The Boston Bruins are going head to head with the Buffalo Sabres Friday night at 7 pm in what is probably not the most interesting matchup on the weekly schedule. With that in mind, anything can become fun when you put a little money on it, which is why you might not want to pass up on this game.
In fact, if you’re a fan of betting the over/under, you might just be able to make some money off of it. Now, that’s not a guarantee or anything, but let’s look at some stats that will help you make a determination on going over or under for this game.
The Boston Bruins are 5-0 in their last five outings and are just one day removed from obliterating the Buffalo Sabres in a 5-1 blowout. What was interesting about their last matchup though was the fact that the Sabres held strong in the first two periods of the game, only to give up three goals in the final period of the game.
The Bruins are also 5-0 in their series against the Sabres, basically making this game a bit of a foregone conclusion. In fact, between the Bruins scoring an average of five points a game and only giving up one point per game in that same time period, it looks like this could make for a very enticing matchup.
As for the Buffalo Sabres, they are 2-3 in their last five matchups, including two straight losses to the Boston Bruins. The Sabres have also reached the over in three of their last five games, making it at least possible that it will happen again Friday night.
Another huge concern for the Sabres is the three straight goals they managed to give up to the Bruins in the final period of the game. Not only did that show just how unprepared the Sabres were for their games against the Bruins, but it also showed just how powerful Boston really is.
NHL Betting Trends:
- The total has gone UNDER in 9 of Buffalo’s last 10 games against Boston.
- The total has gone UNDER in 4 of Buffalo’s last 6 games played on a Friday when at home.
- The total has gone UNDER in 7 of Boston’s last 10 games played on a Friday.
- The total has gone UNDER in 13 of Boston’s last 20 games when playing as the favourite.
Free Boston Bruins Buffalo Sabres NHL Prediction:
As tempting as it may be to go with the over in this situation, especially with how powerful of a team that Boston has at the moment, all the trends actually point to this one going under. With that in mind, and the Bruins shutting out the Sabres 2-0 in their meeting on Tuesday, it looks like that’s what will end up happening again.
4* Free NHL Betting Pick: Under 5.5
Again, it’s so tempting to go over In this situation with what we saw on Thursday, but does anyone really think either team can replicate that kind of firepower a second night in a row? If nothing else, three goals in the final period of the game was a showcase of dominance by the Bruins and showed just how weak the Sabres are.
This game might even end up having another shutout, which means you are going to want to stay with the under in this contest. Then again, miracles can happen in the NHL, but there seems to be nothing that would show it could happen here.
