Oddsmakers are expecting a very close contest in Dallas on Monday December 3rd when the Oilers visit the Stars. The early value seems to be on Dallas as they are an impressive 8-3-1 at home on the season. Edmonton has strung together three wins in a row however and could take advantage of a Stars team that has played 7 of their last 8 on the road.
The Oilers haven’t scored a ton of goals lately but they’ve still done enough to stay afloat at 10th place in the Westenr Conference. For example Edmonton has netted just 6 goals their last 3 games but have also gone 3-0 over that span. Overall the Oilers have been held to 2 goals or less in 6 of the last 10 but have still gone 5-4-1 over that time. Tonight’s matchup of the Oilers 27th ranked offense in goals/game and Dallas’ #23 unit has ‘under’ written all over it…on paper.
The reason a low scoring affair isn’t a sure thing is because Cam Talbot and his .889 save percentage is in net for the Oilers. Talbot has given up 3+ goals in six straight games which could be just what the Stars offense needs to get going athome on Monday.
The Dallas offense has been just as bad – if not worse – than the Edmonton attack this season. The Stars have been stonewalled to 2 goals or less in 7 of their last 10 games including five contests netting 0 or 1 score. Dallas has also found ways to win despite not scoring posting the exact same 5-4-1 record as Edmonton over their last 10. Dallas also benefits from being back home for just the 2nd time since November 16th. The Stars are impressive on their own ice at 8-3-1.
One of the major advantages besides home ice that Dallas has is their defense and specifically goaltender Ben Bishop. The Dallas net minder has allowed 4 total goals in his last 4 appearances. That being said, Saturday’s start was Bishop’s 1st since November 19th after missing time with a lower body injury. He was sharp with just 1 goal allowed on 25 shots in Vancouver but will their be any rink rust in start two?
NHL Betting Trends:
- Oilers are 1-6 their last 7 road games
- Stars are 10-4 their last 14 home games
- Home team is 5-0 the last 5 meetings
- Oilers are 9-37-1 the last 47 meetings in Dallas
Free Edmonton Oilers vs. Dallas Stars NHL Prediction:
Neither side really scares you on offense in this contest. The Stars have advantages of being at home and having Ben Bishop in net. It can wear on a team playing as many road games as Dallas has over the past two weeks but luckily for them Edmonton isn’t playing that potent of offense right now. There’s just too much value on the home team.

Bishop stands tall in net as the Stars protect their solid home ice record.
