Shane’s Free Pick
People keep expecting this series to go over, but the games continue to go under. Tkachuk is going to lock down the Maple Leafs defense, even on the road. The Panthers aren’t going to run up the score here, and that will be the difference. Look for only three or four runs to be scored. Back the under.
