Forward Gabriel Vilardi is out for Winnipeg.



Golden Knights vs Jets Over/Under Pick: Under 5½ (-105)

Vegas has scored 20 goals in its last seven games while Winnipeg has seven goals in its four-game losing streak. So even though the total is set at 5½ goals, take the under in this matchup even if the total has gone over in five of the last six games when Vegas has played at Winnipeg. That is something to consider for NHL over/under predictions.



Player Prop Pick: Vegas’ Jack Eichel 1+ Goals (+120)

After being held without a point in his first two games back after missing nearly two months due to injury, Eichel has five goals and seven assists in his last nine games. With 25 shots on goal as Vegas is 3-0-1 over its last four games, Eichel is a solid bet to score in this matchup for your player prop bets.
