Leafs vs. Habs Game Odds
The Maple Leafs will try to bury the Canadiens for the fourth time in five tries when they meet Saturday night, and bettors might opt to take underdog Toronto against red-hot Montreal because of that record.
Toronto is coming off back-to-back wins since losing eight straight after a solid start to the season. Jonas Gustavsson stopped 29 shots for the Maple Leafs in their win over New Jersey on Thursday, while the Canadiens were shut out by Nashville 3-0.
Montreal will need to stay out of the penalty box against Toronto, which has scored six power-play goals over its current two-game win streak. They are also four-for-four on the penalty kill in that time.
The Canadiens squandered four man advantages in their loss to Nashville, but they haven given up just one power-play goal over a five-game span.
Montreal and Toronto are at the top of the penalty killing heap in the NHL. Montreal allows the second-least amount of goals per game, and the Maple Leafs rank third in shots against and power plays allowed.
Four of the last five head-to-head games between these teams have seen UNDER bettors cash out at Bovada. And with 14 of the Canadiens' 19 games and 11 of 18 Maple Leafs games going UNDER this season, totals bettors can wager the OVER/UNDER here with a lot of confidence.
