Blackhawks Dominant Vs Atlantic Division

The Chicago Blackhawks are a solid wager no matter the circumstance, but their value increases exponentially when they get to face a team from the Atlantic Division. That is the spot the Hawks are in when they visit the Boston Bruins Thursday evening.

Shark Bites
  • The Blackhawks are 5-2 in their last seven games against the Bruins.
  • The Bruins are 11-3 SU in their last 14 games with one day off in between games.
  • The Bruins are 2-6 SU in their last eight games against teams with a winning record..

The Blackhawks have gone 10-2-1 versus the Atlantic this season and have actually posted a record of 13-3 SU in the previous 16 meetings dating back to last season. They enter Thursday’s contest on a bit of a high as they’ve won back-to-back games against the Washington Capitals and Detroit Red Wings.

The Central Division is becoming an absolute dog fight but Wednesday’s win over the Wings gave the Hawks a two-point lead over both the struggling Dallas Stars and the St. Louis Blues; both of whom are idle tonight.

The Bruins are trying to keep up with the division-leading Florida Panthers as well as the red-hot Tampa Bay Lightning in the Atlantic, but they head in off a 2-1 win over the Calgary Flames and have actually won three of their last four overall.

If you are thinking of fading the Blackhawks because they played Wednesday, do so at your own peril. The Hawks have gone 4-1 SU in their last five games with zero days off in between.
