Chicago is 4-1 in their last 5 games as a road favorite and 1-4 in their last 5 games overall while the over is 4-1 in their last 5 games against a team with a losing record. The favorite is 5-2 in the last 7 meetings between these two teams.

I get why Chicago’s favored here as they were always going to be in this spot given Detroit’s reputation. However, the Red Wings have won three straight and there are some positive vibes going throughout this team and there may be some building towards the future going on game-by-game even with the playoffs far out of reach. The Blackhawks need this game for playoff purposes, but the value is with Detroit once again.
