The Boston Bruins and the Montreal Canadiens meet in NHL action from the Bell Centre on Thursday night. Let’s dive into the odds, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.


Boston is listed as a -275 road favorite while Montreal is a +230 home underdog. The total for this game is set at 6.5 goals.

Matchup History

Boston’s 4-2 win over Montreal back on March 23rd, 2023, made it nine straight wins for the Bruins in this head-to-head matchup.


Boston is 5-0 in their last 5 division games and 41-10 in their last 51 games against a team with a losing record while the over is 6-0 in their last 6 road games. Montreal is 3-8 in their last 11 home games and 0-4 in their last 4 games against a team with a winning percentage above .600 while the over is 7-2-1 in their last 10 Thursday games.


I’m backing the Bruins -1.5 here. The Bruins are just the better team here and while they may not have a ton to play for, they’re trying to build momentum and put the cherry on top of the greatest regular season in NHL history by not taking their foot off of the gas. Montreal didn’t look good at all against the Islanders and I don’t suddenly expect that to change here. Give me the Bruins -1.5.
