Vegas faces true test at home against Blackhawks

The Vegas Golden Knights play host to the Chicago Blackhawks on Tuesday night and despite being an expansion franchise, they’re no pushover this season. The Knights are 6-1 SU and ATS in their first seven games and could make an excellent bet on the puckline as home dogs.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone UNDER in the Golden Knights’ last four games as underdog.
  • James Neal has 6 goals in 7 games for the Knights.
  • The Blackhawks are 1-7 SU in their last eight games against teams with winning records.

Although both teams have had mixed results this season securing totals, this game may prove a worthwhile investment on the OVER for bettors. The total, which opened at 6, has gone OVER in four of Vegas’ seven games this season. Vegas will be short-handed between the pipes as they will be relying on Oscar Dansk and AHL call-up Maxime Lagace to backstop their team for the time being.

On the road, Chicago can certainly put some points on the board. The total has gone OVER in eight of the Blackhawks’ last 10 games as road favorites. Not having to travel too far will help the Hawks too as they played their last game Saturday with a 4-2 win over Arizona.

This will be a true test for the Knights. Tuesday’s game is their first against a team with a winning record and one that is considered a true powerhouse in the Western Conference.
