The Senators are 18-57 in their last 75 road games and 25-54 in their last 79 overall. The Canucks are 6-2 in their last 8 games as a favorite and 9-4 in their last 13 overall. The under is 2-0-2 in Senators last 4 overall. The under is 9-3-1 in Canucks last 13 overall. The Senators are 0-5 in the last 5 meetings in Vancouver and 8-21 in the last 29 meetings. The favorite is 19-7 in the last 26 meetings. The home team is 6-2 in the last 8 meetings.

You shouldn't be running to the window to back either of these teams, but the Vancouver Canucks have been the better team this season and they've won all five meetings this season against the Senators. In fact, the Canucks have beaten the Senators in nine of the last 10 meetings overall. The Ottawa Senators just can't get out of their own way with a defense that lets them down time and time again, and they've been automatic fade material on the road dating back to last season. I'll lay the juice with the Canucks on their home ice.
