Bold Predictions for Bruins vs. Lightning
At least 7 goals will be scored (+100)
It’s not the most bold prediction in the world, but the OVER on the 6.5 goal total in this game is set at +100 so it is a bit of an underdog bet compared to the UNDER. The Bruins may need to get into an offensive shootout to win tonight.
The Lightning have the fourth-highest shooting percentage in the NHL this season, finding the back of the net on 11.75% of their shots on goal. They also score an average of 3.47 goals per 60 minutes of play.
We could be in for a high-scoring affair tonight.
Pavel Zacha will score (+230)
Despite being the No. 1 center on the team playing alongside Brad Marchand and David Pastrnak, Pavel Zacha’s odds to score are set at +230, which provides plenty of value.
Sure, he’s not the primary goal-scorer on that line, that title belongs to Pastrnak, but just playing alongside the two best players the Bruins have to offer is going to give him enough chances to make a +230 bet worthwhile.
He’s notched six goals already this season and has scored in two of his last three games.
Brad Marchand will record at least 2 assists (+365)
Brad Marchand has turned into an assist-machine lately, recording six apples over his last four games including two in the Bruins’ latest game against the Canadiens. I don’t know if it’s their gameplan as a team, or he’s just improved his ability to set up his teammates, but we should take advantage of this version of Marchand while we can.
If you want to get even more bold, you can bet on him to record at least three assists at +1150 odds.
