NHL Hockey - Preview
If familiarity breeds contempt, there should be animosity aplenty on Thursday when the Montreal Canadiens and the Ottawa Senators meet at Canadian Tire Centre.
Last time out for Montreal, they were a 3-2 loser as they battled the Blues at home. Moneyline bettors who got the Blues at -115 were rewarded, while the 5 combined goals moved the game PUSH for totals bettors.
Ottawa won its last outing, a 4-1 result against the Blue Jackets on November 5. Bettors who backed the Senators at +105 on the moneyline won on the day, and the total score (5) sent UNDER bettors to the payout window.
