Bruins vs. Flames Pick
According to oddsmakers at YouWager, the Bruins are a -130 favorite to win on the moneyline. The Flames are a +110 underdog, while the total sits at 6 goals. Boston opened as a -125 favorite before the line was bet up a bit, while the total has risen from 5.5 goals.
As of Monday afternoon, 79 percent of public bets have sided with the visiting Bruins. Online wager info also stats that 70 percent of public bets are coming in on the over.
These two squads met only six days ago, with Boston recording a 5-2 victory on its home ice. The Bruins are 6-4 in the last 10 meetings, while the over has also gone 6-4. Boston did not start this road trip off in strong fashion as it was blown out 6-1 at Vancouver its last game. But over the last 10 games, the Bruins are a solid 7-3 and the over has hit five consecutive times after the under had previously hit five straight games. Calgary has lost three of its last five contests and is 5-5 over the last 10 games. The over has hit three straight games and is 7-3 over the last 10.
I usually have pause when taking a team to win again after beating a team so recently, especially when the first game was on its home ice. Here is no exception. With the early start time and a Calgary team focused on some revenge, I like the hosts to notch the win in this spot as a small underdog.
