Vegas Golden Knights Betting Analysis

The Vegas Golden Knights have been on a great stretch in March, with wins in ten of twelve contests, where they’ve scored at least three goals in each victory. They’ve amassed the most points in the NHL this month, with Edmonton second in that category. For the campaign, Vegas is tops in the Western Conference with 96 points, which is fascinating because they’re just 15th in goals/game, and tenth in goals against per contest.

Former Kings netminder Jonathan Quick was acquired from Columbus just before the trade deadline. He’s been solid, winning five of six and has a save percentage of .908 (better than his .876 clip with LA). That’s important because goaltender Logan Thompson returned from a six-week absence (lower body), only to get hurt again two days ago.

Vegas has won their last six road games, and the over has hit in four of their last five following a victory.

Golden Knights vs Oilers Projected Starting Goalies

Team Goalie Record SV% GAA
Vegas Golden Knights Jonathan Quick 16-14-4 .882 3.40
Edmonton Oilers Stuart Skinner 23-14-4 .910 2.90

Quick has one shutout with Vegas, but in his other five starts, has given up at least three goals. In ten of his last twelve stars, Stuart Skinner has surrendered three or fewer markers.

Edmonton Oilers Betting Analysis

Through the first half of the season, the Oilers won as many games as they’d lost (21-18-3), but since then, they’ve been fantastic. They’ve gone 20-5-5 record, which is the third most points in that span. They’ve scored at a whopping 4.53 goals/game clip, with the second-best team (Florida) at 3.77. They’ve been exactly middle of the road in goals allowed during that time frame, ranking 16th in the NHL.

Connor McDavid continues to do spectacular Connor McDavid things, as he netted two goals on Wednesday, including the OT winner. He has 60 snipes on the year, in his quest to become the first 70-goal scorer since Teemu Selanne and Alexander Mogilny each had 76 in 1992-93.

The Oilers have won their six contests in their barn, and the over goal total has gone 5-1-1 in their last seven on two or more days rest.

Golden Knights vs Oilers Pick & Prediction

There should be goals aplenty in this one, with these two squads ranking first and second in goals this month. Our model has this Golden Knights vs Oilers game going the road team’s way 3.70-3.62.

Golden Knights vs Oilers Same-Game Parlay Picks

Pick Odds
Vegas Golden Knights Moneyline +160
Over 7 Goals +110
PARLAY ODDS  +310

Both of these squads are on an absolute tear, yet Vegas is still six points ahead of Edmonton. Given that, selecting the best team in the West at +160 odds is awfully appealing, as our model suggests.

The over is 8-2-1 in the Oilers last eleven following a win. In a perfect world, the line would be 6.5 goals instead of seven, but they’re each capable of lighting the lamp in droves.

Pick: Vegas Golden Knights Moneyline (+160), Over 7 Goals (+110)
