The Vancouver Canucks have the rest advantage, but they have yet to prove they can get the job done on the road at a decent clip, and it’s hard to trust them against respectable teams. The Vegas Golden Knights have cooled off over the last couple of weeks, but they’re still one of the top teams in the league and not a side you should be looking to bet against at home. Give me Vegas to get another solid home win.
