Buffalo vs Montreal: prediction for the NHL fixture
The Buffalo Sabres go against the Montreal Canadiens in the NHL action on October 15. Who will be the winner of this game? Our answer is in the prediction below.
The Buffalo Sabres got on a four-game losing streak in the preseason. They put up a fight against Pittsburgh and lost only in a penalty shootout (4:5), but there was no hope for the Sabres in the other games.
Buffalo lost to Detroit (26) and Columbus (3:5) and demonstrated poor play on the defensive. At home, the Sabres managed to outplay the Red Wings with a score of 3:1, ending their losing streak.
The Montreal Canadiens have already played their first game in the regular season, in which they yielded to Toronto with a score of 1:2. Despite scoring first, the Canadiens couldn't secure the advantage, and the opponents managed to first level the score, and then win in regulation time.
In the preseason, the Canadiens recorded only two victories in six games, beating Ottawa (2:1) and Toronto (5:2). In the game against the Maple Leafs, striker Dvorak netted a goal and also gave three assists.
In 5 head-to-head games in a row, the teams scored in each period.
Buffalo opened the scoring in 4 head-to-head games in a row.
Buffalo didn't look promising in the preseason, but they ended their losing streak and are coming into the new season on the back of a victory. We believe the Sabres can fight off Montreal at home because the Canadiens are demonstrating very poor results in away games.
Our prediction - Buffalo to win with a handicap (0)
Prediction: Handicap (0) to Buffalo

The opponents do not usually sit out on the defensive in head-to-head games, and as a result, we often see high-scoring games played between them. This is a good opportunity to bet on the total over.
