Detroit Red Wings

Buffalo Sabres


BUF Sabres -1.5 Point Spread

Under 6.0 Game Totals

Puck Line Pick

A big surprise here, but the Red Wings lost again in their last game. They have lost nine games in a row now and it just feels like they are not even trying. Like how are you a professional team and just get clobbered each an every night? It really does not matter who they play, because there is no way I would put my own money on this team. On the other side, is Buffalo, who are well outside of playoff contention, but they are the better side here. They have beat Detroit in both meetings this season by a combined score of 7-1. They have a decent home record of 15-9-3, while Detroit has a total of 4 road wins. You have to take the Sabres in this game on the puck line because the Red Wings are just that bad.

Over Under Pick

Just like the side, this is not a total I want to be involved with. Both teams are averaging 2.8 goals or less per game, which has dropped to 1.4 for both sides over their last five. Likewise, both defense are just terrible, each allowing well over 3 goals per game. Because of the offensive inefficiencies, I would look to the under. Not a total I would really recommend taking, but the under is the only way I could.
