Blues vs Maple Leafs Betting Prediction
Toronto has sputtered a little bit since the All-Star break, going 1-2 in three games, but they will be back at home for this one. The Maple Leafs are coming off of a loss to Ottawa, but they did beat Dallas in their last home game. St. Louis is one of the hottest teams in the NHL right now and they have been decent on the road, going 13-12-1 this year. The Blues offense has had some issues this season, but they have scored at least four goals in five of their last seven games. I think both teams are going to get their offense going and I like the over in this matchup.
