Vegas is 33-15 in their last 48 games overall and 2-5 in their last 7 road games while the under is 5-0 in their last 5 games overall. Colorado is 5-0 in their last 5 home gams and 6-2 in their last 8 games overall while the under is 21-10 in their last 31 games following a win. Vgeas is 2-6 in the last 8 meetings between these two teams.
The over between these two teams make sense considering the transition from a messy situation in an outdoor game to a normal situation in a standard arena and the skaters can get their feet back underneath them. However, I’m going to go contrary of that and suggest that it actually helps the defense. There’s no concerns about if you’re going to have sure footing, no more concerns than a normal game and you’re allowed to play your position without any worries of additional mishaps. I just think the transition back inside helps the defense, so I’ll side with the under.
