4* Free NHL Betting Pick: Under
This will certainly be an interesting game amongst these two squads. However,I will give the edge to the Carolina Hurricanes as they have played much better at home than the Canadians have played on the road lately. In other words, Carolina will assert itself on the defensive end of the ice early and often in this contest as one will witness a low-scoring game to where the home team will pick up a 3-2 victory.

Despite being a mostly average team coming down the stretch, I will have to back the Carolina Hurricanes and their defense for this contest. The under has been the play in three of the last five games, overall, for Carolina and one should certainly expect these trends to continue in this contest as the under will certainly be the strong play.
