up 2-0 in this series, especially if Morant’s ability to shoot the ball is compromised or if he is out of the lineup altogether.
Carolina Hurricanes over New York Islanders (-169)
The Carolina Hurricanes won game one 2-1, earning their fourth straight victory over the New York Islanders. The Hurricanes are now 4-1 against the Islanders in 2022-23, with New York’s winning their only contest on October 28.
The favorite is 4-0 in the previous four meetings, while the Islanders are 2-14 in the last 16 head-to-head matchups and 2-7 in the previous nine games in Carolina.
While it’ll likely be another close game tonight, we expect the Hurricanes to win and head to New York with a 2-0 series lead.
Los Angeles Kings versus Edmonton Oilers Over 6.5 (-120)
The total goals line for game one was set at 7.0, which is difficult to hit, even for the mighty McDavid’s: the NHL’s Kings of the Over. With a 4-3 score in overtime, game one between the McDavid’s and the Los Angeles Kings ended in a push.
However, with a total goals line of 6.5, the over is back in play. However, the Kings and Oilers have combined for a 2-3 over/under record in head-to-head meetings.
Connor McDavid didn’t have a good night in game one and was held scoreless. We expect McDavid to go off tonight, the Oilers to win, and this game to hit the over.
