OVER is the way to go in Kings vs Leafs

An unstoppable force and an immovable object. That’s the way fan bases would describe this now heavyweight tilt between the Los Angeles Kings and the Toronto Maple Leafs on Monday night. The Leafs are coming off a hard loss to their provincial rival Ottawa Senators on Saturday and their undefeated home record may be in jeopardy when the Kings come to town.

SHARK BITES
  • The total has gone OVER in 6 of Toronto’s last 7 games at home.
  • Los Angeles is 5-0 ATS in its last 5 games on the road.
  • Drew Doughty has two goals and nine points in 12 career games against the Maple Leafs.

Los Angeles, meanwhile, is taking care of business early in the season and sits atop the Western Conference at 6-0-1. The Kings also know how to play the role of favorite this year as their record is 4-0-1. The Los Angeles moneyline, which is hanging around +127, may be the safe way to go for bettors in this matchup because the Kings are 4-1 SU in their last five games against Toronto. The Leafs could need a herculean effort from the young guns if they plan to squeeze out a victory at the Air Canada Centre.

Goal scoring is rampant for these two teams early in the season and the OVER should be a no-brainer bet. The total has gone OVER in four of the Kings’ last five games while the total has gone OVER in seven of Toronto’s last eight games.

Both of these teams have shown the propensity to put the puck in the net. Losing winger Jeff Carter may affect Los Angeles’ scoring efforts in the short term but if the resurgence of Anze Kopitar and Dustin Brown continues, this team shouldn’t miss a beat. Expect a high-scoring affair with the line hovering at six goals.
