The under is 13-3 in Senators last 16 overall. The under is 7-0 in Red Wings last 7 overall. The Senators are 4-0 in the last 4 meetings.

The Ottawa Senators are playing the better hockey over the last week or so, but now they go on the road, where they’ve been fade material for years. The Detroit Red Wings are kind of due for a bounce back victory, and you’d assume they’d ind it on their home ice. The bottom line is, neither of these teams are playing well, but I’d give the edge to the Red Wings because of the home ice.
