The Dallas Stars and the Vegas Golden Knights meet in game five of their Western Conference finals series from T-Mobile Arena in NHL action on Saturday. Let’s dive into the odds, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.
Vegas is listed as a -145 home favorite while Dallas is a +125 road underdog. The total for this game is set at 5.5 goals.
Dallas’ 3-2 overtime win in game four snapped a three-game win streak for Vegas in this head-to-head matchup.
Dallas is 1-4 in their last 5 games overall and 1-4 in their last 5 road games while the under is 9-1-2 in their last 12 conference finals games. Vegas is 27-10 in their last 37 games overall and 23-9 in their last 32 home games while the over is 11-5 in their last 16 home games.
I’m rolling with the under here. A lot of the action in this series has been tight and low-scoring and in another high-pressure spot on both sides, I look for more of the same here as neither side will want to be the one to blink first and make the first mistake as this has been the kind of series where there could only be one mistake in a game and that proves to be the difference. Look for a war here and a first to 3 wins kind of game. Take the under.
