The Devils are 21-47 in their last 68 games as an underdog, 15-38 in their last 53 games as a road underdog and 17-35 in their last 52 overall. The Stars are 9-1 in their last 10 games as a home favorite, 9-1 in their last 10 home games and 9-3 in their last 12 games as a favorite. The over is 4-1 in Devils last 5 road games.

The over is 4-1-1 in the last 6 meetings in Dallas.
The home team has won seven of the last 10 meetings and has had the clear upper hand beyond that as well. The New Jersey Devils can't get out of their own way during this losing stretch and are having issues keeping the puck out of the net. The Dallas Stars haven't had much success stringing wins together, but they've been sharp defensively and are a tough out nightly. You'd like a bit of a cheaper price, but the Stars should get the job done against a slumping Devils squad.
