The House Always Wins - Double Down on Vegas

Dallas found a way to extend the series thanks to the efforts of its stars, no pun intended. But heading back to Vegas for Game 5, the NHL lines favor Vegas for good reason. The Knights will want to finish off the Stars on their home ice and prepare for Florida. Using the NHL props, we can bet how this game will play out.

Knights Charge Ahead

Vegas is better at scoring goals. Sure, Jason Robertson has been on fire for Dallas. But he’s one man against a handful of scorers on Vegas’ side. The Knights have been the first team to score two goals in three of the four games in this series. This team is shooting at 11.4% 5-on-5, which leads the postseason.

Jake Oettinger may have rediscovered his top form for Dallas. But Vegas will generate plenty of scoring chances and find a way to break him again. The NHL odds have it at a pick’em price for Vegas to be the first to score two goals. Bet online on this prop.

Pick: Race To 2 Goals – Golden Knights -115

Coming Through in the Clutch

Whether it’s Joe Pavelski for Dallas or William Karlsson for Vegas, there may be plenty of scoring in the third period. Only one player scored in the last three third periods. But Game 1 featured four goals in the third alone. Dallas also has a habit of giving up third-period goals. It gives up an average of one per road game.

As for Vegas, it averages 1.14 goals per third period. That’s its most when compared to the first (0.96) and second (1.02). Of course, you take into the empty-net goals here. With Vegas likely leading Dallas into the third, count on them to score the series’ first empty-netter and/or for Dallas to score with a 6-on-5 when they pull the goal. A bold NHL pick? Hardly if the line says so.

Pick: Highest Scoring Period – 3rd Period +175

Jack O Lantern

You would not guess it based on his “modest” stats in this series, but Jack Eichel has been one of Vegas’ best players. He’s helped generate some memorable goals but has yet to find the back of the net himself. Well, patience can pay dividends. Eichel has 14 shots on goal and continues to spend time on the top power play (PP) unit.

The online sports betting lines keep touting him with short odds to score for good reason. He’s not just popular – a darling of the NHL news – but he’s bout to get his due whether it’s via the PP, an empty net, or a penalty shot. Eichel will light the lantern.

Pick: Anytime Goalscorer – Jack Eichel +125

Live Betting Pick

Double down on Vegas. The Stars may have stunned Vegas in Game 4, but it had everything align for them. All their “big guns” delivered while Oettinger recaptured his elite form. The chances of all of this happening again for a second straight game are worth betting against.

Vegas should be the rightful pick here even if the Knights get behind early. The Knights, as we’ve mentioned over and over, are better at finding ways to score. Several key players on this team like Karlsson and Jonathan Marchessault have been here since Day 1. They won’t be denied a chance at redemption.

Pick: Vegas Golden Knights ML
