The Line: Vegas Golden Knights -240 / Ottawa Senators +214 --- Over/Under: 6
The Ottawa Senators and Vegas Golden Knights meet Sunday in NHL action at the T-Mobile Arena.
The Ottawa Senators look for a spark of consistency after splitting their last eight games. The Ottawa Senators are averaging 3.6 goals per game and are scoring on 24.1 percent of their power play opportunities. Mark Stone leads Ottawa with four goals, Thomas Chabot has eight assists and Chris Tierney has 15 shots on goal. Defensively, the Ottawa Senators are allowing 3.9 goals per game and are killing 67.7 percent of their opponents power plays. Craig Anderson has given up 28 goals on 295 shots faced and Mike Condon has allowed five goals on 29 shots. The Ottawa Senators have allowed three or more goals in seven of their first nine games.
The Vegas Golden Knights could use a feel good win after losing five of their last eight games. The Vegas Golden Knights are averaging 2.1 goals per game and are scoring on 9.4 percent of their power play opportunities. Jonathan Marchessault leads Vegas with five goals, William Karlsson has six assists and Reilly Smith has 22 shots on goal. Defensively, the Vegas Golden Knights are allowing 2.6 goals per game and are killing 81.5 percent of their opponents power plays. Marc-Andre Fleury has given up 21 goals on 211 shots faced and Malcolm Subban has allowed four goals on 31 shots. The Vegas Golden Knights have allowed three or less goals in each of their last five games.
The Senators are 5-11 in their last 16 games playing on 1 days rest, 15-36 in their last 51 road games and 8-21 in their last 29 Sunday games. The Golden Knights are 13-1 in their last 14 Sunday games, 37-17 in their last 54 home games and 4-10 in their last 14 overall. The under is 6-0 in Golden Knights last 6 overall and the over is 7-2-1 in Senators last 10 overall.
It seems like it's only a matter of time before things turn around for the Vegas Golden Knights, and they've played their best hockey so far this season at home. The Ottawa Senators continue to be hit or miss and have been blasted on the defensive side in their three road games this season. This is a game Vegas should win, and with the line so insane, I'm going to take the puck line to get the wager some actual value.
