Both Sabres and Sens Have Been UNDER Machines

Ottawa and Buffalo met just under a week ago and the Sabres managed to come away from Canada’s national capital with a 2-1 win. The Senators will make a stop in Buffalo on their way back home from Nashville looking for their first win in three games.

SHARK BITES
  • The favored team is 6-2 in its last 8 games in this matchup.
  • The Sabres are 0-5 in their last 5 games at home against teams with winning records.
  • The total has gone UNDER in the Sabres' last 7 games and the Senators' last 5 games.

Both of these teams have done an excellent job keeping the puck out of the net lately but they’ve had an equally tough time scoring. During their respective UNDER streaks, the Sens have averaged just 1.4 goals scored and the Sabres have not been much better with 1.57 goals scored.

The goalies projected to start tonight have been two of the best in the Eastern Conference with Robin Lehner posting a .925 save percentage in nine starts this year and Craig Anderson being the fifth-most profitable netminder in the NHL.

*Mike Condon will start in net for the Ottawa Senators. He recorded a shutout in his only start so far this season.

It’s tough to bet the OVER when both teams are trending so heavily the other way. My money will be on the UNDER tonight.
