Blues get a visit from underdog Stars
The St. Louis Blues have managed to pick up the victory in seven of their last 10 games against the Dallas Stars as those teams meet in NHL betting action on Saturday night.
However, the Blues fell 3-2 at home to the Stars as a -200 favorite on the NHL odds when the teams last met back on March 11 in an UNDER result.

It's a hockey betting matchup between the No. 17-rated Blues and the No. 4-ranked Stars, according to the latest NHL power poll here at Odds Shark.
Dallas won its last outing, a 7-3 result against the Predators on March 28. Bettors who backed the Stars at -170 on the moneyline won on the day, and the total score (10) sent OVER bettors to the payout window.
