Bruins vs. Kings prediction and pick

Both teams in this game have something in common and it's that they've thrived offensively through the first few games of the season. In fact, the Bruins lead the NHL in expected goals per 60 minutes of play at 4.01 while the Kings rank third in actual goals per 60 minutes of play at 4.65.

There is one thing the Bruins have that the Kings don't, which is a big reason why Boston is favored, and that's goaltending. The Bruins have allowed just 1.33 goals per 60 minutes this season, the third-best mark in the league.

Meanwhile, the Kings' goaltenders have a save percentage of just 87.83% so far.

So, with both teams being offensive juggernauts to start the year and Los Angeles struggling in its own end, all signs are pointing to the OVER being the bet to place.

Best bet: OVER 6 (+100)
