Ottawa vs Vancouver: prediction for the NHL fixture
Ottawa sit bottom of the Eastern Conference table with only 9 points in the asset. This season the Senators just can't win: at the moment, D.J. Smith's charges are on the string of five defeats, and many players are out due to injuries and Covid protocol.
The Senators lost to San Jose (3:6), Anaheim (0:4), and Los Angeles (2:4) away. In the last five away games, Ottawa conceded no less than four goals. The Senators look slightly better at home, but still concede three or four goals on average.
Vancouver are the outsiders in the West - they are occupying the penultimate line in the standings. They win more often, than Ottawa, but still on rare occasions. Recently, the Canucks were on a losing streak of four games, but they broke it against Montreal (2:1) away.
Travis Green's charges have problems on the defensive, they concede on average three goals per game. Only the first line normally scores for Vancouver, while the other lines act defensively.
On average, Vancouver concede more than 2 goals in away games.
In the last 5 games of Ottawa, more than 1 goal was scored in the second period.
The two sides are equal. Vancouver have recorded one victory more, than Ottawa, but they look terrible in away matches. In head-to-head games, Ottawa had had the upper hand at home on multiple occasions, so we think the hosts can eke a win.
Our prediction - Asian handicap (0) to Ottawa
Prediction: Handicap (0) to Ottawa

We think this can be a high-scoring game, just like many previous head-to-head matches. Both sides concede a lot, so we suggest betting on the total over.
Second bet - total over 5.5 goals
