Free NHL Picks, Best Bets, and Parlays for 4/16/22

There were only 2 games on the schedule last night and they were pretty predictable. Tonight will be a very different story I’m sure.

We cashed both of our Best Bets as the Islanders took care of business and beat the lowly Canadiens. We picked Florida to score more than 4.5 goals and they buried 6 goals into the net.Flyers. That improved our Best Bet of the Day record to 36-25 since the All-Star Break.

We went 2-0 betting the MoneyLine to improve our overall record to 257-145 since the All-Star break.

Finally, we hit the parlay and turned a $10 Bet into a Payout of $64.78.

With 14 games on the schedule, there will be a bunch of challenges tonight. Let’s dive in and see what we can find to bet for this Saturday as we play out the final weeks of the regular season.

*PAPA DUDES BEST BET* Carolina at Colorado: This is an intraconference matchup between two of the best teams in the NHL. The Hurricanes come into this one playing .500 hockey over the last 20 games. They have a 2-point lead in the Metro division over the Rangers and they are trying to hold them off. Meanwhile, Colorado is the best team in the league and is almost impossible to beat at home. If they are focused and motivated, I think they handle the Hurricanes. PAPA DUDES BEST BET: Bet the MoneyLine on Colorado -135

*PAPA DUDES UPSET SPECIAL* Pittsburgh at Boston: The Penguins showed signs of coming out of their recent slump with a win over the Islanders in their last outing. They are only 4-8 in their last 12 games, but everyone knows they are better than that. On the other hand, Boston has lost three straight, and four of their last 5, and they are in the first wild-card spot in the Eastern conference. Both teams need a win in this one. The Bruins are the favorites and it is worth a shot to throw some money on the Pens. PAPA DUDES UPSET PICK: Bet the MoneyLine on Pittsburgh +110

*BEST GAME OF THE NIGHT* Vegas at Edmonton: This is a critical game in the Pacific division playoff race. The Oilers are in 2nd place with 92 points and are in solid position for the upcoming playoffs. Vegas is fighting for the final playoff spot and trail the Kings by 1 point and the Stars by 2. They need every win they can get. Edmonton has been one of the best teams in the West since the All-Star Break and will be looking to continue their good play.. PAPA DUDES PICK: Bet the MoneyLine on Edmonton -125


St.Louis over Minnesota

New York Rangers over Detroit

Nashville over Chicago

Buffalo over Philadelphia

Washington over Montreal

Toronto over Ottawa

Tampa Bay over Winnipeg
