Flames vs. Golden Knights Sharp Action, Big Money Pick
The sharps and wise guys absolutely love the under on this one. You can lock down 5.5 at about even money at most major American sportsbooks.
A minority of bets (42%) have been made on the under, but the vast majority of money (93%) is on the game to score fewer than 5.5 goals. That means a small group of bettors are wagering big on the under.
PRO Report Pick: Under 5.5 goals (-104)
