Game: Dallas Stars at Edmonton Oilers Mar 28 2012 9:35PM
Grade: Winner (100)
Reason: At 9:30 PM EST on Wednesday, we will be playing Under the Total in the game between the Dallas Stars and the Edmonton Oilers. Dallas (41-30-1-4) looks to rebound from their 5-4 loss at Calgary on Monday where goaltended Kari Lehtonen allowed four goals in just a 10:16 span in the game. We look for Lehtonen and the Stars' defense to rebound with a strong effort in this one. Dallas has seen the Under go a decisive 20-7-1 in their last 28 games after allowing at least five goals. And Lehtonen enjoys a 2-0-0 record against the Oilers this season with a sparkling 1.00 GAA. The Stars have also played 4 of their last 5 road games Under the Total as a favorite. Additionally, the Under is supported by an empirical angle that has been 65% effective over the last five seasons. In games with the Total set at 5.5, road teams that allowed at least four goals in their last game and now face a team that comes off a win by at least three goals, these games went Under the Total in 132 of the last 204 situations where these conditions applied.
Edmonton (31-36-2-7) is red hot right now having won two straight -- as well as going 5-0-2 in their last seven games -- after their 6-3 win at Columbus on Sunday. Dallas has seen the Under go 3-1-1 in their last 5 games against an opponent that scored at least five goals in their last game. The Oilers return home here after four straight games on the road -- and they have played 4 straight home games Under the Total. Edmonton has played 5 of their last 6 games Under the Total as an underdog. And in their last 8 games against fellow Western Conference foes, the Oilers have played 6 of these games Under the Total. Together, these team trends produce our specific 47-12-2 combined angle for this situation. Lastly, because Dallas has won the last three meetings between these two teams, the Under is supported by a second empirical angle that has been 64% effective over the last five seasons. In games where the home team looks to avenge at least two straight losses against their opponent while coming off a game where they won on the road by scoring at least four goals, these games then finished Under the Total in 80 of the last 125 situations where these conditions applied. 25* NHL Western Conference Total of the Month with Under the Total in the in the game between the Dallas Stars and the Edmonton Oilers. Best of luck for us -- Frank.
