The Golden Knights are 6-2 in their last 8 road games and 27-11 in their last 38 overall. The Stars are 4-1 in their last 5 home games and 4-1 in their last 5 Monday games. The under is 4-1 in Golden Knights last 5 road games. The under is 4-1 in Stars last 5 overall. The Golden Knights are 2-5 in the last 7 meetings in Dallas. The favorite is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings. The home team is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.
Right when it looked like the Vegas Golden Knights had complete control of the series, the Dallas Stars show some fight and now have a good chance to force this thing to a game 7. The Stars outplayed the Golden Knights on the road in game 5, a clean game where there was just one penalty for the entire contest. The Stars have played their best at home all year, and I'd honestly need more bang for my buck if siding with Vegas. I'll lay the cheap price with the home team.
