Each of the last 12 times that Toronto played in Colorado, the game went over the total. That is something to consider for NHL over/under predictions.

With the offensive talent on the ice led by Toronto’s Auston Matthews, the NHL’s leader with 52 goals, and Colorado’s Nathan MacKinnon, who is one of two players with more than 90 points this season, there could be plenty of goals scored in this  clash.


Maple Leafs vs Avalanche ATS Pick: Maple Leafs +1½ (-225)

Toronto has won six games in a row and is 5-1 in its last six road games with Matthews scoring goals at a dizzying pace.

Coming off a win on the road against the defending Stanley Cup champion Vegas Golden Knights, Toronto looks to take down the best home team in the NHL.

The Maple Leafs look to extend their winning streak to seven games and if nothing else, Toronto could cover as the road underdog.


Maple Leafs vs Avalanche Player Prop Pick: Mitchell Marner 2+ Points (+150)

While much of the attention has been on Matthews as he is on pace to score 76 goals, it is easy to overlook the fact that Mitchell Marner has six straight multi-point games as he has been setting up most of Matthews’ goals.

When it comes to the NHL hockey bets today, take a look at the +150 odds for Marner to have another multi-point game.
