Bet NHL Action For Sunday, April 8, 2018


Boston opened as a -250 favorite before the line shot up further, while the over-under has moved up after opening at 5.5 goals. The Bruins are between a -295 and -340 favorite on the moneyline, while Florida ranges from +265 to +280. The total is at 6 goals everywhere.


As of Sunday afternoon, 67 percent of public bets are pouring in on Boston. Online wager info also states that 67 percent of bets are coming in on the over.


Panthers center Alexsander Barkov (lower body) is out for the season. For the Bruins, left winger Rick Nash (brain injury) and center Sean Kuraly (upper body) are both questionable. Center Riley Nash (ear) is out. Defenseman Brandon Carlo (ankle) and left winger Anders Bjork (shoulder) are out for the season.


The puck line is about the only appealing side bet on this game, so I chose instead to look at the total. The under is 2-0-1 in three meetings this season. Florida is 4-1-1 on the under in its last six games, while Boston has played unders in two of its last three. This game should see Boston get an early lead and then coast to the finish, knowing it won't have to put up a big goal total in order to record the win.
