    Kings at Maple Leafs picks and predictions


    Maple Leafs 4, Kings 2.


    The MAPLE LEAFS (-175) is just under my personal limit for a moneyline play. The Leafs have been red-hot lately (6-0-1 in last 7), while posting a 39-15 record in the previous 54 games at home.

    Yes, the Kings (+150) won the first meeting in L.A., But Toronto is 4-0 in the last 4 against Western Conference teams, while going 5-2 in the previous 7 home meetings against L.A. At home.

    Puck line/Against the spread

    The MAPLE LEAFS -1.5 (+130) have not only been hot lately, they have been ticking off covers on the puck line.

    Toronto won 4-0 last time out as a slight ‘dog in Big D, and it has covered the puck line in each of the last 7 games either as a favorite or underdog.


    UNDER 6.5(-115) is the slight lean here, although the concern is whether or not Quick can keep down the high-octane Leafs offense.

    Toronto has scored 3 or more goals in each of the last 6 games, but the Under is 4-1 in the last 5 thanks to solid penalty killing and goaltending.

    The Over is on a 3-0 run for Los Angeles, but the Under did cash by a half-goal in the first meeting.
