Vegas Golden Knights vs. Nashville Predators
On Tuesday, two of the best teams in the NHL square off inside T-Mobile Arena. The Las Vegas Golden Knights are looking to capture their third straight victory and fifth overall in the season. In order to do so, they’ll need to beat one of the most successful teams in franchise history.
Fortunately for Golden Knights fans, Nashville isn’t coming into this game as the betting favorites. They’ve struggled for much of the season and hold just a 3-2 record heading into Tuesday’s game. Many analysts predict the Golden Knights secure an easy victory.
The oddsmakers seem to agree. Mybookie.ag currently lists the Predators’ odds to win at just +120. The Golden Knights enter with odds of -140. If you’re in Las Vegas, feel free to head over to any of the world-class sportsbooks spread around the city to place your wagers on the game’s outcome!

According to many individuals, this is one of the most impressive art exhibits in recent Las Vegas history.
Burton spent a significant portion of his childhood in Las Vegas and the city is heavily referenced in many of his movies. This exhibit, called Lost Vegas, features many of his most famous pieces of art taken from different movies.
The Neon Museum is located on North Las Vegas Boulevard, not far from the world-famous Fremont Street. Tuesday marks the exhibit’s grand opening. Ticket prices start at around $25. Feel free to stop by!
