Golden Knights at Ducks: Odds, lines, predictions and picks
Golden Knights 5, Ducks 2
Money line (ML)
The Golden Knights (-250) should continue to take care of business on its California road swing. They're preparing for a deep postseason run while the Ducks are just playing out another lost season.
The value is with the puck line, however, as we can't justify laying the chalky -250 for a regular-season hockey game.
Against the spread (ATS)
GOLDEN KNIGHTS -1.5 (+110) is the bet to make with perhaps a lighter sprinkle on VEGAS -2.5 (+185) on the alternate line.
Just one of Vegas' head-to-head wins this season was by a multi-goal margin (5-2). There should be much greater separation between these two teams with the Golden Knights fourth in the NHL in 5-on-5 Corsi percentage and the Ducks just 23rd.
Take the OVER 5.5 (-105) with the Golden Knights likely to provide the bulk of the scoring.
Vegas scored 6 or more goals in three of its last six games and went a modest 2-for-13 on the power play in those games.
