Dallas risks missing the playoffs for the second year in a row after reaching the final in the 2019/20 season. Since the start of the regular season, the Stars had performance problems that seemed to have been resolved by the end of November, when Rick Bowness's team had won seven in a row in regulation time. The group seemed unstoppable now, but they continued to alternate between successes and failures. Before the break, the Black and Green enjoyed another strong run, winning five of their last seven games to move into tenth place in the Western Conference standings.
Nashville had become an unremarkable NHL team in recent years. Fortunately, they've made serious progress in the current regular season, and not just in terms of results, but also in terms of entertainment. They unexpectedly lost four straight games in mid-January but then won five games in the point streak and recorded four wins. They also failed in Edmonton. Nashville is now in second place in the Western Conference standings but is already eight points behind the leader.
Expert Betting Tips
Dallas and Nashville are having a very different regular season. While the Predators are among the Western Conference leaders, the Stars are outside the playoff zone. The opponents also have a different approach to this game. While the home team has won just once in their last three games, the visitors have won four of their previous five contests. Also, they've won their previous three meetings in a row. As a result, we suggest betting on Nashville to win the game for 1.95.
The game between Dallas and Nashville has become increasingly rare in terms of scoring. In the last five head-to-head encounters, the opponents combined for only 19 goals (3.80 average per game), which is extremely low, especially in the NHL. We shouldn't expect a goal-scoring in this upcoming game, as both teams haven't played in a while, and they'll need time to get into a competitive rhythm, so we should expect a total under encounter. As a result, we suggest betting on a total under 5.5 for 1.95.
Matt Duchene is having a great regular season. The Canadian is playing his third season for Nashville, and now he has a chance to score more points than he did in the previous two regular seasons combined. If he previously recorded 55 points (19 goals + 36 assists), in 42 games, he has already recorded 41 points (21 goals + 20 assists). The 31-year-old hockey player is obviously in excellent form right now, and he has already produced a power play in his last meeting with FC Dallas. In such a situation, we suggest betting on Matt Duchene total over 0.5 for 2.75.
