    Moneyline : The line is not too bad, as Vegas is favored at -139. Again, the Golden Knights and the Kings both played last night. The key factor is how Quick will play since he was rested last night against the Nashville Predators. The KINGS are getting +115 on the moneyline. This may be a contrarian pick but a small bet on the Kings is the play for Sunday.

    Spread : The spread may be a little tougher to risk. With the variance involved, it is okay to avoid the puck line.

    Over/under : Take the OVER(5.5, -150) if pushed as the number should be higher based on projections of 6-6.5 combined goals.
