The Dallas Stars continue to cash in the underdog role and they've now won three straight games against the Tampa Bay Lightning. The Stars have won five of their last six games as an underdog, so while the Lightning are probably the better team and haven't lost back-to-back games since entering the bubble, it's hard to ignore these prices with the Stars until they stop cashing. I'll take the Stars and a more favorable price based on what we've seen from them in their last five or six games.
