NHL Wednesday Bet of the Night: Peterson picks the Vegas Golden Knights vs Minnesota Wild
Vegas Golden Knights (-120) @ Minnesota Wild (+100), 8 pm EDT
On Monday night in St. Paul, the Minnesota Wild (33-14-4) came back from being down 5-3 going into the third period to win 6-5 in regulation. Both Minnesota and the Vegas Golden Knights (36-13-2) lit the lamp a total of eleven times. This is particularly impressive when you consider that veteran netminders Cam Talbot and Robin Lehner are two goalies who rarely give up more than a couple goals per game. Vegas is averaging 4.1 goals per game in their last ten and Minnesota is averaging 4.4. We won't see eleven goals again, but seven or eight seems highly likely here. Take the over 5.5 total goals in this one.
PICK: Over 5.5 (+100)
