Free NHL Picks, Best Bets, and Parlays For 3/17/22

With only 4 games on the schedule last night, we took advantage, and had a perfect night of betting the NHL. We have bounced back nicely after a couple of lean weeks.

We continued our hot streak with our Best Bets and cashed in for the 10th day in a row as the Wild knocked off the Bruins 4-2. That raised our Best Bet of the Day record to 19-12 since the All-Star Break.

We also hit the upset special for the 3rd night in a row and turned a nice profit thanks to the Blue Jackets win over Ottawa.

We went 4-0 betting the MoneyLine and our overall record is 114-74 since the All-Star break.

And finally, we cashed our Parlay turning a $15 Bet into a Payout of $65.

There are 10 games on the schedule for this beautiful Thursday so the challenges will be many. It’s time to try and keep it rolling.

*PAPA DUDES BEST BET OF THE DAY* Florida at Las Vegas: The Panthers are one of the best teams in the league and Vegas is really struggling. This has upset potential but it is worth betting the MoneyLine on a Florida team that if they are focused should skate to another win. PAPA DUDES BEST BET: Bet the MoneyLine on Florida -130

*PAPA DUDES BEST BET ON AN UPSET* Nashville at Philadelphia: The Predators are coming off 3 games against St.Louis, Minnesota, and Pittsburgh, winning the last two after losing to the Blues. They might come into Philly a little tired and mentally unprepared. If the Flyers still care, they might just jump on them and get a home win. I’m picking Nashville on the MoneyLine, but throwing a few dollars on a Philadelphia upset. PAPA DUDES PICK: Bet the MoneyLine on Philadelphia +145

Carolina at Toronto: This is a good game to bet on because it is a toss-up and you can get value either way you go. I think the Hurricanes are better and I’m leaning towards them. PAPA DUDES PICK: Bet the MoneyLine on Carolina -110

Pittsburgh at St.Louis: This might be the game of the night. The Penguins come into St.Louis after absorbing a 5-1 thrashing in Nashville on Tuesday. This is worrisome to me, as a Blues fan, because the Pens seldom throw out 2 clunkers in a row. On the other hand St.Louis plays their best against good teams. Through the years Pittsburgh has had the Blues number. PAPA DUDES PICK: Bet the Moneyline on Pittsburgh -115


New York Rangers over New York Islanders

Dallas over Montreal

Edmonton over Buffalo

Los Angeles over San Jose

Vancouver over Detroit

Washington at Columbus


We are going with two slight underdogs and a solid favorite.

Leg 1: Pittsburgh at St.Louis: Bet the MoneyLine on St.Louis -105

Leg 2: Florida at Vegas: Bet the MoneyLine Vegas +130

Leg 3: Detroit at Vancouver: Bet the MoneyLine on Vancouver -200

Bet $15 for a Payout of $86.04
