Will Vegas continue to be profitable bet vs Carolina?

The Vegas Golden Knights will wrap up a four-game road trip in Carolina tonight. This will be the fourth game in six nights for Vegas, who is only one point behind Tampa Bay for the lead in the NHL standings. The Knights have dropped three of the last four games but opened as favorites vs the Hurricanes, who are 3-6 SU in their last nine games.

  • Vegas is 8-2 ATS in its last 10 games.
  • Carolina is 2-4 SU in its last 6 games.
  • The UNDER has hit in four of the Knights’ last five games on the road.

After closing out December winning seven of eight games, January has been a bit of a rough patch for Carolina. This month, the Hurricanes are 3-5 SU and are allowing 3.38 goals per game, ranking 23rd in the NHL in that span.

The ‘Canes will also be shorthanded for tonight’s matchup as one of their young guns Sebastian Aho, is still sidelined with a concussion. But the silver lining for Hurricanes backers is they're one of four teams to topple the Golden Knights in their building, winning 3-2 on December 12.

While Vegas may have a superior home record, its results on the road have been mixed. The Knights are 12-11 SU away from T-Mobile Arena and their defensive efforts may be left in the city that never sleeps. At home, Vegas is ranked second in goals allowed per game (2.18) but on the road, their ranking drops to 23rd (3.13).

On the offensive end, Vegas still brings the noise as they score just over 3 goals per game this season, ranking fifth. The talent on the Knights roster has blossomed throughout the season as four of their forwards have 15 goals or more with William Karlsson’s 25 goals placing him sixth in the NHL.
