NHL Bets of the Day: Best Hockey Picks Today 6/14/21

Max Pacioretty, Vegas Golden Knights vs. Montreal Canadiens

Anytime Goal Score (+120)

The Vegas Golden Knights face the Montreal Canadiens on Monday night as the Stanley Cup semifinal series opens in Las Vegas. Golden Knights winger Max Pacioretty has been on a roll with eight points in seven games this postseason, including four goals (three game-winners) and four assists.

Pacioretty should get several scoring chances again in tonight’s Game 1. He’s been averaging 3.4 shots per game during the postseason and should be extra motivated against his former team. With Pacioretty netting three goals in his last four games and cashing this bet for us last Friday, I’m taking the anytime goal here once again at plus money.

Vegas Golden Knights On Puckline To Win Game 1 (+105)

Vegas is currently at -275 to win Game 1 on the moneyline, which might be too negative for some to stomach. The puckline, however, is still plus money for now.

While Montreal has won seven straight playoff games, Vegas is also on a roll with four consecutive wins. The Canadiens faced what became a very docile Maple Leafs offense and then a Jets offense that bogged down. Can Montreal keep games close against a Vegas team with bona fide scoring depth? Betting Vegas to win by two or more goals is our pick on Monday night.
