OVER 5.5 (-110)

Tonight in Raleigh is a small puzzler. Boston should win but recently the Bruins split a home-and-home with a Chicago team that is a shadow of its former greatness, barely squeaked by Philadelphia, Detroit and Montreal all in one-goal outcomes, coming after a dismantling of a Pittsburgh team that is now showing itself to be in the playoff contention conversation. The current -125 soft favorite line indicates that the smart bettors are recognizing that without Patrice Bergeron in the line-up, Boston is not the same team. They cannot keep relying on Brad Marchand to score in overtime to bail them out and so we are going hard on the Over 5.5 here.
