Pittsburgh is 4-0 in their last 4 games overall and 0-4 in their last 4 road games while the over is 4-0 in their last 4 Tuesday games. Boston is 36-15 in their last 51 games following a win and 39-15 in their last 54 Tuesday games while the under is 5-2 in their last 7 games overall.

I have gone back and forth on this one as I think that Pittsburgh needs to find more secondary scoring that’s consistent and Boston needs to keep plugging away until David Pastrnak’s return to the lineup in the coming weeks. With that said, I think we see a tight, hard-nosed, physical battle between two teams that don’t like each other a whole lot and I think the goaltending rises to the occasion so I’ll back the under as my free pick for this game but my stronger play is on the side and I have that available as a premium pick that you can find here.
