NHL Thursday betting picks & top parlay picks – March 24, 2022

Best bookmakers for NHL betting

There are 10 National Hockey League (NHL) games scheduled on March 24, starting at 7pm EST. If you like betting on heavy favorites, this is a great day to do it. Here’s where you should place your bets on Thursday’s games.

Ottawa Senators (+225) @ Winnipeg Jets (-285)

Winnipeg is the biggest favorite on Thursday despite playing again on Friday. The Jets host the Senators, who are 10-17-3 on the road this season. The Jets are coming off a shutout win over Vegas and have won four of their last five games. Ottawa has lost four of its last five and seven of its last 10 games.

The Senators have struggled scoring all season and especially over their last 10 games, averaging just 2.5 goals per game while allowing 3.5 goals per game. Expect their struggles to continue regardless of who is in net for Winnipeg. Take the Jets on the moneyline and parlay them with…

Winnipeg Jets to win


Philadelphia Flyers (+220) @ St. Louis Blues (-275)

St. Louis gets Philadelphia at home, and the Flyers have lost 13 straight road games. The Flyers also have to play in Colorado on Friday, so Philadelphia could be forced to start Martin Jones in goal. Jones is 7-12-3 with a .902 save percentage and 3.37 goals allowed per game average.

This all bodes well for the Blues, who need every game to hold off the new and improved Minnesota Wild in the Central Division standings. More on that later, but bet on the Blues to get the win and take advantage of -119 odds by parlaying them with Winnipeg. You might as well make that parlay a trifecta by adding…

St. Louis Blues to win


Florida Panthers (-245) @ Montreal Canadiens (+205)

The Panthers ought to be licking their chops at a chance to see the Montreal defense, which has allowed 3.76 goals per game on average this season. Montreal has been terrible this season, but are especially bad at home (9-18-4). Expect Florida to exceed its 4.06 goals scored per game average in this one.

Betting on Florida to win by two or more is attractive at +100 odds with Bovada, but the over/under at 6.5 and -110 is not. Take the Panthers on the moneyline and parlay them with Winnipeg and St. Louis for +159 odds. You might also consider making that trifecta a four-team parlay with…

Florida Panthers -1.5


Vancouver Canucks (+180) @ Minnesota Wild (-225)

Newly acquired goaltender Marc Andre-Fleury is expected to make his debut for Minnesota on Thursday, and the Wild have already exhibited their excitement with the many acquisitions general manager Bill Guerin made at the deadline that have the Wild positioned for a deep playoff run.

Minnesota was a tough place to play before the addition of Fleury, the hard-hitting Nicolas Deslauriers, and reliable defenseman Tyson Jost. The Wild are 20-7-1 at home. Now the State of Hockey is fired up and will be at full throat for the debut of the future Hall of Famer starting in net.

Expect the Wild to ride the home crowd to a critical win over Vancouver, and enjoy odds of +274 for parlaying Minnesota with Winnipeg, St. Louis, and Florida to win on the moneyline.

Minnesota Wild to win


San Jose Sharks (+205) @ Edmonton Oilers (-255)

Edmonton is seeking its sixth straight win at home, where the Oilers are 19-12-0. The Sharks are a .500 team on the road, but are coming off back-to-back wins while the Oilers enter the game on a two-game losing streak. Both those losses came on the road against Western Conference playoff teams, however.

The Sharks have the better defense, both at even strength and on the penalty kill, and that defensive advantage is bigger than the Oilers’ advantage offensively. Take a chance on the Sharks and goalie James Reimer in this one.
