Buffalo Sabres at Vegas Golden Knights

NCAAF: Tuesday October 16, 2018 at 10:00 PM EST

After getting shut out in their season opener the Sabres have gotten back on track winning three of their last four games. They beat Vegas on home ice in their 3rd game of the season where they scored four goals and they have scored four goals in their two games since. The Sabres have been up on and down on defense and rank 25th in the league in goals against and they rank a legit 11th early in the season in goals per game.

Vegas was the Cinderella last season making the finals in their first year in the league, but their 2nd season has not started so smooth. They are coming off a solid shutout win in their last game, but they have still lost four of their last six games and only rank 29th in the league averaging just 1.7 goals per game. The Golden Knights have lost their last four games facing a team with a winning record.

Doing a lot with a little

In their last game the Sabres beat the Arizona Coyotes 3-0 and they got the shutout even though they were outshot 36-23. Buffalo jumped on early with two goals in the first period and they blocked 19 shots in the game to help preserve the shutout. Three different players scored for the Sabres including Jeff Skinner, who had a goal and an assist. Backup G Linus Ullmark (1-0 0.00 GAA) had his first career shutout in the game and he may get the start again since #1 G Carter Hutton (2-2 3.07 GAA) allowed six goals in his last game.

Jack Eichel leads the club early in the season in both points and goals and he and Sam Reinhart have each netted three goals while no other Buffalo player has more than one goal. The Sabres are 1-0 on the road this season and the shutout win over Arizona was their first road games of the season.

Stopping the bleeding

The Golden Knights beat the Philadelphia Flyers 1-0 in the City of Brotherly Love in their last game to snap their three-game losing streak. Vegas gave up 13 goals in their three-game skid before a shutout win in their last game over Philly. Vegas only had 21 shots in the game, but they held the Flyers to 26 shots. Cody Eakin netted his 2nd goal of the season for the only goal for Vegas in the game and that goal came in the 3rd period. Marc-Andre Fleury (2-3 3.08 GAA) stopped all 26 shots he faced in the game and he had given up four goals in each of his previous two starts. Jonathan Marchessault leads the team in points and three players have scored two goals. Last season the Golden Knights won both of their games facing the Sabres with one game going to a shootout and the other going to overtime. On the season Vegas is 2-3-0 at home.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

Vegas has not looked like the Vegas of late season, but they are coming off a shutout win in their last game. The Sabres are also coming off a shutout win over the Coyotes, but can they wilt twq games in a row in their Western Conference swing? The answer to that is no. Vegas will feed of the home crowd and get the win in what will be a low scoring affair.

Prediction: PICK: Golden Knights

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

Both teams are coming off shutout wins where the total went Under in each game and that is the pick for this one as well.

Prediction: PICK: Under

Jason Green

I dig every sport and the NFL is my favorite. My team is the Redskins and my 2nd favorite is whoever is playing the Cowboys! I am a great handicapper and if you don’t believe me just ask. I don’t just write about betting on games I actually bet on them and I have done well, which is why it is a good idea to follow my picks.
