National Hockey League action comes to us from the PNC Arena in Raleigh, North Carolina when the Carolina Hurricanes host the Toronto Maple Leafs at 7 PM ET. Both of these teams are pretty evenly matched, with Toronto coming in with 16 points and the Hurricanes entering the game with 15 points. We are going to bet on the home Hurricanes on Thursday night.
Carolina Hurricanes: Trying to stave off good road team
Carolina comes into this game with an overall record of 7-4-1 and a 2-2-0 mark at home. Carolina has played the fewest games at home of any team in the Eastern Conference and will look to be a better home team when they hit the ice tonight for the first time in weeks. At home against the Maple Leafs, the Hurricanes have won two straight and seven of the last 10 games. Overall, Carolina has won nine of the last 12 games.
Toronto Maple Leafs: One of best road teams in the league
Toronto comes into tonight’s game with an overall record of 8-5-0 and a road record of 6-1-0. They are on a four-game winning streak and will look to win a fifth straight game on Thursday night for the first time in six seasons. The Leafs last lost a game on February 4 to Carolina, which was a 4-1 defeat at home. During their current winning streak, the Maple Leafs have outscored their opponents by a total of 17-6.
In what should be a very exciting NHL game on Thursday night, the Hurricanes host the Maple Leafs, one of the league’s best road teams. The Leafs will need all hands on deck to win this game, as Carolina is favored at home by a line of -1.5 (+195) on the sportsbook found at Sportsinteraction.com. We will bet 10 percent of our bankroll on the Hurricanes and the spread on Thursday night in Carolina.
