Vancouver Canucks vs Vegas Golden Knights prediction

I've bee pounding the table for the Canucks all season long, and we've cashed on them all season as they continue to get no respect from oddsmakers. I wouldn't talk you off the ledge if looking at the Canucks here given the week Vegas is having. With all that said, the Vegas Golden Knights are due for a bounce back performance, as they don't string together losses long. Also, the Golden Knights are still 19-9-2 at home this season. Give me more plus money and I'll side with the Canucks. Cheap prices on both sides, I'm going to give the edge to the Golden Knights on their home ice.
