Best Bet of the Day 

NHL: Buffalo Sabres 3-way ML over Montreal Canadiens (-120, BetMGM)
7:00 pm ET, NHL Network

The Sabres are seeking their second consecutive victory after a solid 3-1 win on Saturday against the New York Islanders. The Canadiens are undergoing a rebuild and they are a young team with a bright future. However, as it stands, they are not great. Their poor defensive play has been exposed early on and they are allowing 3.50 goals per game. They are the most-penalized team in the NHL and that will not serve them well against a potent Sabres powerplay. The Sabres are strong on home ice, and should be able to pounce on this young Canadiens team early. Check out our full Canadiens vs Sabres predictions.
