Sports Betting

Heated Central Division rivals clash in “Big D” tonight as the Dallas Stars host the Chicago Blackhawks.

Let’s take a look at this February 9, 2021 showdown from a betting perspective in our Blackhawks vs. Stars betting preview with odds, picks and predictions.

Blackhawks vs. Stars Betting Pick

The Chicago Blackhawks picked up a 2-1 overtime decision against Dallas on Sunday, thanks in part to winger Alex DeBrincat, who scored on the power-play midway through the second period and again in extra time to seal the victory.

Goaltender Malcolm Subban picked up his first win in a Hawks uniform, making 30 saves on 31 shots faced. Stars backup Jake Oettinger took the loss, making 33 saves on 35 shots faced.

Starter Anton Khudobin, who didn’t dress on Sunday because he overslept his alarm and missed practice the day before, is expected to return in net tonight for Dallas, with Chicago projected to start rookie sensation Kevin Lankinen between the pipes.

Dallas has lost four of their last five games since starting the season on a four-game win streak, while the Hawks have won three of their last four overall.

Bets We Like With a Stars Win

Jamie Benn OVER 2.5 Shots on Goal (+110, DraftKings)

The 31-year old captain made the highlight reel on Sunday for dropping the gloves and fighting Hawks defenseman Nikita Zadorov. Benn is a solid all-around player, and with three goals and three assists, plus firing at least two shots on goal in all five games played, I like for him to get some solid scoring chances in tonight’s contest.

Bets We Like With a Blackhawks Win

Philipp Kurashev to Score a Goal Anytime (+380 DraftKings)

The 21-year old rookie has been playing solid hockey thus far, scoring four goals and picking up two assists. Seeing time on the power-play unit for Chicago, which ranks third in the league thanks to converting at a 36.2% clip, means he should have some decent cracks at scoring his fifth of the year this evening.

Bets We Like Independent of the Outcome

First Period UNDER 1.5 Goals (-115 DraftKings)

Both of these clubs have been slow starters in terms of scoring this season, with Dallas going  under the total seven times in the opening period of their first nine games, while Chicago has gone under the first period total in each of their last three games on the road. I expect another tightly defended start to this showdown, especially with both teams playing their top goaltenders in net.

Blackhawks vs. Stars Prediction

Chicago continues to find ways to win tough battles this season. With their top goalie back and the return of solid two-way defenseman Adam Boqvist in the lineup following  a prolonged absence due to COVID protocols, I feel like the Hawks are live here has a solid priced underdog once again. Chicago wins this game 3-2.
