The Maple Leafs are 5-1 in their last 6 road games and 9-4 in their last 13 overall. The Canucks are 3-13 in their last 16 Sunday games. The under is 3-0-1 in Maple Leafs last 4 overall. The under is 8-2-1 in Canucks last 11 overall. The Maple Leafs are 2-12 in the last 14 meetings in Vancouver and 5-2 in the last 7 meetings. The favorite is 5-2 in the last 7 meetings. The home team is 21-6 in the last 27 meetings.

The Toronto Maple Leafs have shown enough consistency this season to assume they're going to get back on track and snap this losing streak sooner than later. The Vancouver Canucks have won the last two meetings against the Maple Leafs, but they haven't played a game since March 24. That's three weeks not on the ice and we're sure to expect some rust on the Canucks side. The Toronto Maple Leafs should be able to get the job done here, so I'll side with them and the PL for max betting value.
