PHI -110 O/U 6.5
Toronto Maple Leafs take on the Philadelphia Flyers on Tuesday at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The Toronto Maple Leafs are coming off a 2-1 win over the Buffalo Sabres in their last game, the Maple Leafs are on a good run of form as they have won four of their last five games.
The Maple Leafs have had a decent season as they are 13-11-4 on the season, but they are still 12 points off of top place in the Atlantic division lead do to the Boston Bruins having such a good season so far. Maple Leafs’ best player has obviously been Auston Matthews, who has 31 points already at this point in the season.
The Philadelphia Flyers are on a similar run of form at the Toronto Maple Leafs. The Flyers have won four of their last five games, in their last game they defeated Montreal 3-4. It took until overtime for the Flyers to gain their victory over the Canadians, but just 31 seconds into overtime, the Flyers scored and took home the victory.
The Philadelphia Flyers have also had a decent season, as their record stands at 15-7-5. The Flyers, although having a good record, are only third in their division due to the Washington Capitals, who have had a great season themselves. The Flyers defense is really where they are set apart from most of the pack, as Philadelphia only allows 2.7 goals per game, one of the best records in all of the NHL at the moment.
Toronto is 11-7 ATS this season.
Maple Leafs are 7-2 in their last 9 games as a road favorite
Philadelphia is 16-11 ATS this season.
Flyers are 6-1 in their last 7 when their opponent scores 2 goals or less in their previous game
Both teams have had a very similar season so far, and this one will be extremely difficult to pick. I think when a game is this close, it's the smart choice to go with the team that is playing at home. The Flyers also have a really good home record of 8-1-4, and that little stat is enough for me to pick the Flyers to win. Final score prediction, Philadelphia Flyers win 4-3.
