Buffalo at Detroit -160 O/U 5 
Recommendation: Under

The Detroit Red Wings continue their six-game home stand tonight as they battle the Buffalo Sabres. The Wings have lost three of their last five games at Joe Louis Arena and five of their last nine overall, while the Sabres have won two in a row after losing six straight prior to this past weekend. Detroit goaltender Petr Mrazek will get the start in this contest. He has gone 0-5-2 to the under in his last seven starts, posting a record of 3-1-3 in that span. Detroit has scored three or more goals in four of their last seven games, while Buffalo has scored eight goals in the last two games; one more than their total of goals during their six-game skid. Detroit rookie Dylan Larkin has been the main catalyst for the Wings' recent offensive spark scoring six goals in the last 10 games and leading the team with 10 goals on the year. Buffalo's first-year forward Jack Eichel has cooled off on the score sheet, picking only three goals and two assists in his last 10 games. Tyler Ennis will miss his third consecutive game due to a lower-body injury. Ennis has 10 points on the season and is a key piece to the Sabres' power-play unit. Buffalo has gone under or pushed on the total in 19 of their 24 games played this season, while the Wings have gone under or pushed in 18 of 24 games. Both clubs normally play tight defensively, and despite their recent outbursts of offensive production, I like this game to go under the total.
