Both teams are in the hunt to make the playoffs in the Western Conference so the intensity level should be high in this NHL bet matchup. Let’s take a look at the game between the Ducks and Stars.
NHL betting scheduling information shows that this is the first game of a critical five-game homestand for the Ducks. Dallas is playing the last game of a three-game road trip as NHL betting stats indicate. It is also the second half of a back-to-back NHL betting situation as the Stars were in Los Angeles last night.
NHL betting trends slightly favor Dallas even though they are playing with no rest. The Stars have won six of the last 10 games against Anaheim as NHL betting numbers indicate. Dallas has actually won three of the last five games at Anaheim as NHL betting results show. The teams met three times earlier this season and Dallas won two of the three including 5-2 at Anaheim.
Dallas has been a much better team at home than on the road but that does not mean they can’t pull off the occasional road win. The Stars are decent offensively and when goaltender Marty Turco plays well they can be a good wager for gamblers making an NHL bet. The Stars have been led in scoring this season as NHL betting stats show by Mike Ribeiro. Brad Richards leads the team in shots while Stephane Robidas is their plus/minus leader as NHL betting numbers indicate.
Anaheim is in the middle of the NHL on both offense and defense as NHL betting statistics show. The Ducks must pick things up on both ends of the ice if they expect to make the playoffs. Ryan Getzlaf leads the team in points while Corey Perry leads them in shots. Steven Montador is the plus/minus leader as NHL bet numbers show. Anaheim is normally known for their defense but they have struggled this year as have goaltenders J.S. Giguere and Jonas Hiller.
The over is 5-3-2 in the last 10 meetings between the two teams. At Anaheim, the over is 3-1-1 in the last five meetings as NHL betting results indicate.
