Money Line Pick

The Golden Knights will play the second night of a back to back after winning on Friday against Carolina. They are still really struggling, going 2-6 in their last 8 games (including Friday). They are clinging to a playoff spot right now, just one point in front of Arizona, who holds the final playoff spot in the West. Now Nashville is in a worse situation right now as they are three points behind the Coyotes. They are starting to better, going 3-1 over their last 4 games. Another strange factor in this game is the Golden Knights are heavy underdogs. They are not exactly used to this role and are 6-23 in their last 29 games as a dog. That said, look for Nashville to pull out a win at home to inch closer to the playoffs.

Over Under Pick

Given the struggles Vegas have had as of late, the over is where I will be looking. This mainly has to do with the defense of both teams, each allowing an average of 3.2 goals over their last five games. Also, the fact that the over is 13-5 in Vegas’ last 18 games as an underdog. The over is also 31-17 in the games involving Nashville this year. By no means is this a total I love, but it has to be a lean to the over because the defending for the Golden Knights has not shown me enough to be comfortable backing an under.
