Minnesota Wild vs. Vegas Golden Knights Game 2 Predictions

Score Prediction Golden Knights 3 Wild 2

Game 1 featured stellar goalkeeping from both Cam Talbot and Marc-Andre Fleury, and it's hard not to think the same occurs in Game 2. Besides, the goal total has gone UNDER in four of the last five meetings between these teams. The smart odds, and solid goaltending, should see most bettors back the goal total going UNDER in most of these games - especially inside T-Mobile.

In terms of a winner, there's no real reason to fade Minnesota. The Wild have now won five of their last six games against the Golden Knights, entering with plus-value in Game 2. Keep in mind, Vegas has won 11 of its last 12 home games after going into overtime the game prior. Minnesota was four minutes away from winning the third period in Game 1 as well.

The Wild have won the third period in four of their last five games when playing as the underdog after a road win. They were four minutes away from cashing a +112 third period money-line, now entering Game 2 with the same line.
