In Detroit's 73 games, the over has hit in over half of their games, going 42-29-2. So far, taking the over when the Red Wings are playing away from home has been a good bet with an over-under record of 19-14-1. On the season, 62.0% of Detroit's games have gone for at least 6 goals or more, with 42.0% of the scoring coming from the Red Wings. Coming into this game, the Hurricanes have an over-under record of 35-39. When playing at home, the over is hitting less than half the time, going 15-23. On the season, 51.0% of Carolina's games have gone for at least 6 goals or more, with 58% of the scoring coming from the Hurricanes. With a line set at 6.5 goals, I recommend taking the over, as Carolina should have no problem having a big scoring night, as their 6th rated scoring offense will take advantage of Detroit's below-average goalie group.
