The Wings are 0-6 ATS in their last 6 road games and 1-10 ATS in their last 11 games overall. The Stars are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 home games and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 vs. Western Conference. The Wings are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in San Antonio and 0-3-1 ATS in the last 4 meetings overall.
Two teams that are out of the playoff race and going through a massive losing stretch. Hard to be confident on either side even with the Wings beating the Stars in six of the last seven meetings. So, with the way both clubs have played the last month, I'll side with the home team and the free points.
