The Bruins are 8-3 in their last 11 road games and 54-20 in their last 74 overall. The Senators are 19-46 in their last 65 Tuesday games and 4-9 in their last 13 home games. The over is 13-6 in Bruins last 19 road games. The under is 16-5 in Senators last 21 overall. The Bruins are 8-2 in the last 10 meetings in Ottawa and 13-3 in the last 16 meetings. The favorite is 17-5 in the last 22 meetings.

The Ottawa Senators have shown recent signs of life, but it’s nothing that suggests they can get the job done in a spot like this. The Senators continue to run hot and cold, and playing at home hasn’t fixed those inconsistencies. The Boston Bruins have been the best team in the league from the start, and the constant winning makes them comfortably the most profitable team in the league. Give me the Bruins and the PL for max betting value.
