Preview

The Boston Bruins continue on the road and they'll visit the Ottawa Senators on Saturday. These teams have already met twice this season and the Bruins got the win on both games.

BOSTON BRUINS

The Bruins have struggled lately going 1-4 in their last 5 games. They are 11-3-1 against the rest of their division. Boston has scored 136 goals and is 10th in the Eastern Conference averaging 2.8 goals per game. David Pastrnak leads the team with 24.

Boston are 3-7 in their last 10 games and are averaging 1.8 goals, 3.1 assists, 4.5 penalties and 10.7 penalty minutes while giving up 3.1 goals per game with a .901 save percentage.

The offense has struggled but the defense has been great, allowing only 2.79 goals per game.

OTTAWA SENATORS

The Senators have lost their last 3 games at home and one of those losses was against Boston.

Ottawa are 12-13-3 against conference opponents and averages 9.9 penalty minutes per game, the third-most in the Eastern Conference. Brady Tkachuk leads the team serving 68 total minutes. Tkachuk has 36 total points for the Senators, 16 goals and 20 assists. Nick Holden has 6 points over the last 10 games.

Senators are 5-5-0 in their last 10 games and are averaging 2.2 goals, 4.1 assists, 3.9 penalties and 9.3 penalty minutes while giving up 2.1 goals per game with a .938 save percentage.

BETTING TRENDS

Boston are 3-7 in their last 10 games.

Boston are 18-30 (37%) ATS this season.

Senators are 6-4 ATS last 10 games.

The total has gone UNDER in 12 of Ottawa's last 14 games.

The total has gone UNDER in 4 of Boston's last 5 games on the road.

Prediction

The Bruins are 2-0 against the Senators this season but they have struggled finding the net lately averaging only 1.8 goals in their last 10 games and they haven't been good covering the spread this season. Last 2 games between these teams went under the total so I expect a similar result here. I think the Senators have a chance to win this one at home but I'm gonna take them with the spread and the under.

PICK: Senators +1.5 (-170) and Under 5.5 (+100)
