Toronto is 5-1 in their last 6 games overall and 12-4 in their last 16 road games while the under is 6-2 in their last 8 games against a team with a losing record. Calgary is 1-6 in their last 7 games overall and 1-5 in their last 6 games on no rest while the under is 5-1-1 in their last 7 games overall. The favorite is 17-8 in the last 25 meetings between these two teams.

I get that it can be hard to beat the same team in as many nights in a back-to-back, but the Leafs appear to be back on track while the Flames continue to lose traction and just can’t seem to get the cart back on the rails. I just think this is another game where we’re getting a reasonable price with the much better team, so I’ll lay it and play it with Toronto here.
