Dallas Stars at Vegas Golden Knights CashBet Wagering Analysis

On this occasion, Vegas will draw most of the best sportsbook online betting action.  Sin City immediately took to the Golden Knights at their 2017 berth, and that has caused a virtual local tax on the board for Vegas games.  Local action remains heavy on the Golden Knights.  Problematic is that Vegas is not providing gamblers with reliable value.  By contrast, Dallas combines good price and ability as a quality road team.  And that is where sharps are going to flock.

Shooting Stars Find the Net

Overall, Dallas brings a betting on NHL record of 12-7-2.  On the road, the Stars are 4-5-1.  While in their most recent ten games, the Stars are 8-2.  Dallas is riding a 6-game winning streak.  NHL metrics show the Stars ranked 20th for goal scoring and 4th for power-play efficiency.  And then Dallas Ranks 11th for goals against and 20th for penalty killing.

Following an unimpressive first month, coach Rick Bowness was said to be on the hot seat in Big D.  But Bowness was determined to address his club’s problems and has.  Dallas has long been considered an underachiever on the offensive end of the ice.  Finally, they are getting some of the production that gamblers and fans have long expected.

Namely, veteran Joe Pavelski is leading the Stars’ resurgence.  Pavelski has seven goals with 12 assists for a team-high 19 points.  Also, Pavelski brings a +7 to the ice.  Left-wing Roope Hintz has a team-high ten goals on the season.

Not So Golden Knights

In sum, Vegas brings a pro hockey betting record of 13-10.  The Golden Knights are 6-4 in their most recent ten games.  NHL metrics show Vegas ranked 10th for goal scoring, 25th for power-play efficiency, 23rd for goals against, and 15th for penalty killing.

Thus far, Robin Lehner has struggled as the pure number one goaltender.  Lehner has a save percentage of .909 with a 3.08 goals-against average.  Meanwhile, back Laurent Brossoit has impressed with a .921 save percentage and 2.46 goals-against average.

Last year Lehner and Marc Andre Fleury made for an impressive tandem.  Both fed off each other and were able to stay fresh.  Lehner has always been questioned as a pure number one goalie.  Now we see why.

Dallas Stars at Vegas Golden Knights Against the Spread

In recent away games, Dallas is 3-6 and 4-1 over/under the hockey betting total.

Vegas is 6-2 and 2-4-1 over/under the total in recent home games.

In this situation, the Stars combine excellent recent form, ability, and good price.  Vegas continues to suffer from erratic goaltending.  As was previously noted, the Golden Knight power play is also lacking.  Dallas makes for a solid NHL gambling play in this one.
