Max Pacioretty, Vegas Golden Knights vs. Colorado Avalanche

Anytime goal scorer (+175)

The Vegas Golden Knights host the Colorado Avalanche on Friday night as the series shifts to Las Vegas. Vegas winger Max Pacioretty has been solid so far in the playoffs, tallying a goal and two assists in three games since coming back from injury.

Pacioretty should get some more chances in Game 3, The winger had four shots on goal in Game 2 along with three scoring chances. He looks to be back in full game shape and the thumb is causing no issues. Pacioretty’s shot is as crisp as ever along with his release. He expects to be a good bet to score against Colorado tonight.

Vegas Golden Knights To Win Game 3 (Even)

The number could swing to plus-money on Friday night, so look out. Vegas was able to dominate vast stretches of Game 2 and showed a much better effort compared to Game 1. It can be argued the Golden Knights, without Ryan Reaves, stuck to playing hockey. They still lost in overtime but fired 41 shots on Philipp Grubauer.

Down 0-2 at home, the Golden Knights have to win Game 3. The series expects to be a long one as Vegas has the firepower to keep up with Colorado. With Vegas at even money or potentially better, they are the moneyline choice to take on Friday night.
