Stars Vs. Golden Knights Best Bet: NHL Playoff Game 1 Predictions

Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals starts tonight at 8:00 EST between the Stars and Golden Knights. The Stars come in as small road underdogs and a total of 5.5 is set. The Over on the 5.5 total is our NHL best bet for tonight’s game.

Dallas Stars vs. Vegas Golden Knights Best Bet (Game 1)

Bettors should expect some fireworks to start out this series. Two of the highest-scoring teams in the postseason will face off tonight with the Golden Knights (3.73 goals per game) hosting the Stars (3.62 goals per game). Dallas finally got goalie Jake Oettinger back to form with a near-shutout against the Seattle Kraken in Game 7, but bettors should still be skeptical about how he’ll perform in this round. Throughout the second round of the postseason, Oettinger allowed 3.57 goals per game, and has an overall save percentage of .903 in the playoffs this year. Adin Hill will be between the pipes for Vegas, but he’s been a mixed bag, allowing three goals in his postseason starts with a 0.91 save percentage.

There’s plenty of (no pun intended) starpower on the ice tonight, with Roope Hintz (9 postseason goals) and Joe Pavelski (8 postseason goals) for Dallas along with Jack Eichel and Chandler Stephenson (6 postseason goals each) for Vegas. The Stars have also been on quite the over run, with six of their last seven games going over the total. Ultimately, it’s difficult to pick a clear winner in this game, so the smart play is to bet the over as the exciting Western Conference Finals get going.
