Our Free NHL Pick for Vegas Golden Knights vs Minnesota Wild

We like the over in this game. We think both teams will score the puck rather well and the game will be tied up at 3 at some point needing the winning goal to push the score over the projected total. Our best bet is the Over 5.5. Final score prediction, the Vegas Golden Knights win, covers the spread and the total goes over 5-3.
