The Boston Bruins and the Florida Panthers meet in NHL action in game six of their Eastern Conference playoff series in NHL action from the FLA Live Arena on Friday. Let’s dive into the odds, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.
Boston is listed as a -170 road favorite while Florida is a +150 home underdog. The total for this game is set at 6 goals.
Florida’s 4-3 OT win over Boston in game five snapped Boston’s two-game win streak in this head-to-head matchup.
Boston is 46-20 in their last 66 road games and 40-11 in their last 51 games overall while the over is 4-1 in their last 5 games played on 1 days rest. Florida is 2-5 in their last 7 games overall and 1-4 in their last 5 division games while the under is 4-1-2 in their last 7 games following a win.
I’m backing the over here. The common trend in a lot of these recent games has been goals through and through, and I don’t look for much to be different here. The Panthers got it done with offense in game five to stay alive and they’re going to have to keep it going as I just think that the Panthers’ goaltending is starting to run out of gas. I think we got a high-scoring game here, so give me the over here.
