When you talk about a meaningless NHL game, Senators vs Red Wings is the quintessential poster boy. Neither team is going anywhere this season, and neither team is fun to watch. Both teams get scored among the most in the league. It is just not good hockey to watch. As with all games though, there is money to be made and rooting interests to be had when you are a sports bettor!
Let’s take a look at the NHL betting odds, trends and picks for the game and give our Senators vs Red Wings prediction.

There is no other way to say it than to just put it out there that this Senators vs Red Wings game stinks. Neither team is relevant in the grand scheme of the NHL, nor do they look like they will be at any point soon. They are a combined 2-11 in their last 13 games, and ironically enough, that also happens to be the final score of the Red Wings vs Penguins game just a few nights ago.
This is the first game in a home-and-home for the Senators vs Red Wings. If Detroit is successful in at least splitting the series, it will likely be with a win tonight. Their win percentage at home is drastically higher than on the road, where they have won a dreadful nine games all year. Outside of that small fact, there is not much that separates these two teams in a betting sense.

Senators vs Red Wings Prediction
The Red Wings are a bad hockey team. The Senators are a bad hockey team. What is a bettor to do when faced with such an ugly game? A total is not really in play here since Detroit is a strong over team while Ottawa games are where over bettors go to die.
If you have a strong inclination in this game, play it how you see fit, as the moneyline is essentially the same play. We are going to take the slightly favored Red Wings and hope they can find some solace on home ice.
Our NHL betting Senators vs Red Wings prediction tonight will be Red Wings ML at BetUS.
