Stars vs. Sharks Prediction

I’m on the under here. These two teams just met on the weekend and we saw five goals between the two. Scoring remains somewhat of an issue for the Stars, and even if they bounce back, the Sharks have been so anemic offensively this season and the Stars’ goaltending is top notch, that I don’t think the Sharks could break one or two goals here. The price is too hefty for me to get on a side with Dallas and I can’t trust the Sharks, so give me the under here.

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
