Wild vs Stars Predictions: Expert Insights on the NHL Showdown

In today’s much-anticipated NHL clash, our Wild vs Stars predictions focus on the fierce battle between the Dallas Stars and the Minnesota Wild. This game, the third and final showdown of the season, promises to be a thrilling encounter. Let’s dive into the details and see where the odds stand in this high-stakes NHL matchup.

The Dallas Stars’ Edge in the Series

The Dallas Stars are aiming for a clean sweep against the Minnesota Wild at the American Airlines Center. With the NHL odds favoring the home team and a total set at 6½ goals, the Stars’ confidence is sky-high. They recently snapped a three-game losing streak with a victory over the Wild, displaying a solid performance that suggests they might repeat this success.

Betting Trends Favoring the Stars:

  • The Stars have an impeccable NHL team stat of 5-0 in their last five games when their opponent scores two or fewer goals in the previous game.
  • They hold a strong 4-0 record in their last four home games against teams with a road winning percentage below .400.
  • Dallas has excelled in the second game of home-and-home situations, with a 4-1 record in their last five.

The Minnesota Wild’s Struggle

The Wild, on the other hand, have hit a rough patch, losing four of their last five games in the NHL schedule. Their overall performance this season, particularly on the road with a 7-10-2 record, raises concerns about their ability to turn the tide in this crucial game.

Challenges for the Wild:

  • The Wild are 0-4 in their last four games against Western Conference teams.
  • Over the last 10 contests, Minnesota went 4-6-0 against the spread and 5-5-0 straight up.
  • They have struggled to score, failing to net over two goals in five of their last six games.

Wild vs Stars Predictions: Betting Picks

Pick Against The Spread: Our Wild vs Stars NHL betting lines lean towards the Dallas Stars at -1½ (+130). Considering their offensive prowess, averaging 4.4 goals per game in their last five, and the Wild’s scoring struggles, the Stars are well-positioned to cover the spread.

Player Prop Bet: Jason Robertson as any time goal scorer (+120) is a smart bet. Robertson has been a consistent performer, scoring in three of his four games in January, including three goals in the first two games against Minnesota.
