Carolina is 4-0 in their last 4 road games and 7-0 in their last 7 games following a win while the over is 11-4-1 in their last 16 games against a team with a losing record. Detroit is 16-35 in their last 51 home games and 18-62 in their last 80 games overall while the over is 6-2 in their last 8 games overall. Carolina is 6-1 in the last 7 meetings between these two teams.

The plus money with Detroit’s still worth a look as the Wings keep battling in spots where they should be down and out for the count. However, Carolina didn’t look their best in the first meeting and I think the ‘Canes really show up here and send a message to Detroit. I just don’t see the Red Wings hanging around for long one Carolina gets going, so I’ll back Carolina on the puck line in this one.
