DALLAS STARS vs. EDMONTON OILERS PREDICTIONS

The Stars continue to cling to a playoff spot in the Western Conference. If the playoff started today they'd face the top-seeded Colorado Avalanche. Hey, at least they'd be in.

Dallas has alternated wins and loss across the past four outings, scoring a total of seven goals while yielding 10 markers, as the UNDER has cashed in three of the past four outings overall.

The last time these teams, Dallas came away with a 5-3 victory at American Airlines Center in Dallas on March 22 as the OVER connected. The Stars also topped the Oilers 4-1 in Big D back on Nov. 23 as the UNDER cashed behind Jake Oettinger.

DALLAS STARS BETTING ANALYSIS

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

  • SU: 43-28-5
  • ATS: 33-43
  • O/U: 32-42-2

The Stars have been stuck in neutral lately, winning three of the past seven outings. This is a team which is on the cusp of a playoff spot, but it needs to start winning on a more regular basis.

The Stars have won six of the past eight games on the road, but they're 5-11 in the previous 16 as a road underdog, too. They're also 4-0 in the past four games played on a Wednesday, for whatever that's worth.

For totals, the UNDER is 9-4 in the past 13 games overall, while going 5-2 in the past seven games against the Pacific Division.

EDMONTON OILERS BETTING ANALYSIS

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

  • SU: 44-26-6
  • ATS: 36-40
  • O/U: 38-35-3

Edmonton has been red hot lately, as it tries to hold off the Los Angeles Kings in the Pacific Division. The Oilers are currently two points up on the Kings with two games in a hand, while sitting 10 points back of the first-place Calgary Flames with one game in hand.

The Oilers have rattled off 10 wins in the past 11 games at home, while going an impressive 11-1 in the past 12 as a home favorite. They're also 8-2 in the past 10 games overall, while winning 36 of the past 52 as a favorite. They're 5-2 in the past seven games against teams with a winning record, too.

For totals, the UNDER has connected in six straight, while going 6-0 in the past six against Western Conference foes, too. The UNDER is 5-0 in the past five against winning teams. However, the OVER is 11-3 in the past 14 at home, 10-1 in the past 11 as a home favorite and 11-3 in the past 14 overall as a fave.

DALLAS STARS vs. EDMONTON OILERS PREDICTIONS

The Stars have owned the Oilers over the years, and Dallas could use another two points here as they try and track down a playoff spot. Every point is crucial at this point. The same holds true for the Oilers, however, as they're two points clear of the Los Angeles Kings for second place in the Pacific Division, as well as home-ice advantage in the first round against said Kings, so Edmonton cannot slip up, either.

This will be an entertaining game, and goals should be at a premium. It wouldn't be surprising to see this one decided in overtime or a shootout, and the way this series has gone, it wouldn't be surprising to see Dallas coming out on top, either. However, I think the Oilers get it done here. They've been red hot lately.
