Blues vs. Golden Knights Pick

NHL Predictions: St. Louis Blues vs. Vegas Golden Knights? 10/21/17

Will the Vegas Golden Knights manage another win when it plays host to the St. Louis Blues tonight at 10:30PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, the Blues are favored on the road, as they are getting odds of -150 to win, while the Knights are getting a money line of +130 to win. The over/under total for the contest is listed at 5.5 goals. Tonight’s game takes place from T-Mobile Arena in Paradise, Nevada.

The Blues are coming off a 4-3 win at Colorado on Thursday night. St. Louis is now 6-2 on the season and 4-2 on the road. St. Louis is putting up 3.25 goals per game while allowing 2.63 per game. Jaden Schwartz had six goals and six assists to lead the team while Vladimir Tarasenko has five goals. Jake Allen has a 2.80 GAA over six games and also has a .917 save percentage.

Vegas is coming off a 5-4 OT win over the Sabres at home. The Knights are 5-1 on the season with a 3-1 record at home. Vegas is averaging 3.33 goals per game this season while giving up 2.50 per contest. Starting goalie Marc-Andre Fleury is out with a concussion. He has posted a 2.48 GAA average this year. Malcolm Subban has played in his place and has a 2.42 GAA over two games and has a .911 save percentage. James Neal is leading the offense with six goals and two assists.

Bet on Blues vs. Golden Knights

The Knights have been very impressive to start their first year, but I have to give the edge to the Blues. While these two have never met, the loss of Fleury in net is likely to be too much for the Knights to overcome. Vegas doesn’t have tremendous depth in its first year, so losing your starting goalie will have a big impact. The public is behind the Blues tonight, and I am siding with them.
