Stars Have Been Unbeatable at Home

Jamie Benn Dallas Stars

Deep in the heart of Texas tonight at the American Airlines Center, the Dallas Stars will look to put an end to the Minnesota Wild’s misery and move on the Round 2 of the playoffs. At just 1-8 in their last nine games, the Wild will be in tough against a Dallas team that’s won eight in a row at home.

Shark Bites
  • The Stars are 7-1 in their last eight games after winning the previous game in a matchup.
  • The Stars are 6-1 in their last seven games with one day off between games.
  • The total has gone UNDER in four of Dallas' last five games at home.

Unsurprisingly, the Stars opened as a -195 favorite, which is another spot they’ve dominated in. Dallas has won eight straight as home favorites, while the Wild are an ugly 2-7 in their last nine as road underdogs. To pile on even more, Minny is just 3-7 in their last 10 games in Dallas.

Unfortunately for Minnesota backers (if there’s any left), they don’t have much to lean on coming into the game. They’re 1-6 in their last seven games after a loss, and 1-7 when losing the previous game in a matchup. They’ve been outshot so far in every game in the series, with the Stars putting a total of 117 shots on net to the Wild’s 87. Only four Minnesota players have a +/- above zero, compared to 12 on Dallas.
