Bruins Offer Betting Value in Road Games

Brad Marchand Boston Bruins NHL

The Boston Bruins will look for their recent run of success to continue when they visit the Philadelphia Flyers at the Wells Fargo Center Monday night.

Shark Bites
  • The Bruins are 16-5 SU in their last 21 games against the Flyers.
  • The Flyers are 6-2 SU in their last eight games at home.
  • The Bruins are 7-3 SU in their last 10 games vs the Metropolitan Division.

The Bruins, currently offered at -120 at Bovada, sit seventh in the Eastern Conference standings with 55 points and have won four of their last five games, including a 3-2 shootout win over the Columbus Blue Jackets in their most recent game.

The Bruins add plenty of value for bettors when they are playing on the road. Heading into Monday’s NHL schedule, the Bruins own the fourth-best road record in the league at 14-5-2, only behind the Washington Capitals, San Jose Sharks and Los Angeles Kings. Furthermore, the B’s currently own a +19 goal differential, which is staggeringly good (fifth in the NHL) for a team that is just seventh in its conference. Surely a sign that the Bruins have found their stride and are poised to climb even further up the standings as we get deeper into the season.

The Flyers have had a tough go of it all season long and their 13th position in the East shows just how tough its been. Philly has had a long wait to get back on the ice as well; their date with the New York Islanders on Saturday was cancelled due to the blizzard that ravaged the east coast.

Revenge could be a factor in this game as well as Philly has won each of the two meetings with Boston so far this season. There will be no doubt that the Bruins will have that fact in their back of their minds as they take the ice Monday night.
