Toronto is 18-8 in their last 26 third games of a 3 in 4 situation. The over is 3-1-1 in Toronto’s last 5 games against the Atlantic and the under is 5-2-2 in their last 9 games. Ottawa is 7-1 in their last 8 games against the Atlantic and 4-1 in their last 5 home games. The over is 8-0 in Ottawa’s last 8 home games. The home team is 9-3 in these two teams last 12 head to head meetings. 


Ottawa comes into this game on a four game losing streak and has allowed at least five goals in all four losses. Toronto has lost two of their last three games and will be on the second game of a back to back here. Ottawa has been an over machine lately at home, with the over going 8-0 in their last 8 home games. I think we are going to see another high scoring game here, but I like Toronto against a poor Ottawa defense.
