Vegas Golden Knights vs. Minnesota Wild Game 6 Predictions

Score Prediction Wild 3 Golden Knights 2

The UNDER is very tempting in this series, given by the U5.5 at -120, both goalies' recent play, and the UNDER hit in three of five meetings. However, Minnesota typically goes OVER at home, as the OVER has hit in two of the last three meetings as well. The UNDER isn't as given as advertised, so buyers beware of that market.

If you have any conviction in the UNDER, instead of spending -120 for U5.5 try a different market. Both teams to score at least two goals in 60 minutes has failed to hit in three of the last five meetings, and four of the last seven. It is a risk, but the value is there for +117 over the -120.

Minnesota has cashed on the third period ML in six of nine games when playing as the underdog, so perhaps consider a 3P bet with the Wild at +100 or at +180 on the 3-way line. Kirill Kaprizov finally found his first career playoff goal, and if Minnesota has any chance to win he will continue to find the goal column. Mark Stone has scored in three straight games.
