Total: 6.50 | -107.00 Under
Both teams have been involved in several higher-scoring games of late, but this one sets up great for a couple of different reasons to finally be a lower-scoring "war of attrition" here on Saturday afternoon in my opinion.
Dallas is 31-14-5-1 overall, including 15-6-3-1 on the road, while Montreal is 21-21-4-4, including only 10-12-2-1 at home.
Dallas has won four of its last five and seen the total go OVER the number in four of five as well. It's off a 5-4 loss at Toronto last time out though and we can now expect the visiting side to double-down on the defensive end after that setback (previous to that won 2-1 at Buffalo.)
Montreal is 2-1 in its last three after a 5-2 win at Washington, but note that the Habs have seen the total go UNDER the number in eight of their last 11 off a road win as an underdog.
This number is high, the play is the UNDER.
Good luck, NP
