The Toronto Maple Leafs and the Calgary Flames meet in NHL action from the Scotiabank Saddledome on Thursday night. Let’s dive into the odds, injuries, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.
Both Toronto and Calgary are listed at a -110 ML coin flip price with the total for this game set at 6.5 goals.
For Toronto, Matt Murray and Victor Mete are both out until early March and Jake Muzzin is out for the season. For Calgary, Michael Stone is out indefinitely with a lower body injury.
Toronto’s 5-4 OT win over Calgary back on December 10th, 2022, made it five straight games without back-to-back wins in this head-to-head matchup.
Toronto is 6-2 In their last 8 games against the Pacific division and 5-2 in their last 7 games overall while the over is 40-19-4 in their last 63 road games. Calgary is 1-4 in their last 5 home games and 1-4 in their last 5 games against the Eastern Conference while the over is 5-1 in their last 6 games against a team with a winning percentage above .600.
I’m sticking with the over here. Toronto had their better goaltending option between the pipes on Wednesday and proceeded to get rung up by the Oilers and while I do expect Toronto to be better here, I think the goaltending situation for the Leafs is still a bit questionable coming into this game. Calgary I haven’t trusted all year and believe me, I’m not going to start now. Give me the over in an offensive clinic.
