The Buffalo Sabres have been reeling of late but so have the Toronto Maple Leafs, and the two teams will go at it on Thursday night at the Air Canada Centre in NHL betting action.
The Sabres got past the Maple Leafs 5-4 in their only head-to-head meeting so far this year just last week, but they have lost four of their last five games. Toronto will be a likely home favorite in this contest at 5Dimes, but expect plenty of action both ways on the NHL betting lines.
Toronto has lost four of their last five, but has been in each and every game on the scoresheet. The Maple Leafs have also won three of the last four against the division-rival Sabres.
Three straight games between these teams have made winners of OVER bettors in totals betting.
The Ottawa Senators are climbing up the Eastern Conference standings and they hope to gain more ground on Thursday with a victory over the Florida Panthers in NHL betting action at 5Dimes.
Ottawa could be a slight home favorite in this contest and has won seven straight over the Southeast-leading Panthers, but this Florida team is much better and will be harder to beat.
Friday night it’s the Washington Capitals who are in search of back-to-back wins in New Jersey against the Devils in NHL betting action.
The Capitals have raised their game lately but have been unable to take it a notch higher on the road, where they are just 6-9-0 this season. Lucky for Washington, though, New Jersey is only 7-6-1 at home, where the Capitals already have a win over the Devils.
Washington has won three of the last four head-to-head, and is also in search of a third straight victory in New Jersey. Expect plenty of action for the likely road underdog Capitals in this betting matchup at 5Dimes.
Four of the last five meetings between these teams have sent OVER bettors to the payout window in totals betting.
