The Vegas Golden Knights have gotten better and more dominant over the last week and aren't a team you should be eager to step in front of right now. The Anaheim Ducks still can't catch a break, often feel like a club waiting for the season to end and playing at home hasn't helped much. The Golden Knights have also won six of the seven meetings this season against the Ducks, which includes outscoring them 9-2 in the two meetings this month. Give me the Golden Knights and the PL for max betting value.
