Total: 6.50 | -122.00 Over
Both teams have been involved in several lower-scoring games of late, but we're expecting those trends to end this evening. We like betting on motivated teams when we're betting "overs," and that's the case here for these non-conference sides. Buffalo is just 7-9-1-0 this year, while Chicago is 5-10-0-0. The Sabres will be desperate to snap a three-game slide, but note that Buffalo has in fact seen the total go "over" the number in eight of its last 11 after three or more straight losses in a row. With each team pushing the pace of this one like we anticipate, all signs point to this total flying "over" the number sooner, rather than later!
