One of many great things about the Super Bowl is all the cross-sport props the sportsbooks release. Let’s examine some Vegas Golden Knights NHL options vs. Eagles-Patriots.

How happy do you think the Las Vegas sportsbooks are to have a professional sports team in town? William Hill has released some props on what happens in Sunday afternoon’s Vegas Golden Knights at Washington Capitals game against results in Sunday evening’s Super Bowl LII between the Eagles and Patriots from U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis. Let’s break them down.

Golden Knights Goals (Even) vs. Patriots Touchdowns (-120)

As of this writing, Vegas has the NHL’s second-best offense at 3.39 goals per game – which is shocking when you consider all the castoffs on this roster. The Golden Knights hosted Metropolitan Division-leading Washington on Dec. 23 and won 3-0. The Capitals are middle-of-the-pack defensively this season in allowing 2.8 goals per game. No. 1 goalie Braden Holtby is having a good season but not quite at his level of the past three years. The Patriots go up against a Philadelphia defense that ranked No. 4 in the NFL this season in allowing 18.4 ppg. Philly has allowed just two touchdowns in these playoffs but also hasn’t faced Tom Brady.

Free Pick: Patriots TDsBest Lines Offered: William Hill

Marc-Andre Fleury Saves (-4.5) vs. Nick Foles Completions

Fleury, the most recognized player the Golden Knights selected in the expansion draft, is having a career season as he’s among the league leaders in goals-against average and save percentage. In that first meeting with Washington, he had 26 saves. He averages around 29 saves per game. Washington is last in the league in shot attempts at just south of 29 per game. Of course, Foles only took over as Philly’s starter late in a Week 14 game at the Rams. His season high in completions is 26, coming in the NFC title game vs. the Eagles.

Free Pick: Foles Completions

Jonathan Marchessault Shots (-120) vs. Chris Hogan Receptions (Even)

Marchessault, given away by the Florida Panthers, has been a Hart Trophy candidate in leading the Golden Knights in points by a wide margin. He also leads in shots, averaging about 3.5 per game. His season high is 10, coming Jan. 16 at Nashville. Hogan caught just 34 balls during the regular season for the Pats but was limited to nine games due to injury. He has totaled eight targets and three receptions in two playoff games.

Free Pick: Marchessault

Rob Gronkowski Catches (-130) vs. Total Sharks-Hurricanes Goals (-110)

We’ll change it up on this one from Bovada and on Sunday’s San Jose at Carolina matchup. Gronk is obviously Brady’s top target and will play Sunday after suffering a concussion in the AFC title game. Gronkowski averaged 5.0 receptions per game in the regular season with a high of nine (twice). He had six in the divisionsal round vs. the Titans but just one in the AFC title game vs. the Jags due to that concussion. San Jose hosted Carolina on Dec. 7 and won 5-4 in overtime. However, these are two below-average offensive teams with the Sharks ranking 17th in scoring and the Hurricanes 23rd. That game probably ends something like 3-2. Gronk can get six catches.
