The under is 3-1-1 in Sabres last 5 overall. The under is 6-0 in Penguins last 6 overall. The Sabres are 3-8 in the last 11 meetings in Pittsburgh and 15-36 in the last 51 meetings. The road team is 6-0 in the last 6 meetings. The favorite is 20-7 in the last 27 meetings.

The Buffalo Sabres remain unbackable, as they've lost 14 straight games and the offense seems to be getting worse if that's believable. The Pittsburgh Penguins have had a rough week, but they're still money at home dating back to last season and have been terrific in the favorite role this season. As I've mentioned many times in the past, backing the Sabres simply isn't an option. Give me the Penguins and the PL for max betting value.
