NHL Hockey Betting Odds:
Toronto Maple Leafs
The Leafs fall into this Monday night contest sporting a 40-21-4 record that ranks them 3rd overall in the Atlantic. Thanks to their 84 point tally on the season, the Maple Leafs are a whopping 20 points behind the division leading Tampa Bay Lightning. Nevertheless, the club has built up a decent 7 point lead over the 4th seeded Montreal Canadiens. All in all it’s safe to say that Toronto’s ranking isn’t at risk this evening.
Nevertheless the team will still want to try and upset Calgary on the road. And seeing as Toronto is 6-4 in their last 10 versus Calgary, some fans will undoubtedly be sticking with the Leafs. The odds however, are pegging Calgary as the favorite this evening. All in all this isn’t that shocking since Calgary is having a pretty dominant season. But at the end of the day the Leafs are no pushovers and are very capable of upsetting the Flames on the road.
Players to Watch: Mitch Marner (23 G, 55 A, 78 PTS.), John Tavares (37 G, 34 A, 71 PTS.), and Morgan Rielly (16 G, 46 A, 62 PTS.).
The Flames fly into this Monday night matchup with a 41-17-7 record that nets them 89 points on the season. That 89 point tally pegs the Flames as the best team in the Pacific. However, their standing is far from secure seeing as how the San Jose Sharks are but 3 points away from tying with Calgary. Having said that, it’s clear that Calgary cannot afford a loss at home tonight. Fortunately the odds are pegging them as the favorite here and at least they get to play at home tonight. Notwithstanding those facts, the Flames are coming off a disappointing 4-2 loss to Minnesota at home. To summarize, if Minnesota can upset the Flames at home, Toronto should be able to do the same.
Players to Watch: Johnny Gaudreau (30 G, 53 A, 83 PTS.), Elias Lindholm (26 G, 46 A, 72 PTS.), and Sean Monahan (30 G, 40 A, 70 PTS.).
