The Vegas Golden Knights and Detroit Red Wings face off on Saturday in an NHL showdown at Little Caesars Arena. When these two teams faced off last December, it was Vegas that secured the 5-2 victory. 

Vegas comes into this game with a 17-7-1 record overall, and they have gone 10-2-1 away from home. In the last game against Pittsburgh, they were outscored 2-1 in the third period and that was the difference as they lost 4-3. Jack Eichel finished with one goal and one assist. Vegas is averaging 3.4 goals, while their defense is giving up 2.68 goals per game. The defense is ranked 7th in the league, and it’s going to need to be the strength here. Eichel has scored 12 goals and added 16 assists.

On the other side of this matchup is Detroit, who sits with an 11-6-5 record, and they have gone 7-3-3 at home. In the last game against the Buffalo Sabres, the defense was an issue, giving up five goals and that led to the one goal defeat. Andrew Copp finished with two shots on goal and two assists. Detroit is averaging 3.23 goals per game, while their defense is giving up 3.09 goals per game. The offense and defense are both ranked 16th in the NHL. Dylan Larkin has scored nine goals and added 16 assists.

The Red Wings are 4-1 in their last five games on Saturday. Vegas is 9-1 against the spread in their last 10 games against the Eastern Conference. The over is 7-1 in the Golden Knight’s last eight road games. The over is 4-0 in the Golden Knight's last 4 road games vs. a team with a winning home record.’

Even on the road, Vegas is going to have no issue getting the job done here. Eichel has been hard to defend this season, and he’s going to score a goal or two here. The defense is giving up only 2.68 goals per game, and the Red Wings are going to struggle here. Back the Golden Knights on the money line. This is one of my favorite plays on the board.
