Bruins Betting Value Without Marchand

Boston will be without leading scorer Brad Marchand against the Red Wings on Tuesday. The pesky Bruins’ agitator was suspended three games Monday for slew-footing Vancouver defenseman Oliver Ekman-Larsson. Marchand leads Boston in both goals (9) and assists (15).

Losing Marchand is significant for Boston, as he has undeniably been the team’s MVP this season. The 33-year-old left-wing had one of his best games of the season against Vancouver on Monday, picking up a goal and an assist in a 3-2 win. This is Marchand’s first suspension since 2018.

Boston is still being listed as heavy favorites in the Tuesday NHL odds despite Marchand’s suspension. They went 4-1-0 the last time Marchand was out of the lineup due to suspension. It also helps that Boston handled Detroit convincingly in the last two meetings.

Red Wings vs Bruins Recent Results

Date Home-Away Moneyline Puck Line Over/Under
11/04/2021 BOS 5 – DET 1 BOS BOS Over
02/15/2020 BOS 4 – DET 1 BOS BOS Under

03/31/2019 DET 6 – BOS 3 DET DET Over

Patrice Bergeron scored four goals against Detroit in the first meeting, so look for him to step up with Marchand suspended. David Pastrnak is also heating up for Boston after a slow start, recording three goals and 25 shots on goal in his past five games.

Red Wings Listed as Road Underdogs in Tuesday NHL Odds

Detroit will enter Tuesday’s matchup with Boston having lost their last four road games. The Red Wings had a tough road trip in mid-November in which they were outscored a combined 17-8 by Columbus, Vegas, Dallas, and Arizona. They’ve since won two straight games at home.

Detroit seems to play much better in front of their passionate fans at Little Caesars Arena as opposed to playing in tough road environments. The Wings are 7-2-2 at home but 3-7-1 on the road. Detroit is led on offense by rookie sensation Lucas Raymond (9G, 12A), while Alex Nedeljkovic has been rock-solid in goal.

Red Wings vs Bruins Projected Starting Goalies

Team Goalie Record SV% GAA
Detroit Red Wings Alex Nedeljkovic 6-3-3 .918 2.70
Boston Bruins Linus Ullmark 5-3-0 .914 2.76

Nedeljkovic gives Detroit a goaltending edge in the Red Wings vs Bruins odds. Despite his team’s struggles away from home, Nedeljkovic has posted a .917 save percentage in five road starts. Thomas Greiss was in net for the ugly first prior meeting vs Boston, as Nedeljkovic is yet to face the Bruins in his career.

Red Wings vs Bruins Prediction & Pick

Can the Bruins still have their way with Detroit despite missing their best player? They did perform well the last time Marchand was suspended, but they also had much more depth back then. Outside of the “Perfection Line”, Charlie Coyle and Taylor Hall are the only Bruins’ to reach the five-goal mark in 2021-22.

Boston is already generating the fewest amount of high-danger chances in the NHL, and now they lose their top play-driver. Defensively, however, they’re giving up the fewest number of high-danger chances. Detroit has scored just 12 goals in their last seven road games, so we should be in for a low-scoring battle Tuesday in Boston.

With Boston missing their top offensive playmaker and Detroit struggling to generate offense on the road, bet under 5.5 goals at -110 in the Red Wings vs Bruins odds.

Pick: Under 5.5 (-110)
