Prediction

Golden Knights 4, Rangers 2.

Moneyline (ML)

The GOLDEN KNIGHTS ( -223), 7-5-3 at home, are the rested team going up against a Rangers squad on the first game of a four-game road trip. New York is a respectable 6-5-1 on the road. However, Vegas has won four straight matchups against the Rangers. Finally, New York allows 3.42 goals per game on the road this year. Back Vegas and roll the bones!

A $10 bet with Vegas results in a $4.48 profit with an outright win for the Golden Knights. Or every $2.23 wagered on a Knights win would profit $1 if they prevail.

Puck Line/Against the Spread (ATS)

The Rangers are 19-9 ATS, which is tops in the NHL. The Golden Knights are just 12-19 ATS (30th in the league). That gives us some pause here, so it’s best to AVOID.

Over/Under (O/U)

The UNDER6.5 ( -150) is a bit of risk even knowing that Vegas gives up three goals a game at home. There are some concerns about rust with both goaltenders. Lundqvist is just getting over the flu, while Fleury dealt with the loss of his father recently. The other slight concern is that New York allows 35.9 shots per game and is just 76.9% (23rd) on the penalty kill. On the other hand, both teams combine for 6.04 goals per game. Lean slightly to the UNDER.

Placing a $10 bet here will give a bettor a $6.67 profit with a total of six or fewer goals scored.
