NHL Saturday betting lines, picks & best parlays 12th March 2022

There are 10 National Hockey League (NHL) games scheduled for Saturday in the Americas, starting at 12:30 p.m. Eastern Standard Time (U.S.). Here’s where you should place your bets at the best US betting sites on the Saturday NHL betting games.

St. Louis Blues @ Nashville Predators NHL Betting

While the moneyline isn’t particularly attractive in Saturday’s earliest game, the over/under at 5.5 total goals is quite attractive, even if the over only pays -125. The Predators have a decision to make in goal since they play Minnesota the following day.

The Wild have a slightly more potent offense than St. Louis, which is exacerbated by the Wild playing at home. Expect David Rittich to start in this one, and bet that more than 5.5 total goals will be scored if he does. He’s logged an.890 save percentage in very limited action this season. Both of the two previous games played between these two also resulted in more than six total goals being scored.

Betting on Nashville to win by at least two is attractive at +180 odds, and it’s worth considering since we like the over in this one. Also, the Predators are the favorite playing at home against a division rival ahead of them in the standings in a game they would like to win before going on the road to play another division rival, also ahead of them in the standings, the very next day.

Philadelphia Flyers @ Carolina Hurricanes NHL Betting

Carolina and Philadelphia both play on Sunday, so expect backup goalie Antti Raanta to start for the Hurricanes and Martin Jones to go for Philly. Raanta already has one win over Philadelphia this season, allowing three goals in that game, and Jones has taken a loss, allowing four goals. The goaltending advantage for Carolina improves considerably if both backup goalies play in this one, as does the likelihood that six or more goals are scored.

Take Carolina on the moneyline, and consider betting the over, which pays -125. Just one of the three games these two teams have played resulted in fewer than six goals being scored. Also, if you parlay a bet on the over in this game and the Blues/Predators game, the odds improve to +224. It might not be a bad idea to parlay Carolina to win with

Arizona Coyotes @ Boston Bruins NHL Betting

The biggest favorite of the day is Boston to win at home over Arizona. The Coyotes are on an impressive four-game winning streak, scoring 22 goals in their last three games. That’s vastly better than their 2.54 goal-per-game average this season. Expect them to come back to Earth on Saturday.

The Bruins average just 2.69 goals allowed per game, and in 27 games, Boston goaltender Jeremy Swayman has a miniscule 2.06 goals against average. Boston’s other goaltender, Linus Ullmark, has also been stingy this season and already has a win over Arizona, allowing just one goal in that game. Take Boston on the moneyline, and to complete the day’s “favorites parlay,” add.

Detroit Red Wings @ Calgary Flames NHL Betting

Calgary hosts the Red Wings, who’ve lost four straight. Calgary has been a rock at home (17-5-5), and Detroit has been anything but a rolling stone on the road (8-15-3). Detroit also has five players listed on the injury report.

Although Calgary’s points leader Johnny Gaudreau is also listed as day-to-day, he has been since March 9 and managed to log three points in a win over Tampa Bay on March 10.

Take Calgary on the moneyline. Parlaying Calgary with Boston and Carolina to win outright potentially pays +113 at NHL betting sites.

There are your best bets for the 10 NHL games scheduled for this Saturday starting at 12:30 p.m. Eastern Standard Time (U.S.). Get your bets in before pucks drop, and please remember to bet responsibly.
