Stars vs. Flames: Game 6 prediction
This series has snaked back and forth with Calgary taking Game 1, Dallas winning the next two, and Calgary coming out victorious in the next two to regain the lead. We’ll predict that the ping-pong nature of the series will continue tonight as the Stars have their backs against the wall at home. Expect Dallas to lay it all out there and send it back to Canada for Game 7.
Pick: Stars +140
This has been a defensive oriented series as only one game has gone over five goals. It should stay that way with both teams locking in defensively.
Pick: Under 5.5
