The Stars had an opportunity to wrap up their series with the Avalanche on Wednesday but Colorado’s offense came to play and claimed a 5-3 victory. However, now the venue shifts to Mile High, and according to the NHL odds, Dallas has been outstanding on the road all season long.

Let’s take a closer look and analyze which will be our best bet at top-rated sportsbooks

NHL Pick

Dallas Stars vs. Colorado Avalanche

Friday, May 17, 2024 – 10:00 PM ET at Ball Arena

Key Facts

  • Dallas is 7-3 SU in their last 10 games.
  • Dallas is 12-2 SU in their last 14 games on the road.
  • Dallas is 3-1 in Colorado this season.

Makar Saves the Day

Had it not been for the offensive heroics of Colorado’s Cale Makar, the Avs would likely be making vacation plans at this very moment.

The perennial All-Star defenseman is a potent offensive weapon for the Avalanche and he proved his worth on the other side of the ice in Colorado’s 5-3 Game 5 victory by chipping in a pair of goals, including one on the power play.

The Pick

No team has been better on the road this season than the Dallas Stars, posting a regular season mark of 26-10-5 on the highway and a postseason road record of 4-1. Dallas will now get an opportunity to prove they are the consummate road warriors by wrapping up this series on Friday night at Mile High where they are 3-1 this season.

Both teams have outstanding offenses with Colorado ending the regular season as tops in scoring, averaging 3.68 goals per game. However, Dallas was in their rearview mirrors, posting 3.59 goals per game (3rd). Still, defense often tells the tale and the Stars are simply a much stingier team and thrive on the road.

Let’s get even money on the slight underdogs in this one and cash a ticket.
