Minnesota Wild vs. Vegas Golden Knights NHL Betting Prediction
Posted by: Charlie Smith
Online NHL betting players looking for a great matchup to wager on this Monday night need look no further than this evening’s Minnesota Wild vs. Vegas Golden Knights contest. The Wild are vying to get out of their current rut, which has seen them post a 3-4 record in their last 7. The Golden Knights on the other hand, are looking to secure their Pacific Division standing in the coming days. So what kind of turnout can we anticipate this Monday night? Let’s check on this evening’s NHL sportsbook odds to find out.
Minnesota Wild vs. Vegas Golden Knights – Monday, January 21st
When: 6:00 pm ET
Where: T-Mobile Arena, Las Vegas, Nevada
TV: Local Broadcasts
Stream: NHL TV
Online NHL Betting Odds:
The Wild rush into this evening’s matchup sporting a 24-21-3 record that nets them 51 points on the season. As aforementioned, Minnesota hasn’t been having the best of luck as of late and will be looking to turn things around on the road tonight. With 51 points on the season, Minnesota can still catch up to the 3rd seeded Colorado Avalanche – who have 52 on the year themselves. And since the Wild are 3-0-1 in their last 4 meetings against Vegas, they might be able to bridge that gap this Monday night. However, tonight’s online NHL betting odds are predicting a sour night for Minnesota. This is likely due to Minnesota’s offense, which ranks 26th in scoring. The Golden Knights on the other hand, come in sporting the 13th best scoring offense in the league. And while Minnesota ranks 8th overall in defense, Vegas is actually better off with the NHL’s 5th best defense.
Players to Watch: Zach Parise (20 G, 22 A, 42 PTS.), Mikael Granlund (12 G, 27 A, 39 PTS.), and Eric Staal (14 G, 17 A, 31 PTS.).
Vegas Golden Knights
The Golden knights step into this evening’s matchup sporting a 29-17-4 record. That record grants them 62 points on the season, which pegs them as a top 3 team in the Pacific Division. Right now the Pacific is led by the Calgary Flames, who have a surprising 69 points on the season. Nevertheless, Vegas can still take the No. 1 spot if they can mount a lengthy win streak. Unfortunately for the Golden Knights, they enter tonight’s game with a 2-2 record in their last 4 games. Although those losses came against some of the better teams in the NHL, Vegas will still need to mount a better record in the coming days. Fortunately tonight’s game versus Minnesota should give them a head start.
Players to Watch: Alex Tuch (15 G, 23 A, 38 PTS.), Jonathan Marchessault (17 G, 17 A, 34 PTS.), and William Karlsson (16 G, 16 A, 32 PTS.).
