The home team is 5-2 in the last 7 meetings.

The Carolina Hurricanes are obviously the better team here and deserve to be favored, but they've cooled off over the last week and just lost to the Blackhawks on Tuesday by a score of 2-1. The Chicago Blackhawks have had success against the Hurricanes this season and have had success in the home underdog role lately. Based on the big plus money, I'll take a shot with the Blackhawks on their home ice.
