Bet Stars to Shine Bright vs Struggling Islanders

The Dallas Stars, who are +1100 in our odds to win the Stanley Cup, come home after a 1-2-1 road trip to host the struggling New York Islanders on Monday night.

The Stars salvaged their only victory on the trip Saturday with an impressive 2-1 triumph at Carolina. Dallas, which leads the Central Division by one point over Winnipeg, had lost four straight contests (0-2-2) before managing a win despite just 16 shots on net.

Jason Robertson and Wyatt Johnston scored for the Stars, who paid off bettors on the puck line. Dallas has not been a good hockey bet ATS, though, going just 22-37 on the season.

The Islanders started the Patrick Roy era with an overtime win over the Stars at home on Jan. 21, but have gone 3-5-3 since. New York has dropped five of six and sit eight points out of a playoff spot.

Roy’s team is now +3000 in the Las Vegas hockey odds to win the Eastern Conference.
