Chicago Blackhawks vs Vegas Golden Knights

Where: T-Mobile Arena, Las Vegas, NV

When: Tuesday, December 10, 10:00 PM. ET.

The Vegas Golden Knights will be trying to snap their two-game losing streak when they take on the Chicago Blackhawks on Tuesday night.

Blackhawks Going For Third Win In Four Games

The Blackhawks had their two-game winning streak snapped by the Arizona Coyotes in their last game and will be trying to bounce back from the loss with a win over the Golden Knights, which will give them their second consecutive win over Vegas and third win in their last four games.

Chicago has struggled offensively this season, averaging 2.73 goals per game. Even though they have won two of their last three games, they haven’t played well offensively and are averaging 2.5 goals per game in their last four outings.

Patrick Kane has been the key to Chicago’s offensive success and leads the team with 14 goals, 22 assists, and 36 points. He has scored only one goal and has three assists in their last five games.

Chicago has played well defensively this season, holding opponents to 2.97 goals per game. However, the team has struggled in its last four games, giving up four goals per game, and will need to play better if they want to pick up the win on Tuesday night.

Golden Knights Looking For Fifth Win In Seven Games

The Golden Knights followed up their four-game winning streak by losing their last two games and will be trying to get back on track with a win over the Blackhawks on Tuesday, which will give them their fifth win in their last seven games.

Vegas hasn’t played well offensively, averaging 2.81 goals per game. Like the Blackhawks, they have struggled in their last four games and are giving up 2.5 goals per game during that span and will need to play better than they did in their last four games if they want to avoid their second consecutive loss to the Blackhawks.

Reilly Smith leads the Golden Knights with 12 goals. He has one goal and three assists in their last five games. William Karlsson leads the team with 17 assists, but he has struggled in recent games and has only two assists in their last five games. Max Pacioretty leads the team with 26 points but has only one goal in their last five games.

The Golden Knights have played well on the defensive end, holding opponents to 2.91 goals per game. They held their last four opponents to three points per game and will need to do a better job defensively to give themselves a chance to beat Chicago on Tuesday.

Best Bets for this Game

Full-Game Side Bet

Insiders Status:


The Golden Knights are one of the best defensive teams in the league, holding opponents to 2.91 goals per game, and should be able to frustrate the Blackhawks, who are averaging 2.73 goals per game, offensively. Even though they were shut out by the New York Rangers in their last game, and managed only two goals in their previous game, the Golden Knights had been playing well offensively, averaging 3.5 goals per game during their four-game winning streak, and will bounce back against the Blackhawks, who are giving up four goals per game in their last six games. Even though the Blackhawks won the last meeting between the two teams, the Golden Knights have won seven of the last eight meetings between the two teams, making them the best bet here.

Prediction: Vegas Golden Knights

Full-Game Total Pick

Insiders Status:


The Golden Knights and Blackhawks seem to forget to play defense when they play against each other, with the teams playing over the total in seven of their eight meetings. However, this time around, the under is the best bet. Chicago is averaging 2.25 goals per game in its last four games while giving up four goals per game. Vegas is averaging 2.5 goals per game and giving up three goals per game. With both teams struggling offensively, the under looks like the best bet here. The under is 6-4 in Chicago’s last 10 games and 7-3 in Vegas’ last 10 games.

Prediction: Under
