The San Jose Sharks and Toronto Maple Leafs face off on Tuesday in an NHL showdown at Scotiabank Arena. Let’s look at the betting matchup and give a free Sharks vs Maple Leafs prediction.

Can Sharks Shock the World?

The Sharks have had an awful season, but a win here would be quite the upset. These two teams just faced off on Saturday and the Maple Leafs scored four goals against them and the offense only managed one goal. The Sharks on the season are averaging 2.0 goals while their defense is giving up 4.03 goals per game. The offense and defense are both ranked 32nd in the NHL. Tomas Hertl has been the top player this season scoring 13 goals and adding 15 assists so far this season. If they fall behind early in this game it could end up being a long game where they lose again in blowout fashion. 

Maple Leafs Look for Fourth Straight Win

The Maple Leafs have won three games in a row and over the last three games they have given up only two goals total. The Maple Leafs on the season is averaging 3.49 goals while their defense is giving up 3.22 goals per game. The offense is ranked 7th while the defense is ranked 21st, although the defense has been improving. William Nylander has scored 21 goals and added 33 assists so far this season. This is an offense for the Maple Leafs that is good and against a a bad team they need to try and jump out to the early lead. 

Sharks vs Maple Leafs Betting Prediction

This game is going to be ugly from the start. Over the last three games the Maple Leafs have given up only two goals and their defense is going to step up in a big way here. The Sharks defense is giving up 4.03 goals per game and they are going to really struggle again here. The Sharks aren’t even going to score a goal here, and the Maple Leafs are going to get the job done here. Back the Maple Leafs on the puck line.
