Bet Surging Golden Knights To Take Care of Canucks

The Pacific Division-leading Vancouver Canucks visit the Vegas Golden Knights on Tuesday night in a game that could be an NHL playoff preview.

The Canucks have a five-point lead on Edmonton in the Pacific after edging Anaheim 3-2 on Sunday night for their fourth win in six games. Vancouver is without Vezina Trophy candidate Thatcher Demko in net for at least another week.

Vegas has found its game of late, despite an injury to its No. 1 goalie Adin Hill, with a 5-0-1 run to propel into third place in the Pacific. Vegas has allowed one goal four times during its six-game point streak.

Each team has won on the road in the season series, which includes a matchup at Vancouver on April 6. The Canucks won 3-1 at Vegas on March 7 as Demko turned aside 27 shots.

Vegas, which is three points up on Los Angeles for third in the division, is +600 in the NHL conference odds to win the West and Vancouver +700.

Canucks vs Golden Knights Over/Under Pick: Over 5½

While both teams have a great record with the under lately, anytime you have a low number like this and No. 2 goalies in net, you want to top it.



Canucks vs Golden Knights Pick ATS: Golden Knights -1½ (+190)

Logan Thompson was 5-1-0 with a .932 save percentage in March as Hill missed a portion of the month with an undisclosed injury. He should hold down the Canucks just enough.



Canucks vs Golden Knights ML Pick: Golden Knights (-130)

Vegas appears to be making its push to prepare for any NHL playoff matchups, led by forwards Jonathan Marchessault (career-high 40 goals) and a stifling defense. Forward Anthony Mantha (six points, +5 in 12 games) and defenseman Noah Hanifin (five assists, +6 in 12 games) have made impacts for Vegas since being acquired.

Vancouver’s key acquisition Elias Lindholm (nine points, 22 games) is questionable with an injury.
