Vancouver and Boston trending toward an OVER

The Vancouver Canucks and Boston Bruins face off on Thursday and it makes you remember the good old days. It was only six years ago these two teams squared off in the Stanley Cup final. How the times have changed. Instead it’s a matchup of mediocre teams trying to form an identity for the 2017-18 season.

SHARK BITES
  • The Canucks are 0-7 SU in their last seven games on a Thursday.
  • Boston’s Patrice Bergeron is expected back in the lineup Thursday.
  • Boston is 0-5 ATS in its last 5 games at home.

Vancouver won its first road game this season on Tuesday against Ottawa. If bettors are thinking the Canucks might steal another road win on this trip, their instincts might be right. The visiting team is 4-1 SU in the last five games in this matchup. If the puckline scares you off, Vancouver is tracking around +140 on the moneyline and would be an excellent wager.

Although no player on either team is in the top 50 in scoring this season, the OVER is a great way to line your pockets. The total has gone OVER in the Canucks’ last three games against the Bruins. The total has hit the OVER in each of Boston’s five games this season. Also, don’t expect the goaltenders to stop much either. Boston’s Tuukka Rask and Vancouver’s Jacob Markstrom rank 25th and 37th respectively in save percentage this season.

Puckline bettors could face a hard decision choosing between these two clubs. Neither team stands out as a puckline warrior as Vancouver is 3-9 ATS in its last 12 games and Boston is 1-8 in its last nine.
