Golden Knights vs. Rangers Prediction

I’m on the Golden Knights here. I know New York is a strong team to back at home, but there’s just way too much value to pass on with the Golden Knights in this spot. Vegas is starting to pick it up again and I just don’t want to miss out on this kind of plus money as it’s not something we’ll get too much more with Vegas. Give me the Golden Knights here.
