They went over 45 times and came in under 33 times. In their next game vs the Maple Leafs they are only winning 24% of the simulations. 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 -0.72 (includes playoff games) which ranks #30 in the league, but their rank based on points (per game) is #31. This is a relatively better home team than a road team. They are the #22 ranked team in goal differential in home games, vs #31 in road games.
