Odds Analysis

On this occasion, Vegas will draw most of the 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.

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.

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.
