Posted by: Charlie Smith
The 2019 online NHL betting season continues this Wednesday night with an enticing Boston Bruins vs. Vegas Golden Knights matchup. The Bruins enter this matchup with their heads held high after winning the last 6 games in a row. The golden Knights on the other hand, are 1-4 in their last 5 and could really use a rebound at home this Wednesday night. So what kind of matchup can we expect in Vegas tonight? Let’s check out this evening’s NHL sports betting odds to find out.
Boston Bruins vs. Vegas Golden Knights – Wednesday, February 20th
When: 10:00 pm ET
Where: T-Mobile Arena, Las Vegas, Nevada
Stream: NBC Extra, NHL TV
Online NHL Betting Odds:
The Bruins enter tonight’s matchup sporting a 35-17-8 record that ranks them 2nd in the Atlantic Division. Furthermore, it nets them a total of 78 points on the season. And while that might be good enough to place 2nd here, it still places them pretty far behind the division leading Tampa Bay Lightning. Meanwhile, the Toronto Maple Leafs are doing all they can to surpass Boston with their 76 points on the season. Unfortunately for Boston, tonight’s online NHL betting odds are predicting a loss for the Bruins on the road. That’s a bit surprising since Boston is 2-1 in their last 3 versus Vegas. In addition, the Bruins are a better statistical team than Vegas. At the present moment Boston ranks 14th in scoring and 2nd in defense. Comparatively the Golden Knights rank 18th in scoring and 8th on defense.
Players to Watch: Brad Marchand (23 G, 47 A, 70 PTS.), David Pastrnak (31 G, 35 A, 66 PTS.), and Patrice Bergeron (21 G, 35 A, 56 PTS.).
Vegas Golden Knights
The Golden Knights enter tonight’s contest sporting a 32-25-4 record that nets them 68 points on the season. That 68 point tally presently ranks Vegas 3rd overall in the Pacific. And while they have a chunky lead over the 4th seeded Arizona Coyotes, who have 59 on the season, the club is still miles away from the division leading Calgary Flames. Because the Flames have amassed 79 points on the year, Vegas is still playing catch up. Nevertheless, tonight’s odds believe Vegas will be able to take a step in the right direction this evening. Again, this is surprising accounting for their recent mishaps. All in all this might make taking Boston straight up one of tonight’s better betting options.
Players to Watch: Alex Tuch (16 G, 26 A, 42 PTS.), Jonathan Marchessault (19 G, 21 A, 40 PTS.), and William Karlsson (18 G, 20 A, 38 PTS.).
