Toronto Maple Leafs
Toronto approaches the fight with Nashville in good condition. In the last four games, the team has three wins, one of which was a clean one - 4:3 over Ottawa, 2:1 (after a shootout) over Florida, and 4:3 (after a shootout) over Seattle. Also, they met with Boston, where they suffered a defeat, but only in overtime (3:4). The Maple Leafs are fighting to keep their place in the top-4 of the Atlantic Division. They are currently fourth with 30 points, just one more than fifth-place Tampa.
Nashville is far from worse than its upcoming opponent performs in the current elite. For 26 matches, they expanded their piggy bank by 28 points, the eighth indicator in the East and fifth in the Central Division. Since the Predators are locked in the playoff zone, they must pick up as many points as possible, which they are now confidently coping with. In the last three meetings, the Predators first beat Buffalo 2:1, then were stronger than Chicago (4:3), and lastly beat Tampa (5:1).
Expert Betting Tips
Toronto approaches the game as a clear favorite, which we don't quite agree with. Both teams are playing average hockey this season, as evidenced by their point difference (30 vs. 28). They are also in plus or minus equal condition, with three wins each in the last five meetings. On this basis, we do not recommend betting on the favorite, and it is better to look at the goals or their absence. Therefore, we suggest betting on a slightly overrated total under.
