The over is 4-1 in Red Wings last 5 overall. The over is 14-2 in Canucks last 16 overall. The home team is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.

The Detroit Red Wings have not only lost six straight games, but their defense has been getting killed during this stretch, and they’ve had zero success the last couple of years on the road. The Vancouver Canucks can light it up offensively here and there with the amount of shots thy get off, and they should be licking their chops on their home ice. Give me the Canucks and the PL for max betting value.
