One of the oldest rivals in the NHL saw their latest game knocked out on Family Day in Canada when team Canada Montreal hosted the Toronto Maple Leafs. A glance at the odds tells us that the Maple Leafs are strong contenders to take down their opponents tonight. The Habs played better late in the hour, winning two in a row after dropping eight in a row.
I’m not saying the discomfort was purely due to the cards, but Montreal will not accept this loss. These two teams have played once this year, and the Habs won on opening night in October. A lot has changed since then. Toronto is third in the Atlantic Division with an overall record of 32-31-3 while the Canadianiens are just 10-33-7.
Here are the odds for tonight’s match, do WynnBET Sportsbook.
As much as I want to document, Canada is a tough sell no matter how you cut it. They only have a score of 6-17-1 at home this season and 1-8-1 in the last 10 matches. Making matters even worse, they are the worst team in the NHL by a margin with a 27-22 record, meaning they take up exactly 20% of the time. Compare that to the Maple Leafs, who finished fourth in the group stage with an ATS record of 32-16. This means, while Montreal is taking up 20% of the time. Toronto is covering 66.7% of the time.
So even with their meager winning streak going, Montreal is a team with only 1/2 wins in the last 10. They ranked last in terms of goals per game (2.2), goals conceded per game (3.68) and difference (-85). They’re basically the worst team in the NHL, unable to cover spreads, and should be lackluster or ignored moving forward.
Pick: Maple Leafs -1.5 (-150)
