Vegas Golden Knights at Vancouver Canucks Betting Prediction
The offense has been extremely close as of late as the Golden Knights are scoring 2.75 goals in their previous four games while the Canucks are averaging 2.5 goals in their last four games. The biggest issue is the health of the Golden Knights’ goaltenders as they are on a third-string goalie, and that will be tough to keep winning.
Vegas is a brutal 27-41 against the spread this season, while Vancouver is 39-29 against the spread. Go with the Vancouver Canucks to win at home and cover the puck line thus far.
