The Ottawa Senators and Detroit Red Wings meet Tuesday in NHL action at the Little Caesars Arena.
The Ottawa Senators look for another win after winning five of their last eight games. The Ottawa Senators are averaging 2.8 goals per game and are scoring on 7.7 percent of their power play opportunities. Jean-Gabriel Pageau leads Ottawa with 11 goals, Connor Brown has 12 assists and Brady Tkachuk has 71 shots on goal. Defensively, the Ottawa Senators are allowing 3.2 goals per game and are killing 81.6 percent of their opponents power plays. Craig Anderson has given up 36 goals on 339 shots faced and Anders Nilsson has allowed 25 goals on 332 shots. The Ottawa Senators have allowed two or less goals in five of their last eight games.
The Detroit Red Wings need a win after losing six of their last nine games. The Detroit Red Wings are averaging 2.3 goals per game and are scoring on 15.7 percent of their power play opportunities. Anthony Mantha leads Detroit with 11 goals, Tyler Bertuzzi has 12 assists and Darren Helm has 35 shots on goal. Defensively, the Detroit Red Wings are allowing 3.7 goals per game and are killing 70.6 percent of their opponents power plays. Jimmy Howard has given up 38 goals on 329 shots faced and Jonathan Bernier has allowed 38 goals on 352 shots. The Detroit Red Wings have allowed three or more goals in seven of their last nine games.
The Senators are 20-43 in their last 63 games as an underdog, 4-10 in their last 14 games playing on 2 days rest and 22-45 in their last 67 overall. The Red Wings are 16-37 in their last 53 games playing on 2 days rest, 21-54 in their last 75 vs. Atlantic and 4-14 in their last 18 overall. The under is 6-1 in Senators last 7 overall. The under is 5-2-1 in Red Wings last 8 games as a favorite. The Senators are 1-6 in the last 7 meetings in Detroit. The home team is 6-2 in the last 8 meetings. The under is 8-1-1 in the last 10 meetings.
The Detroit Red Wings are the better team in terms of talent and should snap out of this losing stretch eventually, but there's no way I can lay juice with them in their current form. The Ottawa Senators are simply playing better hockey at the moment, and they've also won three of the last five meetings against the Red Wings. The Detroit Red Wings have a defensive issue and aren't winning games to lay these type of prices with at the moment. I'll take the value of the plus money with the Senators.
