The Canucks are 7-3 in their last 10 road games and 1-4 in their last 5 overall. The Penguins are 8-2 in their last 10 games playing on 1 days rest and 1-6 in their last 7 overall. The over is 13-4-1 in Canucks last 18 road games. The under is 7-3-4 in Penguins last 14 overall. The favorite is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings. The home team is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings. The under is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings.

In a battle between two struggling teams, you have to assume the Pittsburgh Penguins are far more likely to snap out of this funk sooner than later. It also doesn't hurt that the Penguins are at home here. The Vancouver Canucks remain a mess defensively and while they've had success on the road recently, this isn't a spot where I'm comfortable backing them. Give me the Penguins and the PL for max betting value.
