Yesterday wasn’t great for me with a 2 unit loss on Tampa, losing 2-1 to the Isles in Game 1. Tonight the second series of the semifinals starts with the West Champion Vegas Golden Knights going against the Montreal Canadiens to go to the Stanley Cup.
Game 1: Golden Knights vs. Canadiens (9:00)
As I broke down in my series preview, I think the Vegas Golden Knights cruise through this series. The North Division was the worst in hockey and I think Vegas is the better team in this series by far in every aspect of the game. In addition to my existing futures on Vegas to win the Cup and my great value future on Vegas to win this series to reach the Cup Finals, I’m adding on 2 units on Vegas to win the series in six games or less and for Game 1 I’m rolling with the Knights in regulation for 2 units.
2u Vegas in regulation (-134)
1u Lightning/Islanders over 5.5 games played (-139)
1u Lightning to win series in six games or less (-125)

2u Stanley Cup Champions: Vegas Golden Knights (+700)
2u Stanley Cup Champions: Vegas Golden Knights (+185)
