Kings vs. Maple Leafs Pick

NHL Predictions: Will the Kings upset the Maple Leafs in Toronto? 10/23/17

Can the Los Angeles Kings pick up another road win when they take on the Toronto Maple Leafs at 7PM ET tonight?

According to oddsmakers at, the Maple Leafs are favored at home, as they are getting odds of -145 to win. The Kings are listed with a money line of +125 to win, while the over/under total for the contest has been set at 6 goals. Tonight’s contest takes place from the Air Canada Centre in Toronto, Ontario.

The Kings are coming off a 6-4 win at Columbus on Saturday. Los Angeles has now won four straight to get to 6-0-1 on the season and they are also 2-0 on the road. Los Angeles is putting up 3.86 goals per game this season while allowing 2.00 per game. Dustin Brown and Anze Kopitar each have 11 points to lead the Kings and the two have also combined for 11 goals. Jonathan Quick is posting a 1.99 GAA this season with a .938 save percentage.

Toronto is coming off a 6-3 loss at Ottawa on Saturday to fall to 6-2 on the season. The Leafs are 2-1 at home. The Leafs are scoring 4.63 goals per game while allowing 3.50 per contest. Auston Matthews is leading the team with seven goals and five assists while James van Riemsdyk has five goals. Frederik Andersen has a 3.41 GAA with a .892 save percentage.

Bet on Kings vs. Maple Leafs

There are a lot of reasons to go with the underdog Kings tonight. Los Angeles has won three straight in this series. Adding to that, the Leafs are just 2-8 in their last 10 against Pacific opponents and 1-4 in their last five games on 1 day of rest. The Leafs aren’t doing a great job of stopping goals, they are just out-scoring opponents. I am not sure that will work against Quick and a good Los Angeles attack. The public is slightly behind the Kings tonight as well
