The Dallas Stars are obviously the better team on paper, but they continue to pile up the losses and keep getting these insane juiced prices. At some point the Stars have to start winning games to even consider laying these sort of prices with them. The Stars have lost nine of their last 12 games, and right now only the Ducks and Sabres have lost more money this season than Dallas. We hit on the Detroit Red Wings and the big plus money in this matchup on Thursday. I'll go back to it based on the value.
