Then you ought to tune in to the Jets-Stars game tonight, according to sportsbooks, if you prefer intentions. The total of this game opened at a huge amount of 6 but will most likely be hammered down to 5.5 at the time the betting windows close.
A precedent is definitely for goals in this show with four of these teams’ five matchups last year with eight or more targets. That said, levels of 6 are very rare — so, what exactly are the chances we see more or six goals tonight?
In the eight cases where the total has closed in a number greater than 5.5 because the 2014-15 season, the 2 teams playing have actually eclipsed the set total five times and the average total goals scored was 6.125. Five-eighths is definitely not a lock but it is a fantastic amount for a line which has some plus-money value on the OVER.
Without that historical info, I’d be leaning toward the tonight that is OVER. The simple fact that there are just two totals of 5.5 or more at the previous two seasons signifies Vegas is scared of this game and is pretty damn certain there is going to be many goals.
The Jets’ aims for and against complete right now sits at 6.48 while the Stars’ is a lofty 5.98. Aims are way up in the NHL at this time and the two goalies playing tonight — Michael Hutchinson and Antti Niemi — leave a lot to be desired with their various 4.02 and 4.83 goals-against averages.
Keep an eye on the total in our NHL odds page and if you find a total of 5.5 at one of the novels, take it and run with it.
Here’s the historical data for matches in the previous 3 seasons that have closed with a total of over 5.5.
