 Dallas Stars vs Tampa Bay Lightning

The Stars are currently in second place in the Central Division with a record of 14 wins and 5 losses. They are coming into this match after a great win over the Tampa Bay Lightning in their home town. However, this time they will be travelling, and they will be playing against the Lightning away. Regarding their stats, the Stars have an exciting offence as they tend to score an average of 3.55 goals per game; their defence is also doing a decent job so far as they tend to allow an average of 2.77 goals.

Meanwhile, the Lightning aren’t doing that well as they are currently in fifth place in the Atlantic division with a record of 10-10. To make things even worse for them, they are coming into this match after losing their last 4 matches. Their defense has been a big problem this season as they allow an average of 3.72, one of the worst. Nevertheless, their offense is doing a better job as they tend to score an average of 3.32.

How the game will play out

I don’t think it’s hard to predict the outcome of this match. Even though the Lightning are playing in their home town, the Stars are playing so well that I really can’t see them losing this match. 

My pick: The Dallas Stars with a puck line of -1.5 at (+163) PowerPlay Sports.

Pittsburgh Penguins vs Philadelphia Flyers

The Pittsburgh Penguins have been a bit unstable this season, currently in 6th place in the Metropolitan Division with a record of 11 wins and 10 losses. They come into this match after losing their most recent game against the Flyers by 4-3 in their home town. To make matters more difficult, they will be playing once again against the Flyers, but this time away from their home stadium. The Penguins have a good defence right now, allowing an average of 2.61 goals per game; however, their offence can have some improvements, scoring an average of 3.13.

On the flip side, the Philadelphia Flyers are having a slightly better season, currently in fifth place in the Metropolitan with a record of 12 wins and 10 losses. Most of their success can be attributed to their defence, as they only tend to allow an average of 2.88 goals per game. However, their offence needs some improvement in the future, as they are only scoring an average of 2.92.

How the game will play out

It’s very hard to predict this one, however, if I had to make a choice I would go with the Flyers just because they are playing in their home stadium. 

My pick: The Philadelphia Flyers moneyline bet of +107 at BetOBet.

Carolina Hurricanes vs Winnipeg Jets

The Hurricanes are currently in second place in the Metropolitan Division with a record of 14 wins and 8 losses, entering this match after a victory against the Sabres with a score of 6-2. Most of their success can be attributed to their offensive line, as they are scoring an average of 3.48 goals per game while allowing an average of 3.26.

In contrast, the Jets are currently in third place in the Central Division with a record of 13-8. They come into this match after a great win over the Chicago Blackhawks with a score of 3-1. Their defence is performing well, allowing only an average of 2.78 goals per game while scoring 3.26.

How the game will play out

It’s very hard to predict these games as both teams are having a great season. However, if I had to pick I would go with the Jets because they are playing in their home town. 

My pick: The Winnipeg Jets moneyline bet of +105 at BetOBet.
