These teams have split the first two meetings this season and the Vegas Golden Knights are probably the more consistent team overall, but we're getting a cup contender at home and a very cheap price. If it was the other way around, I'd be on Vegas. You can make a strong case for either side here with the way both teams are playing, so with the Avs at home, I'll take this price.
