The Ottawa Senators and the Toronto Maple Leafs meet in NHL action from Scotiabank Arena on Monday night.

The Ottawa Senators will look to build off of a rare victory coming in the form of a 2-1 win over Winnipeg last time out. Brady Tkachuk leads the Senators in scoring with 9 points coming on 4 goals and 5 assists while Josh Norris has 8 points with 5 assists and 3 goals this season. Connor Brown and Thomas Chabot each have 7 points with Brown putting up 2 goals and 5 helpers while Chabot’s got 3 goals and 4 helpers. Matt Murray’s started the bulk of Ottawa’s games this year and has snagged a pair of wins with a 3.69 GAA while backup Marcus Hogberg has a win and a 4.23 GAA in 8 appearances this season.

The Toronto Maple Leafs will look to bounce back from a 2-1 loss to Montreal in their last matchup. Mitch Marner leads Toronto with 22 points including a team-high 15 points with 7 goals while Auston Matthews has a team-high 11 goals with 6 assists for his 17 points. John Tavares has 14 points with 5 goals and 9 assists while William Nylander’s got 4 goals and 8 assists for his 12 points. Morgan Rielly has 11 points with 2 goals and 9 helpers and Zach Hyman has 10 points with 4 goals and 6 assists.

Ottawa is 13-38 in their last 51 games overall and 13-48 in their last 61 road games while the under is 6-0-1 in their last 6 games as an underdog. Toronto is 4-1 in their last 5 home games and 8-2 in their last 10 games overall while the under is 13-3-1 in their last 17 games as a home favorite. Ottawa is 1-4 in the last 5 meetings between these two teams and 1-4 in the last 5 meetings between these two teams in Toronto.

With this much plus money in a rivalry game, it’s at least worth a look as these rivalry games sometimes mean just a little bit extra to the teams involved. However, this line is as big as it is for a good reason, as the Toronto Maple Leafs are arguably the best team in the league right now or at least in the top 2 or 3, while Ottawa continues to stake their claim as the NHL’s worst team right now. Toronto’s white-hot offense against an Ottawa team that couldn’t keep a beach ball out of their net right now? Yeah, easy call for me. I’ll side with Toronto -1.5 as my pick for this one.
