The Anaheim Ducks prefer to play at home and the Dallas Stars prefer to play on the road. They’ll get the opposite of what they prefer when Anaheim (8-6-2 on the road) visits Dallas (3-3-2 at home) in the lone NHL contest on Tuesday.

NHL Picks: Ducks vs. Stars

The Anaheim Ducks can win because…

Dallas is a crummy home team. On the season, Dallas has won just three times in eight home games – what kind of home-ice advantage is that? As a matter of fact, the Stars have lost four straight in their own confines. Is that the type of team you really want to add to your NHL picks?

The Ducks are one of the best teams in the NHL. Yes, they are better at home (9-0-1) but their eight road victories ties them for the most away wins in the NHL. They’re worth adding to your sports picks as a small road dog.

The Dallas Stars can win because…

You don’t really know what you’re getting with Anaheim these days – especially on the road. Yes, Anaheim’s road record might look decent but keep in mind that much of that was built up in the early going. They won on Saturday in Phoenix (4-2) but prior to that, had lost four straight on the road. They’ve scored just 12 goals in their last six road games, which indicates that the Stars won’t have to do too much to get this win on Tuesday.

Outlook & Pick

The Stars aren’t great at home and the Ducks aren’t great on the road. With that being a wash, I’ll take the team that’s been better this season, which is the Ducks. Considering you also get them as a dog on the NHL odds, that entices me even more.
