The Vegas Golden Knights and the Tampa Bay Lightning meet in NHL action from the Amalie Arena on Thursday night. Let’s dive into the odds, injuries, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.


Tampa Bay is a -170 home favorite while Vegas is a +150 road underdog. The total for this game is set at 6 goals.


Adin Hill is questionable for this game with a lower body injury for Vegas while Tampa Bay has Pierre-Edouard Bellemare and Victor Hedman both listed as questionable for this game.

Matchup History

Vegas’ 5-4 win back on February 18th, 2023, made it back-to-back wins for the Golden Knights in this head-to-head matchup.


Vegas is 5-1 in their last 6 games against a team with a winning record and 2-7 in their last 9 road games while the under is 5-2 in their last 7 games against the Atlantic division. Tampa Bay is 1-5 in their last 6 games overall and 15-7 in their last 22 games following a win while the over is 3-0-1 in their last 4 games overall.


I’m backing Vegas here. Fading Tampa at home isn’t easy, but this Lightning team is struggling and are extremely hard to back in their current form, no matter how talented they may be. Vegas keeps finding ways to get it done and Adin Hill has been standing on his head between the pipes for Vegas. I think he can do it again here and steal another W for the Golden Knights so give me Vegas here.
