Golden Knights vs. Jets Pick

NHL Predictions: Vegas Golden Knights vs. Winnipeg Jets 12/1/17

Can the Vegas Golden Knights go on the road and grab a win over the Winnipeg Jets when the two meet up tonight at 8PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, the Jets are the clear favorite at home tonight, as Winnipeg is getting odds of -185 to win while the Jets are getting a money line +160 to win. The over/under total for the contest has been set at 6 goals. Tonight’s game takes place from Bell MTS Place in Winnipeg, Manitoba.  

Vegas comes into tonight on a two-game losing streak, falling to the Stars and Wild by a combined score of 7-2. The Knights are 15-8-1 overall and 6-6-1 on the road. Vegas is putting up 3.46 goals per game this season while allowing 3 per contest. The Golden Knights are being led by William Karlsson, who has 13 goals and 10 assists. James Neal is adding 12 goals for the team. Maxime Lagace is 5-5-1 in net this year with a 3.66 GAA and a .870 save percentage.

Winnipeg is coming off a 3-2 OT loss at Colorado on Wednesday. The Jets are now 15-6-4 on the season and 8-2-1 at home. Winnipeg is scoring 3.24 goals per game this year while allowing just 2.68 per game. Mark Scheifele is leading the team with 12 goals and 17 assists while Blake Wheeler has six goals and 22 assists. Connor Hellebuyck is 13-2-3 in net this season and has a 2.35 GAA with a .926 save percentage.

Bet on Knights vs. Jets

Vegas won the first meeting this season with Winnipeg, 5-2 at home. However, the goalie injuries continue to be an issue for the Golden Knights. Lagace has not looked good thus far and I think he is likely to lose the battle with Hellebuyck, who has been much more consistent. The public betting is slightly with the Jets tonight, but I think Winnipeg will cruise to the win.
