OVER Wagers Hot When Stars Visit Hawks

Jamie Benn Dallas Stars Patrick Kane Chicago Blackhawks NHL

The Dallas Stars are one of the better OVER plays in the NHL this season, but that fact seemingly becomes a lock when they visit the Chicago Blackhawks. The two Central Division rivals will meet up at the United Center Thursday evening.

Shark Bites
  • The Blackhawks are 16-4 SU in their last 20 games.
  • The Stars are 3-8 SU in their last 11 games on the road.
  • The Stars are 4-1 SU in their last five games overall.

At online shop Bovada, the Hawks are -140 in moneyline markets while the Stars are +110. As far as the total is concerned, Bovada has OVER 5.5 goals at +105 with UNDER 5.5 at -135.

Overall, seven of the previous 10 meetings between the Stars and Hawks have resulted in paydays for OVER bettors, but in the meetings in Chicago alone, 13 of the previous 16 contests have resulted in scores eclipsing the total. Furthermore, six-straight contests between the Stars and Blackhawks at the United Center have gone OVER. The last game to finish UNDER the total in Chicago was on February 23, 2012; a game that snapped a seven-game streak that cashed OVER wagers.

The two teams aren’t exactly strangers to scoring goals this season. The Stars are the second-highest scoring team in the NHL averaging 3.22 goals scored per game while the Hawks are ninth in the league at 2.77. Dallas is the seventh-best OVER wager on the season at 28-25-1 but the Hawks, thanks to their stellar blueline and goaltending, are the second-best UNDER play at 28-18-11.

Opening Odds & Computer Pick

The Dallas Stars were listed as 120 underdogs on the NHL hockey moneyline earlier at Bet365. The over under total was set at 5.5 before betting started earlier on Thursday at Bovada.

A 2.8-2.7 result in favor of the Blackhawks is the prediction by the Odds Shark handicapping pick engine. View the computer score prediction and who will win the pick on the moneyline for all upcoming NHL matchups here.
