The Bruins are 39-17 in their last 56 games playing on 1 days rest and 48-19 in their last 67 overall. The Golden Knights are 45-22 in their last 67 games playing on 1 days rest and 21-9 in their last 30 overall. The over is 12-5 in Bruins last 17 road games. The under is 6-2-1 in Golden Knights last 9 overall. The Bruins are 6-2 in the last 8 meetings. The road team is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings.

The Boston Bruins are not a team you should be eager to jump in front of, as they’re off to a ridiculous start and look like the best team in the league. However, the Vegas Golden Knights are not that far off, and getting them in the underdog role at home isn’t something that happens often. Also, Vegas did beat Boston on the road last week as +170 underdogs. The value is with the Golden Knights on their home ice here.
