Predators vs Golden Knights Betting Prediction

Vegas started the season as one of the best teams in the NHL, but they have been very inconsistent over the last few weeks. The Golden Knights did not play well against Calgary in their last game, but they are still 15-5-2 at home this year. Nashville has won three of their last four games and they are 11-7-1 on the road. Vegas has scored two goals or fewer in four of their last five games and I have to stay away from them until I see a better effort. Take the Predators on the road here.
