It’s a light night for NHL betting Monday but the matchups are between some of the league’s best teams. The game between the Boston Bruins and the Pittsburgh Penguins will draw the attention of most bettors on the NHL betting menu.
Both teams are playing great hockey with each having four wins in their last five outings. This game will feature a battle between a Penguins team that has been dynamite at home and a Bruins club that has been spectacular on the road. Oddsmakers at 5Dimes will likely tag the Penguins as a slight home favorite in this encounter.
The previous five head-to-head matchups have seen the road team pull off the victory. Tim Thomas and Marc-Andre Fleury have provided strong goaltending for their respective teams and that could give an edge to the UNDER bettor in totals betting.
The Columbus Blue Jackets will land in Montreal to play the Canadiens in NHL betting action on Tuesday night. Montreal has a losing record at home, but the Blue Jackets are dismal on the road.
Montreal will be a home favorite in this contest at 5Dimes, and the home team has taken the last three games in this head-to-head series. Six of the last nine meetings between these teams have sent UNDER bettors to the payout window in totals betting.
Philadelphia will try to win their fourth road game in five tries when they face off against the Sabres in Buffalo in NHL betting action at 5Dimes on Wednesday. The Flyers are the highest-scoring team in the NHL and could see the majority of attention on the NHL betting lines with their strong road record.
Buffalo is also a good road team, but they are underperforming with a losing record at home; in fact, eight of their 11 losses have come there. Some significant injuries could also jeopardize the odds of Buffalo winning at home in this one.
