They are not a good value to win the East either at 100/1, 1%. The Red Wings are averaging 78.5 points per sim which makes them a decent bet to go over 76.5. At +650 the Red Wings are not a good value to make the playoffs with a 6.5% chance. They have less than 1% chance to win the division. Their average wins per simulation puts them at #15 in the East.

REGULAR SEASON RECAP AND UPCOMING GAMES

They were expected to win 39% of their games last season so their 32-40-10 met expectations. They broke even against the money line. They were down slightly (-79) against the money line. They were not good on puck lines going 49-33 (-389 loss). They went over 38 times and came in under 42 times. Based on computer simulations they only have a 36% chance to beat the Predators in their next game. The table below shows their upcoming games, their simulation based win percentage and their recent head to head record (WL, ATS, OU).

TEAM STATISTICAL STRENGTHS AND WEAKNESSES

Their record should be slightly better. Since 10/2/2018 their average goal differential is -0.59 (includes playoff games) which ranks #27 in the league, but their rank based on points (per game) is #28. This is a relatively better road team than a home team. They are the #25 ranked team in goal differential in road games, vs #28 in home games.
