Senators vs Bruins Prediction

For a moneyline pick, I’m taking the Senators to pick up on a win over the Bruins and the road. With the moneyline sitting at +185, I’ll be locking in a bet on the Senators straight-up.

Our projections have the Senators pulling out a win as the underdog. But if you’re not as bullish as we are on the Senators, we’d recommend at least getting a bet down on them to cover the puck line.

When considering the over/under line, which is currently at 6 goals, we believe that this game will go over that threshold, and we recommend wagering on the over.
