The Toronto Maple Leafs and the Florida Panthers meet in game three of their Eastern Conference semi-final matchup in NHL action from the FLA Live Arena on Sunday night. Let’s dive into the odds, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.


Toronto is a -130 road favorite while Florida is a +110 home underdog. The total for this game is set at 6.5 goals.

Matchup History

Florida’s 3-2 win in game two made it three wins in the last four head-to-head meetings with Toronto.


Toronto is 6-0 in their last 6 road games and 1-4 in their last 5 games played on 2 days rest while the under is 4-0 in their last 4 games overall. Florida is 5-0 in their last 5 division games and 72-33 in their last 105 home games while the over is 6-1 in their last 7 Sunday games.


I’m siding with the under here. We’ve seen two game that seemed like they’d be high-scoring and with this being such an important game on both sides, I think we see a bit of a cautious approach here as to not be the first team to blink and make a mistake in this game. I expect the goaltending to be solid once again, and as such, I’ll be rolling with the under here.
