Saturday was the first time the favorites won every game, according to ESPN Stats and Information’s database, which goes back to the 2017-18 season. Favorites went 11-0 straight up on Nov. 18, 2021, the next-best-mark in a single day.

The New York Rangers (-400) blanked the Detroit Red Wings 4-0, and the Nashville Predators (-300) nipped the Chicago Blackhawks 4-3. The average odds on the favorites Saturday was -237.

There were also a couple of close calls involving favorites. The Seattle Kraken (-115) beat the New Jersey Devils 4-3 in a shootout, and the Toronto Maple Leafs (-270) needed overtime to beat the Ottawa Senators 5-4.

Depending on the odds, a $100 14-team parlay featuring all the favorites would’ve paid around $33,000.
