Pittsburgh Penguins vs Vegas Golden Knights prediction

You can make a case for the Pittsburgh Penguins, especially with them winning 7 of the last 10 games against Vegas. However, neither team has been consistent over the last couple of weeks, and it's the Vegas Golden Knights who are 17-5-2 at home this season. Cheap price across the board and two hit or miss teams recently. I have to side with Vegas at home given the dominance this season.
