Ottawa Senators vs Vancouver Canucks 01/27/2021 Betting Odds:
It was as if nothing was going in favor of the Ottawa Senators on Monday night. Their body language spoke for itself as they were left helpless while the Canucks bossed around them in the last game. The loss has sent Ottawa reeling to their fifth straight loss of the NHL season with an overall record of 1-4-1, still at the bottom of the division. The awful trend might force coach D.J. Smith to tweak his rotation and make further adjustments to his game plan. Being able to pull off a stunning upset on Wednesday would be a huge boost for the Senators and it could set them up for a potential dagger for the third game against the Canucks. But Smith and his wards know that the goal won’t be served in front of them as it would take a complete team effort to pull the rug from under the Canucks.
Players to watch: N. Zaitsev D (G 0, A 5, PTS 5), B. Tkachuk LW (G 2, A 2, PTS 4), J. Norris C (G 1, A 3, PTS 4)
It was Brandon Sutter’s night. The alternate captain of the Canucks played as a man possessed on Monday as he posted his first career NHL hat trick and his first multi-goal effort since Oct. 9, 2019. He was an absolute nightmare for the Senators’ defense, scoring on each period to reach the rare three-goal milestone. Vancouver fed off the 31-year-old’s explosive night and provided him the needed lift on both ends to secure the much-needed victory. The win has lifted the Canucks in the North standings, now with a 3-5-0 card to tie Edmonton in the middle of the race. The Canucks know that they have the Senators against the ropes after their last win, but they also recognize that too much complacency might still spoil their bid for back-to-back victories.
Players to watch: B. Horvat C G 5 A 5 PTS 10, Q. Hughes D G 1 A 6 PTS 7, B. Boeser RW G 4 A 2 PTS 6

Senators vs Canucks Betting Picks
The Canucks are too much to handle for the Senators as evidenced by the result of Monday’s clash. The second straight showdown will not be any much different. Expect Vancouver to continue imposing their dominance on Ottawa right from the get-go and register another convincing win. The Canucks’ advantage mentally will play a significant role in taking the fight away from the visitors. It should be easy to count another one-sided victory in favor of Vancouver.
Score Prediction: Senators 2, Canucks 5.
