Vic Monte Sports – NHL Opening Night Pick

Seattle Kraken +138 @Vegas Golden Knights

Blog Picks (4-2-1)

Vegas partied hard all summer after winning the Stanley Cup, and now it’s time to buckle down. They’re kicking off the season against a division rival, and the odds are a bit on the high side. But keep this in your back pocket, Seattle might not be as sharp this season due to some shaky shooting stats. That said, don’t sleep on them – they’ve got a deep bench, and the return of Andre Burakovsky, their top goal-scorer before his injury, is a game-changer.

Vegas, on the other hand, might be riding a bit too high, especially with a banged-up defense. So, here’s the deal: it’s banner night at T-Mobile Arena, and we know that sometimes, the visiting team, like the Kraken in this case, can throw a wrench in the works. Seattle’s still got a score to settle after missing out on the playoffs last year, and they’ve got a stacked lineup with thirteen players who put up double-digit goals last season. My money’s on the Kraken for this one!
