Dallas +140

WIN

The Lightning may be the better team on paper (hence the odds), but the Stars have proven in each of their past two series that they're capable of coming out of the gate strong and dictating play in Game 1. The Stars are more rested and have the opportunity to take advantage of a Lightning team that is coming off a six-game grind with the Islanders. I like the value in Dallas.

LOSS

This is going to be a fantastic Stanley Cup, and one that could go the full seven games. But I think the Lightning wrap it up in six starting with a big win tonight. Tampa Bay is surely going to be tested by a Stars team that demolished the Knights despite being outshot in almost every game. The Lightning are fast and going to create a ton of scoring chances. The Stars won both meetings in overtime, but the teams haven't met since Jan. 27. Prior to that, the Lightning had won five straight. I don't love the price tag on Lightning but they win.
