The Hurricanes beat the Canucks 3-2 in late October as -160 favorites. The Canes allowed just 16 shots in the win, with Frederik Andersen making 14 of those shots. The Hurricanes have won 7 of their last 10 games against the Canucks.

The Vancouver Canucks don’t come from behind to win, and they’re not a club to follow regardless. The Carolina Hurricanes have been hot at home since last season, and they usually win the games they should have won. This looks like one of those games. No excuses for canes here. Give me home team and PL for max bet value.
