OVER Has Paid out in 12 of the past 14 Meetings Between the Stars and Sharks

Jason Spezza #90, Martin Hanzal #11 and Esa Lindell #23 of the Dallas Stars celebrate after Lindell assisted Hanzal on a first-period power-play goal against the Vegas Golden Knights during their game at T-Mobile Arena on December 9, 2018 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Stars vs Sharks Game Center

Stars haven’t been a safe bet on the road

San Jose has dropped a pair of one-goal decisions in Dallas this season, including a 3-2 setback on Friday which is the only loss in the Sharks’ past five contests. The Sharks topped New Jersey 5-2 at SAP Center on Monday when captain Joe Pavelski scored for the seventh time in eight games to reach the 20-goal mark for the sixth straight year. Since returning from an upper-body injury, Timo Meier has collected three goals and four assists in four games.

Dallas has dropped the first two games of its four-game road trip, including a 6-3 defeat to the Anaheim Ducks on Wednesday. In their past eight away from home, the Stars are now 2-5-1 SU. A bright spot for the Stars has been Miro Heiskanen, the No. 3 pick in the 2017 NHL Draft, who’s registered two goals and four assists over Dallas’ previous six tilts. Captain Jamie Benn has gone three games without a point after notching five goals and two assists in his previous six.

Dallas has had the edge against San Jose lately

The Stars haven’t been the most reliable team in the NHL this year when it comes to cashing moneyline bets, yet they have been an excellent play against the Sharks over the years. Dallas is 6-1 SU and on the puckline in its past seven meetings with the Sharks.

When it comes to the total, bettors would be wise to pay attention to the OVER tonight. In the past 14 matchups between the Western Conference squads, the OVER is a sizzling 12-2. It’s also a perfect 5-0 in their last five clashes at SAP Center. In San Jose’s previous seven overall, five of them have gone OVER.
