My Team's Next MatchToronto Maple Leafs

While ancient history deserves a place (in museums) the not so distant past is as far back as bettors want to go when it comes to sports betting. That’s certainly not difficult to do with the technology that churns out statistics in the modern information age. The recent history between Montreal and Toronto is noteworthy as the Canadiens have raked the Maple Leafs ten straight times, by a 37-20 combined count, dating back to March 1, 2014. Six of those wins were decided in regulation time.

Toronto Maples Leafs @ Montreal Canadiens Prediction

BET MONTREAL (-190) MONEY LINE AT BODOG: Off to a red-hot start for the second year in a row, the Habs were 8-0-0 at this point last season, Montreal (7-0-1) is the only team in the NHL that still doesn’t have a loss in regulation time. Blowing leads has been trendy in Toronto as the Maple Leafs (2-2-3) have been equal parts decent and self-destructive during their first seven games.

Montreal vs Toronto: NHL Eastern Conference Original Six Preview

Bouncing up and down the East coast early in the season, Montreal opened their schedule on road with a 4-1 win over Buffalo (4-1) and a 4-3 shootout victory in Ottawa. Following two home wins over Pittsburgh (4-0) and Arizona (4-2) the Habs have alternated road and home games during their last four contests as they outscored the Bruins, Flyers, Islanders and Lightning by a 13-6 margin to build a six game winning streak. Stud netminder Carey Price (3-0 GAA 1.67) gets the start tonight.

Blowing up NHL twitter accounts around the globe, Toronto was the talk of planet after 2016 NHL first round draft pick Auston Matthews scored four goals during his Maple Leafs debut. However, in typical Toronto fashion, the Buds tarnished the occasion as they fell 5-4 in OT to Ottawa. Mathews added another two goals and four assists over his last six matches. Toronto has had a lead heading into the third period six times so far this season but they’ve posted a 2-1-3 mark in those contests.

NHL Betting Tip: Play With Your Brain as a Bettor – Not With Your Heart as a Fan 

Toronto and Montreal both won in their last match as the Maple Leafs posted a 3-2 home win over the Florida Panthers and the Canadiens won 3-2 vs the Lightning in Tampa Bay on Thursday. These teams have fans from coast-to-coast across Canada. Since it’s early in the 2016-17 NHL season, this is good time to remind puck bettors that they need to bet with their heads – not with their hearts. We’re looking at you Toronto fans as your team is outmatched at the Bell Centre tonight. Register a personal account, in a matter of mere minutes, and back Les Habitant at the Bodog Sportsbook.

As the 50th anniversary of the Montreal Expos nears, rumors intensify for the return of The ‘Spos to La Belle Province.

Stephen Bronfman, son of former Expos owner Charles, remains cautiously optimistic for a new era of Montreal Expos baseball.
