Golden Knights vs Hurricanes Odds

Game Time Team Puck Line Total Moneyline
7:00 pm ET Vegas Golden Knights +1.5 (-180) O 6.5 (-105) +138

Odds as of January 24th at Barstool Sportsbook App

The Golden Knights are -180 on the puckline, while the home team is listed at +155 to win by 2+ goals in the Golden Knights vs Hurricanes odds. Carolina is just outside of the Top 5 in the Stanley Cup odds, with Vegas in the fifth spot priced at +800.

Hurricanes Favored in Tuesday NHL Odds

The Carolina Hurricanes are once again listed as betting favorites in the NHL odds on Tuesday. Rod Brind’Amour’s club has the second-highest points percentage in the NHL (.737) and rarely loses against inferior teams. The Hurricanes are 22-6 as betting favorites in 2021-22.

Although Carolina is 7-2-1 in its last 10 games, they did lose 7-4 to the Devils in their last game Saturday. This was a back-to-back situation, however, and the Canes were starting inexperienced goalie Jack Lafontaine. Freddie Andersen is expected to be back in the cage Tuesday.

The Hurricanes lead the NHL in GAA (2.40) while featuring the fourth-highest scoring offense (3.58 GF/GP). They rank top-five in special teams (both PP & PK) and have the third-best faceoff percentage (54.4%). It’s easy to feel confident betting Carolina on any given night in the NHL.

The Hurricanes are icing a fairly healthy roster right now, with no absences having a major impact on their betting value. Forward Jordan Martinook is the team’s lone player in COVID protocol, while LW Teuvo Teravainen is questionable vs Vegas with a lower-body injury.

Does Vegas Hold Betting Value as Road Underdogs?

The Golden Knights bring an impressive 11-5-0 road record into Tuesday’s matchup with Carolina. Vegas is 5-4 when listed as the betting underdog in the NHL odds. Pete DeBoer’s team has struggled a bit lately, however, posting a 4-4-2 record in their last 10 contests. Their recent slump is the reason for being priced as +138 underdogs in the Golden Knights vs Hurricanes odds.

The Golden Knights have some key absences which are affecting their NHL betting value. Forwards Mark Stone and Reilly Smith are on the COVID protocol list, while sniper Max Pacioretty and blueliner Alec Martinez are sidelined by injury.

Defense is the main area the Golden Knights have been struggling in lately, as Vegas ranks 18th in the NHL in GAA (3.02). The good news is they shutout Washington 1-0 on Monday for Robin Lehner’s first shutout of the season. Michael Amadio scored the Golden Knights’ lone goal.

Offensively, Chandler Stephenson leads the team in scoring with 12 goals and 38 points in 40 games. Jonathan Marchessault has also stepped up lately, notching three goals over his last five games. Vegas’ offense is sixth-best in the NHL, averaging 3.46 goals per game.

Golden Knights vs Hurricanes Pick & Prediction

This will be the second meeting of the season between Vegas and Carolina. The Hurricanes beat the Golden Knights 4-2 at T-Mobile Arena back in November. Sebastian Aho had a goal and an assist, as the Hurricanes outshot Vegas 42-23 in a dominant victory.

Golden Knights vs Hurricanes Recent Results

Date Home-Away Money Line Puck Line Over/Under
11/16/2021 VGK 2 – CAR 4 CAR CAR Push
02/08/2020 VGK 5 – CAR 6 SO CAR CAR Over
01/31/2020 CAR 3 – VGK 4 VGK VGK Over
02/01/2019 CAR 5 – VGK 2 CAR CAR Over
11/03/2018 VGK 3 – CAR 0 VGK VGK Under

The Hurricanes flexed their depth in the first meeting, which is something we’re likely to see again Tuesday with the Golden Knights banged up. Carolina also holds a big goalie advantage, with starter Freddie Andersen expected to face VGK backup, Logan Thompson.

This is a great spot to target the Canes, with them having a rest advantage over Vegas and aiming for a bounce-back win. Carolina is 4-0 in their last four games playing on two days rest, while Vegas is 1-4 in their last five contests against teams over .500. Not to mention, Carolina’s starting goaltender Freddie Andersen is currently the fourth betting favorite to win the Vezina Trophy at Caesars Sportsbook.

The Hurricanes have scored at least four goals in 10 of their past 11 games and should feast on a VGK team projected to start its backup goalie and missing a couple of key players. Take Carolina on the moneyline at -167 in the Golden Knights vs Hurricanes Tuesday NHL odds.
