Boston Bruins at Montreal Canadiens Odds: Bruins -303, Canadiens +245

Over/Under Odds: 6

Boston Bruins at Montreal Canadiens Pick: Boston Bruins-303, Under 6

Odds from 

I think this game will be a one sided affair. The Canadiens have really struggled on the season so far and have not really looked impressive when pushed by a powerful offense. I look for the Canadiens defense to crack under what I think will be constant offensive pressure from Boston. However, I do not see Montreal doing enough to secure the over on the total in this game. With that being said, the Bruins will win in this game here and the total should go under.
