Through eleven games, Boston has been a public underdog, in terms of moneyline betting trends, only once. More importantly, fading the Bruins has been very profitable for those following a contrarian betting system.
In seven games this season, Boston’s opponents have received fewer than 40% of moneyline wagers, six of which resulted in Bruins losses.
