This inter-conference clash in Philadelphia on Sunday, November 13, is one of six NHL games on the schedule, and here you can get the best Stars vs. Flyers betting pick and odds.
Both Dallas and Philadelphia are hoping to avoid their third consecutive defeat when they face at Wells Fargo Center. The Stars are -133 moneyline favorites on BetDSI Sportsbook, while the total is set at 6.5 goals. These inter-conference rivals have met twice last year, and the Stars won both games.
Stars couldn’t come from behind to beat the Sharks
The Dallas Stars (8-5-1-0, 9-5 ATS) were on a positive run of three wins but then suffered a pair of defeats to the Winnipeg Jets and San Jose Sharks, conceding five goals in each. Despite these losses, the Stars are 6th in the Western Conference with 17 points.
Dallas had a 2-2 result after the opening period against the Sharks at home, but the visitors scored three goals to make it 5-2, and although the hosts tried to return with a couple of goals, they couldn’t force overtime in the final eight minutes. Jake Oettinger must be disappointed as he displayed the worst performance of the season and allowed five goals on just 18 shots, making miserable 13 saves. Jamie Benn, Joe Pavelski, and Jason Robertson contributed with two points apiece. This season, Robertson is the top point-maker for the Stars with 21 (G 9, A 12). Roope Hintz has 18 (G 6, A 12), while Pavelski recorded 14 points (G 7, A 7).
Jake Oettinger (5-2-0) is probable to start at the goal for Dallas against Philadelphia on Sunday. The 23-year-old is allowing 1.91 goals per game with a .931 SV% and one shutout.
RW Denis Gurianov (upper body) is questionable to face the Flyers on Sunday.
Flyers were disappointed against the Senators
The Philadelphia Flyers (7-4-2-0, 10-3 ATS) didn’t play well in the last two games against the Columbus Blue Jackets and Ottawa Senators, losing both games and allowing nine goals with only three scored in the process. Kevin Hayes opened the scoring and gave a 1-0 lead to the Flyers against the Senators at home, but that was all from the hosts offensively. Ottawa scored four to secure a 4-1 victory despite Philadelphia’s 38 shots opposite the Sens’ 27.
For the second straight game, goalie Carter Hart allowed three goals, and in this loss, he registered just 23 saves. So far in this campaign, Philadelphia has only two individuals with 10+ points. Travis Konecny leads the team with 16 (G 5, A 11), while Kevin Hayes follows him with 13 (G 3, A 10).
Felix Sandstrom (1-3-0) is going to be at the goal for the Flyers against the Stars on Sunday. The 25-year-old allows 3.07 goals per contest this year with a .909 SV% and no shutouts.
LW James van Riemsdyk (finger), C Sean Couturier (back), and RW Cam Atkinson (upper body) are out indefinitely and will not play against Dallas on Sunday.
- 18-8 in the last 26 vs. Metropolitan Division rivals

- 3-7 in the last ten vs. Western Conference opponents
- 15-36 in the last 51 games playing without rest
Dallas Stars vs. Philadelphia Flyers Pick
Philadelphia is playing the second of a back-to-back set and the Flyers are not playing well in this type of situation. Dallas has the 6th best offense in the NHL that is scoring 3.64 goals per game, while Philly is among the bottom five teams in the league in that regard with just 2.69 goals per contest. Both defenses are playing well, but I am backing the Stars to get a win and Jake Oettinger to bounce back from the worst display of the season. The Flyers are struggling offensively, and that is not going to change on Sunday.
Pick: Take the Stars to win (-133)
The Flyers scored just three goals in the last two games and considering they are facing currently the best goaltender in the NHL when it comes to goals allowed per game and 5th best in saves percentage, I don’t think they will erupt offensively here. Both teams have top-10 defenses, so a low-scoring affair is on the cards. Under is 9-3 in the last 12 H2H meetings; Under is 4-0 in the previous four H2H duels in Philadelphia, while Under is 7-3-3 in the Stars’ last 13 road games.
Pick: Go Under 6.5 goals (-110)
