Winnipeg Jets (2.55) at Toronto Maple Leafs (1.57); Total 5.5
The Jets finally got their first win of the season, a 2-1 on Monday over a depleted Penguins squad. As for the Maple Leafs they are coming off their first loss of the season, a 3-2 (OT) loss to a red hot Avalanche team. There were reports that we might see Mason in goal for the
Thrashers Jets or the Monster in goal for the Leafs but that will not be the case for tonight’s game. Both #1 goalies (Pavelec and Reimer) are confirmed to start tonight’s game. The Leafs have to happy with the start Phil Kessel has had. Kessel has an impressive 6 goals in his last 3 games. Can Kessel find the back of the net tonight? At Bodog Online Sportsbook they have a prop bet for just this question. Kessel is paying 2.25 to score a goal in tonight’s game and 1.61 not to score a goal.
The Leafs have a game tomorrow night in Boston. Reports had Reimer starting only one of the Leafs next two games. They have decided to go with Reimer tonight vs. the Jets. They probably figure this is a much more winnable game. This alone tells us that the Leafs want this game and are not looking past it to tomorrow’s night game in Boston. The Jets have decided to go with Pavelec vs. the Leafs and he has not fared well against Toronto in his career. His record of 3-3-1 vs. the Leafs is okay but his 4.01 GAA is not pretty at all. We expect the Leafs to put a few pucks past Pavelec in this one. Teams like to win the last game of a homestand before they head out on a road trip. It makes for a more pleasant start to the trip. We like the Leafs chances of ending their homestand on a positive note. Currently the Leafs are a considerable favorite at Bodog Sportsbook (1.57). We are not big fans of betting such big favorites. Instead we are going to have a little fun with tonight’s selection. Instead we are going to take the Leafs to Score 3 Goals First for a more reasonable price of 1.87. The Leafs don’t even have to win the game for this pick to win, they just need to score three goals before the Jets do. If neither team scores three goals (which pays 4.40) than this bet is a loser. You can find this bet in Bodog’s team prop bets for the Leafs vs. Jets game. Currently Bodog has 9 player prop bets and 9 team prop bets for this game alone (a much better selection than what Proline has).
