The Vegas Golden Knights (24-10-2) play the first half of a two-game road set against the St. Louis Blues (16-15-6) Monday with an 8 p.m. ET puck drop at Enterprise Center. Below, we analyze the Golden Knights-Blues odds and lines, with NHL picks and predictions.
The Golden Knights are in a bit of a nosedive, dropping three straight outings all as favorites. Vegas has had a power outage on offense with a total of just 5 goals scored while coughing up 9 goals during the slide. Each game was at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. The Golden Knights are also on a 4-1 Under run across their past five games.

Golden Knights 3, Blues 2
Money line (ML)

Against the spread (ATS)
The Blues +1.5 (-250) would be the lean here on home ice, as neither side is paying very well lately, but you cannot risk two and a half times your potential return.
The best move is to PASS.
UNDER 5.5 (-105) is the lean here until these teams rediscover their offense.
The Blues have hit the Under in five straight outings, while going 7-2-1 against the number across their past 10 games. The Under is 4-1 across the past five for the Knights, too.
