Vegas vs Chicago
Vegas Golden Knights IMO are the pick here. The odds are low but with regular time option we have quite decent, almost even odds, so we don't need to risk with a puck line which I rarely do.
Plenty reasons for me to trust to Vegas. This new NHL franchise was great. I already wrote recently how most of the teams acting when visit Vegas. Namely, it's not rare case to they decide to take some fun in Vegas so the game itself is not in main focus. So, clear underperforming. But I can't say this is the reason for amazing Vegas home record cause they are great also on the road.
In any case, playing tonight on home ice is huge advantage for Vegas.
Furthermore, Vegas is coming from a loss and they are great on such spots. Namely this team rarely loses straight games. So far they were 14-5 in first game after the loss.
Also, have in mind Chicago Blackhawks are terrible as of late. The visiting team has lost even six straight games while in last two scored just one goal combined. The hardly explained is the fact that the Blackhawks in fact outshoot opponents in these last two games. It was 82:41 in shoots combined in those two games in favor of Chicago. So double more shots. But, no matter when they don't use the chances.
Chicago is in bad momentum and I doubt they will be able to bounce back now on this for most teams very tough visit.
