Boston Bruins vs. Buffalo Sabres, 7PM ET (View Matchup)
The Bruins are 6-1 in their last 7 games against Buffalo while the under has hit in 5 of the last 6 games for Buffalo against the Northeast Division. Boston has a tremendous defense this season and been a hot team on the road while Buffalo is struggling in all areas. I like a pick of Boston as a surprising underdog.
