The Dallas Stars and Vegas Golden Knights face off on Tuesday in an NHL showdown at T-Mobile Arena. 

Golden Knights Have Been Impressive

The Golden Knights have been quite impressive to start the season winning all three of the games so far this year. Each of the first tree games they have won 4-1. The offense might get the attention but what the defense has done so far this season has really opened up some eyes. On Saturday they faced off against the Anaheim Ducks, and they didn’t give up a goal until the third period. Chandler Stephenson finished with one goal and two assists. Jack Eichel also finished with a goal and an assist. Adin Hall was in goal and he saved 22 of the 23 shots that he faced. 

Golden Knights Betting Trends

  • The Golden Knights have won each of their last 10 games as favorites following a win.
  • The road team has covered the puck line in each of the last nine games between the Stars and Golden Knights.
  • The 'Over 1.5 Goals Period 1' market has hit in nine of the Golden Knights' last 10 games following a win.
  • The Golden Knights have won the third period in each of their last six games at T-Mobile Arena following a win.

Stars Gear Up for Second Game

The Stars have only played one game so far this season and they were able to secure the 2-1 victory over the St. Louis Blues. The offense wasn’t all that impressive against the Blues and they lost 2-1 in a shootout. Jamie Benn finished with one goal and four shots on goal. Jake Oettinger stopped 23 of the 24 shots that he faced. Even though they won, the offense is going to need to be better here. If the offense performs like they did in the last game, they are going to lose this game. 

Stars Betting Trends

  • The Stars have won seven of their last 10 games as underdogs against the Golden Knights.
  • The underdogs have covered the puck line in each of the Stars' last nine games.
  • The 'Over 1.5 Goals Period 1' market has hit in each of the Stars' last five games against Pacific Division opponents.
  • The Stars have won the second period in each of their last five night games after coming off a shootout.

Shane’s Free Pick

This is going to be an easy victory for the Golden Knights. The defense has been strong so far this season for the Stars and they are going to find success again here. The Stars offense struggled to score in their first game and they won’t score more than a goal here. Back the Golden Knights on the money line.
