  •  The Florida Panthers are -185 home favorites vs the Dallas Stars on Friday, January 14
  • Florida leads the NHL with a 24-7-5 record and a league-best 19-3-0 home record
  • Odds and matchups can be found below with a prediction

There’s a couple of things that bettors should expect when the Florida Panthers and Dallas Stars clash on the ice in NHL action.

First of all, anticipate a close game. The last three Panthers-Stars games were all one-goal decisions. Secondly, you might want to tell the babysitter not to be expecting you home early. That’s because each of those three one-goal outcomes were determined either in overtime or via a shootout.

The Stars are 1-4 straight up over the club’s past five visits to Florida. Oddsmakers expect that trend to continue. The Panthers are set as -185 home favorites. Dallas is 4-10-1 straight up on the road this season.

Oettinger Taking Over Dallas Net

With Holtby out, Jake Oettinger will get the call in the Dallas net. He’s won his past three decisions but is 0-1 on the road this season.

Anton Khudonin, the 2020 Stanley Cup hero for Dallas, was recalled from the AHL Texas Stars to back up Oettinger.

Stars vs Panthers Prediction

Dallas is a different team on the road than at home. The Stars have won just two of their last seven visits to Florida.

The Panthers are winners of each of their past five home games.
