The NHL Playoffs continue on Thursday, May 20th, 2021 with four Round 1 games. Let's take a look at the odds and the free betting picks for these games in the National Hockey League. 

Florida Panthers +125 Tampa Bay Lightning -145 Total: 5.5

I am not ready to give up on these Panthers as they did defeat the Lightning five games to three in the season series. The Cats have hung around with the defending Stanley Cup Champs and I think Florida takes the first of two games in Tampa in game three of this series.

Pick: Florida Panthers +125

Pittsburgh Penguins -105 New York Islanders -115 Total: 5

The Islanders have been the better team in this series and I think home ice will aid their efforts in game three. The Islanders were one of the best teams in the league on home ice and I think the 50% capacity at Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum is enough for the Isles to grab a game three victory.

Pick: New York Islanders -105

Montreal Canadiens +175 Toronto Maple Leafs -210 Total: 5.5

This should be a fantastic series in the North division and I look for both defenses/goaltenders to show up in a big way. When you think of the Maple Leafs you think about their terrific offense but do not sleep on their ability to control the zone. I like the under in this first game. 

Pick: Under 5.5

Vegas Golden Knights -110 Minnesota Wild -110 Total: 5.5

The Wild were fantastic on home ice this season and they were able to steal a game on the road in the first two games of this series. The Golden Knights' offense has not looked sharp enough for me to pass up the Wild as the home team here. Minnesota's defense should carry the Wild to a 2-1 series lead after Thursday's contest. 

Pick: Minnesota Wild -110
