Habs look to win consecutive games for first time this season vs Senators

Is this a sign of a turnaround for the Montreal Canadiens? After enduring their worst opening 10-game stretch since 1939, the Habs have won two of their last three games and hop on the bus to the Canadian Tire Centre to face the Ottawa Senators on Monday night. Despite the Habs’ recent success, the Sens will be the smart moneyline pick as the Habs are 1-5 SU on the road this season.

Shark Bites
  • The visiting team is 2-5 SU in the last seven games in this matchup.
  • Kyle Turris is not expected to suit up for the Senators tonight.
  • Montreal is 1-13 ATS in its last 14 games.

Ottawa’s puckline should also be seriously considered, opening at +261. Ottawa is 14-6 ATS in its last 20 games, dating back to last season. On the other side of the puck, Montreal has been an awful puckline pick for bettors, going 2-9 ATS in 11 games this season. Although the Habs may have found some recent magic, they’re still dead last in the Eastern Conference standings and can’t be trusted until they string together more puckline success this season.

The OVER looks like a great wager for bettors in this matchup. The total has gone OVER in four of Ottawa’s last five games and the Sens’ fifth-ranked offense is averaging just under four goals per game this season. The Habs, on the other hand, have been a nightmare defensively, allowing just under four goals per game and ranking 29th in the league. The total has gone OVER in six of Montreal’s last seven games and with the total opening at 5.5, the OVER seems like a shoo-in.
