The Buffalo Sabres travel to Chicago to take on the Blackhawks on Monday night. This is the first time they face off this season.
The Sabres have won 3 of their last 5 games but are only 11-22 on the road this season with a 23-33-10 overall record ranking 6th in the Atlantic. Buffalo averages 8.6 penalty minutes per game, the 10th-most in the Eastern Conference. John Hayden leads the team serving 82 total minutes.
Tage Thompson leads the Sabres with 49 points, scoring 27 goals and collecting 22 assists. Jeff Skinner has four goals and one assist over the last 10 games for Buffalo.
In their last 10 games the Sabres are 5-5, averaging 2.4 goals, 3.6 assists, 3.3 penalties and 9.8 penalty minutes while giving up 2.9 goals per game with a .909 save percentage.
The Blackhawks have lost 3 of their last 5 games and are 11-21 at home this season with a 24-32-10 record overall and rank 7th in the Central division. Chicago has scored 40 power-play goals, converting on 20.5% of chances.
Alex DeBrincat leads the Blackhawks with 37 goals and has 62 points. Dylan Strome has eight goals over the last 10 games for Chicago.
In their last 10 games the Blackhawks are 4-6, averaging 3.7 goals, 6.9 assists, three penalties and 6.6 penalty minutes while giving up 3.5 goals per game with an .898 save percentage.
Buffalo are 1-15 SU in their last 16 games against Chicago.
Buffalo are 0-10 SU in their last 10 games when playing on the road against Chicago.
Chicago are 2-4 SU in their last 6 games.
The total has gone OVER in 9 of Chicago's last 12 games.
Both teams are having disappointing seasons, the Sabres are terrible on the road and the Blackhawks are terrible at home but Chicago have won the last 10 head to head games at home against Buffalo. However I think the line should be a little bit more even than it is. The Sabres beat the Penguins, Canucks, Flames, Maple Leafs and Gloden Knights so why they shouldn't be able to beat the Blackhawks. I'll give it a shot with the Sabres.
PICK: Sabres ML (+145)
