Reeling Canadiens Host Bruins Tuesday

Patrice Bergeron P.K. Subban Bruins Canadiens

The blazing-hot start by the Montreal Canadiens is a distant memory as the storied franchise free falls down the Eastern Conference standings. The desperate Habs will attempt to start climbing the standings once again when they host the Boston Bruins in one of hockey’s great rivalries on Tuesday night.

Shark Bites
  • The Bruins are 1-9 SU in their last 10 games against the Canadiens.
  • The total has gone UNDER in four of the Bruins’ last five games.
  • UNDER is 7-0 in Montreal’s last seven games at home.

Because of the Bruins’ hot play away from home, there is value to be had at the betting window with the B's on the road. At the time of writing, the Bruins were -115 in moneyline markets at Bovada.

The Canadiens now sit eighth in the standings with 50 points, one behind the Bruins, heading into Tuesday’s meeting. The clubs are headed in opposite directions, however, as the Habs have lost four-straight games while the Bruins take a modest two-game winning streak in La Belle Province.

The Bruins are that rare hockey team that plays better on the road than they do at home. Heading into Tuesday’s game, the Bruins own a 13-5-3 away record compared to a 10-11-2 mark on home ice. Couple that with the fact that the visitor has gone 5-1 SU in the last six games in this rivalry and it’s not shaping up to be an easy night for Habs.

If you're going with the Montreal Canadiens in this one, they were listed as moneyline favorites of -143 on most NHL hockey betting menus (such as Bovada) early today for Tuesday's contest. The over-under total was at 5 earlier at Bet365.
