Randy’s Pick

The Dallas Stars are going to be slight favorites because they’re at home, and there’s something to be said about a team that’s earned points in every game so far this season. With that said, both teams are on fire out of the gate and I find value in getting plus money on either side. It also doesn’t hurt that the Maple Leafs have won 4 straight games against the Stars and 8 of the last 10 meetings against them overall. This could possibly be the game of the night on a loaded NHL card. I want the plus money with the Maple Leafs.
