An Original Six matchup between the Detroit Red Wings and the Boston Bruins highlights the NHL betting board for Friday night this week.

Ravens vs 49ers Thursday Betting

The San Francisco 49ers get another chance to prove their 9-game win streak is no fluke when they visit the tough Baltimore Ravens Thursday in Week 12 NFL betting action.
