Things started off great for Vegas in their first round series with the Stars, picking up 4-3 and 3-1 victories on the road in Dallas to take a 2-0 lead. All that momentum is way back in the rear view now though, as three straight losses have the Golden Knights on the verge of elimination on Friday night.

Before Betting on May 3 Stars vs Golden Knights

You have to give the Stars credit, they did not fret after dropping consecutive games on their own ice. Dallas picked up two wins in Las Vegas, and then got the 3-2 win on Wednesday as the home team won for the first time this series.

One of the big keys to Dallas’ rebound has been the play of Jake Oettinger in net, as he’s stopped 89 of 95 shots in the Stars’ three game win streak. It would have been easy for Oettinger to lose his confidence after allowing 4 goals on only 15 shots in the series opener, but he’s shined even while getting peppered with SOG the last three games.

One thing to remember about Vegas is that they are the defending Stanley Cup champions, so eliminating them without a fight won’t be an easy task. The Stars are the top seed in the West, but Vegas was also 27-12-2 at home during the regular season.

May 3 Stars vs Golden Knights Prediction & Pick

Can the Golden Knights reverse the momentum and get a home win just like Dallas did in Game 5? The Stars are favored just like they have been all series, but it wouldn’t be a complete shocker to see Vegas pick up this win and force a Game 7. 

Pick: Golden Knights
