Bruins vs. Red Wings Betting Odds
Boston is 50-9-5 on the year and is averaging 3.73 goals per game. The Bruins have performed well on the road this season, going 23-6-2 away from home. RW David Pastrnak leads this Bruins team scoring 86 points this season. The strength of this Boston is its ability to overcome, as they play hard all game and are relentless throughout. Boston’s offense is ranked No. 2, and their defense is the best in the league.
Detroit is 29-27-9 this year and averages 2.95 goals per game this year. They allow opponents to score 3.25 goals per game, and their defense ranks 20th in the league. Detroit is led by Dylan Larkin, who has scored 24 goals and provided 37 assists so far this season. This Red Wings team has struggled all year, and while they are above .500, their performances have been mediocre, to say the least.
The Boston Bruins are exhausted, with today’s game making it nine in a row without a day off. However, during that time, the Bruins have been 7-1. This team is tough and plays with tenacity. It will be interesting to see if fatigue plays a factor in today’s game against the Red Wings.
Boston has played well all year and battled through fatigue. Their defense is killer, and their physicality is ferocious. The Bruins can also score with ease, and against a porous Detroit defense, this game could get ugly. Give me Boston in this one. They are a complete team that is way better than Detroit.
