Toronto Maple Leafs vs Columbus Blue Jackets NHL Odds, Picks, Live Score
Following 1,220 regular season matchups, there are ten contests left on the NHL 2016-17 schedule. Playoff positioning is on the line in three matches - including Toronto trying to nail down third place and Edmonton aiming to win the Pacific Division. Let’s examine the April 9, 2017, betting odds at the Bodog sportsbook.

Columbus Blue Jackets @ Toronto Maple Leafs Odds

Though it seems like forty, Toronto is back in the playoffs for the first time in four years. The Maple Leafs raked Pittsburgh 5-3 last night but work remains in the Centre of the Universe. Toronto avoids a first round series with Presidents’ Trophy winning Washington with a win or tie versus Columbus tonight. That would set up a Battle of Ontario as Ottawa and Toronto would square off in the Round of 16. The Maple Leafs are 4-0 vs the Senators, by a 16-8 count, during postseason action.

Teams can fall a little short following a playoff clinching win but we don’t see that happening with Toronto. There is no better NHL playoff coach on the Planet than Mike Babcock and he probably kept a tight reign during the post game celebration. This is a team loaded with rookies so they will be following the lead of their General. No one from the Leafs would admit it but – the Buds don’t want the Caps as their first round matchup. If they survive the first period – Toronto wins big.

Columbus owns third in the Metropolitan Division and they’ll face the Penguins to open the 2017 Stanley Cup playoffs. We can’t see the Blue Jackets being very focused – other than trying stay healthy. Joonas Korpisla (6-5-1 GAA 2.96) vs Curtis McElhinney (8-7-2 GAA 2.67) gives Toronto an edge in the battle of the backup goaltenders. Bodog has posted the Leafs with a -1.5 (+165) puck line and a (-170) ML price. Expect a hungry a bunch of Buds and lay the ATS price to back Toronto.

Best NHL Picks Tonight – April 9, 2017 – NHL Futures Update

While we will update the Stanley Cup futures odds later today, we are excited that our Anaheim Ducks Pacific Division winning tip is still is alive and well. The Ducks claim the title with a win or tie versus the Los Angeles Kings or an Edmonton loss versus Vancouver tonight. An Edmonton victory, coupled with a Ducks loss, would set up the first playoff Battle of Alberta since 1991. Wow, has it really been over a quarter century? For anyone who followed our Ducks call – there are several unique guaranteed hedges available including one on the Ducks vs Kings season ending contest.

Based on a 100 unit investment, our Anaheim call returns a 550 unit profit - but there is still a 100 negative risk in play. To cover our initial wager, we are betting 200 units on the LA Kings (+160) money line price. If the Kings and Oilers both win, our original invest is returned and we earn a 220 unit profit. If the Ducks win our original return drops to 350 units. In our eyes, futures betting is all about setting up guaranteed cash. We are backing up our Ducks call as outlined above. Hey, don’t forget to Follow Us on Facebook during the NHL playoffs – tell us who you like to claim the Cup!

April 9, 2017 NHL Betting Results: Toronto needed to go full throttle, to avoid Washington in the first round, so we backed the Buds who led 2-0 before falling 3-2 vs Columbus. That’s vintage Leafs from more than a few games this season. We felt good about our Anaheim hedge bet as the Ducks trailed the Kings 3-2 in the third but eventually won 4-3 in OT. Our futures tip on the SoCal Kids still returned a 350 unit stress-free guaranteed winner. We are covering every Canadian NHL squad for as long as they last in the Stanley Cup chase so check back for our pre-series picks and advice.
