Hurricanes vs Stars Moneyline Pick: Hurricanes (Ev)

This is a solid matchup for Carolina. Dallas is more efficient team on offense, namely due to Carolina’s struggles to convert on scoring chances. But the Stars also have poor goaltending at home. Dallas ranks second-worst in the league with an 87.8% save percentage at home.

Even if Dallas only gives up over 25 scoring chances, which is the third-fewest, Carolina may just score on four of these. The Hurricanes have a 30.9% power play on the road and it is at 37.5% in their last three games facing Dallas. On top of that, Carolina has averaged over 36 shots versus Dallas in this span.

Given Carolina’s advantages, it is the best NHL bet – we give it better than a 50% chance of winning this game.

 

Hurricanes vs Stars Over/Under Pick: Over 6½

Porous goaltending combined with prolific offenses on both sides are why we like the total to go over. We may just see over 70 shots on goal in total so even with 90% save percentages on both sides, which is unlikely, that will be seven goals. Bet online against the trend and go over.

 

Hurricanes vs Stars Player Prop Pick: Andrei Svechnikov – Over 2½ SOG (-127)

The Hurricanes will put up a lot of shots here and forward Andrei Svechnikov will be among the leaders. He averages two to three per game so we’re betting online he hits the latter.
