Bet NHL Action For Tuesday, March 6, 2018

LINE MOVEMENT

Boston opened as a -220 favorite before the line widened even further, while the total has remained at 5.5. The Bruins can be found anywhere from a -200 to a -225 favorite, while the Red Wings can be bought at anywhere from +180 to +191.

PUBLIC BETTING

As of Tuesday afternoon, 84 percent of public bets have sided with the Bruins. Online wager info also shows that 63 percent of bets are coming in on the over.

INJURY TO WATCH

Detroit has no on listed on its injury report. Boston has defenseman Matt Grzelcyk questionable with a lower body injury. Goaltender Tuukka Rask is doubtful with a lower body injury. Defenseman Charlie McAvoy, who is second on the team in ice time, is out with a lower body injury.

BETTING STRATEGY

Unders have dominated Red Wings games this season with it hitting in 40 out of 65 games. Boston is 33-29 on unders. Although the Bruins will be missing a couple defensemen and Rask, Detroit is basically incapable of putting up a high scoring total against almost anyone. And like I said recently, Red Wings goalie Jimmy Howard is always capable of keeping his team in a game with a great effort. I think the under is the right bet here. None of the three previous matchups this season has seen more than five total goals.
