Why Bet on the Vegas Golden Knights?

Vegas has yet to kick it into gear. For example, from Feb 12 through Feb 22, the Golden Knights lost 4-of-5. However, a close look reveals that the losses came against solid clubs, Minnesota, Carolina, Nashville and Toronto.

It’s only a matter of time before the defending Stanley Cup Champions get it going and overtake Vancouver in the Pacific Division. The run to the division title could happen this week punctuated by a huge victory over Eastern Conference squad Boston.

Why Bet on the Boston Bruins?

Boston has slowed down since their torrid start to the season. But although the Bruins lost 6-of-9 from Feb 6 to Feb 22, Boston continues to lead the deep Atlantic.

The Bruins are getting it done on sides of the ice, holding opponents to 2.7 goals from 31.4 shots and converting a high 3.3 goals per 30.3 shots. Boston also converts on power plays 23.3% of the time.

In addition, this takes place on Boston’s ice. So the Bruins, even though they will be the favorite, projects to get it done.

Golden Knights vs. Bruins Expert Betting Predictions

It is tough to go against Boston at home, even though the Bruins showed terrible form for most of February. Boston can step it up at a moment’s notice.

But in the first meeting, Vegas got the 2-1 overtime victory after Alex Pietrangelo shot the puck into the back of the net. What impresses is that Vegas only took 25 shots, most of which were quality, while Boston took 33 shots and still only managed a goal.

The Golden Knights could sit on a massive run that could lead to back-to-back Stanley Cup Playoffs. The team from Nevada is too good to continue to flounder behind the Canucks.

When it comes to this match, Vegas should offer overlay odds and there’s no telling if Boston solves their issues heading into March. Give Vegas the nod.
