Stars, Coyotes on NHL lines

Dallas will try to gain ground on division-rival Phoenix in NHL betting action on Tuesday night, with the Coyotes a -155 home favorite against the road underdog Stars.

Phoenix has more wins on the road than at home but they have won three straight over the Stars (+135), who are just 15-14-1 on the road this season. Phoenix also enjoys a long history of beating the Stars and hope this is the game for a turnaround as they scrap for their playoff lives in the last quarter of the regular season. The Coyotes will see a ton of attention on the NHL betting lines, but don’t count out a wager on the Stars.

Dallas is hungry and in a fight for the playoffs with several teams. With a win the Stars could move to within two points of the Coyotes in a race for the tightly-contested Pacific Division.

Dallas has won two straight over worthy opponents Detroit and Nashville, while the Coyotes have lost three straight. The Stars are also better in goals-against, penalty-killing, and do boast a stronger power-play. Brad Richards is close to returning, but will not be in the lineup for this matchup.

The momentum seems to be with Dallas – at least for the moment - and they could be the best upset wager as a road underdog on a busy NHL betting schedule. Head-to-head the UNDER bet has paid out in five of the past seven games. The playoff race is in full stride with lower-scoring games expected, and that should make totals betting favor the UNDER wager again between these teams.

Defending-champion Chicago is on a roll as they make a push toward the postseason and will be a home favorite when they host the Calgary Flames in a key NHL betting matchup on Wednesday.

Chicago has not lost to the Flames at home in four straight and they should see the majority of the action on the NHL betting lines. Calgary has won two of the last three against Chicago and could be worth a bet as a road underdog. The Flames will need to be better than their 65 percent on the penalty kill against the Blackhawks if they are to reverse the trend at the United Center.
