Stars vs. Ducks Pick

NHL Predictions: Can Stars record the upset at Ducks? 2/21/18

Are the Dallas Stars in a good position to record the small upset tonight when they play at the Anaheim Ducks? Game time is set for 10PM ET.

According to oddsmakers at YouWager, the Ducks are listed as a -125 favorite on the moneyline. The Stars are a +105 underdog, while the total is set at 5.5 goals. Anaheim opened as a -135 favorite before the line was bet down.

Bet Tonight's NHL Action

As of Wednesday afternoon, 56 percent of public bets are coming in on the visiting Stars. Online wager info also shows that 53 percent of bets are being placed on the under.

Dallas enters with a 34-21-2-2 record, while Anaheim is 30-20-5-6. This is the first meeting this season, while last year's series was split 1-1 with each team winning on their home ice. The Ducks are 6-4 in the last 10 meetings, while the over-under has gone 5-5.

The Stars have lost two of their last three games badly, falling 6-0 at home to the Canucks and 5-2 to begin this road trip at the Sharks. Sandwiched in between was a 2-1 home win over the Blues. Dallas is still 6-4 over its last 10 contests thanks to a five-game winning streak, while the under has gone 5-4-1. Anaheim has won three in a row including a 2-0 upset at the Golden Knights last game. The Ducks are 5-5 over their last 10 games, while the under has hit six games in a row and is 7-3 over the last 10. 

I'm looking at Anaheim's last win as something that will cause a letdown this game. The Ducks were a big underdog at Las Vegas and came away with the victory, which can tend to linger into the next game if you allow it. If Anaheim rests on previous accomplishments tonight, look for Dallas to take full advantage. These two squads are fairly even in the skill department, although the Stars have more firepower up front. Look for players such as Jamie Benn and Tyler Seguin to make a difference.
