New Jersey Devils vs. Dallas Stars - 2/1/20 NHL Pick, Odds & Prediction
Dallas Stars at New Jersey Devils
Saturday, February 1, 2020 at 7:00 PM (Prudential Center)
DAL -150 O:U 5.5
The Dallas Stars got to Newark, New Jersey to take on the New Jersey Devils on Saturday at the Prudential Center. The Dallas Stars are coming off of a loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs in their last game. The Stars have been inconsistent in their previous five games, going on a two-game losing streak in their last five, as the Stars have lost to the Buffalo Sabres and the Minnesota Wild in their last game. The Stars' loss to the Stars was quite the loss as they were defeated by a score of 7-0 to Minnesota, playing maybe the worst game the Stars have played all season.
The Dallas Stars are 28-18-4 on the season and are third in the Central Division. The Stars are led offensively by their star Center, Tyler Seguin, who has 37 points on the season so far. The Stars struggle on the offensive end, only ranking 29th in the NHL in goals, but have had the NHL's best defense, only allowing 125 goals this season.
The New Jersey Devils are coming off of a loss to the Nashville Predators, but one their game before the Predators game against the Ottawa Senators, as both games came down to one goal. However, the Devils win over the Predators was their only victory in their last five games.
The New Jersey Devils are 18-24-8 on the season with a terrible home record of 7-9-8 this season. The Devils are eighth in the Metropolitan Division and have not been great on either side of the ice this season. The Devils are currently 27th in goals and 30th in goals allowed this season.
Dallas is 26-24 ATS this season
Stars are 10-2 in their last 12 games playing on two days rest.
New Jersey is 22-28 ATS this season
Devils are 16-35 in their last 51 vs. Central.
Neither team has a very good offense in this game, and I think that this game will likely come down to the better defense. The New Jersey Devils do not play great defensively, as they are the second-worst and goals allowed, but the Dallas Stars are currently the best defense in all of the NHL, and I think that that will be the difference as the Dallas Stars win this game comfortably. Final Score Prediction, Dallas Stars win 5-2.
