Bet on Red Wings vs. Stars

Detroit has had a promising start while Dallas is surprisingly winless. However, there are key stats that show that both teams are due to turn in the other direction soon. Dallas is dominating the attack, averaging nearly 20 more shots per game. Eventually that sort of discrepancy is going to pay off. Detroit is the opposite, as it has managed to win despite allowing nearly 10 more shots per game. The Wings are getting goal tending right now, but they can’t keep winning by allowing more shots.
