The Penguins are 4-1 in their last 5 games as an underdog and 4-0 in their last 4 overall. The Bruins are 9-4 in their last 13 Thursday games and 1-7 in their last 8 games following a win. The under is 8-2 in Penguins last 10 overall. The under is 11-2-1 in Bruins last 14 overall. The Penguins are 2-14 in the last 16 meetings in Boston and 2-5 in the last 7 meetings. The favorite is 23-8 in the last 31 meetings.

The Boston Bruins have won three of the four meetings against the Penguins this season, which includes a 2-1 victory a couple of weeks ago. However, we're getting slight plus money with the team playing the better hockey. The Penguins have not only won four straight games, but you're also not used to getting them in the underdog role this season and they've taken advantage of the spots they have been underdogs. Based on the value of the line, I'll take a shot with the Penguins and the plus money.
