Golden Knights' Surprising Success Continues to Line the Pockets of Bettors

The Vegas Golden Knights haven’t looked like an expansion team in the 2017-18 NHL campaign, and the club has been especially hot of late. Vegas, which is 8-0-1 in its last nine games, hit the road to do battle with the Anaheim Ducks on Wednesday.

MyBookie opened the Golden Knights as +102 road underdogs with a total of 5.5.

Shark Bites
  • The UNDER is 5-0-1 in the Ducks last six home games.
  • The Golden Knights are 6-1 in their last seven games following a win.
  • The UNDER is 7-2 in the Ducks last nine games.

James Neal leads the team in scoring at 17 goals and has potted three in his last four, while Jonathan Marchessault leads the squad with 32 points, including six in the last three tilts.

Anaheim is returning home after going 3-2-1 on a road trip that ended with victories over the New York Islanders and Pittsburgh Penguins. The Ducks sit fourth in the Pacific but are above the playoff line for eighth in the Western Conference. Ryan Getzlaf has a six-game point streak with a goal and eight assists heading into this one.
