Maple Leafs vs Golden Knights Over/Under Pick: Over 6 (-110)

Even though Vegas will be without two of its most skilled forwards (Jack Eichel and Mark Stone), the fact that defenseman Morgan Reilly is serving a five-game suspension is not good timing for the Maple Leafs since Toronto is already down a couple of defensemen.

The previous two times that there was a 6-goal total in a game between Toronto and Vegas, both games went over the total and don’t be surprised to see that happen again. That is something to consider for NHL over/under predictions.

 

Maple Leafs vs Golden Knights ATS Pick: Maple Leafs +1½ (-250)

The Maple Leafs have won five games in a row and are 4-1 in the last five games on the road. They are also undefeated in the last eight meetings with Western Conference teams.

Will any of those numbers matter when facing the defending champions, who will be eager to bounce back after a so-so performance on home ice in a loss to Nashville?

Vegas also has an extra day of rest while Toronto played on Wednesday. The Maple Leafs are 5-3 when playing in the second game of a back-to-back.
