I think a case could be made for either side here as Montreal’s starting to look like they’re turning the corner, but betting against Winnipeg at home has not been a profitable tactic in recent years. Instead, I’m going to side with the under as both teams have ratcheted up the defensive pressure as of late and are running tight ships while not giving up much on that end of the ice. I could easily see a 3-2 or even 2-1 game here, so give me the under.
