Betting Pick: Dallas Stars vs. Nashville Predators

The Dallas Stars and Nashville Predators will contest a crucial Game 3 at the American Airlines Center in Dallas on Monday night. Nashville evened this Western Conference first-round series with an overtime victory on Saturday. The Stars had previously stolen Game 1 on the road.

It may not have been an absolute must-win situation, but the Predators knew how daunting a challenge they would face if they lost the first two games of their Western Conference first-round series at home. Instead they picked up a dramatic 2-1 overtime defeat of Dallas on Saturday, giving them renewed confidence heading into Game 3 on the road on Monday. Although Nashville dominated Game 2, the Central Division champs needed a goal from Craig Smith five minutes into OT to level the series at one game apiece.

The Stars were outshot by a nearly two-to-one margin during Saturday’s setback but they headed home with a mission-accomplished mindset after a 3-2 victory in the series opener.

Despite captain Jamie Benn scoring the opening goal, Dallas managed only 23 shots on net and struggled badly on the power play, failing to capitalize on any of its six chances with the man advantage.

The art of sports betting is not something that is taught or learned overnight. Like most hobbies, it takes time and effort to pick winning spreads and keep momentum. Many novice sports bettors choose to bet with their hearts instead of their minds. Sports betting is about statistical information, the type of knowledge that only comes through following teams, players and game results.
