Since 2010-11 the Penguins have won 49, 51, 36 (lockout), 51, 43, 48 and 50 games last season. So other than the poopy Mike Johnston season of 43 wins in 2014-15, they’ve gone above 47 wins each and every season this decade with a full schedule. I would be hammering that number big time for the over for the Pens before the line moves up...For entertainment purposes only of course.

The gamble would probably be that Matt Murray holds up, and injuries to big stars don’t strike, but even though the Pens have had more than their share of injuries, getting to 47+ hasn’t been an issue in the recent past.

Any other sure winners out there? A lot of the stats people like the over on Arizona, and it is a fairly low enough number.
