Can Chicago rebound vs surging Stars?

The Chicago Blackhawks will look to get back on the winning track at the United Center when they host the Dallas Stars tonight. The ’Hawks dropped a tough loss to Nashville on Tuesday and are just barely holding the final playoff spot in a crowded Western Conference. Despite its recent loss, Chicago opened as a -123 favorite to get the W.

SHARK BITES
  • The Blackhawks are 2-10 SU in their last 12 games vs divisional opponents.
  • The total has gone OVER in four of Dallas’ last 6 games on the road.
  • Chicago is 5-0 ATS in its last five games.

The Blackhawks have been an up-and-down team this season, which has been frustrating for Chicago backers. The ’Hawks are 5-5 SU in their last 10 games and can’t seem to find any consistency. The one saving grace is Chicago’s record versus the Stars. Chi-town is 5-0 SU in its last five games against the divisional rival but only 2-3 ATS. It may be best to stick to the Blackhawks moneyline in this one.

The Stars are coming off their most impressive win of the season after shutting out the Vegas Golden Knights. Being able to avoid the “Vegas Flu” and locking up a hot Knights team got them back into the wild-card spot in the West and they’re 4-1 SU and ATS in their last five games. Now on to the bad news as the Stars’ record on the road has been awful. Dallas is 4-9 SU and ATS away from American Airlines Center and, as I mentioned, doesn’t have a great recent history vs the Blackhawks.

The total opened at 6 goals and the UNDER looks promising for tonight’s matchup. Dallas and Chicago both rank in the top 11 for fewest goals allowed this season and the UNDER has hit in four of Chicago’s last five games. Expect a low-scoring affair for this barnburner.

The visiting Dallas Stars opened as +122 moneyline underdogs in this one at most online sportsbooks tracked at OddsShark, including BetOnline. The total opened at 6 for those preferring OVER/UNDER betting; watch for the line updates during the day at Bovada.
