NHL Predictions: Vegas Golden Knights vs. New York Islanders 10/30/17

Can the Vegas Golden Knights go on the road and pick up another win when they take on the New York Islanders at 7PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, the Islanders are favored at home, as they are getting odds of -190 to win. The Knights are listed with a money line of +165 to prevail, while the over/under total has been set at 5.5 goals. Tonight’s game takes place from the Barclays Center in New York, New York.

Vegas is coming off an impressive 7-0 win over Colorado on Friday night for its fifth straight victory. The Knights are now 8-1 on the season and 2-0 on the road. The Knights are putting up 3.78 goals per game while allowing just 2.11 goals per contest. James Neal is leading the team with 10 points and seven goals while David Perron and Reilly Smith each have seven points. Marc-Andre Fleury is dealing with a concussion while Oscar Dansk is 3-0 in net with a 1.35 GAA in his place.

The Islanders are coming off a 6-2 win at Nashville on Saturday to improve to 6-4-1 on the season. The Isles have won four of their last five games. New York is putting up 3.45 goals per game this year while allowing 3.09 per contest. John Tavares is leading the team with nine goals and 13 points while Anders Lee has scored six goals. Jaroslav Halak is 4-2 in net this year with a 2.61 GAA and a .916 save percentage.

Bet on Knights vs. Islanders

This is the first meeting between these two this season. The Knights have remarkably found a way to start hot despite being an expansion team and despite being without their top goalie. Vegas has a steady balance of scoring while holding opponents to limited scoring. The Islanders have some good scoring as well, but they are allowing nearly one goal more per game than Vegas. The public is behind the Knights on the road tonight and I am with them.
