1 unit on Game Total UNDER 6.5 -106 (risk 1 to return 1.94) RESULT: WIN
This is a high NHL total despite a pair of above-average goalies in net. Detroit has a weak offense, scoring two goals in each of the last two games to drop to #24 in scoring, and #21 on the power play. The Red Wings get defenseman Mike Green back tonight after missing 13 games with a lower-body injury. The Red Wings are 13-8-2 with Green in the lineup and 3-14-5 without him. Detroit is 28-11-2 UNDER the total when their opponent scores two goals or fewer in their previous game, plus 68-40 UNDER on the road after playing three consecutive home games. Winnipeg had to play last night in a 3-2 loss at Minnesota. This defense is very good, at #12 in goals allowed. Winnipeg won the first matchup 2-1 in Detroit and Jets coach Paul Maurice is 31-16 UNDER the total when playing on back-to-back days. Play the UNDER on this too-high total.
