The Flames are 3-7 in their last 10 Wednesday games and 1-4 in their last 5 overall. The Maple Leafs are 6-2 in their last 8 home games and 11-4 in their last 15 overall. The under is 5-2-1 in Flames last 8 overall. The under is 15-5-1 in Maple Leafs last 21 home games. The Flames are 2-6 in the last 8 meetings in Toronto. The road team is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings.

The Calgary Flames have run into a bit of a rough patch over the last week and they've been horrible in the underdog role this season. The Toronto Maple Leafs continue to pile up the victories, play some of their best hockey at home and aren't a team I'm eager to step in front of. As long as the prices are reasonable, I'm going to continue backing the Maple Leafs.
