NHL Betting Trends

St. Louis

The Blues are 5-1 in their last six road games. St. Louis is 44-18 in its last 62 games versus the Atlantic Division.


The Maple Leafs are 2-5 in their last seven home games. Toronto is 6-1 in its last seven Monday games.


The Blues are a defensive-minded team, but on the road at an explosive offensive team in Toronto I would rather take my chances on the hosts. The Maple Leafs will have their No. goalie in net and will want to bounce back from Saturday's disappointing result. I'm taking Toronto to get the job done here.
