NASHVILLE PREDATORS (7-5-3, 17 pts)
at TORONTO MAPLE LEAFS (5-8-3, 13 pts)
Puck drops: Tuesday, 7:00 p.m. EDT
Line: Toronto -125, Nashville +105, Total: 5.5
Only the Islanders have a current winless streak longer than the Leafs who have failed to reach the win column in their past eight games (0-6-2). Since starting the season 4-0, the Leafs have gone just 1-8-3, yet still find themselves favored against a Predators team that enters with a two-game win streak. Nashville has defeated the defending Stanley Cup champion Blackhawks and another one of the league’s best teams so far this season, St. Louis. Vegas odds.
With the Preds being the underdog, I’m putting my money on Nashville to continue the Leafs struggles. Betting lines.
TORONTO is 3-10 ATS (-9.8 Units) in home games when playing against a team with a losing record in the first half of the season over the last 2 seasons. The average score was TORONTO 1.9, OPPONENT 2.4 – (Rating = 2*). Sports scores.
