Avalanche vs Lightning Same Game Parlay for Game 6 | Best Stanley Cup Final 2022 Parlay Bets

Posted: Jun 25, 2022Last updated: Jun 25, 2022

The hockey season could end Sunday, which means we still have one more chance to hit a same-game parlay.

The Colorado Avalanche can win the Stanley Cup for the third time overall, and the second time in Florida with a victory over the two-time defending champion Tampa Bay Lightning on Sunday at Amalie Arena.

Here are a couple of parlays we like for Sunday’s game.

All Stanley Cup Playoff odds are provided by BetMGM Sportsbook and are current as of Saturday, June 25, at 11 a.m. ET.

Avalanche vs Lightning Game 6 Best Parlay

Best Same-Game Parlay (+185)

  • Avalanche Moneyline
  • Avalanche Score Last
  • Over 4.5 Goals

The odds for this parlay aren’t super-lucrative, but we like this one a lot.

Given the likelihood of a 3-2 game, each of the past two have ended by that score, the over seems solid. If the Avalanche win they’re likely to be the team to score last, either by empty-netter, overtime-winner, or a game-winner late in regulation.

If you’re feeling frisky, take Colorado to cover -1.5, but we’re not going that far out on the limb given the fact three of the previous five games have been one-goal games and two were decided in OT.

Avalanche vs Lightning Game 6 Longshot Parlay

Longshot Same-Game Parlay (+825)

  • Avalanche Moneyline
  • Over 4.5 Goals
  • Overtime played: Yes

Wager: 0.5 Units

Avalanche vs Lightning Longshot Parlay

If you’re anxious about the game reaching the five-goal threshold, simply picking Colorado to win the Cup in overtime in Game 6 comes with +725 odds. Given the fact that Games 1 and 4 were decided in extra time, and also that there were at least five goals in each overtime game, we’ll stick with the over being the option here.

The last team to clinch the Cup with an OT winner was the 2014 Los Angeles Kings, who famously defeated the New York Rangers on Alec Martinez‘s double-OT goal in Game 5 of that Cup final. Before that, it was Patrick Kane of the Chicago Blackhawks in 2010.

We’re due to add a name to the list of overtime Cup-clinching heroes.


PREVIOUSLY: Avalanche vs Lightning Game 5 Parlays

The hockey season could end Friday, which means we have one more chance to get this same-game parlay thing right.

The Colorado Avalanche can claim the Stanley Cup for the first time since 2001 with a victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup final at Ball Arena on Friday.

Here’s a look at a couple of same-game parlays we like for this contest.

All Stanley Cup Playoff odds are provided by BetMGM Sportsbook and are current as of Thursday, June 23, at 11 a.m. ET.

Avalanche vs Lightning Game 5 Best Parlay

Best Same-Game Parlay (+300)

  • Avalanche Moneyline
  • Avalanche Score Last
  • Nathan MacKinnon Anytime Goalscorer

Wager: 1 Unit

Nathan MacKinnon scored in Game 4 and has been a force in potential clinching games this season. He has five goals and one assist in four potential clinchers and has tried to put the Avalanche on his back during big games all postseason.

We added the Colorado scoring last prop to this parlay since that seems more safe than betting on the Avalanche to score first — given the likelihood of an empty-net goal. Strange things can happen, and even though we see Colorado building a lead and hanging on, that doesn’t mean that’s how the game will play out.

We are especially excited about this parlay given the larger payout if it is successful, which we think it will be.

Avalanche vs Lightning Game 5 Longshot Parlay

Longshot Same-Game Parlay (+525)

  • Avalanche -1.5
  • Cale Makar Anytime Goalscorer

Wager: 0.5 Units

We thought about adding the Avalanche to score last again, since for Colorado to cover -1.5, it’ll likely need an empty-net goal, but that only boosted the odds to (+550).

If you are confident in that hitting, take it since every little bit counts. But given our parlay struggles, we’ll settle for a two-leg, long-odds parlay for Game 5.

