Senators Have not Been Fazed by Role as Underdogs

Beneficiaries of a questionable penalty call in extra time in Game 3, the Senators escaped with the series lead after letting the Bruins back into a contest they once led by three goals. Multi-goal leads have meant very little in this series – or these playoffs – so bettors would be wise to keep an eye on the live lines when a team goes down in this one.

SHARK BITES
  • The Bruins are 0-3 SU and on the puckline in their last 3 games as home favorites.
  • The Senators are 8-1 SU and on the puckline in their last 9 games against the Bruins.
  • The favored team is 2-7 SU in its last 9 games in this matchup.

For the third time this series, Ottawa opened as the moneyline underdog and given how tight these games have all been, I’m having a little trouble understanding the line. The Sens dominated the B’s in Game 3, despite being taken to overtime, outshooting them by 12. I expect more of the same tonight with puck-moving defenseman Torey Krug still unavailable and if Craig Anderson can tighten up just a bit, the Sens will head back to Canada’s national capital with a 3-1 lead.

Even if I thought tonight’s game was a coin flip, I’d still take the Sens. Their value is too hard to pass up – as I’ve been saying all series – and I don’t want to be on the sad side of another Ottawa underdog win.
