Auston Matthews leads Toronto with six goals, Nazem Kadri has three assists and Tyler Bozak has 25 shots on goal.

The Flyers are 4-1 in their last 5 vs. a team with a losing record and 7-19 in their last 26 games playing on 2 days rest. The Maple Leafs are 2-7 in their last 9 games playing on 2 days rest and 45-101 in their last 146 overall. The Flyers are 8-3 in the last 11 meetings in Toronto and over is 9-3-1 in the last 13 meetings.
We have two inconsistent teams that could use a victory here to kind of right the ship. The one constant between the Flyers and Maple Leafs is that they allow a boatload of goals, especially the Flyers who allow at least three goals in damn near every game this season. The over has also dominated the trends when these two teams meet. So, I'll side with the over in this spot.
