The Canucks are 4-9 in their last 13 road games and 5-1 in their last 6 overall. The Senators are 5-2 in their last 7 home games and 19-46 in their last 65 overall. The under is 5-0-1 in Canucks last 6 overall. The over is 8-3-1 in Senators last 12 overall. The Canucks are 20-8 in the last 28 meetings. The home team is 6-1 in the last 7 meetings. The favorite is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings.

The Vancouver Canucks are starting to heat up and they're playing a team they've absolutely owned this season. The Canucks have won all four meetings against the Senators this season and have outscored them 19-5 during that stretch. The Ottawa Senators had a period where they provided value in the underdog role, but they're back to their losing ways and the offense really struggles in their losses. Based on past matches and their current form, I'll take the Canucks and the PL for max betting value.
