The Senators are 12-44 in their last 56 road games and 23-54 in their last 77 overall. The Canadiens are 1-4 in their last 5 games playing on 0 days rest and 1-4 in their last 5 overall. The under is 9-3-1 in Senators last 13 overall. The under is 4-1-1 in Canadiens last 6 overall. The Senators are 3-8 in the last 11 meetings in Montreal and 7-15 in the last 22 meetings.
It's not breaking news that the Ottawa Senators are not a good hockey team, but they do have the rest advantage here and they have actually beaten the Habs in four of the seven meetings this season. The Montreal Canadiens won last night, but they've still lost five of their last eight games and they haven't had much recent success on the end of back to backs. The Canadiens should be favored on their home ice, but this line is showing them way too much respect. Give me the Senators and the massive potential payout.
