The Blackhawks are 15-37 in their last 52 vs. Pacific, 0-4 in their last 4 vs. Western Conference and 3-7 in their last 10 overall. The Golden Knights are 4-0 in their last 4 Tuesday games, 3-7 in their last 10 games playing on 1 days rest and 2-8 in their last 10 vs. Central. The under is 10-2 in Blackhawks last 12 games playing on 1 days rest. The under is 6-0 in Golden Knights last 6 home games. The Blackhawks are 1-7 in the last 8 meetings. The road team is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings. The favorite is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings. The over is 7-1 in the last 8 meetings.

I'm not laying big prices with a Vegas Golden Knights squad that's had issues stringing wins together and isn't as effective at home as they've been in the past. I'm also not backing a Chicago Blackhawks team that's back to struggling defensively. Instead, I'll take the over. Both the Blackhawks and Golden Knights have had issues keeping the puck out of the net these last couple of weeks and when these teams met last month, it produced eight goals. In fact, six of the last seven meetings between the Golden Knights and Blackhawks have produced at least seven goals. Give me the over.
