Ricky's 8* play on Under 5.5.
Key Angle: It's important to remember that Ricky never makes a bet on any game based on just one angle. In order to make the grade, all his premium picks must meet several important criteria. He doesn't share all his secrets within his analysis, instead he chooses to reveal only the angle that he feels is the most significant. Here in this game the recent history of these two teams is particularly significant.
- The under is 5-1 in the Penguins last six playoff games as a favorite.
- The under is 11-2-3 in the Canadiens last 16 playoff games as an underdog.
- The under is is 6-1 in the last seven meetings.
The verdict: This game should be a defensive battle.
