    Sportsbook Odds Analysis

    The Maple Leafs originally opened as solid road favorites at -145, but steady action on the Canadiens as home underdogs has flipped the line. Montreal is now a -115 favorite at home while Toronto is going off at -105 on the road. The total has remained steady at 6.5 goals.

    Toronto News & Notes

    The Maple Leafs thoroughly dominated their three-game homestand against the Vancouver Canucks with three convincing wins, outscoring the Canucks 15-5. Auston Matthews alone matched Vancouver’s offensive output with five goals in three games. Matthews now leads the NHL with 11 goals and has scored at least one goal in each of his last eight games.

    Toronto is now 7-0-1 over its last eight games and 10-2-1 on the season. The Leafs appear to be one of the biggest beneficiaries of the newly aligned divisions this season; after three straight years of finishing in third place in the Atlantic Division behind the Boston Bruins and Tampa Bay Lightning, the Maple Leafs don’t have to deal with either of those teams during the 2021 regular season or the first two rounds of the postseason.

    Montreal News & Notes

    Montreal’s efforts to improve the team’s offense this offseason have paid major dividends. Free-agent acquisition Tyler Toffoli is one of the league’s top scorers with nine goals and the Canadiens lead the NHL in scoring with four goals per game. Last season, Montreal ranked 19th in the league in scoring with only 2.93 goals per game.

    The Canadiens are off to an impressive 8-2-2 start and also rank seventh in the NHL in goals against, allowing only 2.50 goals per game. With Carey Price and Jake Allen playing well in net and Montreal’s offense giving them plenty of goal support, the Canadiens look like a legitimate contender. With three of their next four games coming against the Maple Leafs, that will serve as a nice litmus test.

    Betting Pick: OVER 6.5 goals

    The first meeting between these teams this season resulted in a 5-4 overtime win for the Maple Leafs. These two high-octane offenses should produce another fun and high-scoring affair in this one.
