Odds

Boston is a -175 road favorite while Buffalo is a +145 home underdog. The total for this game is set at 6.5 goals.

Injuries

Matchup History

Boston’s 7-1 win back on March 2nd, 2023, made it 8 wins in the last 9 head-to-head meetings between these two teams.

Trends

Boston is 7-2 in their last 9 games played on no rest and 44-12 in their last 56 games against a team with a losing record while the over is 10-4-1 in their last 15 games played on no rest. Buffalo is 1-6 in their last 7 games overall and 1-5 in their last 6 games played on 1 days rest while the over is 4-1-1 in their last 6 division games.

Pick

I’m backing Boston here. The Bruins are on the back-to-back, but they’ve played well on the second half of a back-to-back for some time now, and they looked really good on the first half against the Wild on Saturday. Buffalo falling apart against the Flyers to me was a sign of their youth and inexperience, being unable to show up when they needed a result, and at home where they’ve been less effective this season, I think the Bruins take advantage and make the Sabres pay. Give me Boston here.
