Toronto Maple Leafs (+145) vs. Nashville Predaators (-165); Total 5.5
After a great start to the season it seems to be all slipping away from the Toronto Maple Leafs. The Leafs made a late comeback vs. the Coyotes in their last game but fell 3-2 in a shootout. The Leafs have now lost 4 of their last 5 games including losses to Phoenix, Florida, and Ottawa (not the best teams in the league). In their last 5 games the Leafs have allowed 22 goals (4.4 goals / game). And it won’t get any easier for them as they lost a few key players to injury on Tuesday. Both Grabovski and MacArthur were injured in their last game vs. Phoenix and won’t play tonight. Connolly is expected back in the linuep up though. And the Leafs are still without Reimer in goal. Scrivens will get the start tonight for the Leafs.

LOVE the Predators in this game. The Leafs are slipping and the Preds are surging. The Leafs are struggling between the pipes while Rinne is on top of his game. The Leafs are coming off an OT loss while the Preds are riding the momentum of a last second win. Everything adds up to a Predators victory in this game. Currently the Predators are a 1.60 (or -165) favorite at Bodog Sportsbook. Usually I don’t like to lay so much juice but -165 seems like a more than fair price for Nashville. For this game I will gladly lay the -165 with the Preds.
