Bruins, Canadiens on NHL lines
The Montreal Canadiens look to continue their dominance over the Boston Bruins when the teams meet for the fifth time this season on the NHL betting lines on Tuesday night
The Canadiens have won five of the last six meetings with Boston, but did lose the last game 8-6 in February. Montreal has been red hot of late - winning four of the last five. They could be a good steal at -110 on the NHL betting lines at Sportsbook.ag at home.
Boston, meanwhile, has taken four of the last five as well, and allowed just seven goals over that stretch. The Canadiens haven’t fared quite as well, giving up 11 goals in the same number of games. Carey Price will need to be at his best to give them a solid chance of avenging their last defeat at the hands of the Bruins.

The Bruins have won six straight on the road and that should make them a strong road wager at the Bell Centre. Boston has also gone 5-2-3 in its last 10 games against division rivals and that bodes well for them on the NHL betting lines.
There’s a lot at stake for the Canadiens, as they can close the gap with division-leading Boston with a victory in this matchup. Expect the Canadiens to get a fair bit of attention on the NHL betting lines with their solid record of 20-8-6 at home. They are also a very respectable 7-2-1 at home against divisional opponents.
While both teams exploded for 14 goals in their last encounter, it shouldn’t be a trend that totals bettors should expect in a second straight matchup. The Bruins have the second stingiest defense in the league, and another offensive onslaught is not likely. UNDER bettors could make a profit with two of the league’s elite goaltenders manning the nets.
In Philly, bettors are flocking to the Oilers as huge +230 road underdogs. Why? Flyers are slumping, Oilers are playing well and the Flyers haven't beaten Edmonton in almost 10 years (0-6 since March 19. 2001). Best Oilers line was at 5Dimes as of this afternoon.
A key NHL betting matchup Wednesday night pits the Calgary Flames as a likely road underdog against Western rivals Dallas, who need the win to stay with the Flames in the standings.
Calgary has won both head-to-head matchups this season and three straight overall. The Flames are better in nearly every category than the Stars, and could be the best underdog bet on the NHL betting lines on this night.
Both teams have four wins in their last five games, but Dallas has a stronger record against conference rivals than Calgary. The Stars could get a lot of attention on the NHL betting lines with its conference record.
The Flames have exploded for 17 goals in their past four games, and this could make an OVER bet enticing for totals bettors.
