Bruins vs Hurricanes prediction

The Hurricanes are a great hockey team, and they're going to be favored most of the time especially at home where they're 25-9-4 on the season. The home team has also won 8 of the last 10 games between the Bruins and Hurricanes. The line is fair. However, we're getting plus money with the Bruins, something you're not going to get often. The Bruins are 21-8-9 on the road this season, and they're closing in on an Atlantic division title. The value is with the Bruins and the plus money. I'll grab the more favorable price with the Bruins on the road.
