Detroit Red Wings Betting Analysis

Florida pummeled the Detroit Red Wings on Thursday night by a score of 5-1. Matthew Tkachuk was part of a four-goal explosion in the second period that the Panthers never looked back from.

The Detroit Red Wings, when Alex Nedelijkovic keep their fans and bettors alike on their toes. So, Detroit often gives up three or more goals when he is in the net. The goaltender has yielded 13 goals in his last three starts. Thankfully, for the Red Wings, Ville Husso will likely start.

Detroit knew playing Florida after beating Tampa Bay would be tough. Few Probably expected Florida to have that scoring outburst.

Dallas Stars Betting Analysis

The Dallas Stars played well enough to defeat the Ottawa Senators in overtime by a score of 4-3 on Thursday night. Dallas has been a bit up and down of late, going .500 in their past seven results.

The problems with Dallas are relatively few. Dallas scores regularly ranking second in the league with 102 goals. This Stars team gives up just 79 tallies. Jake Oettinger and the Stars’ defense are two big reasons why. Oettinger has ten wins on the young season already along with two shutouts.

Also, with the Stars’ ability to score, they can overcome their mistakes better. Oettinger dropped (+700), for now, to 4th in the odds to win the Vezina Trophy. The goaltender is 10-3-3 on the season and has a .915 save percentage. He needs to keep rolling with the Stars and their pretty stout defense.

Red Wings vs Stars Recent Results

Date Home-Away Moneyline Puck Line Total

The teams faced off twice last season as Dallas swept the series. Both games saw Dallas score five goals and Detroit has issues with their penalty kill versus Dallas.

Red Wings vs Stars Prediction

Dallas closes a nice five-game homestand as they entertain the Detroit Red Wings on Saturday afternoon. Detroit starts a half-dozen-game stretch where they alter between the road and home games. That includes a back-to-back next week.

Red Wings vs Stars Same-Game Parlay Picks

Pick Odds
Dallas Total Over 3.5 Goals -120
Dallas Puckline +125
PARLAY ODDS  +165

The Red Wings expect to start Ville Husso on Saturday in Detroit. Going against Jake Oettinger will be interesting in the sense that both goaltenders have about the same numbers. Both goalies expect to see a ton of scoring chances. Husso has won 11 times in 18 decisions this season (four losses in regulation, and three in extra time). He leads goaltenders with three shutouts in the early going.

Expect some interesting results on Saturday afternoon. Dallas needs this game badly knowing they go on the road for five games starting next week. That trip for Jason Robertson and Roope Hintz starts with games in Pittsburgh and New Jersey on consecutive nights.

Pick: Dallas Stars PL -1.5 (+125)
