New York is 16-5 in their last 21 games overall and 4-1 in their last 5 road games while the under is 56-25-5 in their last 86 games as an underdog. Boston is 4-1 in their last 5 games against a team with a winning percentage above .600 and 9-3 in their last 12 Thursday games while the under is 8-0-1 in their last 9 games as a favorite. The under is 7-2-1 in the last 10 meetings between these two teams and 5-0 in the last 5 meetings between the two teams in Boston.

I get why Boston is favored at home as the Bruins have been one of the NHL’s best on home ice for quite a while. On the other hand, New York’s been red hot and it’s not often that we get the Isles at plus money like this. Instead, I’m going to side with the under as I can see this being a hard-fought, physical matchup where goals will be at a premium. Give me the under here.
