Bringing NHL hockey to the state of Texas was the NHL’s goal in the early 1990′s and that’s when the Minnesota North Stars relocated to Dallas. Having not been a true expansion team, the Dallas Stars were very competitive right from the move and even took home a Stanley Cup in the 1999 season with a veteran-laden lineup. Guys like Joe Nieuwendyk, Mike Modano, Brett Hull, Derian Hatcher and Ed Belfour were the big names on that team and all were a huge part of a run back to the Stanley Cup Finals a year later.
That instant success made NHL hockey popular in Dallas, Texas for arguably the first time ever and sportsbooks have catered to that interest with plenty of betting options on Dallas Stars betting lines each season.

Betting On The Dallas Stars
The late 90′s – early 2000′s were the glory years for this Dallas Stars franchise with consecutive runs to the Stanley Cup Finals and sporting one of the best teams in the league. Yet, since then this franchise has often been labelled as one the consistently underachieves proportionate to expectations and that can create plenty of headaches for Dallas Stars fans and bettors.
Predicting NHL winners on any given night is a tough business for sure, but with the reputation the Stars have got – and rightfully earned – it makes predicting Dallas Stars betting lines that much tougher. Management for this franchise has tried different ways of producing a consistent winner, but in the early 2010′s they went back to the formula that worked for them in the early part of the century; acquiring veteran talent.
Dallas has brought in big names like Jason Spezza, Tyler Seguin, Patrick Sharp, and Johnny Oduya who have had tremendous success elsewhere. Whether or not those acquisitions lead to another Stanley Cup parade in Texas remains to be seen, but with proven talent locked up on this roster for the foreseeable future, betting on the Dallas Stars to win games more consistently should be something NHL bettors can do with confidence now.
