Preview

Los Chicago Blackhawks hit the road and will visit the Boston Bruins on Thurday. This is the first time these teams meet this season.

CHICAGO BLACKHAWKS

The Blackhawks have lost 3 of their last 5 games and are 10-18 on the road. Chicago is 20-29-8 ranking 7th in the Central division.

Alex DeBrincat leads the Blackhawks with 33 goals and has 53 points. Patrick Kane has eight goals over the last 10 games for the Blackhawks.

Chicago are 4-6 in their last 10 games and are averaging 3.5 goals, 5.7 assists, 3.9 penalties and 8.4 penalty minutes while allowing 3.5 goals per game with an .889 save percentage.

BOSTON BRUINS

The Bruins have won 3 of their last 5 games and are 16-12 at home. Boston has a 34-18-5 record overall ranking 4th in the Atlantic Division. They're coming from a loss against the LA Kings as -190 favorites.

David Pastrnak has 57 total points for the Bruins, 31 goals and 26 assists. Jake DeBrusk has eight goals and two assists over the last 10 games for Boston.

In their last 10 games the Bruins are 7-3, averaging 3.6 goals, 6.7 assists, 3.4 penalties and 7.6 penalty minutes while giving up 2.2 goals per game with a .922 save percentage.

BETTING TRENDS

Chicago are 17-11 ATS on the road.

The total has gone OVER in 6 of Chicago's last 7 games.

Boston are 6-22 ATS at home this season.

The total has gone OVER in 4 of Boston's last 5 games.

Prediction

The Bruins have the #5 defense in the NHL and are allowing 2.2 gpg in their last 10 games. They're definitely the better team here but there's no value on the money line and they don't cover the spread at home, they've covered in only 6 of 26 games at home so far at home. The Blackhawks are covering the 60% of the time on the road. Give me the Blackhawks to cover.

PICK: Blackhawks +1.5 (-105)
