Carolina vs Ottawa: prediction for the NHL fixture
Carolina are in the Top-4 in the Eastern Conference table with a total of 31 points. The team had an excellent winning streak at the start of the season, but recently they suffered a dip in form. For example, after the confident victory over San Jose (6:3), the Hurricanes lost to Washington at home (2:4), and were defeated by Dallas (1:4) away. In the last 4 bouts out of 5, the Hurricanes couldn't score more than 2 goals, which is unusual - they average 3 goals per game.
Ottawa remain one of the main outsiders, sitting bottom of the table with 9 points. After returning from the quarantine, the Senators lost 5 games in a row. They are especially weak away from home, where the team prevailed in just 1 out of 9 games. Ottawa are one of the most conceding clubs in the NHL, and away they usually let their opponents score 4 or even more goals. It is unlikely that the Senators will be able to noticeably improve their position this season.
On average, Carolina score more than 3 goals in home games.
In 4 of Ottawa's last 5 games, more than 1 goal was scored in the first period.
We expect Carolina to get a landslide victory here. The Senators are one of the weakest teams in the NHL this season, plus this will be their second game in two days. We predict a confident win for the hosts.
Our prediction - Asian handicap (-1.5) to Carolina
Prediction: Handicap (-1.5) to Carolina

Almost all the games of Ottawa this season were high-scoring, because they concede a lot, but often manage to score 2 or 3 goals. We suggest betting on the total over.
Second bet - total over 5.5 goals
