Online Hockey Betting Odds:
Vegas Golden Knights
The Golden Knight step into tonight’s contest sporting a 30-21-4 record that ranks them 3rd in the Pacific Division. Although they recently lost 4 in a row, the Golden Knights were saved by the fact that they’ve built up a decent cushion over the 4th seeded Vancouver Canucks. Right now Vegas is sitting on 64 points, which gives them 10 point lead over Vancouver. However, it still places them 5 points behind the 2nd seeded San Jose Sharks and a whopping 9 points behind the Pacific leading Calgary Flames. No doubt Vegas can bridge that gap with a win over Detroit tonight, but is a Golden Knights victory guaranteed this evening. Tonight’s online hockey betting odds are siding with Vegas here by a substantial amount. However, the spread isn’t exactly expecting a blowout here. All in all Vegas is 1-1 in their last 2 versus Detroit, so there’s no telling how this contest will turn out.
Players to Watch: Alex Tuch (16 G, 24 A, 40 PTS.), Jonathan Marchessault (17 G, 19 A, 36 PTS.), and William Karlsson (16 G, 17 A, 33 PTS.).
Detroit Red Wings
The Red Wings fly into this evening’s matchup sporting a 21-25-7 record that nets them 49 points on the year. Although they enter tonight’s matchup riding a 3 game winning streak, the odds don’t think that momentum will be enough to tilt the scales in Detroit’s favor. Looking over the numbers, it’s clear that Detroit will have a tough time measuring up against Vegas. Both teams sport lackluster offenses with Detroit ranking 26th in offense and Vegas coming in at 15th. However, the Golden Knights No. 5 rated defense should propel them to a victory over Detroit and their 23rd ranked defensive unit.
Players to Watch: Dylan Larkin (22 G, 27 A, 49 PTS.), Gustav Nyquist (12 G, 33 A, 45 PTS.), and Andreas Athanasiou (17 G, 16 A, 33 PTS.).
