The Vegas Golden Knights and the Florida Panthers meet in game four of the Stanley Cup Finals in NHL action from the FLA Live Arena on Saturday. Let’s dive into the odds, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.
The Panthers are -120 home favorites while the Golden Knights are +100 road underdogs. The total for this game is set at 5.5 goals.
Florida’s 3-2 win in game three snapped Vegas’ two-game win streak in this head-to-head matchup.
Vegas is 15-6 in their last 21 road games and 36-15 in their last 51 games overall while the over is 4-1 in their last 5 Stanley Cup Final games. Florida is 12-3 in their last 15 games overall and 76-34 in their last 110 home games while the over is 4-1 in their last 5 games against the Western Conference.
I’m backing the under in this one. There’s just so much at stake on both sides, with Vegas trying to go home up 3-1 and Florida trying to make this a best of three, that I think we see a more methodical style of play on both sides. The goaltending stood tall in game three and I think we could see another first to 3 wins kind of game here. Give me the under.
