Colorado is 4-1 in their last 5 games overall and 5-2 in their last 7 games against a team with a winning record while the over is 6-1 in their last 7 games playing on 2 days rest. Vegas is 22-7 in their last 29 home games and 35-16 in their last 51 games overall while the over is 7-1 in their last 8 games as a home underdog. The over is 5-0 in the last 4 meetings between these two teams.

I get the case that could be made for either side here as Colorado’s a really good team that’s a tempting proposition with a low line and Vegas is always lethal, especially at home. However, These two teams have a ton of offensive potential between them, and a ton of top-tier talent on both sides. I think the goaltenders are in for a workout here, so I’ll back the over in this contest.
