Money Line Pick

Toronto will have played a game on Friday night, so this will be the second night of a back to back. That gives Montreal a small edge in terms of rest advantage. The Maple Leafs have lost two games in a row (not counting Friday’s result) so this is a game they need to get back in form. Toronto trails Carolina in the East by 2 points, so every time they come out on the ice, they need to secure points. The Canadiens are much hotter right now, going 4-1 in their last 5 games. They are however worse than Toronto, trailing the same Carolina team by 6 points for the final playoff spot. Note that the Maple Leafs are 3-10 in their last 13 meetings in Montreal. The home team is 6-2 in their last 8 meetings. The Canadiens have already beat Toronto twice this season, so I lean Montreal in this spot.

Over Under Pick

Both teams are scoring at a high rate, each averaging 3.1 goals or more per game. They have continued to score goals, but have allowed goals for that matter, over their last five games. The over is 5-0 in the last five meetings, including the two games this season that ended 6-5 and 5-2. I do not trust either defense, so I have to lean the over here.
