Red-Hot Stars Bid for Fifth-Straight Win

Tyler Seguin Dallas Stars Alex Pietrangel St. Louis Blues NHL

The Dallas Stars have been hockey’s hottest team post All-Star break and will go for their fifth-straight win when they visit the St. Louis Blues in a Central Division battle Tuesday night.

Shark Bites
  • The Stars are 6-1 in their last seven games versus the Western Conference.
  • Blues are 3-7 in their last 10 versus the Western Conference.
  • UNDER is 7-1-1 in the Blues’ last nine games.

The Stars have gone 8-2 in their last 10 games and have used their four-game streak to pull even with the Chicago Blackhawks with 79 points at the top of the Central Division. Dallas has three games in hand, however, and can nab sole possession of the top spot with the Hawks off Tuesday night.

The Blues are right there in the Central, sitting six points back and looking to build on a modest two-game winning streak of their own. St. Louis has won four of its last five meetings with the Stars, but it was Dallas which skated to a 3-0 victory in the last meeting back on December 27.

The Stars were on a tear for OVER bettors, cashing in six-straight games before that ended in a 3-2 win at the Nashville Predators their last time out. It’s rare for the OVER to hit when these two clubs square off, however, as UNDER has actually gone 5-1 in the last six meetings and has cashed in three straight heading into Tuesday’s contest.
