You're not missing anything. No way Covers should be 100% on the Wings. I think a lot of times once the "experts" picks jump out to like a 7-0 lead on one side, the other experts pile on thinking the original 7 must know something.
I took the Wings at +138 simply because I thought it was a good value play.
Everybody likes to start from somewhere, I like to start with Jeff Sagarins computer rankings. (http://www.usatoday.com/sports/nhl/sagarin/2014/rating/) I like to look and see how teams have done against the top 10 of his rankings. In this one the Rangers are 5-11 vs the top 10, while the Wings are 5-9 for against the top 10.
If I can get + money for taking a team that is better in the top 10 and is on equal rest, I define that as a good value play and I'll take it!
I wish I would have waited, I could have gotten +156!
Good luck to you.
