NHL Hockey Betting Odds:
Heading into Game 3, the Jets know they could’ve done better in Games 1 & 2. Now, with the series heading to Vegas, the NHL hockey betting odds will be sticking with the Golden Knights all the way. Although Winnipeg found plenty of success on the road against Nashville in the previous round, the Vegas Golden Knights are a different animal entirely. For starters, Vegas has only lost one home game during this year’s playoffs. Coming off of a loss, Winnipeg will need to up their game if they are to topple the Golden Knights on the road.
Players to Watch: Blake Wheeler (3 G, 15 A, 18 PTS), Mark Scheifele (12 G, 6 A, 18 PTS), and Dustin Byfuglien (5 G, 10 A, 15 PTS).
Vegas Golden Knights
Accounting for their aforementioned postseason record at home, Vegas has to be feeling pretty good about their chances this evening. Obviously the Jets are not to be taken lightly, but the Golden Knights certainly have the chips stacked in their favor. With only three losses so far in the playoffs, the NHL’s newest team is one tough cookie to crack. Winnipeg was able to manhandle the Predators but will find it much harder scoring on the road against Vegas. After all, Vegas shut out the San Jose Sharks 3 times during their best of 7 series.
Players to Watch: Jonathan Marchessault (6 G, 9 A, 15 PTS), Reilly Smith (1 G, 13 A, 14 PTS), and William Karlsson (5 G, 7 A, 12 PTS).
