Buffalo vs Boston: prediction for the NHL game
The Sabres square off against the Bruins in the National Hockey League on November 25. We made predictions for this fixture, which you can find below.
Buffalo are once again on a losing streak of three games. At home, the team suffered crushing defeats to Calgary (0:5) and Columbus (4:7). Goaltender Tokaskiy had two terrible games and was substituted off in both of them. The Sabres then traveled to New York and put up a good fight against the Rangers, but they conceded a goal seconds before the final siren, thus yielding in regulation (4:5).
Boston interrupted their winning streak by losing to Calgary with a devastating score of 0:4 at home. The Bruins' goaltender Swayman managed to save only 87% of the shots on goal. Before that defeat, the Bruins were crushing their opponents, often chalking up 5 goals per game. We believe that Boston are still in great form, but they don't look as formidable away from home.
In 4 out of 5 head-to-head games, the teams scored in each period.
Boston scored first in 5 head-to-head games in a row.
The Sabres are in terrible form and keep losing both at home and away. Boston, on the other hand, can easily get two points away from home, so we suggest playing the victory of the Bruins.
Our prediction - Boston to win
We expect a high-scoring game between the two sides, who often score a large numbe rof goals in head-to-head matches. Moreover, Buffalo have problems on the defensive and concede a lot.
Second bet - total over 5.5 goals
