This could be a shootout, as the Over is 9-3 in the last 12 Sabres home games and 6-1 in the last seven Canadiens road contests. Throw in that the Over is 6-3-1 last 10 meetings and go Over.
Both the Montreal Canadiens and the Buffalo Sabres have been going Over with regularity lately.
Montreal has played over the total in three of their last four games overall, and in six of their last seven road games. Also, the Over is 7-2-1 in their last 10 games vs. division opponents. Buffalo has played the over in six of their last seven games and in 14 of their last 17 games overall. The over is 9-3 in Buffalo's last 12 home games.
Finally, the Over is 4-1 in Montreal's last five trips to Buffalo and 6-3-1 in the last 10 meetings overall between the clubs, so look for more of the same.
Free Pick: Canadiens, Sabres to go Over 6 (-115)
