Betting on the Vegas Golden Knights' home opener on Tuesday was available at all Nevada sports books and through mobile apps at the arena, reports indicate.
The Golden Knights soundly whipped the Arizona Coyotes 5-2 at T-Mobile Arena as -125 favorites with an over/under total of 5 ½. Vegas opened as a -110 favorite in the first true home game for a major professional franchise in Nevada. There were no reports of the sky falling or the sun failing to rise because legal, government-supervised wagering was conducted on a regular-season professional sports contest in Nevada.
The NHL ultimately, after early indications that it would request some sort of wagering prohibition, did not to request any betting modifications with Nevada Gaming Control Board.
Sports book operators have been reporting brisk business on the Golden Knights as the fledgling squad began the NHL season with a 3-0 record. The Golden Knights next face the Detroit Red Wings Friday with the puck scheduled to drop at 7:30 pm local time.
