Dallas Stars vs Anaheim Ducks Betting Odds
The Dallas Stars are favourites going into this game with -147 odds in their favour while the Ducks are at 300. The draw is set at 376.
The total goals margin is set at 5.5 with -119 to go over and -103 for under.
The Dallas Stars survived in the battle for the last playoff spot but now they can put themselves in a better situation going into the last regular season game. The Stars are hosting the Anaheim Ducks which they are dominating not losing a single game since 2018.
With a win, the Stars may finish the season in seventh place in the Western Conference and avoid the Colorado Avalanche in the opening playoff round. If that will be the case will depend on the outcome of the Nashville Predators game who are one point ahead of the Stars and are visiting the worst team in the conference, the Arizona Coyotes, in their last game of the regular season.
