Free Buffalo Sabres vs. Chicago Blackhawks NHL Prediction:
The Blackhawks have dominated the Sabres through their previous 10 head-to-head matchups with a 9-1-0 record. The over/under has been 7-2 during the stretch.
Chicago has been able to put the puck in the net for an average of 4.30 goals per game during the last 10 while giving up 2.60 to the Sabres.
Buffalo has been able to score six goals on 30 power-play opportunities while the Blackhawks have scored on just three of 29 opportunities.
I’m really liking the total staying under six and a half in Sunday’s game. Neither team is scoring an average of over three goals per game with both of them giving up around three goals per night.
When you add in the fact that both of these teams were on the ice Saturday, I simply don’t see either of them going at full speed. I think the final score is closer to five than it is six and a half when all is said and done.
