Vegas Golden Knights
Vegas is having a really good season. At 25-10-2, the Golden Knights are firmly in second place in the West Division, and they currently have the third-best goal differential in the NHL.
Vegas is a monster on defense. They allow the second-fewest goals per game in the NHL (2.3) and the fewest goals per game on the road (2.29).
The Golden Knights haven’t been great recently, as they are just 5-4-1 in their last 10 games. However, this is a deep, hard-hitting team filled with grinders. Ever since they entered the league, Vegas is always a threat.
St. Louis Blues
St. Louis is in a tailspin!
The Blues have lost seven straight games and now are sitting at just 16-16-6. They sport a goal differential of -20 and are bottom-10 in the league in both offensive and defensive goals per game.
However, somewhat inexplicably, St. Louis has been particularly bad at home. It boasts the fourth-worst home offense and the worst home defense in the NHL. I guess that explains why St. Louis is somehow just 4-9-4 at home this season.
On Monday, the Blues got blitzed by Vegas, losing 6-1 while going 0-for-3 on the power play, all against the Knights backup goalie. The Blues need to get back in form quick if they expect to compete tonight.
Free Vegas Golden Knights vs. St. Louis Blues NHL Prediction:
Based almost entirely on the recent history between these two, I’m taking Vegas and the Over here.
In the last 10 games between these two teams, Vegas is 7-2-1 and won the last three meetings by a combined score of 16-3.
Plus, Vegas is 22-9 as the favorite this year while St. Louis is just 2-8 as the underdog.
On the total: The Over has hit in every meeting between the two this season, and the Over has now hit in nine straight games between St. Louis and Vegas.
These may be two elite goalies, but those are trends you can’t ignore. I’m banking on Vegas to win in a high-scoring affair today.
