Golden Knights Visit Blues as Road Dogs

The Golden Knights just completed a six-game homestand at 5-1 while the Blues have dropped five of six, including three of their last four at home.

Opening Odds Analysis

Hockey bettors are supporting host St. Louis in early wagering action, perhaps thinking this could be a letdown spot for Vegas after a positive run despite a rash of injuries. The Golden Knights relied on their home crowd to boost them throughout the homestand, twice rallying from 2-0 deficits to win 3-2, the latest coming on Saturday against the Columbus Blue Jackets as -145 favorites.

The Blues are up to -155 favorites in this spot, though, and they were one of the hottest teams in the NHL just a couple of weeks ago in getting off to an 8-2-1 start. Maybe both teams will reverse course in this one, but St. Louis is only 4-3-1 at home so far compared to a 4-3 mark for Vegas on the road.

Vegas News & Notes

The Golden Knights could not have played much better on their homestand, losing only to the Carolina Hurricanes in a game they also trailed 2-0 before tying it up 2-2 and then losing 4-2 as +120 underdogs last Tuesday.

In their win over the Blue Jackets, they saw Mattias Janmark score the game-winner on his first goal of the season while Keegan Kolesar also lit the lamp for the first time this year. Reilly Smith tallied the third goal, his fifth of the homestand to go along with two assists.

Captain Mark Stone (lower-body injury) returned to the lineup during the homestand as well after missing a month of action, and Vegas is hoping to get even more players back to join him in the near future.

St. Louis News & Notes

The Blues are coming off a 4-1 loss to the Dallas Stars on Saturday, giving up two short-handed goals to Roope Hintz, which were the first for their opponent this season. St. Louis closed as a +100 road underdog and saw the total go UNDER in its third straight game.

The team’s previous four losses during this recent skid were all decided by one goal, showing that the competitive nature has still been there despite being on the wrong end more often than not lately.

That bodes well for the Blues in this spot, since they should be very motivated in facing their former captain, Alex Pietrangelo, for the first time in front of a full crowd. Pietrangelo signed with the Golden Knights two years ago as a free agent and returned to St. Louis for the first time back on April 5 in front of only about 4,100 fans.

How Vegas Will Win

Vegas can win if the team can manage to score three goals or more. The Golden Knights are 11-1 when scoring at least three goals and have three or more in all of their wins.  

How St. Louis Will Win

The Blues won the first meeting between the teams 3-1 as +105 road underdogs on October 20 behind a 42-save performance from goaltender Jordan Binnington. If they can get a comparable performance from their goalie in this one, they can get back on track.
