Moneyline Pick: Ottawa Senators

They may be at the bottom of the barrel in the Atlantic Division but the Senators still possess tremendous upside and are our pick to take home the win against the Canadiens.

With elite talent among their forward group, the Sens are a threat to light the lamp whenever they enter the offensive zone. The Senators are a fast-paced team, able to apply pressure directly to their opponents and capitalize on any mistakes made.

Facing a Canadiens team that is fairly top-heavy, reliant on their top players to produce night in and night out, the Senators will look to utilize their superior depth and skill to outclass their opponents. Bet the Senators moneyline and win alongside them on this NHL wager.

Puckline Pick: Montreal Canadiens (+1.5)

While we don’t have them capturing the win and adding two points to their season total, look for the Canadiens to stay well within striking distance against the Senators.

The Habs have flat-out been the better team this season when compared to the Senators, playing superb defence while providing ample opportunity for their top young stars to develop their skillset. Facing a Senators team that is also still in the early stages of rebuilding, this game will be far closer than many would expect.

The Canadiens have covered a +1.5 spread in four of their six games played so far in the month of December, including earning wins over top competition like the Calgary Flames and Seattle Kraken. Back the Habs to continue their impressive cover streak, staying within 1.5 goals of the Senators in tonight’s showdown.

Over/Under Pick: Over 6 Goals

Both teams enter tonight’s contest in the bottom half of the league in goals scored per game but the Over is looking like a juicy line that simply can’t be passed up on.

The Senators and Canadiens have struggled to produce consistent offence this season, but matching up against each other, look for both sides to swing for the fences and have several dangerous scoring chances generated.

Both teams are still finding their footing, giving the puck away in their own zone and making costly mistakes due to a lack of experience in the NHL. Look for growing pains to be on display but result in a high-scoring matchup as each side is equipped with dangerous goal scorers.

Get ready for a thrill in Ottawa, bet the Over on the Canadiens VS Senators and watch your bankroll rise alongside the scoreboard.

Nick Suzuki Anytime Goal Scorer (+170)

The youngest captain in Montreal Canadiens history, Nick Suzuki is living up to and exceeding the hype surrounding him since landing with the Habs.

A dynamic force on the ice, Suzuki makes all the players around him better both through his leadership as well as his brilliant skills on the ice. Able to find his teammates for slick tape-to-tape passes as a well-polished playmaker, back Suzuki to find the back of the net himself against the Sens.

With 14 goals on the season, Suzuki has proven he can make his presence known on the ice in a multitude of ways. Back the standout talent to rip one past the netminder and cash out your anytime goal scorer ticket.

Thomas Chabot Over 0.5 Points (-150)

One of the top young defencemen in the NHL, Thomas Chabot is a threat to get himself on the score sheet each time he steps foot on the ice.

A versatile athlete, Chabot is a true marathon man, able to play long shifts on the ice without generating diminishing returns. Chabot is a gifted playmaker that sees the ice well and excels at finding his linemates down the ice with crisp outlet passes.

As long as Chabot can keep his cool and not take his frustrations out on his teammates, the Over on his point total against the Habs is a terrific bet to make.

Back the former first-round pick to leave his mark on the game as well as on your NHL bet slip.
