Those who have been around pretty much all season long know that I don't bet against the Vegas Golden Knights often. No matter what the line is, you made yourself a pretty penny this season if you just blindly back them. In this spot, the Vegas Golden Knights are at home where they rarely lose, and they're playing a Philadelphia Flyers squad that's coming off an overtime game on Saturday, and has played overtime contests in three of their last four games overall. This should be a tired unit. Give me the Vegas Golden Knights.
