Canadiens seek 7th straight win
MONTREAL (TheSpread) – The Montreal Canadiens hope to win a seventh straight game tonight when they host the Tampa Bay Lightning at 7:30PM ET.
Montreal is 26-11-2 on the season and 13-4-1 at home while Tampa Bay is 25-12-4 overall and 10-8-3 on the road. These two have met once this season with the Lightning picking up a 7-1 win over the Canadiens. That win snapped a four-game losing streak to Montreal. These two have pushed or hit the over in five straight meetings.
According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, the Canadiens are favored at home, as they are getting odds of -135 to win, while the Lightning is getting a money line of +115 to prevail. The over/under total for the game has been set at 5.5 goals.
Montreal has won six straight and their last five wins have come on the road. They have only been favored in three of the six games in this win streak and they have pushed or hit the under in eight of their last nine games. Tampa Bay has won five of its last six games, but they are just 1-3 in their last four games as an underdog. The Lightning have hit the over in three straight games.
