The favorite is 8-2 in the last 10 meetings. The home team is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings.

The Anaheim Ducks continue to be fade material, especially on the road, as they don’t do much of anything right and that defense is pathetic. The Toronto Maple Leafs are starting to really get going, and that offense still has another gear or two it can reach. This is a battle of two teams heading in completely different directions. Give me the Maple Leafs and the PL for max betting value.
