Bet Tonight's NHL Action

Who the Public Likes: Boston. As of Tuesday afternoon, 54 percent of public bets have sided with the Bruins. Online wager info also shows that 74 percent of bets are coming in on the over.

Who We Like: The season series was split 1-1 last season with each team winning on the road. Boston is 6-4 in the last 10 meetings, while the over-under has gone 5-5. Calgary has won four of its last five games. The Flames are still only 4-6 in their last 10 contests. The over-under is 5-5. The Bruins have also won five of their last six contests and are 8-2 in their last 10 games. The under has gone 7-3.

After seven consecutive unders, Boston has had three straight overs and has shown strong offense. But with the Bruins No. 1 in goals against and the Flames better at keeping goals from going in than scoring goals themselves, I have to side with the under here. Expect good goaltending and solid defense throughout this game.
