This handicapping article on Anaheim Ducks vs. Boston Bruins highlights the ultimate edge & culminates with a terrific 71-39 (64.5%) betting system that’s applicable to this game tonight.

Monday Night NHL Premier Matchup
Two of the best teams in the NHL go at it tonight when the Ducks host the Bruins at the Honda Center in Anaheim. The opening face-off is slated for 10:05 PM ET. According to the NHL betting odds at 5Dimes, the Ducks are a -135 money line favorite, and the posted total is 5.0. These teams split their two regular season meetings last season which each winning on home ice.


Bruins Inconsistent Goal Scoring
The Boston Bruins began the 2014-2015 NHL campaign by scoring just 4-goals in their first 4-games. Following that 4-game offensive drought they seemed to have the issue resolved. However, starting with their 6-1 loss at Toronto on October 12th the offensive struggles have reared their ugly heads once again. Boston has scored just 14-goals combined over their last 8-games, and scored 2-goals or less in 7 of those 8-contests. Despite the offensive futility, they’ve managed to go 4-4 against the money line during that time, thanks to some solid defensive play, and stellar goaltending. Boston has allowed only 10-goals combined during their previous 6-games, and just 1 of the 6 went over the total. Tonight’s starting goaltender Tuukka Rask has gone an outstanding 4-1 this season in 5-starts versus Western Conference opponents, and compiled an excellent .952 save percentage in those outings.


Up and Down November for Ducks
The Anaheim Ducks are hoping by the calendar page turning to December, that it will promote more consistent play on their part. The Ducks were a disappointing 5-8 against the money line in the month of November, and they enter tonight losers in each of their previous 2-games. Fortunately for the Ducks, they went a superb 9-3 in the month of October, and currently find themselves tied with the Vancouver Canucks for the Pacific Division lead. They’re coming off a 6-4 loss at San Jose in their previous game on Friday. That ended a string of 3-games in a row going under the total for the Ducks, As a matter of fact, the Ducks have seen just 8 of their first 25-games of the season go over the total, and have stayed under the number in 11 of their 13-games at home.


Final Analysis
Recent NHL betting history certainly favors the visiting Boston Bruins in this exact situation. The Bruins have scored 2-goals or less in each of their previous 2-games, and as I alluded to earlier the Ducks are coming off a 6-4 loss in their last outing. Those 3 results makes for a profitable money line betting system that will be instrumental in making one of my NHL picks for today.

Any team (Boston) that’s scored 2-goals or less in each of their previous 2-games, versus an opponent (Anaheim) that allowed 6-goals or more in their previous game, has gone 71-39 (64.5%) against the money line during the past 5-seasons.
