The New Jersey Devils are one of the NHL’s best teams at home at 11-4-4 but it’s their 4-12-1 road record that has them mired towards the bottom of the Eastern Conference. Those away woes will be put to the test Wednesday at Dallas where the Stars are 12-5-2 this year.
New Jersey Devils
New Jersey has been playing well lately as they bring a 3 game win streak into Wednesday’s contest. The Devils are significant underdogs at Dallas but they recently scored a 5-2 win in Boston on 12/27 at a +192 line.
Mackenzie Blackwood is between the pipes on Wednesday and the rookie is one of the major reasons why New Jersey isn’t a bad bet in this game. He’s won three straight outings and is rolling on back-to-back shutouts over Carolina and Vancouver. The Stars have been struggling to score so this is another solid matchup.
Dallas will need to get their offense going in order to defend their significant home ice advantage. The Stars have scored 2 goals or less in 6 of the last 7 games although they have gone 4-2-1 over that span. That’s a huge toast to the Dallas defense which is top 5 in goals against.
The Stars have held 4 of 7 opponents to a goal or less. G Ben Bishop is 3-1-1 in his last five games and has allowed just 8 total goals over that span. Wednesday’s game should be dominated by goaltending which makes an ‘under’ play look appealing.
NHL Betting Trends:
- Devils are 4-1 their last 5
- Devils are 6-21 their last 27 road games
- Stars are 8-3 the last 11 H2H meetings in Dallas
Free New Jersey Devils vs. Dallas Stars NHL Prediction:
The Devils have played well lately but 4 of their last 5 games have been on their home ice. Prior to the win over Boston New Jersey had lost 8 of 9 road games.
The Stars have actually dropped 3 of their last 4 at home which gives New Jersey hope at +143. With Dallas being set at such a lofty price the Devils have considerably higher value.
