10* NHL TOTAL 'PROFIT-STRIKER!' (THIS IS THE BIG ONE!)
Montreal vs. Boston,
12/01/2019 19:00 EDT,
Score: 1 - 3
Total: -118/+6½ Under
The set-up: The Canadiens have lost seven in a row. They've also lost three straight home games, conceding 18 goals in that span. One of those losses was an 8-1 setback vs. the Bruins. Note that Habs' netminder Carey Price though does have a sharp 27-14-5 record and a 2.53 GAA lifetime vs. the Bruins.
The pick: The Bruins are tops in scoring and on the defensive end of the ice. Last time out they rallied for a 3-2 OT win over the Rangers on Friday. In my opinion, considering how focussed I expect the Habs to be on the defensive end tonight, I look for this rematch to be dominated by the men between the nets (Note that Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask is currently 12-2-0 with a 2.10 GAA this season.) This number is high.
