The Buffalo Sabres have been a parlay blog betting favorite but haven’t always shown up when we need them. We looked to our friends from Buffalo to help us regain our parlay blog betting championship and end our week with a third same-game parlay win.
Last night in San Jose, the Buffalo Sabres won on the moneyline and covered the spread, but the Sabres and Sharks did not hit the over of 7 total goals, combining for six. That means our weekly parlay drops to 2-5, while we posted a pretty good 13-8 record on individual picks.
We might have won the fight overall, but we got robbed on the judges’ scorecard! Nevertheless, we’re returning to the ring tonight and taking our championship back.
We start our week with a multi-game parlay, with a familiar name and team as our starting leg but taking a very different approach with our other picks.
Edmonton Oilers vs Colorado Avalanche Over 6.5 (-141)
Hello, McDavids of Edmonton. Welcome back to the parlay betting blog! On our last multi-game parlay, we mentioned that Connor McDavid and the Edmonton Oilers are the Kings of the over in the NHL this season.
The McDavid’s are still the highest-scoring team in the NHL with the best powerplay in the league. After their 5-4 shootout loss to the New York Rangers hit the over, Edmonton has a 7-3 over/under record in the last ten games and a 36-16-4 over/under record overall.
We also mentioned that we have been big proponents of the Colorado Avalanche and have stated the rumors of their demise have been greatly exaggerated. However, the Avs don’t hit the over often, going 3-6-1 over/under in the last ten games and having a 19-33-2 over/under record this season.
The over is 4-0-1 in the Oilers’ previous five games against a team with a winning record and 5-1-1- in the Avalanche’s last seven games against the Pacific.
We expect and 4-3 or 5-4 final score, so we’re taking the McDavids vs Avs to hit the over.
Winnipeg Jets vs New Jersey Devils Under 6.5 (-120)
We never feature two total goals/points lines in our parlays, but leg two of Sunday’s parlay is focused on the excellent Jets vs Devils matchup and the total goals line.
The Winnipeg Jets have hit the under in three straight games, have a 1-8-1 over/under record in the last ten games, and a 15-36-4 over/under record this season. The under is 4-1 in Winnipeg’s last five games against the Metropolitan Division.
Pair these over/under records with having the third-ranked defense, giving up 2.6 goals per game, solidified by Connor Hellebuyck’s excellent season, and the fourth-ranked penalty kill, and you have an easy pick on the under.
The New Jersey Devils have hit the under in three of the last five games, have a 3-6-1 over/under record in the last ten, and a 25-27-3 over/under on the season. The Devils might be one of the better offensive teams in the NHL – sixth in scoring – but even if they win, they’re unlikely to score more than four against the Jets.
The Devils are among the best defensive teams as well, meaning Winnipeg is likely to struggle to score as well.
We’re taking the under in a close game between two of the best teams in the NHL.
Arizona Coyotes over Columbus Blue Jackets (-125)
We’re going way off the board here, but follow us here, as we’ve left some of our regularly featured parlay blog favorites to a game featuring two of the worst teams in the NHL.
But we love the Arizona Coytoes and the futility the franchise is best known for.
The Arizona Coyotes and Columbus Blue Jackets have very similar over/under and straight-up records. The Yotes have a 19-37 straight-up record, while CBJ are 18-38 straight-up.
Arizona is 4-1 in its last five home games, but the Blue Jackets are 6-0 in the last six games in Arizona, while the road team is 7-1 in the last eight games.
Columbus has won two straight, upsetting the Winnipeg Jets and Dallas Stars, have won three of the last five but are 4-6 overall in the last ten. Arizona has lost three of the last five games but are 5-5 in the last ten.
Arizona won the only matchup this season, defeating CBJ 6-3 in Columbus on October 25. With players on both sides being healthy scratched with potential trades on the horizon and CBJ’s Johnny “Cheese Pizza” Gaudreau being listed as questionable on the injury report, we’ll take Clayton Keller and the Yotes to get the win on home ice.
