Nashville Predators at Dallas Stars CashBet Wagering Analysis

At the onset of his Nashville tenure, head coach John Hynes was considered damaged goods.  The New Jersey Devils fired Hynes, and his arrival was greeted with NHL betting skepticism.  But as time has gone on, the Devils haven’t gotten any better.  Further, Hynes is the last coach to take New Jersey to the playoffs.  Nashville has taken strong form under Hynes.  Last season’s playoff appearance was considered an accident.  This year Nashville is proving to be one of the best teams in the Western Conference.  Concurrently Dallas trails the Predators in the Western Conference standings.
