Vancouver is 4-0 in their last 4 games overall and 7-3 in their last 10 Monday games while the under is 7-2 in their last 9 games following a win. Montreal is 7-15 in their last 22 games as a home favorite and 1-4 in their last 5 home games while the under is 5-1-1 in their last 7 games against a team with a winning record. The over is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings between these two teams.

I think you could make a case for either side as Vancouver’s offense has come alive but Montreal’s been one of the hottest teams in the league from the get go and I just don’t see much to split the two sides. Instead, I’m going to side with the over here as I’m expecting a fon of goals despite both sides ratcheting up the defensive effort lately.
