Stars vs Coyotes Odds

Dallas Stars vs Arizona Cardinals Prediction

The Dallas Stars are hot and Arizona is well Arizona(4-14). This (Dallas) team has won 5 out of their last 6. How have they done it?

Very Simple. Defense and hot goaltending. The last 3 games only giving up 1 goal and the last 6 games only 1 or 2 goals. This team has shown some major improvement in their last 5 games because of Miro Heiskanen and John Klingberg who have provided the Stars with an exceptional defensive presence. They have been key players in quarterbacking the powerplay and locking down their opponents. Combine this with Braden Holtby's .92 save percentage and this Stars team shuts down the opposition (9 goals in 6 games). DEFENSE wins games can't say it enough.

Connor Mcdavid, who is arguably the best player in the league, came into the November 23 game against the Stars with a 17 game point streak. The Oilers ended up losing 4-1 and Mcdavid logged 0 points, breaking that streak. If this isn’t enough to show how good this defense is, then let’s look at the Avalanche. Last night the red hot Avs took on the Stars and lost 3-1. Before this game, The Avs covered their -1.5 spread in 6 of their last 6 games scoring 39 goals. (you rode that you would be enjoying some serious green because they are en fuego until they met Dallas that is). With all that being said, they were held to just 1 goal against the Stars.

After seeing them shut down Connor Mcdavid and the high flying Oilers and then the Avs right after that, it’s safe to say that this Stars defense has gelled and is smoking hot right now. The Arizona Coyotes are arguably the worst team in the league and rank 31st in goals scored. I think this pick is an absolute no brainer. Stars (-190) is a little high even though you win there is no juice but the smart way to play this game is with the Stars winning in regulation (-120) or -1 (PL). Stars win 3-1 and the team in green will get us the green on Saturday night.
