Vegas Golden Knights vs. Dallas Stars Best Bet: Golden Knights Moneyline

There’s some great value on the Vegas Golden Knights tonight. The team is right around +125 to win the game and go up 3-0 (just like every other Conference series in professional sports this year), with the pricing likely due to the fact that the team is on the road with the Dallas Stars’ backs against the wall.

That said, Vegas has been excellent on the road this year, going 26-7-8 in the regular season and 4-1 in the postseason thus far. They’re getting consistent production from all their top skaters in the playoffs, with Jack Eichel and Mark Stone leading the team with 15 points while William Karlsson and Chandler Stephenson both have seven goals.

It’s tough to back the Stars with Jake Oettinger in net right now. Oettinger was one of the best goalies throughout the regular season, but, as has been mentioned in this column before, he hasn’t been himself in the postseason this year. The young netminder has a .901 SV% and a 2.84 GAA in the playoffs this year, and a 0.885 SV% and 3.5 GAA in this series. With so many dangerous scorers on the ice for Vegas and a Dallas defense that’s ice cold right now, it’s an excellent time to grab the value with the Golden Knights’ moneyline.
