NHL wagering has not gone well for the Edmonton Oilers as of late while the Dallas Stars have been one of the hottest teams in hockey wagering. The Edmonton Oilers would likely miss the NHL wagering post season if the campaign ended today.
While Edmonton does have a winning record they have not been consistent enough to hang in the top eight slots of the western conference. Edmonton had an overall hockey wagering record of 27-23-1-3 straight up and 25-29 against the board.
The Oilers produced only two NHL wagering payoffs in their first six games of February with just two of those games having gone over the total. Edmonton’s main NHL wagering problem has been their 26th ranked defense while the offense was in the middle of the pack.
The Dallas Stars got off to a terrible start this NHL wagering season but have since straightened out and have become one of the best values on the NHL wagering board as of late. From January 21 through February 13 the Stars went on a hockey wagering stretch in which they got the cash in eight out of ten games.
Just three of those ten games went over the NHL wagering total. Dallas had a well deserved NHL wagering reputation in the past as a strong defensive team but the facts are now reversed. The Stars NHL wagering strength is their 11th ranked offense while their defense ranked in the bottom third of the league at 24th.
Dallas has been a strong NHL wagering team at home with a mark of just seven losses in 27 games as a host. Loui Eriksson led Dallas in goals with 26 while Mike Ribeiro led the Stars in assists with 36 and points with 49.Marty Turco has not been great in goal as his save percentage was just .896 with a goals against average of 2.81. Edmonton beat Dallas 4-1 on January 3 in Rexall Place as the game went under the total of 5.5.
