Bet on Red Wings vs. Senators

The Red Wings surprised many people by winning their opener and showed there is some good young talent in the mix such as Larkin and Mantha. The problem is Detroit also has many veterans who haven't produced to the level of their contract, leaving the team in flux as it opens a new arena. Ottawa will be looking for a bounceback performance after the difficult OT loss and the Red Wings are the perfect candidate, especially since Detroit won the season series a year ago.
