Money Line Pick
Boston’s large lead in the Atlantic had dwindled down with the Lightning on their heels, but the Bruins have built up some strong wins as they visit the United Center for a clash with the Blackhawks. Chicago has also moved into the conversation in the Central Division with six wins in their last 10 games. The Bruins have won four of the last six head-to-head meetings. Chicago came up two goals short in the last time Boston visited United Center. Boston has won two of the last three including their most recent clash in December. Both teams are playing quality hockey, but making a play on the Bruins money line is a must here.
Over Under Pick
Boston has been able to score at least three goals in eight of their last 10 games. And in that same span, the Bruins have also netted at least four goals in their last two games. Chicago has lacked in the scoring effort either, with plenty of over five-goal totals in their last 10 games. In fact, each of the Blackhawks’ last nine games has resulted in five goal-totals or more. With three straight head-to-head meetings resulting in six-goal totals or more, taking an over si-goal total is a must.
