Each of the NHL’s 30 teams will be in action on Saturday with only the Buffalo Sabres, New Jersey Devils, Philadelphia Flyers and St. Louis Blues playing on back-to-back days, That could result in those looking at the best NHL Vegas odds options having some tempting choices to make.
A week ago, 5 of the 10 Saturday games finished over the total with half of those games finishing as one-score finals.
The Boston Bruins, Carolina Hurricanes, Colorado Avalanche, Dallas Stars, Florida Panthers, Los Angeles Kings, Pittsburgh Penguins and Winnipeg Jets are the visiting teams listed by the NHL betting lines as the favorites on a busy slate of games for Nov. 4.
Among the injuries to be aware of, keep in mind that New York Rangers defenseman Adam Fox was placed on long-term injured reserve while NHL scoring leader Jack Hughes left New Jersey’s loss to St. Louis with an injury.
Best NHL Lines To Parlay on Nov. 4
Western Conference Powers To Pour It On
Early November games don’t get much more exciting than a matchup between the defending Stanley Cup champion Vegas Golden Knights and the current Stanley Cup front-running Colorado Avalanche.
The third period has been kind to both powerhouses with Vegas scoring 16 times and having a +8 goal differential and Colorado outscoring its opponents 11-4 in the third period so far this season.
Red Wings Ready To Take Care of Business
The Boston Bruins have seen three of its last four games head to overtime with the Eastern Conference-leading Bruins picking up five out of a possible six points in those games.
The Bruins scored on the power play, on a David Pastrnak penalty shot and into an empty net against Detroit when the teams met in Boston a week ago.
It could be a different deal in the rematch. Keep in mind that Detroit has won six of its last seven games at home against the Bruins and they were listed as the underdog in each of those victories. The last two times Detroit played host to the Bruins, the Red Wings came away with 5-3 wins.
The NHL bet predictions list the Red Wings with +125 odds to win against the Bruins.

Will the High-Scoring Canucks Keep Lighting The Lamp?
Is there a more exciting team to watch than the Vancouver Canucks?
There are 14 NHL players with at least 13 points and four play for the Canucks, including defenseman Quinn Hughes.

Seeing that Saturday’s home date with the Dallas Stars has a total of 6 is certainly going to draw some interest
Dallas takes a three-game winning streak into the matchup with the Canucks.
Six of the last eight times that Dallas and Vancouver have met in the regular season, the game went over the total. Look for it to become seven out of nine.
Dallas does rank in the top 10 in goals-against average, save percentage and penalty killing. However, the Stars are 28th out of 30 teams when it comes to shots allowed per game and if the Stars give up 35 shots to Vancouver, this does not figure to be a 2-1 type of game.
Questions of the Day
Which is the key factor for this week's parlays?
The good news is that four teams are playing on back-to-back days so that could translate into plenty of goals being scored.
Which game this weekend offers the best opportunity to win a big payout on a parlay bet?
The Nashville Predators (+160 against Edmonton), the Chicago Blackhawks (+165 against Florida) and the San Jose Sharks (+205 against Pittsburgh) are underdogs who could pay off as part of a parlay.
