Money Line Pick
While the Maple Leafs have the superior record, there’s some optimism for the 25-35-6 Los Angeles Kings. Sure, their 15-13-2 home record isn’t great, but neither is Toronto’s 18-15-1 away record (it’s similar with the against the spread records, as Los Angeles is 15-15 at home vs. Toronto’s 18-16 record away). Furthermore, the Kings are riding a three-game winning streak that includes victories over the Penguins and Golden Knights.
Over Under Pick
The Maple Leafs are not nearly as hot, as they finished February with a 8-6-1 record. Toronto also hasn’t been all that great as favorites (30-24-7), and while they may have topped the Kings earlier this year, the two squads have been pretty even over their last 10 games. Plus, if it’s important to you, the Kings haven’t played since Sunday (while Toronto played on Tuesday).
