The Canucks are 1-4 in their last 5 games as an underdog and 1-5 in their last 6 road games. The Maple Leafs are 4-1 in their last 5 games as a favorite and 4-1 in their last 5 overall. The over is 7-3 in Canucks last 10 overall. The over is 3-1-1 in Maple Leafs last 5 overall. The Canucks are 0-7 in the last 7 meetings in Toronto and 1-4 in the last 5 meetings.

The Vancouver Canucks have lost seven straight meetings in Toronto and their defensive effort up to this point doesn't give me confidence they're going to snap that streak. The Toronto Maple Leafs are playing their best and most consistent hockey in quite some time and the offensive firepower is still there. As long as the goalies don't fall apart, the Maple Leafs are capable of winning the cup this season. Still a ways away from that conversation, I'll take the Toronto Maple Leafs and the PL for added betting value.
