NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs – Western Conference Finals – Game 2

  • Dallas Stars +135
  • Vegas Golden Knights -155
  • Over/Under 5.5

Many hockey fans have been surprised by the playstyle of the Stars in the playoffs. Throughout the regular season, Dallas played a very slow and methodical brand of hockey that emphasized defense.

The Stars led the Western Conference in Goals Against per 60 minutes regular season and would win games from that side of the floor instead of scoring goals themselves.

That has all changed in the playoffs, as the Stars are now playing an extremely fast-paced and high-octane style that has led them to the Western Conference Finals.

In Game 1, Dallas came out firing, putting in 35 chances to 19 from Vegas. In the end, Dallas was able to inch ahead with a 1-0 victory.

Dallas played their typical strong defense, shutting out Vegas and escaping with the lone goal scored in the match.

The best player on the ice was undoubtedly Anton Khudobin, whose heroics between the posts kept Vegas scoreless.

Vegas still might be the better team in full 5-on-5 play, but the Stars aren’t going down with a full-fledged fight, as they showed in Game 1.

Those looking to bet on the NHL game should consider the value of both teams.

The Stars are getting underdog odds between +130 and +140 depending on the sportsbook you’re on. Those looking to profit the most from this matchup should value the Stars as the dog.

While Vegas is the better team in terms of talent, they were simply shut down in Game 1 and could easily struggle to find goals again.

With that in mind, the best value is to go with the underdog to take a surprise 2-0 lead.
