Golden Knights vs Stars Prediction

For a moneyline bet, we have the Stars as the likely winner. However, with the current odds at -175, I’d suggest considering a puck line bet, as our predictions have the Stars winning by more than one goal.

For a puck line pick, we are going with the Stars to win and cover. Look for the Stars to win this one by multiple goals over the Golden Knights.

If you’re looking at the over/under line set at 6 goals, our prediction is that this game will exceed that mark, and we strongly advise placing a bet on the over.
