Dallas Stars vs. Vegas Golden Knights Game 6: Picks, Predictions, Odds and Player Props

The Vegas Golden Knights are one loss away from elimination as they host the Dallas Stars for Game 6 with their Stanley Cup defense in the balance. 

After back-to-back losses, the defending Stanley Cup-champion Vegas Golden Knights made a switch in net by starting goaltender Adin Hill last time. 

However, the change did not work out, sending them back to Sin City on the brink of elimination by the hand of the Dallas Stars. Game 6 takes place tonight, so let’s get into our best bets.

Dallas Stars vs. Vegas Golden Knights betting picks and predictions

Under 5.5 goals (+100)

Believe it or not, the Stars victory in Game 5 was the first win in this series by the home team. So, with the series back in Vegas, this is an opportunity for the defending champs to do the same and force a Game 7. 

While we’d give them the slight edge, rather than sweating out a winner of a game that is set as a pick ‘em, we’re going to focus on the Total.

Dallas’ Game 5 win was also the first time in franchise history that they were able to take a 3-2 series lead after going down 2-0. That has primarily been for two reasons, the first of which is the play of goaltender Jake Oettinger.

He’s been among the Vezina Trophy favorites all year for good reason, and he’s been able to return to that form after the first two games of the series. Even in those losses, Vegas scored over three goals just once, and the one time they hit exactly three was thanks to an empty-netter.

Although the Golden Knights swapping to Adin Hill didn’t translate to a win on Wednesday night, it was still another game that stayed under the total with just five goals scored.

Along with the Knights scoring just two goals in each of the other two games in Vegas, we’re predicting another low-scoring game tonight.

Jason Robertson over 2.5 shots on goal (-150)

The other primary reason for the Stars recent success and ability to turn this series around is the play of their young studs. Wyatt Johnston has come on extremely strong, but the far more well-known star in Dallas is Jason Robertson.

He’s one of the future faces of the NHL, and we’re getting some significant value when it comes to his shots on goal prop. It also works out in terms of pairing it with a bet on a low-scoring game, as we aren’t concerned with him finding the back of the net.

However, it is worth noting that the youngster has 11 career playoff goals, and eight of them have come against Vegas. Regardless, just a goal won’t hurt us, and his shots on goal prop was set at 3.5 much of last season.

While the volume was down overall this year, Robertson has not been shy about taking his chances against the Golden Knights. 

In the two most recent regular season games against Vegas, Robertson recorded three and five shots on goal. That translated to this playoff series, as he’s recorded three or more shots in four of the five games thus far.

Therefore, our favorite player prop pick is for that trend to continue.
