The over is 4-0 in Maple Leafs last 4 overall. The Flames are 3-7 in the last 10 meetings in Toronto. The road team is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.

The Toronto Maple Leafs are a team I've blindly backed for much of the season, but there's no denying they're on the struggle bus right now and that conceding defense from a year ago has showed up. The Maple Leafs can't get stops right now and it's why they've lost six of their last seven games. The Calgary Flames have played some of their most consistent hockey over the last week and they've now won two of the last three meetings against the Maple Leafs. I'll take a stab with the plus money here.
