Team Outlook and Scouting Report

We have recently enhanced the site to feature Team Outlook and Scouting Reports that provide one of a kind insights into your favorite team's past, present and most importantly, future performance. Our Reports are updated daily in season and minimally weekly off-season and are geared towards fans who are analytical and invested ($) in their team's performance. For our latest power rankings, betting futures and the detailed Fantasy Player Scouting reports powered by our proprietary projection model check out the new Scout.

SEASON FORECASTS AND FUTURES PICKS

Their odds to win it all are 7/1, 12.5% (#2). They are not a good bet to win the championship. Their 7.5% chance is #4 in the league. In simulations, they win the West 17.7% of the time and are not a good value at 3/1, 25%. The Golden Knights are averaging 99.8 points per sim so we recommend betting them to come under 102.5. At -700 the Golden Knights are a good value to make the playoffs with a 91.1% chance. Their odds of winning their division are 1/1, 50%. They win the division in 30.9% of simulations. Their average wins per simulation puts them at #3 in the West.

REGULAR SEASON RECAP AND UPCOMING GAMES

Oddsmakers expected them to win 46.5 based on their money line game odds. Their 43-32-7 record last season failed to meet expectations. Putting a 100 units on them to win every game would have cost you -1070 units. They were not good on puck lines going 32-50 (-1008 loss). They went over 37 times and came in under 41 times. They are favored in their upcoming game vs the San Jose Sharks. The table below shows their upcoming games, their simulation based win percentage and their recent head to head record (WL, ATS, OU).

TEAM STATISTICAL STRENGTHS AND WEAKNESSES

Their record should be better. Since 10/2/2018 their average goal differential is +0.22 (includes playoff games) which ranks #12 in the league, but their rank based on points (per game) is #16. This is a relatively better home team than a road team. They are the #4 ranked team in goal differential in home games, vs #18 in road games.
