The under is 7-2 in Flames last 9 overall. The under is 16-5-1 in Stars last 22 overall. The favorite is 9-4 in the last 13 meetings. The home team is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings. The over is 5-2-1 in the last 8 meetings in Dallas.

The Calgary Flames have had issues stringing wins together lately, and they don’t win on the road. The Dallas Stars not only are the better team at both ends of the ice, but they’re at home, and home teams usually have the edge in these weird early starts. I’ll gladly side with the Stars and the cheap price.
