Devils @ Maple Leafs Game Preview

Toronto Maple Leafs

The Toronto Maple Leafs put together their best overall performance this season in a 5-0 win over Pittsburgh on Saturday night. While the offence struggled a bit in the games before Saturday, Toronto still owns the seventh-ranked offence in the NHL.

Even after scoring five goals on Saturday, the Leafs surprisingly own the lowest scoring home offence in the NHL (as they only managed 11 goals in their first seven home games). However, with some lineup adjusts in the wake of the Auston Matthews injury, they should climb up the rankings.

New Jersey Devils 

Despite strong power play production on the road, the New Jersey Devils have mainly struggled on the road this season. New Jersey lost eight of their last nine on the road (excluding their Tuesday game against Ottawa). It is still early in the season but New Jersey needs better play on the road to return to the postseason.

Game Snippet

The Devils and Maple Leafs have split their last ten meetings in one of the more balanced Eastern Conference matchups during the previous 15 years. New Jersey picked up three points in their two games in Toronto last season but was shutout by Frederik Anderson despite putting up 42 shots.

Both teams come in with victories over Pittsburgh in the last few days, combining to beat the Penguins 10-1.

Devils @ Maple Leafs Game Predictions

Moneyline Prediction

Even though Toronto has struggled on home ice this season, betting against Toronto at home remains a risky proposition. The Leafs won a franchise-record 29 games at home last season and should come close to that mark again this season.

New Jersey entered play on Tuesday losing eight of their last nine road games. While they are able to score on the power play, they have a hard time scoring any other way.

Andersen should see some action in the net on Friday (with the Leafs playing the first part of a back-to-back). Andersen is 4-2 against the Devils, with a .937 save percentage and 2.00 GAA, his best marks against an Eastern Conference opponent.

If the Leafs play a smart game (limiting power play opportunities) and Andersen continues his strong play against the Devils, they can win this game, even if their home offence continues to underperform.

Pick: Toronto Maple Leafs (-165) to Win Outright

Over/Under Prediction

While the Leafs should buck the trend of low-scoring home games at some point this season, until they put on a few consecutive offensive performances at home, betting the under is the better bet. Andersen is another reason to bet the under.

Since joining the Leafs, the majority of the games between these two teams have featured six goals or less. As long as the line stays at 6.0 (and does not move to 5.5), betting the under is a better bet as history says a line of 6.0 results in a win or push 80% of the time.

Pick: Under 6.0 (-110)
