Money Line Pick
The Pittsburgh Penguins visit TD Garden with a chance to make some real noise in the Eastern Conference. The Bruins are looking to get back on the winning track, as they have lost two straight games heading into their home clash against the Penguins. Pittsburgh is just 6-12 in their last 18 head-to-head games against Boston. The Bruins have kind of lost their mojo and have really struggled against teams from the Metropolitan Division recently. The last 10 head-to-head meetings have resulted in five victories for both Pittsburgh and Boston. The Penguins haven’t had the best of luck in recent visits to TD Garden, including losses in their last two games played there. This marks the second meeting between the teams this season, and second to be played in Boston. The Bruins have been hard to beat at home, and they are a must back in this match-up. Do so with confidence.
Over Under Pick
Pittsburgh has seen a high amount of over totals in recent games, and their 3.5 goal average per game hasn’t deflated those scores. Boston even with a vast amount of troubles has also scored over three goals per game this season. The Bruins have had three really high scoring goal totals in their last five games. Those three games featured eight or more goal totals. Each of the last three head-to-head clashes featured six-goal totals or more. Their first meeting this season was a back and forth battle, which resulted in a Boston 6-4 win. Something similar could be in store for this match-up which is why a play on the over six total is a must with high confidence.
