NHL Betting Trends
The Stars are 28-62 in their last 90 games played on zero days of rest. Dallas is 15-36 in its last 51 Sunday games.
The Blackhawks are 4-0 in their last four games as a favorite. Chicago is 10-3 in its last 13 games overall.
Chicago has had plenty of rough stretches this season, but has gradually shown improvement over the last couple months. The Blackhawks have the firepower up front, so its usually a matter of defense and goaltending. Chicago has the rest advantage here and the Stars already looked tired Saturday, so I'm taking the hosts here on what is a reasonable enough moneyline.
