The Toronto Maple Leafs and Ottawa Senators meet Thursday in NHL action at the Canadian Tire Centre.
The Toronto Maple Leafs need a win here after losing six of their last eight games. The Toronto Maple Leafs are averaging 3.3 goals per game and are scoring on 27.7 percent of their power play opportunities. Auston Matthews leads Toronto with 21 goals, Mitchell Marner has 28 assists and John Tavares has 87 shots on goal. Defensively, the Toronto Maple Leafs are allowing 2.6 goals per game and are killing 76.1 percent of their opponents power plays. Frederik Andersen has given up 66 goals on 640 shots faced and Michael Hutchinson has given up 12 goals on 154 shots.
The Ottawa Senators look for a win after losing five of their last eight games. The Ottawa Senators are averaging 2.6 goals per game and are scoring on 14.4 percent of their power play opportunities. Brady Tkachuk leads Ottawa with 11 goals, Thomas Chabot has 16 assists and Drake Batherson has 73 shots on goal. Defensively, the Ottawa Senators are allowing 3.8 goals per game and are killing 75 percent of their opponents power plays. Matt Murray has allowed 73 goals on 608 shots faced and Marcus Hogberg has allowed 31 goals on 220 shots.
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.
