The Vegas Golden Knights will face off against the Dallas Stars in a pivotal Game 5 in their first round playoff series in the Western Conference on May 1, 2024, at 7:30 pm ET. DraftKings Sportsbook initially pegs the Golden Knights as +136 underdogs and the Stars as -162 favorites, with these teams going into this contest with their series tied at 2-2. Current betting trends show 16% of moneyline bets placed on Vegas and 84% on Dallas. The over/under of 5.5 is garnering 79% of the bets on the over and 21% on the under. It's shaping up to be an exciting matchup between these two teams with a clear favorite in the eyes of the bettors.

This has been a bizarre series so far, with the road team winning all four games of the series to this point. Vegas came out and grabbed the first two games in Dallas, with the Stars returning the favor in Vegas for the next two. Now, the series shifts back to Dallas, but we think that the trend of road teams winning in this series will come to an end in this game.

Dallas has all the momentum in this series as they head home to host Game 5 against the Golden Knights. They have won the last two games of this series and have done so in impressive fashion. Dallas has done a great job of controlling the puck in the offensive zone and not allowing Vegas to be too aggressive and put pressure on the less-than-stellar goaltending of the Stars. Look for that to continue in this game and for the Stars to come out of this one with a 3-2 series lead.
