Randy’s Free Pick

The Dallas Stars are a worthy underdog given the way they’ve played this season, but I’d need more plus money to back them here. The Vegas Golden Knights are one of the more trustworthy home teams in the league, and they’re back to piling up the points in front of their fans. Dallas also has had issues winning in Vegas. The juice is reasonable. Give me the Golden Knights to get the job done.
