Can the Stars ignore the bright lights vs Vegas?

The Dallas Stars are in Vegas to face the Golden Knights tonight and will be in tough to get a win in Sin City. Dallas has struggled on the road at 3-9 SU and now faces a Vegas team that owns the best home record in the NHL at 9-1 SU and ATS. The Knights opened as slight favorites to get the W.

SHARK BITES
  • The total has gone OVER in five of the Stars’ last seven games.
  • The Golden Knights are 10-1 ATS in their last 11 games.
  • The Stars are 9-2 SU in their last 11 games against West Pacific teams.

If this game was in Dallas, bettors would be all over the Stars. Jamie Benn and company have won three of their last four and are starting to climb back into the playoff picture. Their road record, though, is atrocious and although goaltender Ben Bishop is expected to start tonight, his presence alone may not be enough. The Stars allow over three goals per game on the road this season. Might be best to fade Dallas in this one.

The expansion Knights are continuing to prove experts (and myself) wrong with their stellar play this season. Vegas sits in second place in the Western Conference and no expansion team has had a winning record in its inaugural season, let alone made the playoffs (the Hartford Whalers in 1979 were the last team to do it). The Knights also beat the Stars in the opening game of the season. Both their moneyline and -1.5 puckline should be seriously considered by bettors.
