Bruins vs. Avalanche Pick
The Bruins are set as a -125 favorite to win on the moneyline according to oddsmakers at sports book Bovada.lv. The Avalanche are a +105 underdog and the over-under sits at 5.5.
Boston comes in with a 1-1-0 record following a 4-0 home loss Monday versus the Avalanche. Colorado is 2-1-0 following the win over the Bruins. The season series was split 1-1 last year with the over-under also going 1-1.
In Monday's game, Semyon Varlamov made 29 saves to get the shutout victory. Nail Yakupov scored two goals to pace the Avs, while Sven Andrighetto and J.T. Compher added one goal apiece. Tuukka Rask had 19 saves in the loss for the Bruins.
Hard to see the Bruins losing two straight to the Avs, but crazier things have happened. Colorado is at home now and have a strong goalie in Varlamov, who is clearly riding a hot streak. He'll look to keep rolling in this one and we believe he will. Take the Avalanche as small underdogs.
