Team Outlook and Scouting Report

SEASON FORECASTS AND FUTURES PICKS

The Senators are not contenders to win the championship at 500/1, 0.2%. They do not win the championship in any simulations. They are not a good value to win the East either at 250/1, 0.4%. The Senators are averaging 72.9 points per sim which makes them a decent bet to go over 70.5. At +1500 the Senators are not a good value to make the playoffs with a 1.6% chance. They have less than 1% chance to win the division. In simulations they finish last in the East based on projected wins.

REGULAR SEASON RECAP AND UPCOMING GAMES

They were expected to win 37% of their games last season so their 29-47-6 met expectations. Money Line bettors lost -633 on them. They were not good on puck lines going 44-38 (-728 loss). 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.
