The Canadiens are 4-1 in their last 5 road games and 1-4 in their last 5 overall. The Senators are 1-6 in their last 7 home games and 14-39 in their last 53 overall. The under is 6-1 in Canadiens last 7 overall. The under is 8-2-1 in Senators last 11 overall. The Canadiens are 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in Ottawa and 13-5 in the last 18 meetings.

The Montreal Canadiens are coming off a rough week and are now 1-4 in their last five games in the favorite role. The Ottawa Senators are still a bad hockey team, but they've won three of their last six games and cashed some extremely handsome tickets as big underdogs. Usually when you try to take advantage of situations like this, the luck runs out and backfires, but the Senators at this price holds some value. I'll fade the Habs and take the road dog here.
