Jets vs. Stars Pick
According to oddsmakers at YouWager, the Stars are a -155 favorite to win on the moneyline. The Jets are a +135 underdog, while the total sits at 5.5 goals.
Dallas opened as a -155 favorite before the line was bumped up. The over-under has remained intact at 5.5 goals. If you shop around for the best price, it is possible to still find the Stars at -150 and the Jets as good of a price as +140.
As of Saturday morning, 61 percent of public bets have been placed on the visiting Jets. Online wager info always states that 78 percent of bets have come in on the over.
KEY INJURY TO WATCH
Winnipeg goaltender Steve Mason is questionable tonight as he deals with a brain injury. As for the Stars, center Martin Hanzal is questionable with a lower body injury.
The Jets have won six consecutive head-to-head meetings including twice back in November, 5-2 at home and 4-1 at Winnipeg. But being on a back-to-back definitely makes this a difficult challenge against the more-rested Stars. With the home team being 5-2 in the last seven meetings, I'm going to eat the price and bet on the favorites. Streaks are meant to be broken.