As stated in our Avalanche vs Lightning Game 5 props, we think Cale Makar will cap his Conn Smythe candidacy with a goal in the Cup-clinching Game 5. We also strongly advocate for Colorado to cover the puck line.

Five of the past seven Cup-clinching games have come by more than one goal.


PREVIOUSLY: Avalanche vs Lightning Game 4 Parlays

We’ve been rolling with our Stanley Cup prop bets but not so much in the parlay department.

That all ends today though as we have a clear head and firm outlook on Game 4 of the Stanley Cup final between the Colorado Avalanche and Tampa Bay Lightning.

Either the Lightning will even the best-of-seven series at two or the Avalanche will take a commanding 3-1 advantage going home for Game 5.

Here are a couple of parlays we like for Wednesday night.

All Stanley Cup Playoff odds are provided by BetMGM Sportsbook and are current as of Tuesday, June 21, at 11 a.m. ET.

Avalanche vs Lightning Game 4 Best Parlay

Best Same-Game Parlay (+250)

  • Avalanche +1.5
  • Over 6.5 Goals
  • Over 1.5 First-Period Goals

Wager: 1 Unit

Avalanche vs Lightning Game 4 Parlay

If you read our Avalanche vs Lightning Game 4 predictions, you know we think this contest will be really close and a little high-scoring.

The Over 6.5 is a consequence of betting Colorado against the spread, since a +1.5 bet cannot win with an even number of goals.

We are predicting the Lightning to win in overtime. If the game gets to overtime, with at least six goals in regulation, this parlay will hit no matter the outcome.

There have been three goals scored in the first period of each of the first three games, which makes Over 1.5 in the opening frame a lock.

Avalanche vs Lightning Game 4 Longshot Parlay

Longshot Same-Game Parlay (+700)

Wager: 0.5 Units

  • Lightning Moneyline
  • Overtime: Yes

As stated above we think this game will go to OT. If you believe the Avalanche will be the victorious side, bet them on the moneyline at the same odds.

We just tend to think Tampa Bay will find a way to send the series back to Denver even.


PREVIOUSLY: Avalanche vs Lightning Game 3 Parlays

Through two games, the Stanley Cup final has been all Colorado Avalanche.

But the series will shift to Amalie Arena for Game 3 where the two-time defending Stanley Cup champion Tampa Bay Lightning will try to get off the mat again in these playoffs. The Lightning have rallied from down 2-1 and 2-0 to win series earlier in these playoffs and will have to do so again to hoist the Cup for a third straight year.

Here’s a look at a couple of same-game parlays we like for Game 3.

All Stanley Cup Playoff odds are provided by BetMGM Sportsbook and are current as of Sunday, June 19, at 4 p.m. ET.

Avalanche vs Lightning Game 3 Best Parlay

Best Same-Game Parlay (+210)

  • Lightning Moneyline
  • Lightning To Score First
  • Under 7.5 Goals

Wager: 1 Unit

The Lightning have scored first in five of their past six wins and in five of their seven home postseason games thus far.

Their most recent home game where they allowed the first goal was Game 3 of the Eastern Conference final, where Tampa Bay fell behind 2-0 in the second period but rallied to win.

The Lightning aren’t likely to win if they allow the first goal in Game 3. Colorado is 8-1 when scoring first in these playoffs — although it is also 6-1 when allowing the first goal in the postseason.

Tampa Bay isn’t likely to win a shootout either, which is why we conservatively picked 7.5 as the Under. That number would have hit as the Under in each of the first two games in this series.

Avalanche vs Lightning Game 3 Longshot Parlay

Longshot Same-Game Parlay (+575)

Wager: 0.5 Units

  • Lightning -1.5
  • Under 6.5 Goals
  • Under 1.5 First-Period Goals

In our Avalanche vs Lightning Predictions, we picked Game 3 to end 4-2 in favor of the Lightning, and in that scenario, this parlay would hit as long as there were fewer than two first-period goals.

There haven’t been less than three goals scored in the first 20 minutes in Games 1 or 2, but one would think the Lightning should be able to better control the tempo on home ice and thus keep the scoring down in Game 3.

