The Maple Leafs are 5-2 in their last 7 road games and 0-4 in their last 4 overall. The Canucks are 5-2 in their last 7 games following a win. The under is 3-0-1 in Maple Leafs last 4 overall. The under is 9-2-1 in Canucks last 12 overall. The Maple Leafs are 3-13 in the last 16 meetings in Vancouver and 5-2 in the last 7 meetings. The home team is 21-5 in the last 26 meetings. The favorite is 19-9 in the last 28 meetings.

The Toronto Maple Leafs have been better and the more consistent team this season, so they're the rightful favorite here on the road. However, the Vancouver Canucks have shown recent signs of life and they've actually won three straight meetings against the Maple Leafs, which includes an overtime win on Sunday. The home team has also won nine of the last 10 meetings between these clubs, including each of the last seven meetings. I'll take a shot in the dark with the Canucks and the big plus money here.
