Bruins vs. Oilers Pick
According to oddsmakers at YouWager, the Bruins are listed as a -125 favorite on the moneyline. The Oilers are a +105 underdog, while the total is set at 6 goals. Boston opened as a -130 favorite before the line was bet down, while the total has gone up from 5.5 goals.
As of Tuesday afternoon, 70 percent of public bets have come in on the Bruins. Online wager info also states that 54 percent of bets are siding with the under.
These two squads met back in November with the Oilers recording a 4-2 upset win. Edmonton has actually won six in a row over the Bruins, while Boston had won the previous four meetings. The over has hit three straight times and is 7-3 in the last 10 meetings.
The Bruins have won three of their last four games and are 7-3 over the last 10. The over-under has gone 5-5. Edmonton snapped a six-game losing skid with a 4-2 victory at the Avalanche its last time out. The Oilers are 3-7 over their last 10 games, while the over has gone 6-3-1.
The over is 5-2 in the last seven meetings overall and 7-3 in the last 10 meetings in Edmonton.
With the Oilers having the Bruins' number lately, it only makes me like them even more in this meeting. Boston is on the third leg of its road trip in Canada and fatigue might be setting in. After not looking great in splitting the first two games on the trip, I suspect the Bruins won't look that much better in this one.
