Vancouver Canucks vs. Chicago Blackhawks Predictions

Chicago is 5-1 in their last 6 games generally speaking and 4-0 in their last 4 street games while the over is 5-1 in their last 6 games against the Pacific division. Vancouver is 5-0 in their last 5 games generally and 4-0 in their last 4 home games while the over is 5-0 in their last 5 games against the Central division. Chicago is 2-6 in the last 8 gatherings between these two groups and 2-5 in the last 7 gatherings between these two groups in Vancouver while the longshot is 7-1 in the last 8 gatherings between these two groups. 

I figure you could put forth a defense for either side here as the two groups come in playing some extraordinary hockey. Be that as it may, when you have two hot groups this way, I normally prefer to attempt my karma with the group getting in addition to cash. The Blackhawks haven’t had a huge amount of karma against Vancouver, however the longshot’s had the greater part of the accomplishment in this matchup so I’ll take my risks with Vancouver here.
