Moneyline Pick: Ottawa Senators
Even though they are riding a season-low in production, we are backing the favoured Ottawa Senators to fight their way out of their slump and get back in the win column against the Vancouver Canucks.
Having lost five-straight games, the Senators have looked worse for wear in comparison to their hot start to the NHL season. Looking for their first win in November, the Sens will have a great shot at ending their losing ways against another team who has failed to live up to expectations early on this season.
The Canucks have simply not looked like a team ready for the playoffs. With injuries to key players as well as flat-out underperforming members of the roster that they desperately rely on for production, this was not the season the Canucks were expecting.
In this matchup, look for the Senators superior offence to hound the puck, pushing the tempo of the game and forcing the ‘Nucks to play on their heels for the entire 60-minute contest. The Sens have found ample success scoring the puck even in their recent losing skid, with their top line of Tkachuk, Stutzle, & Giroux keeping them within striking distance each game.
Back the Sens to secure their first win in over two weeks, giving themselves a boost of momentum moving forward in the season, as well as providing a boost to your bankroll as they secure your wining ticket winning Senators moneyline.
Puckline Pick: Vancouver Canucks (+1.5)
While we are rolling with the Senators to take home the win in tonight’s tilt, don’t count out the Vancouver Canucks from making things interesting down the stretch.
Beginning to show signs of life, the Canucks have won two of their last four matchups and are pushing towards finding their footing as they compete to reach the playoffs for the first time since 2020. Behind stellar play from some of the young studs on their lineup such as Quinn Hughes and Elias Pettersson, the Canucks have found themselves in the drivers seat driver’s against stiff competition.
Going up against a Senators team that has looked out of sorts over the past few weeks, look for the Canucks to stay firmly in play of stealing this game, sticking around within a goal of the Sens throughout the contest.
Back the Canucks to cover the +1.5 puckline against the Senators and net you a win on tonight’s NHL action.
Over/Under Pick: Over 6.5 Goals
Both of these teams play an “all gas, no brakes” style on the ice, putting offence at the forefront and saving defence for later in the game. With both teams in the top-15 of goals scored per game, as well as goals against average, there is sure to be some fireworks on the ice when these two teams square off.
With explosive play coming from both ends tonight, don’t expect to see a conservative game of hockey tonight. Instead, be treated to two high-powered offences going toe-to-toe as they form a shootout between themselves, finding the back of the net repeatedly, making the goal horn and the red light commonplace each period.
While the Senators are one of the top goal producing teams, the Canucks have been Over hitting machines so far this season. With eight of their 12 games reaching the Over mark before all is said and done, leaving them tied for the second-most Overs hit so far this season across the entire NHL.
Back the Senators and Canucks to reach over 6.5 total goals in tonight’s matchup, scoring big on the scoresheet and even bigger on your winnings on your Canucks VS Senators Over/Under wager.

Below you will find player prop bets that hold terrific odds so you can get some extra value from your bet slip on the Canucks VS Senators, and have even more to cheer for while watching this electric duel.
Quinn Hughes Over 0.5 Assists
The oldest of the Hughes brothers, Quinn has been exceptional for his team this season, even when things haven’t translated into wins. Hughes dynamic ability of speed and skill make him a tough cover for any player in the NHL, able to find his linemates with ease and create scoring chances out of thin air.
Using his exceptional passing vision and hockey IQ, Hughes has recorded an assist in all but one game played so far this season. Back Hughes to extend his assist streak to seven games tonight against the Senators and have him not only register an assist on the scoresheet, but on your winning bet as well.
Claude Giroux Anytime Goal Scorer
Having a resurgent season thus far, Claude Giroux has been a difference maker since arriving in Ottawa after spending 15 seasons with the Philadelphia Flyers and a brief stint last season with the Florida Panthers.
Having scored six goals already this season, Giroux is on pace to have his goal-scoring season of his career at age 34. Aging like fine wine, Giroux has played phenomenally on the Sens top-line and has been a fantastic leader on and off the ice for his club.
Back Giroux to continue scoring at an all-time high, collecting another goal on the season, and extending his current goal-scoring streak to four games in a row.
