Online Hockey Betting Odds:
Toronto Maple Leafs
The Maple Leafs fall into this evening’s contest sporting a 36-19-3 record that nets them 75 points on the season. That 75 point tally ranks Toronto 3rd overall in the Atlantic Division. Furthermore, it places them three points behind the second-seeded Boston Bruins and a whopping 19 points behind the division leading Tampa Bay Lightning. Although Toronto doesn’t have much hope of catching Tampa Bay, they still need to finish the season on a high note.
This is because the 4th seeded Montreal Canadiens are hot on their tail with a 69 point tally on the season. Unfortunately for Toronto, tonight’s online hockey betting odds don’t think they’ll be able to build on their success this evening. All things considered, this isn’t all that shocking. After all, the Leafs are 2-6-2 in their last 10 versus St. Louis. Albeit, the odds aren’t pegging them as too big of an underdog tonight.
Players to Watch: Mitch Marner (21 G, 48 A, 69 PTS.), John Tavares (33 G, 30 A, 63 PTS.), and Morgan Rielly (15 G, 42 A, 57 PTS.).
St. Louis Blues
The Blues slide into this evening’s contest sporting a 31-22-5 record that grants them 67 points on the season. By and large that 67 point tally currently ranks St. Louis 3rd in the Central Division. Moreover, it puts them 6 points behind the second-seeded Nashville Predators and 9 points behind the Winnipeg Jets. All things considered, there’s still enough time for St. Louis to claim the No. 1 spot in the division. All they need to do is continue to build on their current lengthy win streak.
Looking over the numbers however, it’s clear that the Blues are at a statistical disadvantage tonight. This is due to the fact that the Leafs rank 4th overall in scoring and 9th in defense. Simultaneously, St. Louis ranks 14th in scoring and 7th in defense. They might have a slightly better defense but it might not be enough to make up for that offensive discrepancy.
Players to Watch: Ryan O’Reilly (22 G, 38 A, 60 PTS.), Vladimir Tarasenko (26 G, 25 A, 51 PTS.), and Brayden Schenn (11 G, 28 A, 39 PTS.).
