Bruins vs. Maple Leafs Pick

NHL Predictions: Will Bruins record victory at Maple Leafs? 2/24/18

Are the Boston Bruins going to take advantage of Auston Matthews being out of the lineup tonight when they play the host Toronto Maple Leafs at 7PM ET?


According to oddsmakers at YouWager, the Bruins are listed as a -125 favorite to win on the moneyline. The total is set at 5.5 goals.

Toronto opened as a -115 favorite before news of Matthews missing this game was released. The total has remained at 5.5 goals. The Bruins can be found as low as a -114 favorite at some books, while the total at many books is 6 goals.


As of Saturday afternoon, 75 percent of public bets have sided with the visiting Bruins. Online wager info also shows that 76 percent of bets are pouring in on the over.


Bruins defenseman Kevan Miller is probable to play tonight after sustaining an upper body injury. For the Maple Leafs, they will be without one of the NHL's most exciting young players in Matthews until early March as he recovers from a shoulder injury.


While Boston is only 1-6 in the last seven meetings, the absence of Matthews (28G, 22 A, 53 games) is a major void for Toronto. When considering the Bruins are tops in the NHL in goals-against average, missing a playmaker of Matthews' caliber can make all the difference. I'm going to pick Boston to win its third straight overall and second in a row over the Maple Leafs after six straight defeats.
