ROGERS' 10* TOTAL 'COACH'S CORNER!' (UNLOAD w/ CONFIDENCE!)
Montreal vs. Pittsburgh,
02/14/2020 19:00 EDT,
Score: 1 - 4
Total: -115/+5½ Over
The set-up: Both teams have been playing to lower-scoring affairs of late, but I think the conditions are finally right for more of a shoot-out this evening. The Habs fell 4-1 to the Bruins on Wednesday, while the Pens are looking for a much better effort offensively here as well after losing 2-1 to Tampa in their latest action. Overall Montreal averages 2.98 GPG, while allowing 3.03. Pittsburgh averages 3.25 GPG and it allows 2.73.
The pick: It's interesting to note as well that Montreal has seen the total go over in 13 of 23 road games this year when the total is six or higher, while Pittsburgh has seen the total go over the number in seven of ten this year after scoring one goal or less in its previous contest. I'm expecting a faster paced game to produce a copious amount of goals tonight.
