Best Bet of the Day 

NHL: Over 6.5 goals in Buffalo Sabres vs Carolina Hurricanes (-115, BetMGM) 

The Carolina Hurricanes and the Buffalo Sabres have both been scoring quite a few goals and taking a lot of penalties. The Hurricanes are averaging 3.42 goals for per game, while the Sabres are averaging 3.25, and they are both ranked in the top 5 for penalty minutes. The Hurricanes have a very good powerplay, so if the Sabres continue to take a lot of penalties, they should be punished for it. The teams met 3 times last season, with 2 of the meetings going over the total of 6.5 goals. Check out our full Sabres vs Hurricanes predictions.
