Dallas/Chicago Under 5 1/2 +1.04 (3 Unit Play)
It appears that the Stars will turn back to Marty Turco for tonight's contest after Tobias Stephan turned in a great performance on Wednesday against the Wild. Turco has struggled this year so far but I look for him to get back to the form that we are used to soon and should start this evening. The Black Hawks will likely start Khabibulin in net this evening and he has been very good at home so far this year stopping 91 out of 97 shots for a 93.8% save percentage. These two clubs have matched up 20 times since 1996 in Chicago and the Under has cashed 14 out of 20 times and in fact over the past three seasons the Under has cashed in four out of four times. I am getting plus money on this total and I will gladly buy and recommend playing this game Under tonight.
Anaheim -1.57 (1.5 Unit Play)
Anaheim -1 1/2 Goals +1.73 (1.5 Unit Play)
For those of you that followed me during baseball season you know that my handicapping style is to never lay more than -1.30 and if you feel that you have to to split the bet up between the money line and the run line and my approach in hockey is no different. I am not a fan of laying 1 1/2 goals in hockey as many games land on one but that is what I am recommending in this game tonight. Vancouver is off of a 4-0 win last night against Los Angeles but have not been performing very well defensively so far as last night was the first time in 9 games that they went Under the total. Anaheim meanwhile has turned their season around winning five straight games but they have still only been winning by a goal lately and I feel they are primed for a big performance against the Canucks this evening. Anaheim dropped three out of four contests to Vancouver last year and I am sure they will remember that and I look for a three goal victory from them this evening.
