In their last 10 games the Penguins are 4-2-4, averaging 3.2 goals, 5.6 assists, 4.6 penalties and 11.2 penalty minutes while giving up 2.9 goals per game.

BETTING TRENDS

Vancouver are 5-11 SU in their last 16 games against Pittsburgh.

Vancouver are 7-1 SU in their last 8 games on the road.

Vancouver are 1-4 SU in their last 5 games when playing on the road against Pittsburgh.

Pittsburgh are 4-2 SU in their last 6 games.

The total has gone OVER in 5 of Pittsburgh's last 6 games against Vancouver.

The total has gone OVER in 6 of Pittsburgh's last 9 games at home.

 

Prediction

The Canucks have been up and down this season but they have played well lately winning 3 of their last 4 games and scoring almost 5 goals per game on that strecht. On the other hand, the Penguins have been struggling offensively but have won 4 of their last 6 games. The last time these faced each other the Canucks beat them in overtime 4-3 but I expect the Penguins to take cara if business at home.

PICK: Penguins -1.5 (+110)
