NHL Playoff Picks for May 2nd, 2023

Welcome to BNB Bet Club and another exciting day of NHL hockey playoff action. In this article, our betting specialists will be providing our best picks and parlay wagers for the NHL hockey games on May 2nd, 2023. Let’s get started!

Recap of Last Night’s NHL Playoff Games

Last night was a sweep for the road teams in the NHL playoffs. The home-ice advantage did not count for much as both road teams won the first games of their series. The Panthers won 4-2 in Toronto against the Maple Leafs in their Game 1, while the Kraken won 5-4 in overtime against the Stars after winning a wild first period 4-2. Joe Pavelski scored all 4 goals in the game for Dallas.

Preview of Tonight’s NHL Playoff Games

Tonight, we have two more series starting in the NHL playoffs. First up is the Devils vs Hurricanes at 7:00 pm ET on ESPN, followed by Oilers vs Golden Knights at 9:30 pm ET on ESPN. Our first best bet pick of the day and same game parlay focuses on the first game of the night between the New Jersey Devils and the Carolina Hurricanes.

NHL Devils vs Hurricanes Same Game Parlay: NJ at +550

#1 NHL Parlay Pick: Totals Under 5.5 goals (-135)

This is our best bet of the day, and will anchor this parlay. We are confident in taking the under 5.5 goals (-135). The Devils completely shut down the Rangers after the first two games of their opening series, limiting them to just 7 goals in the next 5 games (1.4 goals per game). New Jersey’s defensive play is at a high level, and even if they lose this game, they should be able to limit Carolina’s scoring.

The Hurricanes have a style of play that they have succeeded with for years, and that is physicality and grit, which results in low-scoring games. That was highlighted when they held the Islanders to 15 goals in 6 games (2.5 goals per game), and they will look to continue that in round two. We believe this will be a tightly played series with a slim margin of error, and the under is a good play.

#2 NHL Parlay Pick: Devils -1.5 (+260)

In addition to the under, we are also taking New Jersey to win at +550 odds. The Devils have looked fantastic since dropping their first 2 games of the playoffs in ugly fashion. Since Game 2, they are 4-1, outscoring the Rangers 15-5. Their speed completely overwhelmed a deep, veteran team, and they are arguably the fastest team remaining in the playoffs.

NHL Parlay Pick Conclusion

Our NHL parlay pick for tonight’s games is the Unders and Devils to win by 2 or more goals (-1.5) at +260 odds. With all due respect to the Islanders, the Hurricanes may have had the least challenging road to the second round. It took an average of only 2.67 goals per game for the Hurricanes to win that series. Since the Devils have made their adjustments, it looks like the Hurricanes will need much more production than they showed against the Islanders.
