ASA NHL TOP PLAY ON 10* Vegas Golden Knights Puck Line (-1.5 goals) over San Jose Sharks, Wednesday at 9:05 PM ET - San Jose is certainly not going to lay down here against rival Vegas but the Sharks just do not have it this season. In fact, the Golden Knights have won 7 straight meetings and the average margin of victory has been 2 goals which is what we need here to cash this ticket on the puck line. This is the regular season finale for the Golden Knights and they are still mathematically alive for the top spot in the division. With a win tonight and the Avalanche just losing once in last two games, Vegas would get the top spot. Yes the loss to Colorado Monday really hurt the Golden Knights but they will not hang their heads here. They want to end the season on a high note heading into the playoffs and, as you can tell from the -200 money line on this game, Vegas is expected to do just that. While this line is too pricey on the money line we do see excellent line value with the plus money available on the puck line. The Sharks most recent loss was in overtime but this followed a stretch in which 12 of 16 defeats were by a margin of 2+ goals. San Jose has lost 13 of 16 games overall entering this one. The Golden Knights, prior to the loss to Colorado, had won 14 of 16 games! 11 of last 16 wins for Vegas have been by 2+ goals. Laying the 1.5 goals (and getting solid plus money in doing so) with road favorite Vegas is the big value play here.
