Chicago is 6-1 in their last 7 games overall and 4-0 in their last 4 road games while the under is 5-1 in their last 6 games overall. Carolina is 4-1 in their last 5 home games and 9-3 in their last 12 games overall while the over is 4-0 in their last 4 games as a favorite. Chicago is 1-6 in the last 7 meetings between these two teams and 1-4 in the last 5 meetings between these two teams in Carolina.

Both of these teams have been solid lately, and both have had their runs because of really good goaltending. With that said, there’s still a ton of goal-scoring ability within these two teams and you have to feel that both teams are due for a defensive clunker here so I’m going to back the over in this spot.
