Bet NHL Action For Monday, March 5, 2018

LINE MOVEMENT

Toronto opened as a -155 favorite before the line was bet up, while the total has remained at 5.5 goals. The Maple Leafs can be found anywhere from a -165 to a -180 favorite at various books, while the Sabres are ranking from +145 to +160.

PUBLIC BETTING

As of Monday afternoon, 76 percent of public bets are on Toronto to win. Online wager info also states that 73 percent of bets are coming in on the over.

INJURY TO WATCH

Maple Leafs star center Auston Matthews is out until mid-March with a shoulder injury. For the Sabres, defenseman Marco Scandella is questionable to play tonight with an upper body injury. Left winger Evan Rodrigues is doubtful to play with an upper body injury.

BETTING STRATEGY

Toronto has lost three in a row on the road, but all have been to tougher opponents than Buffalo. While this is a shot in the dark pick, I believe the Maple Leafs are showing signs they're playing better hockey and adjusting without Matthews. They now get an opponent that is vulnerable to getting throttled and is coming off a 4-1 loss at Florida. The Sabres are only 9-18-3-1 at home this season, while Toronto is a respectable 17-13-3-2 on the road. I like the Maple Leafs to put on an impressive performance here and cover the puck line. As bettors, we'll prosper nicely if that happens.
