NHL Best Bets: September 12
Andrew Dewhirst brings you his best bets and top Monkey Knife Fight plays for today's slate.
Vegas Golden Knights vs Dallas Stars 8 PM
This series has proven tough to predict so far, the trend so far has been alternating wins, and I expect that will continue against tonight. Dallas hasn’t won two straight games since the start of the previous round, and Vegas is in a similar situation as well. I am going to take the Golden Knights tonight.
Pick: Golden Knights +160
Monkey Knife Fight Play of the Night
Welcome back for another of our MKF NHL plays of the night
More of Less 2.5x
Max Pacioretty under 7.5 Points
This total feels really high for Pacioretty. At times he is a five-shot per night player, but he been closer to three in the last few games. If we use three as a baseline, he will need a couple of points to hit the over tonight, so I am going to take the under.
Tyler Seguin under 5.5 Points
Seguin has just one point in his last three games, and his shot pace doesn’t lend well to him hitting the over and really doesn’t block many shots. He would likely need to score a goal to hit the over today, and those are likely to be in short supply. I am going to take the under.
