Ducks at Golden Knights: Odds, picks and betting tips
Moneyline : AVOID the moneyline on Vegas tonight at -239. That feels like an absurd number given the Golden Knights’ home struggles and the fact Anaheim won last night. There is way more value elsewhere.
Spread : Let’s make this pick here with a slightly better value, with odds of +120 to cover -1.5 and win by two or more goals. A $10 bet returns a profit of $12.
Over/Under : Take the UNDER 5.5 (-106). We’re looking for a 3-1 Vegas win in what expects to be a better matchup for the Golden Knights.
