The 2020 NHL Playoffs continue with some of the best teams going head-to-head today.

We've crunched the numbers on today's games and provided you with likely probabilities below and, if the qualifying rounds were anything to go by, we're set for an exciting playoffs series.

Here are our best picks from each matchup, so why not get up to 40% more out of your parlays with BetMGM?

Hurricanes @ Bruins

BEST: Hurricanes +1.5 (-220*) has a 70% probability

Shorter odds here with the Hurricanes at the puck line. Our predictive analytics model doesn’t mind them head to head but the puck line is the better and safer pick.

Suggested Money Line and Over/Under plays HERE

Islanders @ Capitals

BEST: Total goals: Over 5.5 (+120*) has a 52% probability

Our model sees great value in this game going over 5.5 and it's no surprise considering two of the Islanders' last three games have had at least six goals.

Coyotes @ Avalanche

BEST: Total goals: Over 5.5 (+100*) has a 52% probability

Once again the predictions are telling us to take the over, so we're expecting this one to have at least six goals. Both of these teams' last games had seven goals and our data says that trend will continue.

Suggested Puck Line and Money Line plays HERE

Canadiens @ Flyers

BEST: Total goals: Over 5.5 (+115*) has a 52% probability

It seems as though our model is expecting a Wednesday goal-fest as it is once again taking the over. It's calculated that there's a 53 percent chance of there being at least six goals.

Suggested Puck Line and Money Line plays HERE

Canucks @ Blues

BEST: Puck line: Canucks +1.5 (-200*) has a 67% probability

The sportsbooks are clearly expecting a tight one, as the Canucks are -200 at the puck line despite being dogs to win the game! At the time of publishing our predictor has them at a 67 percent chance of covering, so that's the play.

Suggested Over/Under and Money Line plays HERE
