Vegas vs Arizona: prediction for the NHL preseason match
Vegas Golden Knights
The Vegas Golden Knights got off to a bad start in the preseason. The team suffered two defeats in three games against San Jose (2:4) and Los Angeles (1:3). They only managed to get the upper hand against Colorado (4:3), where the Golden Knights showed excellent attacking play.
The Knights welcomed Los Angeles Kings to their home court and absolutely destroyed them (4:0). Defenceman Miromanov scored a double. The Knights also beat Colorado for the second time with a score of 7:4.
The Arizona Coyotesmounted a three-game winning streak at the start of the preseason. The Coyotes defeated Anaheim twice (4:1 and 4:3) and then outplayed the Los Angeles Kings.
After that, Arizona suffered a crushing defeat from Dallas (3:6). The defense couldn't cope with the pressure that the Dallas attack put on them, and goaltender Korenar had a terrible game, too. In their last game, Arizona beat Los Angeles again.
In 3 out of 5 head-to-head games, the teams failed to score in each period.
In 3 out of 4 head-to-head games, Vegas scored first.
Vegas recovered after a poor start in the preseason and now should consistently earn points. We believe that the Knights will secure a confident victory at home.
Our prediction - Vegas to win
The teams rarely score a lot against each other. We don't expect a barn-burner here and suggest playing the total under.
Second bet - total under 6 goals
