Over/Under Pick: Under 6½ (-120)

The under is 8-1 in the Hurricanes’ last nine home games against a team with a winning record.

Carolina goalie Frederik Andersen, the expected starter, has won five straight since returning from a long illness — allowing just seven goals.



ATS Pick: Maple Leafs +1½ (-155)

Expect a one-goal game for your NHL ATS picks. Joseph Woll is likely to be in net for Toronto and he is due for a better effort after going 2-2-0 since returning from injury.



Moneyline Pick: Hurricanes (-186)

This could go either way, but the rest and the motivation after a substandard defensive effort may give the Canes an edge.



Player Prop: Andrei Svechnikov Anytime Goal (+200)

The sniper is due to break out of a mini slump (five games without a goal) after registering four shots at Washington.

Score Prediction

Hurricanes 3, Maple Leafs 2: With Toronto’s Auston Matthews (NHL-best 58 goals), Nylander, Aho (11 points, five games) and Jarvis, among others, a low-scoring game may be a scary bet. But we think it will be playoff-style.



Questions of the Day

Will Carolina forward Jake Guentzel continue his hot streak?

Yes. Guentzel has two goals and nine assists in seven games since being acquired from Pittsburgh at the trade deadline.

Will Toronto post a power-play goal?

No. The Maple Leafs are 0-for-10 with the extra man in the last three games against Carolina.
