The Vegas Golden Knights (24-18-6) and Buffalo Sabres (20-19-7) lock horns at KeyBank Center at 7 p.m. ET. We analyze the Golden Knights-Sabres sports betting odds and lines, with NHL matchup analysis, picks and tips.
Golden Knights at Sabres: Projected starting goalies
Marc-Andre Fleury vs. Linus Ullmark
Fleury heads into action with an 18-10-3 record, 2.84 goals against average and .907 save percentage with a pair of shutouts. He has actually been much better on the road than at home. He is 13-8-2 with a 3.05 GAA and .898 save percentage at T-Mobile Arena in 23 starts, while going 5-2-1 with a 2.30 GAA and .927 SV% in eight starts and nine appearances away from home.
Ullmark is coming off a 5-1 victory over the Detroit Red Wings on the road Sunday, and he has started nine of the past 10. That’s because Carter Hutton, who started out 6-0-0, hasn’t won since the end of October, going 0-7-2 since. Ullmark is a respectable 14-12-3 with a 2.81 GAA and .911 SV% overall.

Golden Knights 4, Sabres 3
The GOLDEN KNIGHTS ( -167) have actually cashed in just one of their past five tries against the Eastern Conference. However, the Sabres (+140) are just 4-9 in their past 13 games overall. Don’t go crazy, but a small-unit bet on VGK is certainly warranted.

Puck Line/Against the Spread (ATS)
I never like betting favorites on the road on the puck line, although the Golden Knights (-1.5, +165) are tempting. Still, I expect this game to be a close one, and if anything, the Sabres (+1.5, -200) are the way to go. However, they’re too expensive. AVOID.
The OVER 5.5 ( -143) is the best play on the board. The Over is 5-1 in the past six games overall for the Golden Knights, and 5-1 in their past six as a favorite. The Over has also hit in four of the past five for the Sabres when their playing the fourth game in a 4-in-6 (four games in six games) situation.
