Montreal is 2-6 in their last 8 games overall and 0-4 in their last 4 road games while the under is 10-2-1 in their last 13 Monday games. Vancouver is 6-2 in their last 8 games against a team with a losing record and 2-5 in their last 7 home games while the under is 8-3 in their last 11 home games. Montreal is 20-6 in the last 26 meetings between these two teams and 6-1 in the last 7 meetings between the two in Vancouver.

The Montreal Canadiens kept getting love from oddsmakers and whoopee. It finally paid off against the Jets. But how much have we made just blindly fading Montreal during that losing stretch? Enough that, and I can’t believe I’m saying this but here goes, I think Vancouver holds some value here. The Canucks just beat one of the league’s best in Toronto in back-to-back games and maybe that’s the spark to get the Canucks back on track. Thatcher Demko’s actually playing better in goal for Vancouver and the Canucks are playing with confidence again. It’s going to take more than one good game to turn me around on the Canadiens, and I’m not expecting it to be here. I’ll take Vancouver and the plus money in this spot.
