Stars vs. Golden Knight’s Saturday Night Live Betting Preview – 02/25/23

As the Dallas Stars prepare to take on the Vegas Golden Knights, the market conditions are in favor of the home team. Vegas Golden Knights are the favorites with a money line of -120 and the over/under set at 5.5. The Stars come into this game with a bearish PVI rating, having lost their last five games and suffering a home favorite defeat to the Chicago Blackhawks in their most recent match.

The Stars' recent struggles are reflected in their situational analysis, where they have scored just eight goals in their last five games and have lost to the puck line in their last 3 games. Additionally, they have lost their last two games at home, and are now on the road vs. the Golden Knights before coming back home to face the struggling Canucks. The under is 9-1-0 in the Stars' last ten games, so if you are betting the total, you may want to lean towards the under if this trend continues.

On the other hand, the Vegas Golden Knights are in a better situation. They are coming off a home-favorite win against the Calgary Flames, and their situational analysis shows that they are 18-13 SU at home this season. They have also won 12 of 14 games as a home team favorite against a Western Conference opponent after a division game in which they allowed three or fewer goals.

In terms of recent form, the Golden Knights have scored eleven goals in their last three games, all of which have been one-goal games. They have lost against the puck line in their last two games, but they are still favored to win this game.

Looking at the head-to-head matchup, the Golden Knights have lost five of their last six games against the Stars, including a 4-0 loss in their most recent meeting. The Stars have struggled in the past ten games against the puck line, losing in eight of the ten games, while the Golden Knights have chances of winning this game at 60.42% on the Raymond Report.

In conclusion, the betting preview suggests that the Vegas Golden Knights are the team to back in this game. The Stars are struggling on both sides of the puck and have lost their last five games, while the Golden Knights are coming off a character win over the Flames and are 4-0 SU at home in the month of February this season. However, with the under being a strong trend in the Stars' recent games, it may be worth considering the under 5.5 in this game as well.
