The Carolina Hurricanes remain one of the hotter teams in the league with an offense that's getting better and better during this stretch. While the Detroit Red Wings have had a win here and there over the last couple of weeks, they're not doing enough to be considered a value play in these big underdog spots. The Hurricanes have won two of the three meetings against the Red Wings this season and neither game was close. Give me the Canes and the PL for max betting value.
