NHL wagering fans see that Dallas and Anaheim are neck and neck for that final eighth playoff spot in the western conference race and this is a critical matchup to bet on hockey with. The Dallas Stars have had their share of recent NHL wagering problems.
Dallas lost their last 3 games of February to fall into an 8th place tie with the Ducks in the western conference. The Stars 14th ranked offense abandoned them as they scored 2 goals in those 3 games. The worst performance was a 0-1 home loss to St. Louis as the Stars let down those bet on hockey with them as -$145 chalks.
Dallas has also been trending “under” in recent NHL wagering action as from February 8 through February 26 they went under the total in 7 out of 9 games. Dallas had an overall NHL wagering record of 29-24-3-4 straight up but was just 27-33 against the hockey lines.
Dallas had a road NHL wagering mark of 12-14-1-2. In their last NHL wagering matchup at Anaheim the Stars prevailed 4-3 as the game went over the total of 5.5. Veteran Mike Modano came through for everyone that bet on hockey with Dallas as he got the game winning goal in overtime.
The Anaheim Ducks lost 4 out of 6 games against the NHL wagering board from February 15 through February 26. Their worst NHL wagering loss was a pathetic 4-8 debacle at home against lowly Atlanta as -$230 chalks.
Anaheim had an overall NHL wagering mark of 30-28-3-2 straight up while going just 28-34 against the hockey lines. Anaheim’s former NHL wagering strength was their defense but that has slipped as of late and the Ducks ranked 20th overall in the league.
The offense, meanwhile, ranked just 16th. Goaltenders Jean-Sebastien Giguere and Jonas Hiller need much more support in front of them if Anaheim is to get into the post season.
