Dallas is 5-0 in their last 5 games as a favorite and 4-1 in their last 5 games following a win while the over is 2-0-2 in their last 4 games following a win. Detroit is 30-85 in their last 115 games overall and 13-39 in their last 52 games against a team with a losing record while the under is 6-1-3 in their last 10 games as a home underdog. The over is 7-3-3 in the last 13 meetings between these two teams.

I get the case that could be made for a home dog on most nights, but realistically, the Red Wings aren’t going anywhere in a month when the playoffs are going on. Dallas, despite their shortcomings this season and how much I’ve ragged on them, Dallas is still in a playoff position and have a chance to make things interesting down the stretch if they can keep up the solid play. It’s not a great price, but I’ll lay it and play it with the Stars here.
