Carolina Hurricanes vs Vegas Golden Knights prediction

The Carolina Hurricanes and the plus money is intriguing, as you’re not going to get these chances often. The Canes are too good of a team to turn down at these prices. However, the Hurricanes are on the end of a back to back and on the flip side, you’re not going to get the Golden Knights at home at this cheap of a price, especially with a rest advantage. The Vegas Golden Knights are 19-6-2 on their home ice this season. With the rest edge, I’m not turning down Vegas at this cheap of a price.
