Boston Bruins vs Pittsburgh Penguins Betting Odds Preview, Pick, Trends

USA TODAY Sports

Boston is 4-0 on the road and will be an underdog for the first time this season when they visit Pittsburgh. What do the hockey odds makers have to say about this NHL clash?

The last time we checked in on the Bruins and Penguins, Tuukka Rask was allowing two goals total in a four-game sweep that sent Boston to the Stanley Cup finals in June.

Before that astonishing sweep of the powerful Pens, Boston had lost eight of nine to Pittsburgh.

The Penguins opened as -140 moneyline favorites for this match on most NHL betting menus.

That makes Boston a solid underdog bet in the neighborhood of +120.

"It will be good value because the Bruins are perfect on the road so far and they visit Pittsburgh, which just snapped a three-game losing skid," said Jack Randall of OddsShark.com. It will be the first time this season the Bruins are underdogs.

The Penguins are mired in a 1-for-16 slump on the power play, but they may get a break against the Bruins, who gave up four PP goals to the Devils this week.

Loui Eriksson remains out for the Bruins, while Pittsburgh is without James Neal and unheralded blueliner Rob Scuderi.
