|Over 5.5 (115) @ williamhill|
The set-up: The first two games of this series have fallen well below the posted number, with the Stars winning Game 1 by a score of 1-0, before the Knights prevailed 3-0 in Game 2. These two teams are two of the best defensive clubs in the league and each possesses World class goaltending. That said, the Stars did come into this series as the highest scoring team in the playoffs and the Knights were right behind them. Lop-sided numbers and trends have a way of naturally correcting themselves over the short, mid and long-term and after only four goals having been scored over the first two games total, I look for that low-scoring trend to end in a big way in Game 3.
The pick: Additionally note that the Stars have seen the total go "over" the number in eight of their last 11 after getting shutout and allowing three or more goals in a loss in their previous outing. This one has "over" written all over it!
This is a 10* TOTAL OF THE MONTH on the OVER Knights/Stars.
