If you’re looking to get a bet down on this matchup, we foresee the Bruins winning the underdog. However, if you’re not as confident in the Bruins straight-up, we’d still recommend placing a bet on them to cover the puck line.

When considering the over/under line, which is currently at 5.5 goals, we believe that this game will go over that threshold, and we recommend wagering on the over.
