Red Wings (15-17-6) +220 @ Penguins (18-12-6) -270
Pick: Penguins -1.5 (+105)
The Red Wings have been near the bottom of the Atlantic Division since the first puck drop of the season. The Penguins are 8-2-1 over their last 11 and are riding a three-game winning streak while Detroit has dropped two in a row and six out of seven. The Wings just don’t have the depth to keep up with all of the offensive weapons on the Penguins’ roster. F Sidney Crosby can take over a game all by himself and F Evgeni Malkin, F Jake Guentzel and F Phil Kessel will pour gasoline on the Red Wings’ fire. Pittsburgh rolls, so feel fine laying the goal line.
