Live bettors’ faith in the Golden Knights was rewarded Monday.
The Knights reached as high as 11-1 in in-play betting before rallying for a 5-3 victory over the Dallas Stars in a playoff round-robin game in Edmonton, Alberta.
William Hill confirmed the Knights’ odds on its Twitter account. Vegas trailed 3-1 midway through the third period before ripping off four goals in 10 minutes.
Trailing 3-1 in the 3rd Period, the Golden Knights were 11/1 underdogs on the LIVE InPlay Money Line on the @WilliamHillNV app to rally and defeat Dallas.

The Knights were -145 pregame favorites. The late flurry pushed the game well over the total of 5½ (+120).
William Karlsson’s empty-net goal with 21 seconds remaining also made the Knights an unlikely winner on the -1½ puck line (+185).
