The New Jersey Devils and the Dallas Stars meet in NHL action from the American Airlines Center. Let’s dive into the odds, injuries, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.
Dallas is listed as a -135 home favorite while New Jersey is a +115 road underdog with a total set at 6 goals.
John Marino is questionable for this game for New Jersey with an upper body injury while Dallas has a clean bill of health coming into this game.
Dallas 4-1 win over New Jersey back on December 13th, 2022, made it 5 wins in the last 6 meetings between these two teams.
New Jersey is 7-2 in their last 9 games overall and 19-8 in their last 27 road games while the over is 3-0-1 in their last 4 Friday games. Dallas is 6-2 in their last 8 Friday games and 2-5 in their last 7 games played on 1 days rest while the under is 5-1 in their last 6 games against a team with a winning percentage above .600.
I’m backing the under in this one. These are two solid defenses and while the Devils gave up a pile of goals on Thursday, I think a lot of that had to do with MacKenzie Blackwood starting between the pipes for the Devils. Vanecek should be good to go here and I think this is a first to 3 wins kind of game. Give me the under here.
