The Boston Bruins are listed as -275 home favorites for this game while the San Jose Sharks are +225 road underdogs and the total for this game is set at 6.5 goals.

San Jose is 17-46 in their last 63 games overall and 12-39 in their last 51 games against a team with a winning record while the over is 4-0-1 in their last 5 games played on no rest. Boston is 39-12 in their last 51 games overall and 36-15 in their last 51 games against the Pacific division while the under is 3-1-1 in their last 5 games overall.

Pick

I get the case to be made for an underdog in some spots, but this is not one of them. The Bruins are heads and shoulders the better team to begin with, but they’ve been lockdown and straight money at home this season. I just don’t see this as a game to hop off of Boston here so give me the Bruins -1.5.
