NHL Look Ahead Friday, Dec. 12, 2021
Another week, another look ahead at some of the top weekend games on the NHL slate, so today, we will take a deeper dive into a handful of games in order to figure out where we should be leaning.
Understanding where we should be heading early in the week helps us maintain success and do solid research.
Dallas Stars at St. Louis Blues
This is going to be the second consecutive game that these teams will play against one another, as they faced off in Dallas on Tuesday as well.
The St Louis Blues are the overall better team in this game as they are currently 10-3-2 at home and are 15-13 against the spread overall this season, while the Dallas Stars are 4-8-0 on the road this season and 12-13 against the spread so far.
The difference is the offense, as the Blues are scoring 3.36 goals per game while the Stars are averaging 2.72 goals per game. Dallas does not have anyone that can match up against Pavel Buchnevich. All in all, go with the St. Louis Blues to cover the spread at home.
