Stars vs Golden Knights Prediction

When making a moneyline pick, my choice is the Stars to come out with a win against the Golden Knights while playing on the road. Considering the moneyline odds at -116, I’m placing my bet on the Stars to win outright.

If you’re looking for a puck line bet, I’d suggest going with the Golden Knights to cover. Even in the event of a Stars victory, this game is expected to be closely fought, and the Golden Knights should cover the puck line.

When considering the over/under line, which is currently at 6 goals, we believe that this game will go over that threshold, and we recommend wagering on the over.
