Posted by: Hilbert Mayer
Toronto Maple Leafs vs Nashville Predators 01/27/2020 – The Toronto Maple Leafs appeared to have lost their stance during their last games before the All-Star break, dropping all but one of their last six games. They will try to flip the switch on the road when they travel to Tennessee to visit the Nashville Predators as NHL action kicks off anew on Monday. The series of losses certainly played a huge factor in the offered prices in the betting lines for this match. That is the reason why it is not really surprising that sportsbooks are giving the Maple Leafs the underdog tag despite them having a better overall register in the team standings with 25-17-7 against Nashville’s 22-18-7.

Toronto Maple Leafs vs Nashville Predators 01/27/2020 Betting Odds:
Toronto Maple Leafs
Toronto Maple Leafs‘ star and points leader Auston Matthews took the break as his chance to recuperate from his injured wrist as he even backed out of the All-Star Game. He expected to come back in action in Music City. Just like Nashville, Toronto is also currently outside the Eastern Conference playoff picture, being four points behind Carolina which holds the last wildcard spot at the conference at the moment. The Maple Leafs bowed to Chicago before hitting the break but William Nylander brought something to be upbeat about as he scored his third goal in a row during the said contest which added to his tally of three goals and two assists over four-game point streak.
Players to watch: Auston Matthews (GP 49, G 34, A 23, PTS 57), Mitchell Marner (GP 38, G 13, A 34, PTS 47), William Nylander (GP 49, G 22, A 21, PTS 43).
The Predators are three wins and six points behind a wildcard spot in the Western Conference, so if they still have plans of chasing a postseason run, the players surely know that it must begin now. The team’s top goal scorer Filip Forsberg seems to love playing against Toronto as previous records reveal him being a constant thorn on the side of the Maple Leafs in their last meetings. Roman Josi has been on a tear for Nashville, leading the team in assists and total points that include a searing 16-game stretch where he collected 15 assists and 22 points.
Players to watch: Roman Josi (GP 47, G 14, A 34, PTS 48), Filip Forsberg (GP 41, G 16, A 16, PTS 32), Matt Duchene (GP 44 G 10, A 21, PTS 31).
