The Arizona Coyotes and the Dallas Stars meet in NHL action from the American Airlines Center on Saturday. Let’s dive into the odds, injuries, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.
Dallas is a -333 home favorite while Arizona is a +270 road underdog with the total set at 6 goals for this game.
Arizona has Lawson Crouse listed as out for this game with an upper body injury while Liam O’Brien is also out until late January with an upper body injury. Roope Hintz is listed as questionable for this game for Dallas with an upper body injury.
The Dallas Stars won the first meeting between these two teams this season by a final score of 7-2, snapping a mini two-game win streak for the Coyotes dating back to last season.
Arizona is 20-49 in their last 69 road games and 19-48 in their last 67 games overall while the under is 4-0 in their last 4 games against a team with a Western Conference. Dallas is 5-2 in their last 7 home games and 5-2 in their last 7 games against a team with a winning percentage below .400 while the over is 3-1-1 in their last 5 home games.
I’m going with the under in this one. I just don’t trust the Arizona Coyotes’ offense to do much of anything, but Dallas hasn’t been anything special themselves and I just think this is a game that is going to have trouble getting to five goals between a pair of teams that have been trending towards the under in recent weeks. Give me the under.
