Denver vs. Boston College: Picks, Predictions and Odds

The 2024 Men's College Hockey National Championship game is finally here, and it will be between the Denver Pioneers and Boston College Eagles.

The Pioneers and Eagles are prestigious programs that have many talented players, strong coaching staffs, and future NHL players on both sides. There is lots to like on both sides, but how will the big game play out?

Denver vs. Boston College betting picks and predictions

Denver +1.5 (-120)

In what will be the final game of the college hockey season, both teams are going to completely empty the tanks. Each team has made it this far for a reason, and while the Denver Pioneers may be the underdogs, they are not going down without a fight.

Denver scores at an incredible rate, and they’ve also got strong goaltending that can keep this one close against a strong team. They will put their heart on the line, and if they lose it should at least be a very tight finish.

Over 6.0 Total Goals (-110)

Both Denver and Boston College have scored a ton of goals throughout the season and were the top two scoring teams in Division I men's hockey, with the Pioneers averaging 4.7 goals per game, and the Eagles averaging 4.6. 

On the ice we will see NHL prospects such as Cutter Gauthier, Will Smith, and Massimo Rizzo to name a few, among a host of offensive talents.

Given the stacked offensive talent on show, it is very easy to see that being the determining factor in this clash with both defenses and goaltending set to come under pressure.

This should be a high-flying game with lots of back and forth chances.

First period over 1.5 goals (-120)

Given that both teams can score goals, and plenty of them, it seems logical that either will look to make a very quick start to assume control and set the tempo. Both teams are going to be absolutely filled with energy, and we are likely to see the quickest pace of any game this season with goals the end product.

Both teams know how important it is to start a game with a lead, so they will both be gunning to gain the advantage early, and this could lead to a great first period of offense.
