Will Leafs avenge early-season loss vs Flyers?

The Toronto Maple Leafs will be looking for some payback when they visit the Wells Fargo Center to face the Philadelphia Flyers tonight. The Flyers knocked off Toronto in their barn at the end of October and both teams have gone in completely different directions in the standings since. The Leafs opened as slight -105 favorites to get the victory.

SHARK BITES
  • The Leafs are 6-1 ATS in their last seven games against the Flyers.
  • The favored team is 3-1 SU in the last four games in this matchup.
  • The total has gone UNDER in four of Toronto’s last six games.

Philadelphia has a lot of talent on paper but can’t seem to put it together on the ice. The Flyers have won three in a row but not before dropping 10 straight games (yuck). And it doesn’t get any better at home for Philly backers as they’re 4-10 SU and 3-11 ATS this season and allow over three goals per game (ranked 22nd). If those stats aren’t convincing, bettors will be interested to know that Philly is 1-6 SU in its last seven games vs teams with winning records.

Toronto has started to get back on track after a recent stumble and is 5-1 SU in its last six games. The Leafs have also performed admirably on the road this season as they’re 10-6 SU and 11-5 ATS away from the Air Canada Centre. Where they may be lacking is at forward as young gun Auston Matthews is out for tonight’s game. However, it shouldn’t matter to Leafs backers much as Toronto is a perfect 5-0 SU when Matthews isn’t in the lineup this season.

The total opened at 6 for this matchup and the OVER should be considered by bettors. The OVER has hit in seven of the Flyers’ last 10 games and as mentioned, they have a hard time stopping teams at their rink. When you factor in that Toronto is the No. 1 scoring team on the road this season (3.69 goals per game), the OVER seems like a great way to cash in.
