The Ducks will still have one more game left at Phoenix on Saturday. This could be a critical game for the Ducks in the playoff race so that is something to keep in mind as you bet on hockey action on Saturday.
Hockey betting trends favor the Stars in this matchup as they have won 6 of the last 10 meetings. The numbers are even better for Dallas at Anaheim in hockey betting as they have won three of the last four including both previous meetings this season. The Stars won 5-2 back in November at Anaheim and they also won last month 3-2 at The Pond as hockey betting results indicate.
Dallas made a run at the playoffs for a while but the last few weeks have not been good for Dallas and they have fallen well out of it. Dallas just doesn’t get enough scoring on a regular basis to win in hockey betting and their goaltending with Marty Turco has been spotty. Not seeing Dallas in the playoffs will be strange for hockey betting gamblers, but that is the case this season.
Anaheim has made a late playoff push but overall their season has been disappointing in hockey betting. The Ducks were not expected to have to fight to make the playoffs. Their goaltending, like Dallas’ has been very inconsistent this season and that has hurt them versus the hockey odds. The Ducks are in the bottom half of the league on both offense and defense as hockey betting stats show. Having their defense rank 17th or worse as bet on hockey numbers indicate is just shocking considering how well Anaheim has played in past seasons. Ryan Getzlaf has been the leading scorer for Anaheim as hockey betting stats show, but too often the Ducks just can’t score three or four goals. In past seasons it didn’t matter since as you bet on hockey versus the hockey odds as they only gave up one or two goals but not this year.
The over has been the way to go with this hockey betting total recently as it is 6-3-1 in the last 10 games. At Anaheim, three of the last four games have gone over the bet on hockey total.
