DALLAS STARS vs. VANCOUVER CANUCKS PREDICTIONS

There are still 11 teams which have yet to be eliminated from the Western Conference playoff picture, with four teams having clinched. The Stars and Canucks are still alive, with the Canucks currently not in the postseason if the season ended today.

Dallas has 91 points with seven games remaining in the regular season, tied with the Predators in the Central Division with one game in hand. The Stars are also ahead of the Los Angeles Kings, who have 90 points, and Dallas has two games in hand on them. Realistically, Dallas is going to top out in fourth place in the division, as Minnesota is in third place, 10 points clear with seven to go.

Vancouver sits with 84 points and seven regular-season games left, three points back of the Vegas Golden Knights for fourth place in the Pacific Division. They're six points back of the final spot in the Western Conference, too, so there is still plenty of work to be done. They've been hot lately, which is a good start, however.

DALLAS STARS BETTING ANALYSIS

Straight Up - SU, Against the Spread - ATS, Over-Under (O/U)

  • SU: 43-37-5
  • ATS: 33-42
  • O/U: 31-42-2

The Stars have picked up three victories in the past four outings, and haven't lost in regulation in four outings since April 9 against the New Jersey Devils of all teams. They'll also be looking for a little revenge after a 4-1 loss against the Canucks back on March 26 in Dallas. Prior to that, Dallas lost in Vancouver on Nov. 7 by a 6-3 score as the OVER connected.

Dallas has won six of the past seven on the road, while going 10-2 in the past 12 as a road favorite. The Stars are also 20-7 in the past 27 as a favorite, while going 21-7 in the past 28 against losing teams.

For totals, it's all about the UNDER lately, going 4-1 in the past five games overall, while also going 4-1 in the past five as a favorite. The UNDER is 6-2 in the past eight tries against the Western Conference, while cashing in five of the past six against the Pacific Division.

VANCOUVER CANUCKS BETTING ANALYSIS

Straight Up - SU, Against the Spread - ATS, Over-Under (O/U)

  • SU: 37-28-10
  • ATS: 46-29
  • O/U: 35-36-4

The Canucks have remained in the hunt for a playoff spot thanks to a five-game win streak, including a pair of victories over the Vegas Golden Knights, a team they're trying to track down. Vancouver has rolled up 26 total goals while allowing just nine during the impressive run, too.

Vancouver has also posted five in a row against Western Conference teams, including a 7-1 belting of the Arizona Coyotes last time out. They're still just 3-7 in the past 10 as a home underdog, however.

In terms of totals, while it's been UNDER all day for Dallas lately, it's OVER for Vancouver in recent games. The OVER is 3-0-2 in the past five games overall, 3-1-1 in the past five at home, while going UNDER in five of the past seven as an underdog.

DALLAS STARS vs. VANCOUVER CANUCKS BETTING CONCLUSION

This is a very important game for the playoff hopes of both teams, especially the Canucks. Vancouver cannot afford to slip up and see its win streak end, as the Canucks need every single point it can get, and it's still no guarantee Vancouver will even make the postseason.

Dallas has picked up plenty of points lately, too, and while they're 0-2 this season against Vancouver, the Stars are 16-7 in the previous 23 meetings, and 9-3 in the past 12 trips to the Pacific Northwest. However, I like the way the Canucks are playing lately, and they're not getting wins cheaply, but they're manhandling teams. Look for the Canucks to score a higher-scoring win Monday, keeping hope alive.
