The Vegas Golden Knights and the Dallas Stars meet in game three of their best-of-seven Western Conference final series in NHL action from the American Airlines Center on Tuesday night. Let’s dive into the odds, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.
Dallas is a -140 home favorite while Vegas is a +120 road underdog. The total for this game is set at 5.5 goals.
Vegas’ 3-2 OT win on Sunday made it back-to-back wins for the Golden Knights in this head-to-head matchup.
Vegas is 5-1 in their last 6 road games and 26-9 in their last 35 games overall while the under is 7-1-1 in their last 9 conference finals games. Dallas is 5-1 in their last 6 home games and 1-6 in their last 7 games against a team with a winning percentage above .600 while the over is 7-2-1 in their last 10 games overall.
I’m backing the Golden Knights here. I just need to see it before I can believe it from the Stars, as Vegas has simply found a way in the first two games of this series and the Golden Knights have actually been a far better team on the road this season, so if they can win twice at home, I think they’re more than capable of getting a win here. Give me Vegas.
