Senators vs Canadiens Game 5 Betting Odds

Published on May 9th, 2013 6:37 pm EST

The Montreal Canadiens will look to avoid elimination later tonight when they play host to the Ottawa Senators in Game 5 of their Eastern Conference series.

The Canadiens were favoured heading into this series, but, as the regular season showed us, one must never count out the Ottawa Senators.

The Canadiens now find themselves down 3-1 heading into Game 5, and they will also find themselves without the services of Carey Price, who injured himself late in Game 5. Can Peter Budaj lead the Canadiens to a win in Game 5, or will the Senators seal the deal on Thursday night?

The Canadiens are a slight favorite to win on Thursday night - let's take a look at the current betting odds:

Ottawa Senators, +1 1/2, -270
Montreal Canadiens, -1 1/2, +230

Now, the money line:

Ottawa Senators, +105
Montreal Canadiens, -125

So, according to these odds, a successful $100 wager on the Senators would yield a total profit of $105, while a successful $125 bet on the Canadiens would return a total of $100.

Finally, the over/under line is currently set at 5 goals:

Over 5 Goals, -115
Under 5 Goals, -105

Can the Canadiens put together a winning streak and make this a series, or will the Senators wrap things up on Thursday night in Montreal?
