At the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook, Las Vegas is a -225 favorite to win the Western Conference and the +170 favorite to win the Stanley Cup.  

There’s no such thing as a meaningless empy-netter. Jonathan Marchessault’s goal with less than three seconds left secured a victory for over bettors (the total was 5.5) and -1.5 puckline bettors. The series resumes on Friday, May 18.  This with the Golden Knights opening as -125 favorites to take a 3-1 series lead.
