Avalanche vs. Golden Knights Expert Betting Predictions
It’s tough to see the top team go down so fast. It’s not over until the fat lady sings, but playing on the road is never easy, especially when it’s the playoffs. I wouldn’t count out the Avalanche just yet, as they have been superior than Vegas in the stats. But this isn’t the Knights’ first time in the playoffs. They know the pressure they have and know how to get things done. Will this go all the way to Game 7?
