We’re going to continue our winning ways with our NHL gambling bet of the night by taking the Ottawa Senators over the Carolina Hurricanes. Yeah. That’s right. The Senators will win.

Back from the All-Star break and looking to continue our winning way todays NHL gambling bet of the night will feature the Ottawa Senators winning over the Carolina Hurricanes. On the road.

I know. I know. The Ottawa Senators are absolute garbage right now. But with a new player they could get a nice emotional bounce.

Bet Of The Night

Ottawa Senators[+165] Record : 15-23-9, Road Record : 6-12-4, Form (Last 5) :

OTT 1-4 STL OTT 3-4 TOR OTT 1-3 MIN OTT 0-3 STL OTT 2-3 BOS

car[-190] Record : 25-20-5, Home Record : 10-7-4, Form (Last 5) :

CAR 1-4 CGY CAR 3-1 DET CAR 1-5 VGK CAR 1-3 PIT CAR 6-5 MTL

The Senators are bad. There’s no two questions about it. And with Mark Stone on IR there’s no way the Sens can get back to form. As in the form that saw the Ottawa Senators a goal away from the Stanley Cup finals a season ago.

But the Senators aren’t six losses in a row bad. They just aren’t.

For that to happen there has to be a collective breakdown to happen. Which is exactly what is happening with the Senators right now. Craig Anderson has been a shadow of his regular self. Matt Duchene is far from what the Senators thought they were getting. And Erik Karlsson, who is still having a good year, but he isn’t having a Norris year (although he isn’t too far off).

But even with all that the Senators have to win games, some games, not a tone. And this is one of them. Why?

The Carolina Hurricanes aren’t much better either. After a decent December the Carolina Hurricanes haven’t been able to continue that run in January. Over their last five games they’ve only put up four points and an 18-12 goal differential.

While not as bad as the Senators, the Hurricanes aren’t much better. They certainly don’t have the same potential as the Senators. And in no way have the same skill ceiling. Scott Darling hasn’t been the knock out success the Hurricanes thought he’d be. Leaving Cam Ward to do the heavy lifting in goal. Not a recipe for success.

There’s no advanced metrics that indicated the Sens will win tonight. But at +165 there’s a good incentive on a game that should be a lot closer than the line indicates. And so we’re biting hook-line-and-sinker.
Bet of The Night: Sens to win vs. Hurricanes @ +165
Stats So Far: (9/15) – 60%
