Tonight’s Action

Vegas Golden Knights at Minnesota Wild, 8 p.m. ET

Odds: Golden Knights +125, Wild -145 || O/U 5.5

Pick: Vegas (16-4-1), which won the first two meetings of the season between the West rivals, rides a six-game win streak. Minnesota (13-8-1) is 7-2-1 in its last 10. 

The Knights have the firepower (5th-best 3.33 goals per game) and defense (2nd-best 2.10 GAA) to again come out on top.

Take Vegas and the over.

Shoutout: On Friday, we asked subscribers to predict the winner, score, and first goal-scorer of Blues-Kings. The Blues won 3-2 in overtime, and St. Louis’ David Perron opened the scoring.

Sports Section had a rough outing. We had the Kings on the moneyline and the over 5.5.

Of the subscribers who predicted a Blues win, David Nagelberg (@SportsGuruDave) came closest to the final score. Nice job (again), David!

Keep the picks coming!
