NHL Betting Trends
The Maple Leafs are 16-35 in their last 51 games as an underdog. Toronto is 4-9 in its last 13 road games.
The Blues are 4-1 in their last five games overall. St. Louis is 5-2 in its last seven games versus the Eastern Conference.
The Maple Leafs have struggled on the road and are one of the most disappointing teams in the NHL so far this season. Against the defending Stanley Cup champions who have mostly been playing solid hockey the last several weeks, I don't like their chances. With Binnington in goal, take the hosts tonight.
