Chicago Blackhawks vs. Las Vegas Golden Knights

NHL Hockey: Thursday, December 6th 2018 10:00 PM EST TIME

The Chicago Blackhawks are hoping to break their long losing streak as they head into the Sin City to take on the Las Vegas Golden Knights. As for the Knights, they have been a powerhouse in the Pacific once again.

Losing Faith

It seems as if the Chicago Blackhawks are still heading in the opposite direction as they have lost four straight games which those losses coming against the Knights, Predators, Jets and Flames. The Blackhawks will also be on no days of rest as they will be taking on the tough Anaheim Ducks on Wednesday night. Depending on the result in Anaheim, the Blackhawks could be still on their losing streak as they are heavy underdogs against the Ducks. Moving onto their last game, the Blackhawks were unable to get anything going against the as the Flames jumped to an early 3-1 lead as a scoreless 3rd period could not save the Blackhawks from another loss.

Coming into this game the Blackhawks are having trouble scoring in games as they are only getting an average of 2.75 goals per game which is ranked 24th in the league. On the flip side, it correlates with their power play goals as they are dead last in power play goals with only scoring on 12.5% of chances this season. Heading on the defensive side, the Hawks are allowing 3.68 goals per game which is 2nd to last in the league. Everything is looking bad on the Hawks side this season.

Climbing Up

The Las Vegas Golden Knights might of had a rough start to the season but they are now climbing back up in the division as they have won the past six of seven games including their last game against the Washington Capitals. It was a statement game for sure as the Knights jumped to an early lead and did not let go. The Knights were recently on a five-game winning streak which was broken due to a loss against the Oilers, as another five-game streak could be in the near future for the Knights especially taking on the Hawks on Thursday night.

The Las Vegas Golden Knights will have no problem stopping one of the worst offenses in the league as they have one of the top defenses in the league. The Knights enter this game with only allowing 2.76 goals per game which is ranked 7th best in the NHL. They are also going to enjoy sitting on the power play as they have stopped 85.% of chances so far this season.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

It is unclear what the puck line payout will be as that line will most likely come out after the result of the Blackhawks and Ducks game, but I’m still locking in my bet for a huge Knights win. The Knights are going up against the worst offense in the league as they will be enjoying a “Day Off” on Thursday.

Prediction: KNIGHTS -1.5

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

As Stated above, I do see this game getting out of hand early as the Knights might even have three goals in the first period. With that in mind the Over is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings. I’m taking the Over as the Knights will score the majority of the goals with a lucky shot or two coming from Chicago.

Prediction: OVER
