FastMoneyLabs is ready to cash on the lunchtime two-game NHL slate with a plus money play.
$FML's +181 Presidents' Day NHL Parlay - 2/20
Leg 1: Senators @ Bruins
Boston’s the NHL’s best home team this season (23-2-3) and it ain’t close, but they’re 0-2 vs. Ottawa. That’s a real head scratcher. Both those matches were played in Canada though, and one went to shootout. Today marks the Senators’ first trip to Boston this year and looking back in time: they dropped 6 of their last 7 visits.
This contest features an early start time, and it’s a back-to-back situation for the visitors. It’s extremely difficult to beat an elite team like Boston 3x in a row — especially when playing B2B. Ottawa’s goaltending situation is shaky at best right now, and Kevin Mandolese is expected to start between the pipes. Never heard of him? Exactly. I’ll take the favorites to win in 60-minutes here.
Leg 2: Ducks @ Panthers
The Panthers are set to feast on roast Duck today, and current market prices reflect it. They’re -130 to score 5+ goals in the team total market at DraftKings, for example. That’s mind-boggling and probably justified. The lopsided matchup sent me hunting for a scoring prop, and I decided to spear Tkachuk to record 2+ points (via any combo of goals and assists).
This is cashing at a 63% clip in Panthers home games this season, where Tkachuk’s averaging 2.2 per game in his last 5. He finished under in 2 straight contests entering today, but they were both road games. Now back home, I’m buying the dip.
I got +181 odds for the 2-leg parlay at FanDuel Sportsbook and risked a full unit to win 1.81U. I love this ticket, but parlaying bets is a high-risk / high-reward strategy. Please remember to bet responsibly on these.
