Stadium: American Airlines Center (Dallas)
The game in Dallas will be Nashville’s fifth straight home game. Will the Predators’ fatigue be a key factor in the upcoming game? Let’s pick a few bets at once.Get Your Welcome Bonus!
Dallas barely win
The Stars haven’t lost nearly as many games in regulation time, though - 5 in 11 games. As it turns out, Rick Bowness’ team confirms its status as a very strong team at the start of the championship. It’s extremely difficult to beat Dallas. The Stars may pick up in the course of the championship, and in time the draws in regulation time will be replaced by more frequent victories.
While for Nashville, the game in Dallas will be another destination, the Stars have just completed the away period. In Canada, the Stars lost first to Winnipeg in a shootout, then to Calgary in overtime. Finally, they failed to score against Vancouver, allowing their opponent to take three power plays.
Nashville have a decent away period
John Hynes’ team, in general, looks very good at the beginning of the championship. The Predators’ strength was highlighted by their 5 points in 4 road games. The Predators dealt with Calgary in overtime, then lost to Edmonton notwithstanding back-to-back. After that, they outplayed Vancouver and scored 1 point in the game with Chicago, losing to the Blackhawks, who changed their coach at the end of overtime.
Overall, if the Predators make the playoffs this season, it would already be a serious achievement. Nashville’s payroll is bursting at the seams, forcing the team to shed several superstars. First and foremost, we’re talking about Ryan Ellis and Viktor Arvidsson. It’s a shame that there’s virtually nothing left of the Stanley Cup finalist team five years ago. I can’t help but feel that those Predators could have accomplished a lot more than a one-off appearance in the Finals.
Expert Betting Tips
It is unlikely that Dallas will lose here to Nashville. The Predators looked a bit heavy already in Vancouver, but thanks to the great game of Juuse Saros, were able to cope with the young Canucks. After that, there was another tough game in Chicago where the Predators lost in overtime. John Hynes’ team might not have the strength for a game in Dallas. Although Nashville can still clinch a draw, which is traditional for a game against the Stars, Dallas have also struggled so far.
We predict that Dallas will not lose, but it is unlikely to win in regulation time.
