Maple Leafs vs Rangers NHL Betting Analysis

Toronto plays well on the road. Check out the trend: 7-1 in their last 8 road games. But there’s another trend to counter that one. The Maple Leafs are 2-6 in their last 8 games as a favorite. That tells us that, often, the Leafs are road dogs.

Will they win as a road favorite on Wednesday night? They can but the odds don’t justify a wager. Based on the -141 assigned to the Maple Leafs, they should have no trouble against the Rangers. That’s not what will happen.

In the last head-to-head matchup, the Rangers beat the Maple Leafs 5-4. Not only that, but Toronto starting goalie Frederik Anderson won’t play on Feb. 5. Back the Rangers to pull off the upset at home.
