Vegas Golden Knights vs. Dallas Stars Game 7: Picks, Predictions, Odds and Player Props

The final game of round one in the 2023-24 Stanley Cup playoffs will take place on Sunday evening, when the Vegas Golden Knights and Dallas Stars battle in Game 7 in Dallas.

There is a reason why this is the only first-round matchup still in progress, as it has arguably been the most entertaining and competitive of them all.

It has been back and forth, too. Vegas took the first two games on the road, Dallas won three in a row and then the Golden Knights stayed alive with a 2-0 home victory in Game 6 on Friday.

Three games have been decided by one goal – including one in overtime – and there has not been a single margin greater than two goals.

With Game 7 puck drop set for 7:30PM ET, it’s time to break down the betting odds and make our best bets.

Vegas Golden Knights vs Dallas Stars betting picks and predictions  

Vegas Golden Knights ML (+130)

Dallas is the higher-seeded team and therefore playing at home and favored to win, but there is enticing value on Vegas at plus money.

The Golden Knights boast one of the deepest rosters in the league with experienced veterans all over the place who know how to step up when it matters most, with stars who are showing up when it counts.

Among them are Jack Eichel, Jonathan Marchessault, William Karlsson and Mark Stone. Perhaps even more importantly, they have Aiden Hill in net.

Hill led Vegas to the Stanley Cup in 2023-24 and he was solid in Game 5 and Game 6 of this series, boasting a .938 save percentage and a 1.52 goals-against average.

The Golden Knights have momentum on their side following Friday’s 2-0 shutout and they proved in the first two games that they have no trouble playing on the road. Don’t be surprised if Vegas once again silences the Dallas crowd – this time for good.

Under 5.5 Total Goals (-134)

The under has hit in four of six games throughout this series. That should not come as any surprise, as these are two bruising, hard-nosed teams that feature incredible goaltending and play defense at a high level.

The Golden Knights and Stars are both giving up just 2.17 goals per game in this series, which is tied for the fourth fewest so far in the NHL playoffs.

Dallas is countering Hill with goalie Jake Oettinger. The 25-year-old is sporting a .921 save percentage and 2.10 goals-against average while playing in all six games so far. 

There is no reason to think the low-scoring trend will end in Game 7, which is certain to be a tight, physical and mistake-free affair. The under looks like the way to play this one.

Jonathan Marchessault Over 0.5 points (-125)

Jonathan Marchessault was kept off the score sheet in the past two outings, but he recorded a total of four points (two goals, two assists) during the first four games of the series.

The 33-year-old is coming off a stellar regular season in which he produced 69 points (42 goals, 27 assists) in a full 82 games.

It doesn’t take a math major to figure out that Marchessault gets at least one point more often than not.

The veteran winger has been known to step up on the biggest stages in hockey, too. In the Stanley Cup Finals last season (in which Vegas erased the Florida Panthers in just five games), Marchessault scored four goals and added four helpers.

In the Western Conference Finals against the Dallas Stars, he had four goals and three assists. Twice in the second round against the Edmonton Oilers he delivered multi-goal performances – including a hat trick.
