Dallas Stars vs Arizona Coyotes Betting Odds
The Dallas Stars are absolute favourites going into this game with -263 odds in their favour while the Coyotes are at 525. The draw is set at 485.
The total goals margin is set at 5.5 with -141 to go over and 114 for under.
This bet is as safe as a bet can be. You have a home team that needs a win to clinch the playoff spot on the one end and the worst team in the conference that was on a ten-game losing streak and will miss eight players in the game. So, Dallas absolutely needs this win to finally set them apart from the Golden Knights who are right behind them.
Even more, with a win, the Stars may climb higher than the eighth seed which means they will avoid a matchup against the Colorado Avalanche in the opening playoff round.
