MLB Betting Trends
The Ducks are 10-2 in their last 12 games versus the Eastern Conference. Anaheim is 22-8 in its last 30 games overall.
The Bruins are 20-7 in their last 27 games versus the Pacific Division. Boston is 59-26 in its last 85 home games.
An early game against a West Coast team doesn't necessarily seem fair, but the Ducks were at least in Columbus and had a couple days off. While Anaheim is playing well, however, I trust Boston more to bottle things up in the unusual start time and with the system that is working almost flawlessly in the early going this season. Go with Boston to get the job done in this spot.
