Stars vs Golden Knights Prediction

For a moneyline pick, I’m taking the Golden Knights to pick up on a win over the Stars at home. With the moneyline sitting at -106, I’ll be locking in a bet on the Golden Knights straight-up.

Our projections have the Golden Knights pulling out a win as the underdog. But if you’re not as bullish as we are on the Golden Knights, we’d recommend at least getting a bet down on them to cover the puck line.

For those looking at the over/under line set at 5.5 goals, our expectation is that this game will surpass that mark, and we suggest making a bet on the over.
