A jam-packed Tuesday in the NHL features a huge Pacific Division matchup between the Vegas Golden Knights (40-29-4) and Vancouver Canucks (35-28-10). Puck drop is slated for 10pm ET on April 12th at Rogers Arena.
The Golden Knights are listed as -137 road favorites in the Tuesday NHL odds. The game total is set at 6 as both teams fight for their playoff lives.

Knights vs Canucks Odds
|Game Time||Team||Puck Line||Total||Moneyline|
|Tuesday, Apr. 12||Vegas Golden Knights||-1.5 (+180)||O 6 (-108)||-137|
|10pm ET||Vancouver Canucks||+1.5 (-225)||U 6 (-113)||+114|
Odds as of April 11th at Caesars Sportsbook.
The Golden Knights are listed at +180 odds on the puckline, while the Canucks are -225 to keep the game within two goals. Vegas’ -137 moneyline price means they have 55% implied probability to win.
The Golden Knights and Canucks both sit as very fringe contenders in the 2022 Stanley Cup odds as they battle for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference.
Knights Favorites in Tuesday NHL Odds
The Golden Knights are favored in the Tuesday NHL odds as they battle to keep their playoff chances alive. The Golden Knights currently sit one point back of the Dallas Stars for the second wildcard spot in the Western Conference.
Vegas has been playing some strong hockey of late, winning six of their past seven contests. The Knights could get captain Mark Stone back from injury for Tuesday’s game vs Vancouver. The Vegas captain has been sidelined since April 8th with multiple injuries.

While Stone is questionable for Tuesday, Vegas did get Max Pacioretty back from injury against Arizona on Tuesday. The sniper slotted in on the third line and scored a goal in a 6-1 Vegas victory. Pacioretty had missed the past 12 games with an undisclosed injury.
The Knights are expected to turn to Robin Lehner in goal against the Canucks on Tuesday. The Swedish netminder has had his fair share of struggles this season, posting a 23-16-1 record with a .909 save percentage and 2.76 GAA.

Canucks Betting Outlook
Vancouver is listed as +114 home underdogs versus Vegas in the Tuesday NHL odds, meaning they have 45% implied probability to get the victory. The Canucks have won three straight games to inch within six points of Dallas for the final wildcard spot.
The Canucks’ home underdog price is interesting considering they beat Vegas 5-1 at T-Mobile Arena less than a week ago. The blowout victory marked just the first time in history, however, that the Canucks beat the Knights in regulation during the regular season.
Much like the Golden Knights, the Canucks have been dealing with some significant injury concerns. Forwards Brock Boeser (arm), Nils Hoglander (groin) and Tanner Pearson (upper body) have all been ruled out of Tuesday’s clash with Vegas.
The Canucks will be turning in goal to Thatcher Demko, who is 30-20-6 with a .917 save percentage and 2.64 GAA. Demko’s strong play gives Vancouver a clear goalie edge in the Tuesday NHL odds.
Knights vs Canucks Same Game Parlay Betting
If you’re looking to wager on Knights vs Canucks, you can increase your potential payout by placing a correlated parlay bet. For example, if you think the Canucks will win a high-scoring game, you can combine the Canucks’ moneyline and the over into one bet for a bigger payout.
The downside of same game parlay betting is that every bet needs to hit in order for you to win money. It’s still useful if you’re confident in multiple aspects of the game. Another way to increase the potential payout is by adding a bet on a certain player to score.

Elias Pettersson is heating up with five goals in his past five games. If the Canucks get a big win, there’s a good chance Pettersson will get on the scoresheet. Combining the Canucks’ moneyline with Pettersson anytime goalscorer pays out nicely at Caesars Sportsbook.

Knights vs Canucks Pick & Prediction
Knights vs Canucks has historically been a one-sided rivalry until Vancouver proved last week they can beat this Vegas team in convincing fashion. In the other meeting this calendar year, the Canucks took the Knights to overtime.

If the Canucks get another victory, it’s likely going to be because of Demko. Over the past month, Vancouver is allowing the fourth-highest number of high-danger chances in the NHL.
Here are some betting trends to note for Knights vs Canucks:
- Golden Knights are 6-1 in their last 7 games as a favorite
- Canucks are 2-7 in their last 9 games as a home underdog
- Under is 6-2-2 in Canucks last 10 overall
Demko has frustrated the Knights in the past, but Vegas is getting healthier with the return of Pacioretty and Stone. The Canucks are only 20th in NHL goal scoring, however, setting up a lower-scoring game if Demko stands tall once again.
The under is the best way to wager on Knights vs Canucks in the Tuesday NHL odds. This should be a tightly played defensive battle due to the playoff implications at stake. Look for Demko to steal the show and give his team a fighting chance versus the Knights.
Pick: Under 6 (-113)
