Sharps on Jets, betting public on Knights in Game 4

It’s another Pros vs. Joes showdown at Las Vegas sports books in Game 4 of the NHL Western Conference Final on Friday night at T-Mobile Arena.

The so-called sharp bettors are wagering on the Winnipeg Jets for the second consecutive game as small underdogs, while the betting public is again backing the Golden Knights, who opened as high as minus 135 favorites but were down to as low as minus 115 on Friday afternoon at the Westgate sports book.

The Knights, leading the series 2-1, are minus 120 favorites at Boyd Gaming, Caesars Palace, Wynn Las Vegas and the Golden Nugget sports books.

“It seems like Winnipeg is the sharp play,” Caesars Palace oddsmaker Jeff Davis said. “We have noticeably more money on Winnipeg (in Game 4) than for most Knights games. The money is 1½-to-1 in favor of Winnipeg, but there’s a 2-to-1 ticket count on the Knights.”

The ticket count is 5-1 in favor of the Knights at Boyd Gaming

“All the early money was on the Knights both in terms of dollars as well as the number of tickets,” Boyd Gaming sports book director Bob Scucci said. “The price got driven up 20 cents higher than where it would normally be. If the team wasn’t in Las Vegas, the price would be about (minus) 115. But it was inflated based on all of those tickets.

“We went as high as (minus) 135 on Vegas, and that’s when we started getting some sophisticated play on Winnipeg, which drove the line back down to (minus) 120. They know there’s an inflated price here. It should be close to pick’em.”

The Knights are getting up to plus 230 on the puck line (minus 1½).

“We haven’t taken a single Winnipeg straight puck line bet,” Davis said.

The total is 5½ (Over minus 115).

“Everyone’s betting the over,” Scucci said.

Jonathan Marchessault’s empty-net goal with 2.7 seconds left in Game 3 on Wednesday night covered the puck line and pushed the game over the total in the Knights’ 4-2 win.

“It was just a dagger for us,” Scucci said. “But as a Vegas fan, you want to see that insurance.”

The Jets applied plenty of pressure in the third period, but Knights goalie Marc-Andre Fleury came up with several spectacular saves to preserve the lead.

“It was a miracle they didn’t score,” Scucci said. “When you look at the way the three games have panned out, they’re two great teams and Winnipeg has shown signs of being the dominant team.

“You take that third period, for example, and you can certainly make a case for the Jets being the faster, better team.”
