- Title : Who will win the first outdoor game of the season?
All good things don't come in threes, all good things happen at Lake Tahoe, this beautiful lake in Nevada. At least in the NHL, where the first outdoor game of this season takes place on Saturday evening between the Colorado Avalanche and the Vegas Golden Knights.
Although Las Vegas is much closer to the venue, the Avalanche are officially considered the home team, which means we can put the home advantage aside. It is also only the third game in Colorado after their ten-day quarantine.
Both other games after their break also took place against the Golden Knights - with varying degrees of success. The Avs lost the first duel and narrowly won the second. Purely in terms of the course of the game, however, they were slightly inferior in both games.
For all of these reasons, the very high odds on Vegas are surprising as we don't see them as the underdogs. For Avalanche vs. Golden Knights, our forecast is a close match with slight advantages for the knights from Vegas who are better in rhythm.
|Prediction||Vegas Golden Knights to win|
