The Maple Leafs are 5-1 in their last 6 road games and 4-1 in their last 5 overall. The Canucks are 1-5 in their last 6 home games and 4-12 in their last 16 overall. The under is 5-1 in Maple Leafs last 6 overall. The under is 7-3 in Canucks last 10 home games. The Maple Leafs are 2-11 in the last 13 meetings in Vancouver and 5-1 in the last 6 meetings.

The Toronto Maple Leafs have been one of the most consistent and best teams this season, and they've lost back to back games just once. The Maple Leafs have also won three of the four meetings against the Canucks and all of those victories were decided comfortably. The Vancouver Canucks have yet to string wins together and they're still one of the worst defensive teams in the league. Give me the Maple Leafs, and I'll take the PL for added value.