There haven’t been more than six goals scored in any of Tampa Bay’s past five home playoff games, and the Lightning have won each of those — and covered the puck line three times in that span.

It’s definitely not a sure bet, especially given the prospect of needing a team to cover the spread and also have a barely teased Under hit, but if you want to throw a dart at a long-odds parlay, this one has a chance to hit.


PREVIOUSLY: Avalanche vs Lightning Game 2 Parlays

Game 1 of the Stanley Cup final was wildly entertaining.

It had a bit of everything: goals, an insane amount of skill, and even overtime.

The Cup final is a perfect venue for same-game parlay betting, especially if you’re a loyal hockey bettor like I am.

Here are a couple of same-game parlays we like for Game 2.

All Stanley Cup Playoff odds are provided by BetMGM Sportsbook and are current as of Thursday, June 16, at 11 a.m. ET.

Avalanche vs Lightning Game 2 Best Parlay

Best Same-Game Parlay (+310)

  • Lightning Moneyline
  • Under 2.5 First-Period Goals
  • Under 6.5 Goals

Wager: 1 Unit

Avalanche vs Lightning Game 2 Parlay

If you’re anxious about another 4-3 game, feel free to tease the Under to 7.5 with this parlay at (+230) odds.

Still, the Lightning aren’t likely to win a shootout, and a four-goal first period isn’t likely to happen again — particularly given the goals Tampa Bay goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed in the first 20 minutes of Game 1.

This parlay takes into consideration the prospect of Tampa Bay hitting an empty net in a 3-2 game. But if you’re feeling especially brave, take this parlay with the Under at 5.5 at (+360).

Avalanche vs Lightning Game 2 Longshot Parlay

Longshot Same-Game Parlay (+750)

  • Lightning Moneyline
  • Under 6.5 Goals
  • Steven Stamkos Anytime Goalscorer

Wager: 0.5 Units

Avalanche vs Lightning Game 2 Longshot Parlay

The prospect of having an Under and an anytime goal scorer can be daunting, so we wouldn’t blame anyone for teasing up the Under to 7.5 in this parlay — the odds for that are (+525) at BetMGM.

But we believe strongly in this one and it again accounts for the possibility of Tampa Bay hitting an empty net to make the game 4-2. We expect Tampa Bay to win Game 2, and it’ll need to limit the goals to do so.


PREVIOUSLY: Avalanche vs Lightning Game 1 Parlays

The Stanley Cup final is tailor-made for same-game parlay betting.

With one game every other night from here on out, the NHL season is coming to a wrap. Plus, given the great potential of the Colorado Avalanche vs Tampa Bay Lightning series, a same-game parlay is an excellent and fun wager to make, especially for Game 1, Wednesday in Denver.

Here’s a look at two parlays we like.

All Stanley Cup Playoff odds are provided by BetMGM Sportsbook and are current as of Monday, June 13, at 12 p.m. ET.

Avalanche vs Lightning Game 1 Best Parlay

Best Same-Game Parlay (+320)

  • Avalanche Moneyline
  • Under 1.5 First-Period Goals
  • Under 6.5 Goals

Wager: 1 Unit

There should be a feeling-out period for Game 1 of the Stanley Cup final, and this parlay still accounts for the possibility of a first-period goal.

There could be seven or more goals in Game 1 — there were 14 in Game 1 of Colorado’s series against the Edmonton Oilers and eight in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference final between Tampa Bay and the New York Rangers — but Game 1s of the Cup final tend to be low-scoring.

Avalanche vs Lightning Game 1 Longshot Parlay

Longshot Same-Game Parlay (+500)

  • Avalanche -1.5 Puck Line
  • Avalanche to Score First
  • Under 5.5 Goals

Wager: 0.5 Units

There’s a significant risk to taking a team to cover the spread while also betting the Under. Still, given the likelihood of not many goals and the strong possibility that the Avalanche feeds on the home-ice advantage, this feels like a plausible option.

If you believe the Lightning will win and score the first goal, the odds for this parlay with those options is (+475).

As reflected in this parlay, we like Colorado to win a low-scoring game by more than a goal.
