Let’s take a look at some betting trends for this match-up. Anaheim is 8-2 SU in its last 10 games and 4-1 SU in its last 5 games on the road. Anaheim is 4-2 SU in its last 6 games when playing Dallas but only 3-7 SU in its last 10 games when playing on the road against Dallas. Also, Dallas is 1-4 SU in its last 5 games at home. Dallas is the second highest scoring team in the league at 3.6 goals per game. However, Dallas has the third worst defense in the league, allowing 3.7 goals per game.
When looking over this game what made up my mind were the betting percentages. Also, the fact that Anaheim is coming off two tough games between the Blackhawks and Blues. One would have to question how much they have in the tank after playing last night. Dallas has not looked good their last two games, but they will be the fresher team tonight. Going over the percentages 55% of all Off-Shores bettors are with the Stars tonight. Now with only a 55/45 split the odds should stay some what close to the opening line. However, the line has moved a good bit for the Stars tonight. Indicating that “sharp” money may very well be on the Stars. Opening line for the Stars was 1.87 and now it sits 1.80. Some places we’re seeing it as low as 1.77. I believe this is the direction it will continue to go until the puck drops. Take the Stars as they look to play well in front of the home crowd tonight. Best of luck!!!
