Golden Knights Best Bet to KO Predators

It has been more than a month since the Nashville Predators have won back-to-back games. Looking to accomplish that feat on the road against the reigning Stanley Cup champions will be no easy task. When looking at our best NHL bets today, Vegas is favored for just the sixth time in its last 11 home games.

Vegas has won four of the last five games against Nashville, including a 4-1 home win last month in the first meeting of the season between the teams. Each of the last two games between the teams landed under the total.

The +175 odds for Vegas to cover as 1½-goal home favorites according to our NHL betting lines seems like a pretty good bet. Vegas might have found something in rookie Mason Morelli, who had two points in his NHL debut on Monday.


Looking at NHL futures odds, Vegas is tied for ninth at +1400 in our odds to win the Stanley Cup, with the Predators coming in at +8000 in the championship odds.

Predators vs Golden Knights Over/Under Pick: Over 6 (Ev)

Goals have been harder to come by for the defending Stanley Cup champions as the total has gone under in six of the last eight games for Vegas. There have been four combined goals scored in the last two games.

When looking at the NHL over/under predictions, look for the Golden Knights to get going again after scoring three times in the first period in a win over San Jose.

Predators vs Golden Knights ATS Pick: Golden Knights -1½ (+175)

It is worth jumping all over the +175 odds for Vegas to win by at least two goals against a struggling Nashville team when making the betting pick.

Vegas won its first two games after the NHL All-Star break and then lost the last two. If that pattern holds, the Golden Knights are a solid pick to take care of business at home against the Predators

While forwards Jack Eichel, William Carrier and Pavel Dorofeyev continue to be sidelined for Vegas, defenseman Shea Theodore could return for this game.

 

Predators vs Golden Knights Player Prop Pick: Jonathan Marchessault 1+ Goals (+140)

Marchessault has scored three goals in the last five games and he had a goal the last time he faced the Predators, so he is a solid option when it comes to the NHL hockey bets today at +140 to score his 29th goal, one shy of his career-high.
