Free NHL Picks, Best Bets, and Parlays for 4/26/22

We are back after a night off with only 1 game on the schedule last night and, quite frankly, wasn’t worth messing with. But we have 13 games for tonight and this will be Survival Tuesday, with a bunch of games that could clear up some of the remaining playoff positions.

We start our final Best Bets for the final 4 days of the regular season with a Best Bet of the Day record of 45-26 since the All-Star Break. 16 days

We went 0-1 betting MoneyLine last night as we picked Philadelphia to upset Chicago. Our overall record to 313-168 since the All-Star break.

Let’s see if we can analyze these 13 games and come out on the winning side for tonight.

*PAPA DUDES BEST BET* Vegas at Dallas: It is do or die for the Golden Knights tonight. Dallas is 3 points ahead of them for the final playoff spot and they can clinch that spot with a win. Vegas has lost 5 of their last 8 and have failed to take advantage of Dallas going 4-6 in their last 10 games. The door has been open, but they haven’t forced their way in. The Golden Knights finish the regular season with 3 straight road games and they must win them all. Dallas can seal the deal tonight. I’m going with the home team. PAPA DUDES BEST BET: Bet the MoneyLine on Dallas -110

*PAPA DUDES AND UPSET SPECIAL* Calgary at Nashville: This game means a lot more to Nashville than it does the visiting Flames. Calgary has 1st place in the Pacific division locked up and this might be a preview of a first round matchup. The Predators are a win away from clinching a playoff spot and they are going to bring their best to get that done tonight. My pick is based solely on the fact that Nashville needs this game a lot more than a Calgary team that is trying to stay healthy for the playoffs. PAPA DUDES UPSET PICK: Bet the MoneyLine on Nashville +120

*BEST GAME OF THE NIGHT* Florida at Boston: This is another game where one team needs a win a lot worse than the other. Florida has locked up their playoff position and are trying to stay healthy and motivated in their final 3 regular season games. They are coming off an 8-4 loss to Tampa Bay breaking a long winning streak, so it will be interesting to see how they handle this game. On the other hand, Boston is currently in the 1st wild-card spot, but they could still finish 3rd in the Atlantic, or drop to the 2nd wild-card spot as well. The game means more to Boston, but I can’t pull the trigger on betting against the Panthers. PAPA DUDES PICK: Bet the MoneyLine on Florida -120

Carolina at New York Rangers: The Rangers still have a slim chance to finish 1st in the Metropolitan division. They trail Carolina by 4 points but have a game at hand. They have to win their last three games, starting with the Hurricanes tonight. This will be a high octane game with two really good teams duking it out. I like the Rangers at home. PAPA DUDES PICK: Bet the MoneyLine on the Rangers -120
