NHL Hockey Betting Odds:
Toronto Maple Leafs
Unfortunately for Toronto, the Bruins were able to beat them in the divisional race. Therefore, Toronto has the misfortune of having to play Game 7 on the road. However, seeing as how Toronto is 2-1 on the road against Boston in this series, this is far from a death sentence. In fact, tonight’s NHL hockey betting odds are giving Toronto more than a fighting chance here. Nevertheless, Boston’s getting the largest favoritism from the odds out of all of tonight’s matchup.
In the end, that favoritism makes sticking with Toronto even more lucrative this Tuesday night. All things considered, Toronto has a tough task ahead of them. Not only do they have to bounce back from a 4-2 loss at home to Boston, they have to do so on the road while facing postseason elimination. Fortunately for Toronto they have a clean bill of health heading into tonight’s contest. The Bruins on the other hand, have two players (Chris Wagner and Connor Clifton) listed as day-to-day.
Players to Watch: Auston Matthews (5 G, 1 A, 6 PTS.), Morgan Rielly (1 G, 4 A, 5 PTS.), and Andreas Johnsson (1 G, 3 A, 4 PTS.).
While Boston may have the home ice advantage this evening, there’s a trend in this series that spells trouble for them. This is because no team has won back-to-back games in this series. And since Boston is coming off a win, they’ll need to break that trend to advance to the next round. Fortunately for Boston their wins in this series have been more lopsided. After all, they won Game 2 4-1, Game 4 6-4, and Game 6 4-2. Having the edge in goal differential here, it’s easy to see why the odds are sticking with Boston here.
Players to Watch: Brad Marchand (4 G, 5 A, 9 PTS.), David Pastrnak (2 G, 4 A, 6 PTS.), and Patrice Bergeron (2 G, 2 A, 4 PTS.).
