$FML's Friday NHL Parlay - 11/25
Leg 1: Kirby Dach (MTL) 1+ Point (-135) vs. CHI
The #3 overall pick in the 2019 draft is sizzling with 9 points in his last 12 games. This corresponds with getting bumped up to Montreal’s first line with more talented teammates (Cole Caufield and Nick Suzuki). That context aside — I’m willing to bet Dach’s had this game circled on his calendar for a while. He’ll be facing Chicago, the team that drafted him, for the first time since being traded. Look for Kirby to make ’em pay by finding the scoresheet at least once via goal or assist.
Leg 2: Troy Terry (ANA) 1+ Point (-220) vs. OTT
The Ottawa Senators have dropped 11 of their last 13 games and been outscored 9-2 in aggregate on their current road trip. The Ducks are a weaker and winnable matchup, but they’re a strong home team. They’re 1-3 in their last 4 overall but 2-0 in their last 2 at home including a recent victory over the New York Rangers. While I don’t trust Anaheim enough on the Moneyline, I like superstar Troy Terry’s chances to find the scoresheet via goal or assist. He’s recorded at least 1 point in 33 of 44 (75%) home games and 2 of 2 vs. Ottawa since last season, and today’s game projects to be high scoring (game total is o/u 6.5).
Leg 3: Noah Dobson (NYI) 3+ Shots (-135) vs. CBJ
Fading Columbus again — this time in the player prop market. They’re allowing tons of shots and a high proportion to defensemen. Enter Noah Dobson, an Islanders blue liner who’s attempted 5+ shots in 10 straight games and landed 3+ on target in 8 of those 10, and this feels like a solid bet worth trusting in our parlay. Dobson averaged 2.8 shots on net per game in this matchup last year, and now Columbus is shorthanded.
