Stanley Cup Final Game 3 - Betting picks for Golden Knights-Panthers - ESPN

2023-06-08 14:42:42  • 4 mins

The Vegas Golden Knights hold a 2-0 Stanley Cup Final lead over the Florida Panthers, winning the first two games of the series at home. Which is not ideal news for Thursday night's home team.

According to ESPN Stats & Info, teams with a 2-0 series lead in a best-of-seven Stanley Cup Final go on to hoist the Cup 90.6% of the time (48-5). That percentage jumps to 92.7% for teams that win their first two games at home (38-3). What's in store for Game 3? Here are some wagers we have our eye on:

Stanley Cup Final Game 3: Vegas Golden Knights at Florida Panthers

Puck line: Florida -1.5

Money line: Vegas (+100), Florida (-120)

Total: 6

Wyshynski: Golden Knights Money Line (+100) These odds have dropped from the opening line, I snuck in at +105. The fact that Vegas is even money in a must-win Game 3 for the Panthers is a snapshot of where this series sits: One team peaking at the right time, playing outstanding defensively and unflappably in the face of their opponents' aggression. And the other team is the Panthers.
