NHL Sunday Picks: Bruins vs. Lightning
The squad from TD Garden is currently going through a big result crisis. The Boston Bruins have lost four out of their last five matches and are scoring a very low number of goals. The first attempt to get back on the winning tracks is scheduled for Sunday, when they will be hosting traditionally tough opponent Tampa Bay Lightning. We have worked with BettingTips4You.com to come up with the best tips for this weekend.
The bookies are currently giving a small advantage to the hosts at 7/5 price, while the visitors are backed up with slightly higher 8/5. Both coaches are having troubles with injured players; Noel Acciari and Zdeno Chara are sidelined for the home team, while Steven Stamkos, J.T. Brown, and Anton Stralman are on the injury list for the Lightning.
Without a doubt, David Pastrnak is the best individual for Boston Bruins this year. The 20-year-old has netted 12 goals so far and have had many games decided in TD Garden.
The previous head to head clashes between these two teams in Massachusetts were usually ending in favor of the hosts. The Bruins have won 20 out of 34 duels played in Boston so far, while the visitors have celebrated only seven.
The home win is our pick here at 7/5.
Edmonton Oilers vs. Arizona Coyotes
A great series of results for T. McLellan and Edmonton Oilers was interrupted by Arizona Coyotes a couple of days ago. Before that, the squad from Canada has won three games in a row, but they will have a decent chance for a revenge, as the Coyotes will be visiting Rogers Palace on Sunday. We should see a very close match up with a lot of goals.
As expected, the majority of bookmakers are favoring the home side at 9/10 rate, while the fans from Arizona will have the embrace the role of the underdogs at 27/10 rate.
It is very interesting to mention that the Oilers have failed to defeat Arizona Coyotes in their past four head to head duels. We believe the visiting side is currently in better shape and high odds for away victory are definitely worth a punt.
The away win is our choice at 27/10.
