BETTING TRENDS

The total has gone UNDER in 10 of NY Golden Knights' last 12 games.

NY Golden Knights are 1-4 SU in their last 5 games.

NY Golden Knights are 2-6 SU in their last 8 games against NY Capitals.

The total has gone UNDER in 4 of NY Golden Knights' last 5 games on the road.

The total has gone OVER in 8 of NY Capitals' last 12 games.

Prediction

The Golden Knights have been awful lately scoring only 1.7 goals per game in their last 3 games and are coming from a tough game against the Avalanche. The Capitals are also on a 3 game losing streak but have faced some tough teams like the Panthers and the Lightning. With both teams struggling offensively I think the best play is the under.
