The Maple Leafs are 2-6 in their last 8 games as a favorite and 2-6 in their last 8 overall. The Senators are 12-40 in their last 52 games playing on 0 days rest and 20-47 in their last 67 overall. The over is 5-1 in Maple Leafs last 6 overall. The under is 3-1-1 in Senators last 5 home games. The Maple Leafs are 4-10 in the last 14 meetings in Ottawa. The home team is 9-3 in the last 12 meetings.

The Ottawa Senators have put together a couple of wins this week and they've beaten the Maple Leafs three times out of six meetings this season. With the Maple Leafs struggles as of late, there's some value with the big plus money. However, the Maple Leafs should turn things around sooner than later and the Senators are a team that simply doesn't win games on the end of back to backs. The Maple Leafs also have an extended rest, as they haven't played since Saturday. I'll side with the road team and the PL for max betting value.
