The Colorado Avalanche face the Dallas Stars in Game 2 of their Western Conference second round playoff series on May 9, 2024. DraftKings Sportsbook has the Avalanche as +110 underdogs and the Stars as -130 favorites. Currently, the Avalanche has 34% of moneyline bets while the Stars have 66%. The initial total of 6.5 sees 16% of bets on the under and 84% on the over. It's set to be an exciting matchup between these two competitive teams, with huge implications for the rest of the series in store.

Heading into Avalanche vs Stars Game 2, the Avalanche hold a 1-0 lead in this series. They pulled off a comeback win in Game 1, coming back from three goals down to get a win. Now the question is whether the Avs can get out to a better start in this game or if the Stars can hold a lead this time around, as a win for Colorado would be huge before this series shifts to Denver, while the Stars hope to even this series up at a game apiece.

In this contest, our best bet is for the Dallas Stars to come away with a win on home ice as a slight favorite. While the Avs were certainly impressive in their comeback in Game 1, this game will essentially decide whether or not the Stars have a chance in the rest of this series. A loss here for Dallas would put them down two games before going to Colorado, where the Avalanche have been close to unbeatable this year. Instead, we think the Stars stand tall on their home rink and at least keep this a series before having to travel to Ball Arena.
