Chicago Blackhawks vs Dallas Stars 02/09/2021 Betting Odds:
Interestingly, the Chicago Blackhawks seized their first road victory of the season by serving the first home loss of the Stars this year. After six failed tries, they finally solved the puzzle that was playing away from the United Center. All thanks to Alex DeBrincat, who has been on an absolute tear since returning from an eight-day COVID-19 protocol. The 23-year-old left wing scored both of the team’s goals on Sunday – one in the second period and another in OT that secured the win. His latest performance extended a series of impressive scoring output to three games, two of which the Blackhawks have won. But despite the pair of victories, the squad is aware that more work is needed for them to stay in contention in the Central Division, where they currently sit at the fifth spot.
Players to watch: Patrick Kane RW (G 6, A 11, PTS 17), Alex DeBrincat LW (G 6, A 6, PTS 12), Dominik Kubalik LW (G 3, A 8, PTS 11).
The Stars fell short in their first meeting with the Blackhawks, and it cost them a stain in their once unblemished record at the American Airlines Center. The loss dragged Dallas down to sixth place in the division standings with 12 points, but picks still have the Stars winning the second affair. After all, the team remains above .500 despite the latest setback. Head coach Rick Bowness and his players will come prepared to avoid getting tripped at their home ice for the second straight time. Rookie goalie John Oettinger, who started in place of Anton Khudobin, showed promise last game with 33 saves that earned the praises of his coach. Khudobin could be back to his usual starting duties after getting slapped with disciplinary action from the team management, but it would not be surprising if Oettinger eventually gets the nod sooner than later.
Players to watch: Joe Pavelski C (G 7, A 8, PTS 15), Alexander Radulov RW (G 3, A 8, PTS 11), John Klingberg D (G 2, A 8, PTS 10).

Chicago Blackhawks vs Dallas Stars Betting Picks
There is no way the Stars are going to drop two losses in a row at home. A revenge game is about to take place on Tuesday in Texas as the hosts are determined to send the Blackhawks back to Chicago with an L in their bag. The online betting forecast would not tag the Stars as favorites for no reason. It will be a rather defensive game yet again, but the home team will make sure that they will prevail this time around.
Score Prediction: Blackhawks 1, Stars 3.
