Stars vs. Canucks Pick

NHL Predictions: Can the Canucks upset the Stars at home? 10/30/17

Will the Vancouver Canucks pick up an upset as a home underdog when they host the Dallas Stars tonight at 10PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at, the Stars are favored on the road, as they are getting odds of -130 to win, while the Canucks are receiving odds of +110 at home. The over/under total for the contest has been set at 5.5 goals. Tonight’s game takes place from Rogers Arena in Vancouver, British Columbia.

The Stars are coming off a 2-1 win at Calgary on Friday night, which snapped a two-game losing streak. Dallas is 6-5 overall and 2-4 on the road. Dallas is scoring and allowing 2.91 goals per game this season. Jamie Benn is leading the team with seven goals and six assists while Tyler Seguin has six goals to go with five assists. Ben Bishop is 5-2 in net this year with a 2.71 GAA and a .911 save percentage.

The Canucks come into tonight red-hot, as they have won four straight, including a 6-2 win over the Capitals at home on Thursday night. Vancouver is 6-3-1 on the season and 2-2-1 at home. Vancouver is putting up 3.00 goals per game while allowing just 2.40 per contest. Brock Boeser is leading the team with nine points while Derek Dorsett is putting up six goals. Jacob Markstrom is 3-2-1 in net and has a 2.48 GAA with a .908 save percentage.

Bet on Stars vs. Canucks

Dallas has dominated this series, winning nine of their last 10 meetings. The Canucks have also struggled at home in recent history, going just 4-17 in their last 21 home games. They are also 7-20 in their last 27 conference matchups. I like Bishop more in net for this game and trust him to have another good showing. The Canucks have relied on fast starts this year, while Dallas has been very good defensively in the opening period. If Vancouver can’t start fast, I don’t think it will win. Expect the Stars to keep the Canucks from starting fast. The public is behind Dallas on the road and I am with them.
